Common issues homeowners experience
My HVAC unit will not turn on
If you notice your unit failing to turn on, you may be able to solve the problem with a quick check of the thermostat. Often, it really is as simple as this. Be sure to start here and look into any of the other most basic fixes, like checking your circuit breaker. Maybe your unit is running but your house does not seem to be getting any cooler. In this case, you may want to check if your vents are blocked or obstructed in any way.
My HVAC unit is not reaching the set temperature
Are your rooms not reaching the desired temperature? This can be caused by a wide variety of problems, including failure of the control module or sensor problems. If your AC controls are old and worn out, it is likely that they need to be replaced.
My HVAC unit is blowing warm air
If your HVAC unit is blowing warm air, most likely you need to change your filter (read our blog post about how often you should change your air filter). An easy enough task, which will require little more than a quick trip to the hardware store. However, if your filter is clean, it is more likely that there is an obstruction in your ductwork, or your HVAC coolant needs to be replenished. In either of these cases, you will need to contact a qualified HVAC technician to assist you.
My HVAC unit is frozen
On the other end of the spectrum, you might find your AC unit frozen. As always, be sure to check your filter for any blockage. Obstructions in any part of your HVAC system may be the culprit, and so seeking these out immediately is the way to go. Homeowners can take it upon themselves to clear away most debris they may find.
If you perform regular maintenance on your HVAC unit, you will be able to avoid many of the more significant problems that affect all homeowners, giving your unit a longer lifespan and saving you money in the long run. But most importantly, you need to identify when it is time to call for outside help, as some problems can cause personal hazards, or require costly repairs if handled on one’s own. When in doubt, give us a call, and save yourself some major problems. Click here to contact us through the website or call us at (386) 252-1247.
