It depends on why it went out.

Your Homeowners policy covers damage resulting from certain perils such as fire wind hail, lightning etc

If it's just old ac unit and in need of replacement or repair then NO. Your homeowners insurance does not provide coverage for homeowners normal maintenance and updates.
