Have gone through and looked at previous posts and just don't see one that quite describes my problem.
I will try to be brief.......Have been with same HVAC folks under full service contract since 1998, all their techs are NATE certified. When we moved in 01/07, we brought them along to take care of things at our 'new' house which was built in 2001.
I live in Atlanta...hot and humid summers. We have 2 units, one up and one down. Have had no real problems keeps temps at 76-78 during the summer months. When we had our summer '07 inspection I was told that the freon was a bit low on the upstairs unit so they put some in. Same situation at the beginning of this summer's inspection, a bit more freon.
Quit cooling 48 hrs ago. Checked things out and found out that unit outside was not on. Checked circuit breaker and it had flipped off. Reset breaker, unit came on and all was well and cooling. Approx 3 hrs later, outside unit quit working again and circuit breaker (the one inside the house NOT the breaker by the unit) had flipped off again. I tried one more time, outside unit ran for about 1.5 hrs before shutting down again. At this point I just turned the air off at the thermostat.
My HVAC guy is coming out this afternoon and I would like some feedback on what things he should be checking for and maybe some things I need to be asking.
Appreciate your help!
