If your circuit breaker has tripped, there’s probably nothing you can do, but sometimes it’s worth a try. Locate your breaker panel and look for the breaker labeled “A/C”. It’s often one of the larger breakers — 20 to 40 amps. If the breaker is tripped, try turning it off and back on again.
Air flow is very important to any central HVAC system. Bad things happen when airflow is reduced below the design specifications. On an air conditioning system, two things in particular can happen when your filters get so clogged they choke your system’s air flow: (1) Reduced refrigerant pressure– The low side pressure can be reduced which then can cause your system to freeze up. (2) Shortened blower life– The blower moves the cool air through your home. Reduced airflow creates additional blower load that will increase your power usage and reduce the life of your blower.
