​DIY solutions to try before calling your local dealer:
Trying to save your home’s heating and cooling system could save you a bundle of money. This is why we have created a couple checklists and guides to help you in your endeavors. If you have any questions or are unable to fix the problem yourself don’t hesitate to call your local dealer.

Air Conditioning and heat pump Equipment Checklist
1. Check to make sure that your thermostat is set in the "cool" position.
2. Ensure that your outdoor air conditioning (condensing unit) is running:
* Check the circuit breakers in the circuit breaker box (or electrical panel), most likely mounted to an outside wall in the back of the house. Are they in the "On" position?
* Check the outdoor unit "disconnect switch" to make sure it is in the "ON" position. The disconnect switch is located near the outdoor unit. (Typically a grey 8" wide x 16" high x 4" deep box mounted to the wall).
3. Ensure that the blower motor in your furnace is running. (If the thermostat is in the "cool" position, the furnace blower should be running.)
* If not, check to make sure the on / off switch at the furnace is in the "ON" position
4. Be sure that you have changed your filter in the furnace recently.
* An extremely blocked filter can cause your outdoor air conditioner unit to shut down due to lack of proper airflow.
* Your filter should be changed every month.
5. Check all return air grilles to make sure they are not blocked by furniture.
* Check all supply air registers to make sure they are open and blowing air. (The return air grilles are normally located on your walls and are wide and flat).

Gas Furnace Equipment Troubleshooting Guide
1. Check to make sure that your thermostat is set in the "heat" position
2. Make sure that the temperature setting on the thermostat is set above (or higher than) the indoor temperature showing on the thermostat.
* (This tells your heating system that it should provide heat!)
3. Ensure that there is power to the furnace:
* Try turning the fan to "ON" using the fan switch on the thermostat to test for power to furnace. 
4. Check the circuit breakers at the electrical panel to make sure they are in the "On" position.
5. Check the emergency switch (it looks like a light switch it may have a red cover , usually located in the hall near the return. ) to be sure it is in the "ON" position
6. Replace the furnace filter if needed.
* All 1-inch thick furnace filters should be replaced monthly.
7. If the system is running but you have not changed your filter, the filter may need to be replaced.
8. Check all return air grilles to make sure they are not blocked by furniture.
* Check all supply air registers to make sure they are open and blowing air. (The return air grilles are normally located on your walls and are wide and flat).
If these simple solutions do not solve your problem, contact your dealer for service.

Tips
Air Conditioning and Heating Filters
Filter! Filter! Filter!
To help performance of systems remember to change your filter once per month.

Keep any debris away from the outdoor condenser.

Performing regular maintenance on your system by a qualified HVAC contractor keeps your equipment at peak performance.

 One of the most important items to proper maintenance of your air conditioning and heating system is a clean filter.

Lack of preventative maintenance is the #1 causes of heating and cooling system failure. To avoid water damage and future repair cost be sure to have regular maintenance performed.  Improving the performance of your existing system can save on your energy cost.

We recommend maintenance twice per year – once before the cooling season and again maintenance before the heating season. Some homeowners prefer annual maintenance.
