TROUBLESHOOTING CHECKLIST: NO COOLING

If you’re having trouble with your air conditioner or cooling system, you can always call our offices for help and service. However, here are a few simple suggestions to try before setting up a service appointment.

Check to make sure that the thermostat is set in the COOL position.

Make sure that the temperature setting on the thermostat is set LOWER than the current indoor temperature.

Ensure that there’s power to the air conditioner/condenser.

Check the circuit breakers in the electrical panel and make sure they are all in the ON position.

Check the outdoor unit “disconnect switch” to make sure it is in the ON position. The disconnect switch is located near the outdoor unit and is normally within a gray 8” box mounted to the house.

Is there any air coming out of your vents?

Always make sure you routinely change out your filters as directed to ensure peak performance.

In addition, check all return air grilles and registers to make sure they are not blocked by furniture and are open and blowing air.
