Online review sites hardly ever show all the evaluations got, and post evaluations from sources that are not constantly credible. This offers a platform for business to publish their own reviews and people to quickly publish reviews without the company in question's ability to expertly fix the problem. Furthermore, no business would offer a negative referral; only those that are very favorable.

Other third-party websites offer consumers with a/c, heating and ventilation companies and add the expense of being a middle-man to the business formula.

Air Conditioning Help: Air Not Blowing Out Of Two Floor Vents....?
Two Rooms Of My House Are Significantly Warmer Than The Others.
The Air Is Blowing Cold Out Of All The Vents, Except For The Two Vents That Are Farthest Away From The Ac Unit. This Happened Last Year To The Same Vents, And A Few Weeks Later, They Were Working Again Without Any Sort Of Intervention.
My First Thought Is The That The Ductwork Connecting To The Vent Has Come Loose Or Is Crimped In Some Way, But After What Happened Last Year, It Seems Unlikely That It Was Loose And Repaired Itself.
Any Advice Would Be Greatly Appreciated.
Additional Details: Duct Work Is Less Than Two Years Old, Ac Unit Is Older Model. Freon Refilled About A Month Ago.
Sounds like a loose damper in duct since it has blown out those vents before. sometimes the hardware comes loose and the damper flops around (closing and opening). You will have to go in the crawl space and look for the main duct that feeds the two rooms and look for a handle sticking out the insulation on the duct. If found tighten the nuts on the damper and face the handle with the direction of the duct.
here is a picture of a damper, note that only the handle will be visible.
Why Does The Air Condition Build Up Ice And Reduces The Air Flow?
No air conditioner by design is meant to build ice on the evap coil, you either have a problem with the air flow or the refrigeration circuit. The air flow could be restricted due to plugged filters, dirty evap coil or something with the evap fan, like the motor, belts or the squirrel cage fan. The refrigeration circuit could have a leak, causing you to run at a lower suction pressure, which would cause a lower evap temp or you may have a problem with the cap tube or thermostatic expansion valve. These are the most common problems, by turning your thermostat up to a higher setting isnt going to solve the problem.
