Sometimes the problem with an air conditioning unit (whether it be an Emerson air conditioner, a Fedders air conditioner, or any other model) isn't with worn out parts or blown capacitors, but with the duct system. Your ducts carry the cold air to all parts of the house in a central air conditioning setup. If those ducts are not clean, air has a difficult time moving through those ducts.
You may think that your higher energy bills or not-so-cooled-off home is the result of an air conditioner mechanical problem but dirty ducts can be just as serious as mechanical repairs. If you haven't had a look at your ducts in a few years, do an inspection today.
