Usually when a thermostat’s display screen goes blank, it needs its batteries replaced. Most thermostats require one or two AA batteries.
Check your fuse box or breaker box to be sure that your unit is getting power. Also, check for a power switch by the furnace and make sure it is on. If this does not solve your problem you will need to contact a qualified heating and cooling company.
One-inch filters should be replaced monthly. More frequently in homes with lots of furry pets or if you have done any remodeling.
Most one-inch filters can be purchased at very reasonable prices at your local hardware store. Lambie Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc also stocks a wide variety of one-inch filters and specialty filters. Call us at (309) 6828005 for any of your filter needs.
These pipes are known as refrigerant (or Freon) lines. They can “freeze up” for a number of reasons. Frequently, icing occurs because of dirty filter preventing proper air flow through you HVAC system. If your filter is dirty, replace it and allow the equipment to thaw before starting it back up. If this does not solve your problem, you will need to contact an authorized cooling contractor.
This problem can occur as a result of a dirty filter. Simply replace your dirty filter and within a few minutes you should have cool air coming from your registers. However, under these conditions your air conditioner might also “freeze up.” You will need to allow all ice to thaw before starting up your unit again.
Until 2010, the most commonly used form of refrigerant (aka Freon) in air conditioners was R-22. However, in 2010, all heating and cooling manufacturers were banned from producing new air conditioners or heat pumps that used R-22 on the basis that R-22 was harmful to our environment. As a result of phasing-out R-22, the price of R-22 has dramatically increased. Newer units now use a more environmentally friendly form of refrigerant known as 410a.
The solution to this problem usually has to do with airflow. Before we leave any install, we take the time to balance the airflow throughout the house by adjusting airflow in the duct system and if necessary (and possible), increasing the fan speed on the blower in the furnace.
When one of our trained estimators arrive at your home to give you your free in-home estimate, they will measure the perimeter of your home. They will also take notice of the type and value of insulation you have in your walls, ceiling, and floors; location of windows and glass type; and size and type of house. With this information they will calculate the appropriate size of equipment for your home per ACCA’s Manual J.
No. It is essential that your new HVAC system be the right size for your home, not too small and not too large. Oversized equipment unnecessarily increases your energy usage and therefore your energy bill. Oversized cooling equipment will not properly remove humidity from your home making you feel cold and clammy. Oversized equipment also leads to more maintenance issues and shorter life span for your new equipment.

On average a furnace or air conditioner can be installed in one day. A new furnace and air conditioner usually takes 1-1 ½ days to install.
Most of Carrier Furnaces, Air Conditioners, Heat Pumps, Coil, Fan Coils, and Infinity Controls come with a 10 Years Parts and 1 Year Labor Warranty when registered.

When safe to do so, turn off the power to your furnace. Because your air conditioner relies on the blower motor in your furnace you will not be able to run your air conditioner either. Take pictures for your records. You may need these at a later time if you file any insurance claims. After the water has receded, remove the front panel(s) from your furnace. Do not put your hands or anything else into your furnace. Keep animals and children away from the furnace. Place fan one to two feet in front of the furnace and run it on low to medium speed. Please be safe with the electrical cords. Once the furnace is completely dry, Call, Text, or Email Lambie Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc for an inspection and cleaning.
The answer to this depends on a number of factors including age of the furnace, type of furnace, how high the water got in the furnace, how long the water sat in the furnace, and ultimately LUCK. Just as sometimes you can save a cell phone after dropping it into water, sometimes you can save your furnace after its been in water. Your furnace whether electric or gas has lots of electrical components.
HVAC technicians will attempt to start your furnace once dried out. The technician will inspect and clean each of the furnace components. They will also replace any one-inch filters for no additional fee. If necessary the technician will give you the price to replace or repair any of your furnace components. If the furnace cannot be saved, the technician will give you pricing for a new furnace.
No. However, depending on your homeowner’s insurance your equipment inspection, repairs, or replacement may be covered by your insurance. We work with most insurance companies.
Sometimes the furnace can be placed on a stand elevating it off the ground. This would really depend on the height of the basement, height of the furnace and its associated coil and plenum, and configuration. Sometimes it is possible to move a furnace from a crawl space to the attic.
