Question about Friedrich Heating & Cooling
To fix a cooling problem in AC you must know the cooling process that the condenser (outside unit) pulls in the house's warm air and cools it with Freon. The cold air is then forced back into your home through the duct system. Of course if you have a window unit, this process takes place in a more limited area. Before calling a professional, here's a checklist.
Check your thermostat. It may be set on heat instead of cool. Even if the thermostat is set to a temperature below room temperature the unit will not turn on if it is set to heat.
Check your filter. This is paramount as a dirty air filter will restrict air flow and limit the efficiency of the condenser to cool the air. Typically it is recommended that the air filter be changed every month but there are some on the market today that require three month replacement. Make sure the exhaust vents in all the rooms are open and free from debris. If your duct system is in the ceiling make sure they are fully open. If the system exhausts through the floor make sure they are fully open and not covered by shoes, clothing, furniture and/or household items.
The outside unit should be free of any obstructions or debris as this will reduce the amount of air passing through the condenser.
If these items have been checked and the unit is still not running call a repair person for cleaning the condenser and checking the Freon level.
