  • Have you replaced the batteries in the thermostat? (Some modern thermostats are battery powered)
  • Is the thermostat set to the “cool” mode or setting?
  • Is the thermostat temperature setting turned down lower than the room temperature?

  • Is there frost anywhere on the pipes going to and from the inside unit to the outside unit? If so, your system has frozen up. Follow these steps to thaw your system:
    • At the thermostat, turn the system mode switch to the “off” position and turn the fan mode switch to the “on” position
    • Let the fan run for 2 to 4 hours.
    • While the system is thawing, double check all of the items from the checklist above.
    • After the system has thawed, return your thermostat to its normal settings. (above 70°F)
    • If the system freezes up again, schedule a service call.
  • Has your air conditioner had its annual factory service?

If all of the above items check out and the system still doesn’t cool, it’s time to schedule a service call.
