Identifying Common HVAC Problems
One of the most important items in your home is your HVAC unit. It may not be the first thing on your mind, but when it’s the dead of summer and you are warm or it’s the dead of winter and you are freezing, your HVAC unit is there to keep you comfortable. Keeping it working properly is very important and being able to identify common HVAC problems can help save you from needing to purchase a whole new system. So what are some common HVAC problems you may encounter?
Believe it or not, there are a lot of pollutants like dirt, dust, and debris floating around your home and it is important that your HVAC filters don’t get too clogged up with these pollutants. Leaving filters unchecked in your HVAC unit will guarantee that you have a large air conditioning repair bill in the future. A clogged filter will restrict airflow and can cause your unit to not work properly. Frequently check and change out your filters to avoid any problems.
There are fuses found in the evaporator of your HVAC unit to protect the motor or compressor from overheating. If the fuses are blown, your HVAC unit can suddenly stop working. A good HVAC contractor will always check the fuses when conducting any type of HVAC repair to make sure they are still working properly and are not in jeopardy of blowing.
Issues with the Sensor
Your HVAC unit runs heated or cooled air throughout your home based on the temperature you set in conjunction with what temperature the thermostat is reading. It is important to place the thermostat in the largest room of your home to get the best results. If you have the thermostat in a small room or a room that has a closed door, that room will reach the temperature you want and then the unit will turn off while the rest of your home is not at the desired temperature.
