With over 20 years of providing heating and air conditioning service for thousands of customers we have responded to a lot of service calls and found these to be the most common and very simple things that most homeowners can check for themselves and resolve the problem with their air conditioner or heating pump system. If; however you are uncomfortable with checking any of these things then you should call for service and let one of our certified technicians check the system for you.
1. Check the settings on the thermostat.
2. Make sure your air filter(s) is clean.
3. Check the power supply.
4. Check the ductless mini split heat pump for errors / flashing lights.
5) Check for freezing up of the indoor unit.
6) Check the breakers on the front panel.
7) Is the secondary drain pan overflowing from a clogged “P” trap or condensate line?
If you are uncomfortable checking any of these things always call for service and let the technician resolve the issue for you.
Sometimes there could be more than one problem even if you find any of the above issues. For example, a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker could be the result of a failed electrical device that needs to be repaired or replaced. These are out of the scope of most homeowners ability to repair not only from a technical perspective but also from a safety perspective.
Some homeowners will go too far in trying to repair their own system which can end up doing more damage to the system and it may be best to wait for a technician. Please DO NOT put you or your family in danger trying to repair something yourself. Your checks should be measured and limited to your comfort level in the list above. Anything outside of that needs to be taken care of by a trained professional. Good Luck!!
