Frequently Asked Questions

Why is my air conditioner freezing up?

Your air conditioner can freeze up due to low refrigerant and improper fan operation.

How long does an air conditioner last?

Air conditioners usually last 10-15 years with regular maintenance check-ups.

What is the most efficient thermostat setting for air conditioning?

To stay comfortable and save money, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends setting your thermostat to 74-78 F.

Why is my air conditioner short-cycling?

Main reasons your air conditioner could be short-cycling:

  • A clogged air filter
  • An oversized or undersized air conditioner
  • Low refrigerant charge due to leaks
  • Air escaping through a leaky ventilation system
  • Miscalibrated thermostats reading incorrect temperatures

Why does my air conditioner smell?

Main reasons why your air conditioner smells:

  • Must, mildew, or mold
  • Cigarette smoke
  • Overheated motor
  • Sewage
  • Leaking gas

Should I set my air conditioning fan to auto or on?

Keeping your fan on “auto” is the most energy-efficient option. The fan only runs when the system is on and not continuously, so it can save you money on your energy bill.

When should I replace my system instead of repairing it?

If your HVAC system is at least 10-15 years old and has shown signs of breaking down, it’s generally a good time to replace it so you can avoid costly repairs.
