Customer Question
Our air conditioner unit...

Our air conditioner unit will not start. We have checked the breaker and changed the batteries in the thermostat.

Contractor's Assistant: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?

Yes - I checked the settings and schedule and changed the filters about a week ago

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I've already done everything I know to do

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

A second air conditioner unit for the bedrooms is working as normal
