As the summer heat in Indianapolis intensifies, a functioning air conditioner becomes essential for comfort and safety. But what do you do when your AC suddenly stops working? Mowery Heating, Cooling & Plumbing is here to guide you through the steps to take during an emergency HVAC breakdown.

1. Stay Calm and Assess the Situation

First and foremost, don’t panic. Take a moment to assess the situation. Is the AC completely unresponsive, or is it making unusual noises? Check the thermostat settings to ensure it’s set to “cool” and the temperature is correctly adjusted.

2. Check for Simple Issues

Before calling for professional help, rule out simple issues:

  • Power Supply: Ensure the AC unit is plugged in and the circuit breaker hasn’t tripped.
  • Air Filters: Dirty filters can restrict airflow and cause the AC to shut down. Replace them if necessary.
  • Thermostat Batteries: If your thermostat is battery-operated, replace the batteries to see if that resolves the issue.

3. Turn Off the System

If the AC is malfunctioning or making strange noises, it’s best to turn it off to prevent further damage. Locate the shut-off switch near the indoor unit or at the circuit breaker.

4. Call Mowery Heating, Cooling & Plumbing
