There are a number of factors that can negatively influence your H.V.A.C. unit. Below are a list of the most common problems encountered and why they need to be taken care of immediately.
Clean Dirty Air Filters
Replacing grimy air filters is just one of the simplest ways to economize & enhance the effectiveness of your H.V.A.C. unit. Dirt in the air filters can easily cause your unit to take longer to cool or heat your home. Stopped-up air filters can significantly decrease the efficiency of the air conditioner & cause it to work twice as a hard to produce the same level of heating or cooling, leading to an acceleration in wear.
Blower Belt Tension
A belt that is either too loose or too tight will negatively influence performance. Any accumulation of dirt more than 1/16-inch thick ought to cleaned by a professional repairman.
Blown Fuses & Tripped Circuit Breakers
An air conditioner refusing to kick on despite a working thermostat means you probably have an issue with a blown fuse.
Is There A Duct Obstruction?
Often, the H.V.A.C. will be running fine, but the air flow is considerably less that usual, which can be felt by placing your hand over a vent. The cause is usually problems with the duct registry being blocked, closed or partially shut.
Another source of the problem with your H.V.A.C. could be outside. Blockages to airflow will limit the systems ability to operate. The removal of any vines, leaves, dirt or debris is important.
While these are just a few of the problems that can lead to issues with your H.V.A.C., it’s important to call a professional company, like Glenn-Aire, and have one of our technicians analyse your system to ensure there aren’t hidden factors that can lead to far more expensive repairs in the future.
