Your System Isn’t Cooling Properly

Refrigerant – If your equipment is 10+ years old, it could be low, or you may have a leak that needs to be repaired.

Sensor Problems – When a sensor becomes dislodged or broken, it can affect the on-off cycle of your equipment.

Thermostat Issues – If the AC cycles correctly but the internal temperature is off, the thermostat may need attention.

Drainage Problems – A clogged drain from the equipment can cause system problems.

Dirty Air Filter – A dirty air filter can limit the airflow and system efficiency.
Your Equipment Isn’t Turning On

Electric Control Failure – From worn compressor and fan controls to issues with your wiring, a number of electrical issues can plague aging and worn air conditioning equipment.

Thermostat – Something as simple as new batteries can be the solution to your system not turning on.

You’re Getting Limited Air Flow

Ductwork problems – Leaks in your home’s ductwork can let cold air escape, causing significant inefficiencies and limited airflow.

Dirty Air Filter – A clogged air filter can not only affect energy costs, but it can restrict airflow and put unnecessary stress on your equipment.
