If you have the fan setting on your thermostat set to “on” or “run”, causing it to run all the time, it may just be that the compressor has cycled off and there is nothing wrong. You can try adjusting the thermostat down and see if the air conditioner kicks on.
The other option is that something is not broken and it needs to be diagnosed to figure out what is causing the problem. It could be a lot of different things; frozen coils, refrigerant, bad compressor, a capacitor that has gone out, etc.
In the owner’s manual for your air conditioner it says, “…in addition to the maintenance you preform, your system should be inspected regularly by a properly trained technician…” In the industry, “regularly” means once a year. Most HVAC companies offer this annual dealer maintenance. Call Big Cat today to find out more about our HVAC service programs!
Each home is a little different. You only need to change the filter when it’s too dirty to let air through. Pets, dirt, and dust can cause you to need to replace your filter more often. If you are unsure how often to replace your filter, take it out and hold it up to the light. If you are not seeing light through it, you are not getting enough air through it.
At a minimum replace your filter at the beginning of a new season, during the spring and fall. When you replace it, if it is very dirty, try replacing it every 3 months.
The purpose of the filter is to keep dirt and debris from damaging the internal components of your cooling system while still allowing enough air to move through the system. A dirty filter causes more strain on the electrical components causing them to fail sooner and your energy bill to be higher than it needs to be.
This points to an ignition system malfunction which is an issue that should be seen to by an HVAC specialist.
To figure out just what the blinking red light on your furnace is trying to tell you, you can consult a chart that’s located somewhere on your furnace. The number of blinks should correspond to a similar number on the chart and that can help you begin to understand and solve the problem. If the manufacturer’s suggested fix does not work, consult an HVAC specialist.
Pipe lining can be used in systems such as drains, sewer, and storm water and roof drains, pipe lining works on all major types of drainage piping materials, both inside and outside the building or home. NuDrain can be installed in pipelines with diameters less than 2 inches to over 12 inches in diameter. Some piping with major offsets or grade issues may require further repairs than just lining. A camera inspection is required to determine whether or not your drainage piping is eligible for pipe lining.
Even if you have no reason to suspect a problem in your pipes, any property owner can benefit from a video inspection. That’s because sewer video cameras allow us to catch small issues before they have a chance to develop into larger ones. Even a small clog can put the health of your entire sewer system at risk. Whether it is for a property you already own, or one you are hoping to buy, be proactive and call Big Cat Plumbing for a thorough inspection of your sewer pipes.
Roots will NO longer penetrate through the damaged or failing sewer pipes. As the new CIPP liner forms a jointless and seamless brand new pipe within the old pipe.
Yes. We can fix a wide range of pipe problems with our trenchless pipe lining solutions. We have used the CIPP lining process on a variety of piping materials, including clay, concrete, metal, PVC and fiberglass. Other services that we repair are not only sewer mains but also vertical stacks, vent systems, storm drains, municipal sewer lines, and sanitary systems.
Nu Flow’s structural CIPP lining technology is highly versatile and is best suited for pipes that are 3/4” to as much as 12” in diameter. However, we also offer specialty applications for larger pipe systems.
Every circumstance can differ, a trenchless sewer repair typically costs a fraction of what a traditional pipe excavation would. The main reason for this is, that there is less equipment and manpower to complete a trenchless project, but also because the technology allows us to eliminate the digging. The property damage expenses that make dig-and-replace sewer pipe rehabilitation so cost-prohibitive. By providing minimally invasive plumbing options, we have saved our customers thousands of dollars over the years.
If you are noticing a gurgling in your drains, a sewage odor in or around your home, mold or mildew damage, backups in one or more of your fixtures or a flooded basement. These are all signs you have a problem that we can address with our relining method. After inspecting your pipes with our video camera, we will determine the source of the damage and the quickest way to fix it. Relining is also an excellent preventive measure, particularly for older buildings where pipes may be naturally reaching the end of their lifespan.
