Glendora owners have a lot on their plate, leading many to put off HVAC maintenance in favor of other work. However, skipping annual maintenance increases the risk of serious problems while shortening the life of a system. Here, we’ll discuss the most common HVAC problems and offer simple, common-sense solutions.
A blocked condenser unit
Airflow problems usually occur due to blockages in the condenser unit. This device, located outside the house, uses a fan to circulate air through the rest of the system and the house, and its location makes it vulnerable. The surest way to keep a condenser and the rest of the system in good working order is to schedule regular maintenance with Accurate Electric Plumbing Heating & Air. Call or click today!
A clogged and dirty air filter
The air filter is an essential part of an efficient HVAC system. It improves indoor air quality by keeping contaminants out of ductwork and the home itself. These filters should be replaced every 30-90 days, with the schedule depending on weather and other factors. Protect the home’s HVAC system and the air inside the home by changing filters regularly.
When a home air conditioner isn’t cooling, the first step is to check for leaks. Refrigerant does its job well, but it can escape through tiny cracks or punctures in lines and containers. If there is a leak, the performance of the system will gradually decrease until it stops working altogether.
Refrigerant isn’t the only liquid that can leak from an HVAC system; water also condenses during cooling and heating processes. As a rule, the water drains, but the condensate drain lines often clog or crack. If the system is leaking and cold air flow is reduced, contact us immediately for air conditioning service.
A faulty thermostat
The unit itself is an essential part of an HVAC system, but it doesn’t work on its own. If it’s not working properly, the thermostat may be to blame. The average thermostat lasts about a decade, so it’s likely to wear out before the system. Change the setting, check the battery, and call us if these two steps don’t produce the desired result.
Besides smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, HVAC systems are some of the noisiest appliances in Glendora homes. There’s a good thing about it, though; it means that when there is a problem, we will know about it. If the system is making strange squealing, creaking, squeaking or rattling noises, call us to schedule an air conditioning inspection and repair.
A broken blower fan
The blower fan moves air through the ducts and the rest of the system, and it is always energized. Although regular air filter changes reduce the strain on the fan, things can still get dusty over time. Because the blower fan is difficult to access on most systems, it’s a job best left to the experts.
