Why Do AC Units Stop Working?
Understanding why your unit might break can help you identify potential problems early. If you call for a professional before problems escalate, you can avoid a sudden breakdown. Here are some key reasons why an AC unit might stop working:
Clogged Drain Line
This is one of the most common issues we see. Over time, debris and buildup accumulate in the drain line, leading to blockages. This is especially problematic with the hard water we tend to have in Hudson.
When buildup occurs, the unit’s built-in protection features detect water backing up into the system and automatically shut it off to prevent internal damage.
Regular cleaning and maintenance of the drain line will prevent this issue, but it’s also an easy fix for us to get your AC working again if this is the issue. We’re happy to show you how to check your drain line so you can give us a call to flush it before it backs up.
Leaking refrigerant is also extremely common. Refrigerant is how your AC cools the air, so without it, you get hot air.
The unit continues to run but fails to produce cool air. Adding more refrigerant is a simple fix to get the air running cool again, but we’ll also need to find and repair the leak.
Tripped breakers, blown fuses, or faulty wiring can all cause the unit to stop working. Looking for a tripped breaker or blown fuse is a great first step if your AC abruptly and completely stops working.
More advanced electrical problems require professional diagnosis and repair to ensure safe and effective operation.
A malfunctioning thermostat fails to signal the AC unit to start or stop at the right times, resulting in erratic operation or a complete shutdown. Replacing the thermostat is a simple solution. We typically have all thermostats on hand for an immediate fix.
Dirty or Clogged Filters
Air filters clogged with dust and debris restrict airflow, causing the unit to work harder, eventually causing overheating and shutdown.
Regularly replacing and/or cleaning air filters can prevent this issue. We offer air filter replacement as part of our standard maintenance package. Sometimes we can fix a unit that has been overheated to the point of breaking down, but sometimes a new unit may be necessary.
Mechanical Wear and Tear
Over time, mechanical components like fans and motors wear out. When the unit senses an essential component failure, it may stop working. Other times, you may notice a strange sound or poor performance before a compete shut down.
We can typically replace the worn-out component and have your unit up and running again.
Frozen Evaporator Coils
Evaporator coils can freeze due to low refrigerant levels, insufficient airflow, or other issues. It often happens when a unit has been working much harder than usual, such as during a heat stroke or when you have a leak in the vents.
A frozen coil often results in warm air, but may cause the unit to shut down. We’ll address what caused the freeze and get the evaporator coil back to work.
Signs Your AC Unit Needs To Be Repaired
When your unit shuts down completely you know you have a problem. However, there are often many signs of a problem to come well before the unit shuts down completely. Recognizing these signs is key to getting maintenance before you need repair:
- Warm Air: If you notice that your unit is blowing warm air, or if the air isn’t as cool as it should be, it’s a clear indication the system isn’t operating correctly.
- Shut offs: An AC unit shutting off unexpectedly and turning back on by itself can indicate an electrical issue or a malfunctioning thermostat.
- Water Leakage: Water leaking from the bottom pan of your AC unit indicates a clogged drain or an issue with the condensation process.
- Clogged Drain Pipe: It’s normal for the drain pipe outside your home to drip water as part of the AC’s condensation process. If there’s no water coming out, it could mean the pipe is clogged.
- Limited Airflow: If you’ve ramped up the fan but air isn’t really blowing out it may mean a blockage.
- Strange Odors: Unusual odors from your HVAC system could be a sign of mold, duct leaks, or other issues.
- Unusual Noises: New sounds like rattling, buzzing, grinding, whistling, or clanking often point to a mechanical problem.
Being proactive will prevent the cost and hassle of emergency repairs. If you notice any of these issues, don’t hesitate to contact Millian Aire for a thorough inspection and repair BEFORE your system shuts down.

AC maintenance services typically include inspection and cleaning of all system components, checking and refilling refrigerant levels, cleaning the outdoor coils and the primary pan & drain line, removing debris from the outdoor unit, checking for ductwork leaks, and calibrating the thermostat.
3. What is the difference between 6-month and 12-month HVAC maintenance schedules?
The choice between a 6-month and a 12-month maintenance schedule depends on your living conditions and the age of your system. Live on the water or have an older system? A 6-month schedule is recommended. For newer systems that get less sun and salt, an annual check might suffice.
