If your Air Conditioning in Davenport, FL is having problems cooling your home or business, there is a trouble shooting checklist you ought to go through before calling a repair tech. For example, if nothing is running, your thermostat may be improperly set. By setting the thermostat to the correct temperature, everything just may work perfectly, and you have saved yourself the expense of a service call. Another possible cause is a tripped circuit breaker. Once you reset the breaker, everything should work just fine.

Another problem is that your system is running, but there is no air flow. This could be due to a dirty air filter. Changing the filter may solve the problem. Another reason for the problem may be an airflow obstruction other than a dirty filter. You need to look for a blocked return, collapsed ducts, or other air blockages. Once you have removed the blockage, everything should work normally. Sometimes a system malfunction will result in no air flow. By turning it off and then back on, the system may reset itself and work properly.

If you notice that your utility bills are higher than normal, it could mean that your outdoor coil is dirty. After cleaning the coil, everything should return to normal. Another cause is a dirty air filter which is easily corrected by replacing it with a clean filter. Other causes include an air leakage in the air handler or duct work, low refrigerant, or your heat is running simultaneously with the cool. These may require a service tech if the thermostat wires are damaged or an air handler is leaking.
