tran Xe 1000 units not performing well.


I have two tran 1000 units one for upstairs and down. A few days ago I noticed my downstairs unit has been running continuously and not being able to get the inside temp below 84 degrees. When I check the vents the air coming out is cold, but it is still warm downstairs. Upstairs unit was doing well until today and I checked the temp and it was 84. I know absolutely nothing about air conditioners, but was wondering if anybody knew where to begin to trouble shoot.

Always start with the air filter.

Was it changed recently. Even if your sure you just changed it last week. Recheck it, and change it if needed.

Next. If it was just changed recently. Is it a different type then you used last year?

That was the first thing I checked... and it was in bad shape. Last week when we were on vacation someone took out our carpet and put in bamboo floors in the lower level of our house, and I guess that created a lot of dust. I changed it yesterday, and it still is having trouble... I would love it if it is a problem that easy to solve... Is there another filter your suppose to change in the actual unit, I have never done that, I just change the one on our air return in the house...

Shouldn't be another one at the air handler.

And the A/C shouldn't have been ran while they were sawing in your house.

Good chance your coil has almost as much saw dust in it now. And needs a good leaning.

Thanks a lot, that sounds like a great place to start... thought it was interesting we began having trouble right after the floors were installed, but it has been extremely hot in Georgia the past 2 weeks, so wasn't sure if it was just having a hard time keeping up.
