Check for open doors or windows in your home

If your doors or windows are open, close them! Cool air may be escaping through them.

Check the thermostat

Look to see if your thermostat is on, and at what temperature it’s set.

Did you find that the thermostat is off or set incorrectly? Turn on and/or reset thermostat.

Check your circuit breaker or fuse box

Is there a burned out fuse or flipped circuit? If so, switch the circuit to the “on” position or replace fuse.

Air blows, but no cooling

Hold your hand in front of your indoor vents. Do you feel air, but air that hasn’t been cooled?

Most likely, your indoor unit is running, but the outdoor unit is not.

Temporary solution:
Turn off your thermostat and leave it off for 1-3 hours.

Permanent solution:

Was any work done on your fuel lines recently?

Is your thermostat set correctly?

Review your recent appliance purchases

Consider whether you have new appliances (e.g. a hot tub or pool heater) that might be using lots of power.

It may not be your heating and cooling system that’s raising your bills.

It could be utility rates…

Check to see if your local utility company had a recent rate increase.

It may not be your heating and cooling system that’s raising your bills.

Is your system cycling properly?

Check to see that your system is cycling constantly.

If your system IS cycling constantly, and IS reaching its set point, this usually means that your system’s working fine, but your local temperatures are constantly in the extreme, so your system’s working extra hard to meet that set point.

Look over your thermostat behavior

Check to see that your thermostat is reaching its set value. If your system IS cycling constantly, but ISN’T reaching its set point. It this seems to be the case, call Denson Heating and Air at 706-253-3554.

My equipment runs all the time

Check the set point on your thermostat.

If your thermostat is set unusually low (summer) or unusually high (winter), your system may be trying to reach a set point that is too extreme. Reset your thermostat or contact Denson Heating and Air at 706-253-3554.
