As cool weather approaches, most homeowners start to get things ready for fall and winter. This may mean moving some plants indoors, cleaning gutters, or making sure your fall wardrobe is prepared. Fall is also time to get your home’s heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system ready for cooler temps. Here are seven tips for preparing your heating system.
Why Is the AC Fan Not Spinning?
Your air conditioner has two fans, one on the outside of the home and one inside. The indoor AC fan contributes to refreshingly cool home temps by blowing air over the chilled refrigerant coils. You can feel the effects as cold air blows out of your home’s ventilation ducts. The outside AC fan also plays a significant part, blowing air over warmed refrigerant to get rid of heat and cool the system back down. An AC fan not spinning means your home’s HVAC system won’t be able to do its job correctly.

Warranties are one of the main causes of customer frustration in the residential A/C industry. It is important to understand just because your air conditioning and heating system has a warranty, it does not mean that warranty will cover the cost to repair your system if it breaks down. HVAC warranties are called “limited warranties” because they do not cover everything that can go wrong with equipment at any time for any reason.
