This is a common summer heat wave problem in Georgia. The air conditioner in your home is whirring and humming to keep the house cool. Suddenly, it stops: no fans, no air from the vents, no cooling, nothing. Not even a sound from it. You go to check the electrical panel (and this is the first place to look when the AC stops working) and discover the circuit breaker labeled for the air conditioner has tripped.
You can reset the breaker to get the air conditioner working once more. But why did this happen in the first place and is it a sign of trouble with the air conditioner that may need to be fixed?
