How Do I Reset My Air Conditioning Unit?

Whether you notice your air conditioning system isn’t functioning properly, or it’s not blowing out cold air, knowing how to reset your unit can help you get it running efficiently once again.

For everything heating and cooling in Ventura County, trust the pros at Aladdin.

Now, let’s cover exactly how to properly reset your AC unit.

Turn Off Your Air Conditioner

The first step in the process will be to turn off the AC on your thermostat. It’s important to do this step first because your system may fail to reset properly if it’s not done in the correct order.

Switch Off The Circuit Breaker

After you’ve turned off the thermostat, find your circuit breaker box. Locate the breaker that is linked to your AC unit and turn it off. If you do not know where your breaker box is located, a good place to look is in a basement, crawl space, or closet.

Turn It All Back On

After you switch off the circuit breaker, wait a full minute before returning power to your AC unit.

DO NOT immediately turn your thermostat on after returning power from the breaker. We recommend you wait 30 minutes before performing turning on the thermostat again.

After the 30 minutes are up, turn the thermostat on to the cooling function. If your AC kicks on right away, you’ve fixed the issue. If it doesn’t, make sure to set the cooling temperature at least 5 degrees cooler than the temperature in your home.

If it still doesn’t work, contact the AC repair experts at Aladdin Air Conditioning & Heating to diagnose the problem.
