You’ll want to start by turning off your home’s thermostat. Next, head down to your electrical panel box and locate the breaker that is connected to your home air conditioning system. Flip the breaker to the off position and wait for one minute. Then, proceed to flip the breaker back to the on position.
Once you flip the breaker back on, your system will start to internally reset. You’ll need to give it a solid 30 minutes to do so. Don’t attempt to turn the thermostat back on until 30 minutes have passed. When it’s time to turn your thermostat back on, it should kick the air conditioning system back on.
If your centralized home air conditioning system doesn’t kick back on after a couple of minutes, check the temperature. If it’s reading near your desired temperature setting, then turn the thermostat down five degrees. This should cause your thermostat to kick the air conditioning system on. If your AC system still doesn’t kick on, then it’s time to call in an air conditioner professional to help.
