Your refrigerant could be low or leaking. Call a trained technician to repair and recharge the system.
There are two types of refrigerant (also know as freon), R-22 and R-410A. If your system was manufactured before January 1, 2010 it may use R-22. If it was manufactured after January 1, 2010, your system will use R-410A refrigerant.
Check your thermostat to make sure it is set properly and it is reading the correct temperature.
And if your programmable thermostat runs on batteries, don't forget to change them each year. Some units will indicate when batteries need to be changed.
Check your unit's drain to make sure it isn't clogged. If plugged, the drain can cause water damage in the house, affect indoor humidity levels, and breed bacteria and mold.
When our technicians service your a/c or heat pump, the condensate drain is checked and cleared, if necessary, in order to avoid any of these potential problems.
A clogged filter restricts airflow through the unit, decreasing its efficiency and reducing its ability to effectively cool the air.
Check your filter once a month and change it at least every three months.
Quick tip! Before you install a new filter, write the date of installation on the side.
