Tips for your AC
Delaying service on your HVAC system is like not changing the oil in your
car. Sooner or later, something is going to break — and the longer
you wait, the worse it’s likely to be. Contact Us today!
One of the most common calls for service that we receive is: the AC is
NOT Cooling or the AC is Blowing Hot AirTry these 4 easy steps to check
before calling for service: 1. Check Thermostat, 2. Check Filters, 3.
Check Drain Line, 4. Check Breakers
How to check the Thermostat. Make sure that the thermostat is placed on cooling. If the thermostat
does not appear to be working properly, check the batteries in the thermostat
and replace them if need be. If the thermostat appears dirty and needs
cleaning, simply open the face of the thermostat and dust/wipe off dirt
gently to not damage delicate parts. If the thermostat is working properly
then lets go to check the filters
How do I check the Filters? First try to determine the last time the filters were changed. If it has
been over 30 days, then YES it is time to change the filters. Dirty filters
can cause your AC system to NOT cool or even blow hot air. The result
of this would be icing the evaporator coil. So, changing filters on a
monthly basis will prevent AC unit from breaking down. Call us (210) 723-8998
if the filters are too high up to reach and we will change them out for you.
How do I check the Drain Line? The drain line is located at the bottom of the evaporator coil. If you
do not feel comfortable checking this feature, then call me at (210) 723-8998
and I will do this for you. Otherwise, Go to your unit and make sure that
you do not see any water in your secondary pan.
How do I check the Breakers? Call us at (210) 723-8998 if you’d like. There are indoor and outdoor
breakers. Make sure the breakers are not tripped for indoor or outdoor
unit. Also, if these appear OK, then check the master breaker panel on
the side of the house NOT in the garage.
If the issue in not resolved, then call us for service at (210) 723-8998.
