No Air Flow

If your air conditioning unit does not start and you cannot feel air coming out of the vents, it means that the system is not running. The problem may be a thermostat, bad blower motor and perhaps the entire AC system has finally reached it’s end of life. Don’t wait until it’s too late to get your AC fixed, sometimes simple failures can lead to greater problems resulting in additional expenses to repair the unit. Waiting may also put the air quality in your home at risk to you and your family members. Not having a working AC on a warm night may be needed for a 24 hour emergency service request.
