There is nothing worse than coming home after a long day at work or running errands to find your Mt. Pleasant, SC, home is no longer cool and comfortable. Failing air conditioners in the summer months make life difficult for anyone, but sometimes a simple fix is all that is required.

Before calling for an AC repair technician, take a few minutes and check out these common system problems.

Power Issues

Sometimes a circuit can be tripped, or a fuse can burn out, preventing any power to the AC unit. A quick check of the breaker box can verify if these issues may be the problem. If the breaker is tripped, flip it back on and monitor the issue. If it trips again or the replaced fuse blows, leave it off and call our AC repair team.

Thermostat Issues

If the AC unit is not turning on, but there is power, it may be a thermostat setting. Check to make sure the unit is programmed correctly and that settings have not been accidentally changed. This is easy to do, especially with the new “smart thermostats” that can be changed through phone apps.

For thermostats with batteries, make sure the batteries are not showing as low, or the need to replace alert is not flashing.

Clogged Filters

For issues with low levels of cool air while the system seems to work, check to make sure the filters are not clogged with dust and dirt. Our AC repair technicians can also replace filters and check out the system completely, just get in touch with us online at and we can schedule a visit to your Mt. Pleasant, SC, home.
