Cooling:
Problem: Refrigerated Air unit is not cooling.
Clean and/or replace the filters. Check the circuit breaker to ensure that the unit has power. Make sure all windows are closed inside the home.  Check to see if the unit has frozen and appears to have ice inside the unit. If the unit has frozen turn the unit completely off for 24 hours to defrost and ensure all prior steps have been done before turning back on.  (If you are placing the temperature on your unit below 72 degrees it can cause the unit to freeze frequently during months where the temperature is extremely hot.)

Problem: Swamp Cooler not cooling.
Make sure that windows in the home are cracked open to ensure circulation of the air. Make
Sure pump and fans switched are both turned on. If it is a humid day swamp coolers tend to not work as well check to see if the unit is blowing any air at all at first prior to submitting a claim. If the unit is not blowing air please detail this in your claim. If the unit is blowing air but it is only hot air please detail this in your claim. Please note, for swamp coolers, the temperature will only get to be about 10-15 degrees lower than the outside air, so on very hot days the temperature inside the home may remain higher than the thermostat even though the unit is working properly. Swamp coolers also do not work efficiently on humid days, so if it's humid outside, the swamp cooler may appear to not be working even though the unit is functioning properly.
