    blowing cool air but no power

    I have a rheem unit 3ton with heatpump.
    My unit sounds like it is running normally and air feels cold coming out of the vents. The only problem is, it is not blowing very hard.
    When it usually sucks air out of the house it is loud and it blows cold air out of the vents pretty hard, but like I said not much flow. I change the filter every 6 to 8 weeks. Probably need to call in the Pro's. What could be the problem here or is there not enough info to troubleshoot.

    Sorry not allowed to give advise that could be used for DIY, site rules.

    Plus, there are several possibilities. A service contractor would be your best bet for a acturate diagnostic and repair.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    Your welcome.
    For the most part all like to have an idea of what may be wrong before we talk to a service guy for what ever needs repaired.

    But, when you do service. Once you hear what the symtoms are, you generally have your own test procedures you do. (atleast anyone doing service for any length of time does)
    And checking things out of order only slows you down, and sometimes cost the customer more money.
    Your problem could be an economical repair, or a slighly set you back in your chair repair.

    Don't take the chance with your wifes health, it may cost more to get someone out oh a Sunday, but it may be worth it to her.
