Before You Call Us, Try These Simple Tricks from Our Cooling Experts

Many people pick up the phone and call for service when something isn’t working right. If you follow our guide below, you may find that the problem is something you can easily fix yourself. If you are uncomfortable with checking any of these things then you should call for service and let one of our cooling technicians check these things.

Ensure that there’s power to the air conditioning unit.

  • Try turning the fan to “ON” on the thermostat to test for power to A/C
  • If nothing happens, reset the breakers at the electrical panel, especially if the thermostat is showing a blank reading

Make sure air is coming out of your vents.

  • Check all return air grilles and registers. Make sure they are not blocked by furniture and are open and blowing air. 

Check your thermostat’s batteries

  • Some thermostats still operate on batteries, even if they are also wired to the home. If the rest of your house has power, but the display on your thermostat is out, check the batteries to see if that fixes the problem

Check your air filters

  • If it’s been more than a couple of months since you changed your air filter you should check to see if that’s the problem. Your HVAC system could be providing irregular heat due to clogged filters. 

Is your A/C unit cycling on and off?

  • Make sure an air register isn’t blowing directly on your thermostat
  • Change your air filter
  • Check the refrigerant
  • If these don’t solve the problem, your unit unit may be wrongly sized – in this case you’ll need to consult with an expert

Make sure your power and gas are on

  • There could be power outages in your area.
  • Sometimes a gas company will turn off gas service because they detected a leak. Check your meter for a red tag or a lock on the gas valve leading to the meter.

Remove obstructions from the outside unit

  • Leaves, grass, and debris can block the unit from providing airflow to your home. If possible, make sure there’s a three-foot radius around the unit to give it enough room to provide healthy air flow to your home.

Check to see what temperature your thermostat is set at.

  • Make sure that the temperature setting on the thermostat is set higher than the current indoor temperature.
  • Make sure the thermostat is set to the heat position.

If you have an air handler, check the following:

  • Make sure the panel switch did not come loose for whatever reason. Panel switches ensure power is cut off to the air handler if the panel is loose or removed.
  • Check the secondary pan to see if it’s flooded with water. If so, you have a clogged condensation line and it needs unclogged before the system operates normally again.

Check your condensate lines

  • These lines can become obstructed for various reasons. Try blowing compressed air into the line to dislodge any obstructions, then pour a solution of half-bleach and half-water through the line to get rid of any mold. 

Is your air conditioner freezing up?

  • Dirty air filters can cause your system to freeze up because it impedes the airflow. Check your filter to see if it needs replaced. 
  • Other causes could be dirty coils, a broken air handler fan, obstructed vents, or a low refrigerant charge

Make Your Decision Based on Comfort, Not Budget

Your HVAC system affects how you feel every moment when you’re at home. It also accounts for half of the energy your home uses every month. Having a reliable, energy-efficient heating and cooling unit provides you peace of mind. Many homeowners are faced with a decision to repair their older, less-efficient unit, or to replace it with a new energy-efficient system. Consumer financing can be a useful tool to fit a new system into your budget without breaking your bank. Every dollar you spend moving up to a higher-efficiency system can produce comfort and energy savings you’ll appreciate for years to come.

Cooling and A/C Terminology to Know

There are many words and acronyms used in the HVAC industry that experts use throughout their conversations. It’s easier to make an informed decision when you know the common terms.

Air Handler
A device used to regulate and circulate air as part of an HVAC system. It’s usually a large metal box containing a blower and heating or cooling elements.

Air Flow
The direction in which the distribution of air occurs.

AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency)
A measure of how efficiently your furnace can utilize its fuel. The more efficient your furnace, the more heat you will get per unit of fuel.

Boot
The sheet metal transition piece that connects to the duct on one side and has a grille or register on the other.

Checking the charge
Determining how much refrigerant is in the system. When your AC guy puts his gauges on the system, he’s measuring the pressure of the refrigerant to see if you have the right amount.

Coil
Used to increase or decrease temperature via heat transfer.

Compressor
The part of your air conditioner responsible for most of the noise. It sits in the outside part of your A/C unit and raises the temperature and pressure of the refrigerant.

Fan Coil Unit
A device that uses a coil and a fan to heat or cool a room without connecting to ductwork.

Geothermal heat pump
The standard heat pump dumps or pulls heat to or from the outside air. A geothermal heat pump dumps or pulls heat to or from the ground or a body of water. Sometimes it’s referred to as a ground source heat pump (GSHP).

Grille
The type of non-operable cover you see in return vents.

Heat Pump
Heat pumps transfer heat into or out of your home, keeping you comfortable all year long.

Refrigerant
The working fluid that carries the heat. Most current air conditioners use either R-22, which began its phase-out in 2010, or R-410a. Before the Montreal Protocol to protect the ozone layer, most AC refrigerants were CFCs. R-22 is an HCFC, and R-410a is an HFC.

Split system
An air conditioner with one box outside (the condensing unit) and one box inside (the air handler and evaporator coil), connected by the refrigerant lines.

Zoning
This is a method of heating or cooling different areas (or rooms) within one house independently – usually by using separate controls, or by opening and closing dampers within ducts in each zone.
