BROKEN AIR CONDITIONER REPAIR
BEFORE CALLING GEORGIAN HOME COMFORT FOR SERVICE
To avoid the expense and wait time for a service call for your furnace or air conditioner, we recommend you check these troubleshooting tips before calling us for service:
- Check for correct settings on your thermostat.– Make sure your system is set to Heat, Cool or Auto and the temperature is at the proper comfort set-point. Also, if your thermostat uses batteries, check whether they need to be replaced.
- Check your circuit breakers.– Located in your main electrical panel, which is usually found in the basement or the garage. These breakers are required by code to be labeled as to what each one goes to in your home.
- Check the power switches.– The furnace power switch looks like a light switch and is usually located on the side of the equipment or at the ceiling above the unit.
- Ensure that furnace access panels are fully re-installed after filter replacements.– There is a safety switch, that if not properly engaged, will prevent equipment from operating properly.
- Check your air filter.– Dirty air filters are a common cause for calls, causing air within your furnace or air conditioner to reach extremes in temperature and dramatically reducing the airflow to where it is needed. Air filters are generally inexpensive and readily available. Call us if you need help finding the correct size for your unit.
- Check for an obstructed airflow.– This is sometimes caused by relocating furniture in your home, (which can block air circulation grills), registers located around the perimeter of your home being closed, or a plugged air filter.
- Did you shut down too many registers in unused rooms?– Residential units are not designed to have major restrictions to their airflow, so be careful not to close down too many registers.
- Is anything blocking the AC condenser outside? It is critical that there is nothing blocking the airflow – including weeds/foliage growing up around the unit.
