Air Conditioning Unit Runs But No Cool Air in Akron, OH
This customer’s unit was at least 9 years old, as best as he could guess. This problem is common in older models and the causes range from simple to complex. Check to see if your filter has clogged, make sure the unit is not set to “fan only,” and see if the fuse that controls the outdoor unit has blown.
If none of these are the cause, then you’ll need to call a technician. We will come to your home and check for a variety of problems. We’ll look to see if the unit is low on refrigerant, which could be caused by a leak. We’ll also check to see if the compressor has a seized motor or if you simply need a new capacitor. No matter what the problem, we’ll quickly diagnose it and have your system running as soon as possible.
Air Conditioning Tune-Up Needed in Stone Creek, OH
A lady called us because she believed her air conditioner was not working as well as it should. It was cooling, it just wasn’t cooling as effectively as she wanted. She asked us if we could come out and perform an AC tune-up.
This is a service we perform annually for many of our customers. It’s a great idea to have your unit checked before the hot season begins so that you’ll have a better chance at getting through summer without any problems. At Arco, we perform many services as part of a tune-up, including checking safety controls, measuring volts and amps, inspecting and lubricating all moving parts, and much more.
Outside Cooling Unit Return Line Freezing in Avon Lake, OH
This customer built his home in 1991 and still had the original air conditioner. The line running from the outside unit had frozen and the system was not cooling inside as a result.
This is usually caused by reduced airflow of some kind caused by a dirty air filter or some sort of obstruction in the path of the air handler. If you live in a home with several rooms that have closed vents, the evaporator may freeze due to the change in cooling load. The cause could be something more serious, such as a failed blower motor. If you have an older model, you should call Arco once a year so that we can completely inspect your system.
