My house is nice and cool, but the air continues to run even

Customer Question

My house is nice and cool, but the air continues to run even though it's evening and the temp outside is only 79. It acts as though it's confused.
JA: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?
Customer: I changed the filter maybe 6 weeks ago. How do I check the settings?
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: What work? I just had an a/c guy out about six weeks ago to clean out the condensation tube outside and he said everything looked fine.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: The a/c was fine till I had my shutters put up before the hurricane. Then it started acting wieird. I wondered if maybe someone bumped into it and messed up something.

If you turn thermostat to OFF on both SYSTEM and FAN to AUTO will unit go off?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Before I answer...I could not read the terms of service agreement, so I am hesitant to continue. I don't want my card to be charged with a huge bill.

AS long as you do not sign up for any membership, this will be a one time charge

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I don't want a phone call. Even if this takes a while, I would rather just have the $5 charge than to incur further expense.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Never mind. I will take care of the problem myself.
