3 Items to Check Before You Call

Sometimes there’s a minor issue affecting your AC performance that you can fix yourself and save the cost of a service call. Check these 3 things before calling Carr or any other HVAC professional.

  • Replace the batteries in your thermostat. Dead batteries in your thermostat are a commonly overlooked problem with an easy and obvious solution to many AC issues.
  • Inspect your vents and filters. Dirty or clogged filters and vents can seriously degrade AC system performance. Filters should typically be replaced every 3 to 4 months.
  • Check your circuit breaker. If the breaker for your AC unit has been tripped, resetting it may address your problem. Of course, if it continues to trip, you’ll need to call in a professional.

If you’ve checked these items and your system is still not working properly, call us.

Signs AC Repair is Needed
  • Poor cooling performance (ongoing or intermittent). 
    • This could indicate a coolant leak, drainage issues, or a combination of factors.
  • System keeps running (even once a comfortable temperature is reached). 
    • Thermostat or control system issues are the likely sources for this problem.
  • The system is dead. It simply flat-out doesn’t work. 
    • A substantial system failure can involve a long list of potential issues, but we would focus first on electric and electronic controls, sensors, and components.
  • Poor airflow and humidity.  
    • Clogged filters and damaged ductwork top the list of suspects for this problem.
  • Not all rooms are receiving cool air. 
    • Ductwork leaks, clogs, improperly adjusted baffles, and inappropriately sized ducts are all on the short list for this issue.

Get a proper HVAC diagnosis before you get a prescription!

Of course, without examining your system we’re only able to provide the most likely causes of the above problems. Don’t listen to an HVAC “expert” who wants to sell you a solution before knowing what the problem is. Out technicians will assess the situation, identify the specific factors resulting in the poor performance of your system, and provide expert advice on what work should be done. Is your air conditioning not performing to your expectations? Call Carr today.
