Customer Question

RAKA-037JAZ Air coming out of the vents is cold but not a lot of volume coming out. Can tell by the sound of it that it is not pulling like it should.
JA: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?
Customer: Filter is clean on the return. Thermostat is working.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: That is my first choice.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: This came on the heels of an issue with my Wifi thermostat. In an attempt to reconnect wifi I changed one of the parameters on the thermostat from a 0 to a 1 and in doing so caused my boiler's circulator pump to start running continuously. We woke last night to an 88 degree house. I shut a valve off to the hot water loop for that side for that side of the house last night. It wasn't until this morning I realized how I changed that parameter. Well the circulator is now off after changing that parameter back but now the issue with the seemingly reduced volume of air coming from the AC.

f not a lot of volume is coming out your should check and see if the evaporator coil is clean and not icing. If that is dirty or icing up that would be the issue on the unit. You may have to cut an access panel in the duct work to get at it, but that would be the most likely issue for the low volume of air.
