Troubleshooting your HVAC

Troubleshooting your HVAC 



Often times, when an air conditioning system is not operating properly, or worse stops running altogether, there are things you can do before calling your HVAC service provider. Here are the most common problems and what you can potentially do to remedy the problem yourself.

  • The unit is not sufficiently hearing or cooling
*The possible cause could be dirty air filters. This is an easy fix – simply clean or replace the existing filters.
*If the air is not circulating freely, check the supply registers to make sure there is no obstruction.
*The outdoor coil could be blocked. Again, check for debris or foliage that could be hampering air flow.
  • The unit is just not operating
*Is the power to the unit off? Make sure the main switch is on.
*Is the circuit breaker tripped or is there a burned-out fuse? Reset the circuit breaker or replace the fuses.
  • The auxiliary heat display is on
*If the outdoor temperature has significantly fallen, this is normal. Just monitor the light and if it stays on continuously when above 30ºF or if it comes on when it’s 50ºF outdoors, it’s best to call for service.
  • The blower does not operate
*Check to make sure the blower door has not been removed or is open. Simply close the door to restore power to the blower.
  • Unusual noise
*In this case, don’t try to figure it out on your own. Call your HVAC provider. 

Air conditioning is nothing to be taken lightly!

Whether you’ve just acquired a new air conditioning unit or if you’ve had the same one for a while, proper maintenance is the key to longevity and comfort. Here’s four points to know:
  1. Filter replacement or cleaning – This is so easy to overlook, but by replacing or cleaning your filter, you can ensure that your unit is running efficiently. When your unit is running more, tend to the filters twice a month. During slower times, once a month is adequate. Mark on your calendar to remember this task.
  2. Outdoor coils - This is one of the biggest items to keep your unit running at peak performance is to make sure the air is freely flowing over the outdoor unit’s coil. Make sure the unit is free from debris, foliage, or anything that might restrict air flow. 
  3. Clean air ducts – In addition to allowing air to flow more freely throughout your home, the benefits of clean air ducts include: 
  • Less dust and bacteria in the air
  • Lower energy bills
  • Better indoor air quality
  • Less pet dander
  • Fresher smell throughout your home

     4. Routine maintenance – At least once a year, your unit should be serviced by a trained HVAC technician. In some           instances, doing the work yourself could void your warranty. Contact your HVAC provider for specials on regular maintenance. There are also opportunities for extended warranties by going through your HVAC service provider.
