Hi. My thermostat's has a blinking snowflake, what does it mean?

Contractor's Assistant: Just to clarify, do you think this is a larger HVAC problem, or something specific to the thermostat?

No.

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

Only if it might be a matter of pushing a button or changing a battery.

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

I don't know. I have the CA on. It reads 81 degrees and I have it set at 72.

I have not heard back from the HVAC. Please have an HVAC technician to help me answer my questions. I have central air. My outside fan system, from the CA does spin, I hear air blowing from inside the house, but it is not cooling the house down. I notice on my thermostat the snowflake blinks sometimes. I have the thermostat set at 72 degrees, but the temperature reads 80. The house is not cooling down. I've left the CA on for about 5 hours before I turned it off. Prior to me turning it on, I changed the filter in the vent. This is maybe the first time it has been turned on this season. Currently, I have the CA off; and it has been a day. How do I get my CA to work properly? I paid for this service, but I am not getting answers to my questions. Please help.
