I have no knowledge of anything HVAC related, and after 2+ hours of searching the internet I am ready to pull my hair out. I have my thermostat set to cool, but my house is not cooling. I have no air pumping through my ducts.
I tried changing the thermostat batteries. No change.
I looked at my central air unit (it has a Standard logo on it). It seems to be operating correctly.
I went to the basement to look at that furnace. I found a red blinking light and condensation on an insulated pipe. The red light blinked 9 times, paused, blinked 1 green, then repeated the cycle. 9 red, pause, 1 green, 9 red, pause, 1 green, etc. I looked at the "cheat sheet" located inside the panel, but there is only a description for up to 7 red blinks.
So, after my very limited "inspection" of my situation, I concluded it must be a problem with the furnace. I was wondering if anyone here had any idea what the problem might be. I'm only asking because I got screwed by a now out-of-business HVAC guy a couple years ago and want to know what I am facing before I get a pro in here.
Thank you for your time!
