Five Most Common HVAC Problems
While some HVAC problems are simply a matter of cleaning filters, many issues with the heating and cooling system will develop into huge concerns if not serviced early. It is wise to check your HVAC system from time to time to prevent a blackout.
Here is a list of the top five common HVAC problems:
1. Lack of maintenance
Regularly scheduled maintenance by a licensed service contractor is one of the most important things to keep your system working perfectly. Most common repairs can be avoided by regular maintenance.
2. Problems with the mechanical component
There are several mechanical components on which the HVAC system depends. If they work unproperly, it might result in poor heating or airflow problems. Regular maintenance should include stretched belts, bearings, and motors if necessary.
3. Unusual noises
Some noises are regular, while others may be an indicator of some problems. Some might be a sign of motor failure or caused by airflow issues or dirty burners.
4. Air Conditioner is blowing hot air
Before you do anything, check if your thermostat settings are unchanged or if everything is fine with the air filter. If this is not the issue, you might be short on refrigerant. You should call an HVAC specialist to refill or repair the refrigerant reservoir.
5. A leaking unit
Excessive leaking indicates a variety of issues. Usually is because of the clog. You can do some unclogging, which is simple, but if you do have any doubts, reach out to HVAC professionals to be sure that it isn’t something more serious.
