September 11th, 2023

Air conditioners run in a specific way we call a “cooling cycle.” This kind of method makes sense for total comfort throughout your home, but it’s a very specific way a system operates.

Our team can diagnose and fix your HVAC in Greenfield, Indiana, but we think it’s worth it for our customers to know some basic information on how these cycles work and why AC units are designed this way.

Today, we’d like to talk about some AC problems. More specifically, we want to talk about when your AC has no cool air coming from it. This is a big problem and it can point to a number of different issues that will require AC repair in Palestine.
