TROUBLESHOOTING

Before you call for service, you can try some of these basic troubleshooting steps on your furnace, air conditioner, refrigeration unit or commercial ice machine. If these steps don't resolve your problem, contact ACR Mechanical for free phone advice, or to schedule a service call.

Do I really need a service call for my heating?
  1. Is the thermostat set above room temperature and set to heat?

  2. Is the switch on the side of the unit/furnace is turned on?

  3. Are the furnace filters plugged and restricting air flow?

  4. Is the gas valve turned on?

  5. Is the breaker turned on?

Do I really need a service call for my air conditioning?
  1. Is the thermostat set above room temperature and set to cool?

  2. Is the switch on the side of the unit/furnace turned on?

  3. Are the furnace filters plugged and restricting air flow?

Things to ask about when replacing your furnace or air conditioning systems:

 

  • Will there be a ACCA Manual J heat loss and load calculation?

  • Will the duct system be evaluated for today’s higher efficiency’s systems?

  • Will the duct system’s plenums and cold air drops be replaced?

  • Will the line set and electrical disconnect be replaced?

  • Will there be a new thermostat or humidifier installed?

  • Will the furnace combustion air intake be piped to the outside?

  • Will the contractor install the brand that best suits your needs?

 
Any of the above could change your estimated price.

Make sure you know what you are getting!

Do I really need a service call for my refrigeration unit?
  1. Are all breakers and switches turned on?
    Reach-ins, display cases, prep tables and other self-contained units* usually have only one breaker and may or may not have an on/off switch. Walk-ins may have more than one breaker plus an on/off switch.
    Breakers: Walk-in freezers may have two breakers; one labeled fan and lights, the other condensing or compressor. Walk-in refrigerators normally have only one breaker for both the fans and the condensing unit.
    On/Off Switches: For both types of units, these are normally located in one of two places, a.) inside the walk-in and mounted to or on the wall near the evaporator coil**, or, b.) on or near the condensing unit.*** 
    Unfortunately, it's quite common to find these turned off after a delivery.

  2. Is the thermostat set to the proper temperature?

  3. Is anything restricting air flow to the condenser or evaporator coils?

    *self-contained units are preassembled units you just plug in, like your home refrigerator.
    **the evaporator coil is the cooling unit inside the walk-in that houses the fan motors.
    ***the condensing unit can be on top of the walk-in cooler or in a remote location like roof top, mechanical room, basement, etc.

 

Do I really need a service call for my ice machine?
  1. Is the breaker turned on?

  2. Is the on/off switch in the on position?

  3. Is the water turned on?

  4. If the unit has water filters, are they plugged?

  5. Is anything restricting the air flow to the condenser coil?
