Common Problems With HVAC Systems

Common Problems With HVAC Systems

Many homeowners are not familiar with how their HVAC system works outside of using the thermostat and for the majority of the time this more than enough information. However, when your HVAC starts to experience issues often homeowners pass off signs of damage as normal. Knowing the difference between common problems with HVAC system and more serious ones will save you both time and money.

What To Look For

For many, an HVAC system is out of sight and out of mind. This is especially true in off-seasons, as we don’t use our air conditioners in the winter. However, proper maintenance is a year round job and issues with your HVAC system can happen at any time.

Learning what to look for is essential in both making small at-home adjustment and knowing when to call a professional service to repair a problem before it gets to the point it needs to be replaced. Homeowners often forego repairing a unit as a means to save money, only later to pay twice the repair cost when installing a new system due to unit malfunctions.

Homeowners should be looking for these main warning signs that your unit may need a maintenance or repair call:

  • HVAC unit not turning on/off
  • Loud, unusual noises when turning off
  • Cycling, and shutting off frequently
  • Leaks from indoor/outdoor unit
  • Flooding
  • Thermostat displaying warnings

Many of these issues, including flooding, may seem extreme; however, it often does not require any major changes with only slight repairs to resolve the issues. It is important that you call a professional early on, as no problem gets better on its own.

When To Get A Repair

If you have determined that your HVAC unit is experiencing some of these common system problems it is time to get your free maintenance check. Our heating and cooling experts always work with homeowners, keeping you looped in as we conduct our maintenance survey to ensure that we only suggest repair for issues that truly need repairing to save your unit and save you money.

Additionally, once we have repaired common problems we help homeowners better understand how to properly care for their systems to ensure that issues don’t arise as frequently. When you clean your vents, remove debris or furniture away from units and are more aware of how your thermostat works for sustainability purpose, you are increasing the lifespan of your unit.
