Welcome to One Hour TV! This is Jim from One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning! I have a few questions for you:

Is your air conditioner blowing hot air?
Does one room feel warmer than another?
Is your air conditioner constantly running, but nothing seems to be happening

If so, I have some helpful information that could help your system get back to producing comfortable air. These are the 7 helpful steps you can take:

Step 1: Check your thermostat setting. Make sure it's set to "cool." Replace the batteries on your programmable thermostat. Then, set your thermostat 10 degrees colder than the indoor temperature to get a clear gauge if your A/C is operating properly. Listen for fans running in both your air handling unit and your condensing unit.

Step 2: Test your thermostat's accuracy with another temperature gauge. If they do not match, your thermostat may be out of calibration and needs to be reset. To do so, reference the manufacturer's instructions.

Step 3: Check the power to your unit. A circuit breaker may be tripped. In that case, flip the switch. This should not happen often—if it does, consult a licensed HVAC technician. Also, check the master switches to both your inside and outside units, and make sure both are on and receiving electricity.

Step 4: Press your air conditioner's reset button. By resetting the unit, it can clear some of the minor mechanical issues that may cause the system to act irregularly.

Step 5: Go to the air conditioner return vent and change your filter. Dirt restricts air flow, can cause problems, and impact the temperature of your home. As a rule of thumb, change your filter every month.

Step 6: Clear grass, weeds, anything that may be obstructing airflow, and clean your condensing unit with a commercial coil cleaner. It's recommended that you do not open up the unit! Damage can easily be done to the fans and can drastically shorten the life of your system!

Step 7: Make sure none of your air vents are blocked! Nothing should be obstructing them, including drapes and furniture; they can restrict air flow and impact a room's temperature.

Those are my 7 steps you can take to repair your air conditioner. If your system still acts irregularly after following them, it likely needs servicing.
