Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

I have a honeywell Design Air reverse cycle aircondton system. Two weeks back it stopped working. When I switch it on it starts the system. The air is flowing but it is not cooling. what could be wrong and how long normally it takes for a repairer to fix the problem. Just need approximate cost before I call them in for service.


Answers :

Hi, Just to to let you know, I am a contractor for heating and air conditioning. You have a split system heat pump it sounds like to me. If you have the indoor unit and an outdoor unit, this is a split. If the blower is running but not getting cold air, there could be several problems that would cause this. The service tech should be able to troubleshoot and find the problem in 1 hour or less. Depending on who you call, you are looking at anywhere from $65.00 to $85.00 per hour. Some places also charge you a travel or truck charge of $20.00, try and stay away from them. It will be a 1 hour minimum and in 1/4 hours there after. It could be a quick fix, breaker, fuse, or a serious problem as a compressor. This is what you are looking at. If you do have a split system and the outdoor unit is not on, check the breakers and fuses before you call any one. This may save you many $$$$$!! If you have a system that is all in one or a package unit and the blower comes on, make sure the outdoor fan is running ( condenser fan motor ) and listen to see if you can hear the compressor running. If you do have a split unit, go to the outdoor unit and see if the fan is running and compressor also. If not, check you're power supply. You may get lucky.

Air conditioner runs for a few hours and it works - it cools the house. Then it stops cooling - the fan still runs but it doesn't blow out cool air any more.

I was told it could be the fan motor and the a/c guy changed the fan motor today but that didn't fix the problem. Now he says it might be the compressor or that I need a new system. I'm jus

My 3-year old LG air-conditioner was leaking water. So i called some 'experts' to come fix it. This is the first time I called for maintenance service on the air conditioner. The 'experts' dismantled some parts of the air-conditioner and washed out a lot of dirt and sticky stuff. After they put the air-conditioner back, there was no more water leaking but I noticed 2 new problems. When I switch on the air conditioner, the mouth does not immediately swing open, it takes about 3 minutes before it
