An HVAC system can help keep your home comfortable. However, without the proper maintenance, the system must work extremely hard to heat and cool your home. This leads to higher energy bills, decreased comfort and excessive wear and tear to your system. Unless caught and resolved early, HVAC problems can cause damage to your system and pose a safety hazard for your family.
Dirty HVAC Filters
Dirty air filters are the most common cause of HVAC system problems. Dirty filters cause your system to work harder to keep your home confortable. This can lead to increased energy bills and damage to the system. Filters should be changed at least once a month.
The liquid refrigerant in your HVAC system is responsible for creating the cool air that flows into your home. When the refrigerant level is low, your air conditioner will blow warm air making your home hot and uncomfortable. Our experienced HVAC technicians can help you determine if your refrigerant level is low.
Frequent use can cause the terminals and wires within your system to corrode. This should be suspected if your system’s fan and condenser begin to fail. A qualified technician can help you locate and resolve this issue.
A broken condensation pump can cause water to pool instead of drain. This causes your HVAC system to work harder to cool your home, increasing your energy bills. Drainage issues can also lead to water damage to your home. Contact an HVAC technician as soon as possible if you feel that your system isn’t draining as it should.
Malfunctioning Thermostat Sensor
The thermostat sensor measures the air temperature inside your home and signals your system to turn on and off as needed. If your sensor isn’t working properly, your system may not turn on when it should. It might also turn on and off frequently, increasing wear to your system. An experienced HVAC technician can check to see if your thermostat sensor is causing the problem.
