Air Conditioner won’t turn on
The thermostat is not set correctly or the power to the unit is off.
Make sure that your thermostat is set to “cool” and the temperature is set to the
correct temperature. Some newer thermostats operate on battery power. Make
sure it has fresh batteries. You will also want to check your circuit breaker and
ensure that the system has not tripped a fuse.
System not cooling the same
Airflow is essential to cooling your home. System cooling issues can be traced
to issues with airflow.
Change your filters regularly. Depending on your lifestyle, the number of
people that live in the home, and if there are any pets, the filters should be
changed every 30 to 60 days. The outdoor condenser must have a minimum of
24” of clearance on all four sides and top. The condenser can not reject the
heat properly if objects are placed directly next to it. You should also check your
air supply, returns, and grills for obstructions.
High utility bills
High spikes in your electric bill can mean that your unit is no longer running
efficiently. After the air filters are replaced the most likely cause can be a dirty
outdoor condensing coil. The fins that encapsulate the refrigerant line build up
dirt & debris and choke airflow. The condenser can not reject the heat
efficiently and the system run for longer times.
Unfortunately, to properly clean the condenser coil and remove the leaves and
dirt that build up inside the unit, a qualified Complete Pro Air technician is
required to ensure that the electrical components and fins are not damaged.
Proper refrigerant balance is also crucial. An 18 SEER system undercharged or
overcharged with refrigerant by 20% can function as a 9 SEER system,
essentially costing significantly more to operate. We also offer programmable
thermostats that can set a higher temperature while away during the day to
reduce energy usage.
System is loud
Is your system loud at start up or during normal operation? if the system has
not been properly maintained, fan blades, screws, motors, grills can are
loosen and vibrate. Other times the noise is caused by a bad motor, bent fan
blade, or a worn compressor.
During a precision tune up by a qualified Complete Pro Air technician, these
motors, fan blades, screws and grills are adjusted and lubricated to ensure it
is running at peak performance. The system pressures are diagnosed and the
compressor and supporting parts are examined. Complete Pro Air also offers
System Rejuvenation. This service quiets the compressor & valves and helps
the system run more efficient. Rejuvenate your system today!
Unit will not kick on
The heart of the system, the compressor, could be burnt-out
To replace a system compressor is a costly job. It includes replacing several
small parts, cleaning out existing copper lines, and installing new refrigerant.
Depending on the type of refrigerant in your system, the cost could equal the
price of a new system. If the unit is more than 8 years old, we recommend
We will always recommend you call a qualified & certified

running well in order to create a comfortable home

Water leaks by air handler
The air conditioning system in your home was originally designed to remove
humidity and condition the air. Your air handler condensates water on the
coil. This water drips down from the coil and collects in a pan, then drains to
the outside of the home. If water is found on the floor or ceiling, it is possible
that a drain components have build up debri and clogged.
Inspect the drain line outside of the home for a clog or animal intrusion. Often
times a clog can be removed by attaching a wet vac and clearing the line. If
cleaning this line does not stop this issue, please call a qualified Complete Pro
Air technician for repairs.
