Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

We have our air set at 72, but it now says that it is 77 degrees in the house. It was blowing air, but now it has stopped.

    I have a similar problem with the central air. The thermostat is set at 75, but the house is 83. We stayed at a hotel last night and I turned the system off overnight. I came home this morning and flipped the AC back on. It blew cold air for a couple minutes and then shut down.



    I periodically hear the click of the system turning on but then nothing happens. Any ideas? Thx.

Hi Kneil,

There could be several things causing your problem, so I will ask you some questions to narrow down the problem,

Do you have central air?
Does the system shut off before the thermostat is satisfied?
Is the evaporator coil freezing up?
Is there a float switch or other device installed to prevent over flow of condensate line?

    Hi Kelly,



    What type of a/c system do you have? a split system, meaning one unit outside and one inside? Can you determine which one stays running? It could be a number of things, we need to narrow down the possibilities.

My Honeywell thermostat isnt keeping my house cool even though the temp is set to 69. Currently 90 degrees in here


Its probably not the thermostat. The air conditioner may be stuck on heating mode. If its a reverse cycle, the reversing valve may be jammed so even when the thermostat is calling for cold air, it stays on heat. If the machine is on heating mode, it should be blowing cold air out of the outdoor unit of the air con. If its on cooling mode, the outdoor should be blowing hot air.

I have a Braeburn 3200 and when the the temperature reaches the desired heat setting. The furnaces heat will shut off, but the fan will continue to run indefinetly. eventually blowing very cold air up


The fan relay is stuck in the on position. When the temperature drops the heater does not ignite because the fan is already running and ignition is locked out after the heat cycle starts an the fan turns on

Our furnace runs great all day, but at night and early morning it stops. The house drops 5-6 degrees between 2am and 8am. If I try to adjust our thermostat, it will kick on and only run for 1-2 minutes...


Hello
Sounds like the t sat may be faulty or have a bad anticipator,usually there is a 2 to 4 degree swing before the unit will start.

Also have a look at the location of the stat is it very close to anything giving off heat?If this is a programable stat try reprograming it or check what you have it set for.

HEater is heating outside but not blowing warm air thru the vents inside the house. May blow air for 10 mins but then stops. I have the temp. set at 76 degrees but it is 48 degrees in my house right now.


sounds like you may have some restriction in the heater or overtemp sensor is kicking out to soon, clean everything thourghly, check fan and oil bearing, check safety circuits in furnace wiring, refer to owners manual trouble shooting guide

Carrier Air Conditioner- not reaching set temperature


if it is set to 76 degrees and its 78 in the house its working fine it is suppose to shut off once it reaches 76 but sometimes there is a 1 or 2 degree differential built ini would keep you filter clean and as long as it blows out cold air i wouldnt be to concerned most airconditioners need yearly cleanings though

House is not cooling but it is blowing 60 degree air from my vents right now it is 83 degrees outside and 81 degrees inside


check to see if there is a 20 degree split between supply and return air. If its less than 20 than it might be low on charge.

Air Handler Blower


if you have a meat thermometer, place it in the vent when the air is on, it should be cooling somewhere around 15-18 degrees F lower than what actually temp is, so if its 84 degrees, your unit should blow around 67 degree air out of the vent. if it is not call a tech. your system could be under or over charged.

Honeywell T8112 Air Conditioner Will Not Cool, But Blower Works


make sure the system switch is in the cool position, then press run program button and allow a couple of minutes for system to cycle on, if it doesn't come on press the button for lowering the set point, set it to 72 degrees and then press the hold temperature key.
