After winter, spring calls for a celebration! But not throughout the season! Warm months mean getting your HVAC system properly working. Spring calls for intensive preparation for possible problems you may face with your heating or cooling unit.
Below are common HVAC problems this springtime! Who knows? You might encounter some of them, or worse, ALL of them. Let’s get started!
Your HVAC duct system delivers cool air in all areas of your home. Once it leaks, you are either cooling your outdoors or pulling in unfiltered air inside the house. Duct leakage is one of the overlooked HVAC spring problems that can cost you large sums of money. Disconnected ducts can completely make you feel uncomfortable over time.
Dirty Evaporator Coil
As we speak, your evaporator coil must be starting to accumulate tons of dust and dirt again! Dirty coils signal an increase in operating costs which you are trying to avoid. To prevent dust build up, periodic cleaning and check-up is necessary.
Not cooling air conditioner? Tripped breaker might be the reason! Breakers protect your HVAC system for potential problems and worse, expensive repairs. Allow the experts to check the system for loose wires or broken capacitor. Somewhere in the breaker must have gone wrong.
Does your refrigerant leak? Take note, your air conditioning system should be sealed at all times! Any leaks on the refrigerant can result to rise in electricity bills and less on efficiency. The compressor can be damaged. Overall, your AC unit may no longer serve its purpose.
With regular filter clean up, you will not end up getting dirty filters. So, is this something you should be worried about? Yes! When not addressed immediately, dirty filters can lead to serious problems such as reduced indoor quality, frozen indoor coils and a less comfortable home. You do not want that to happen, do you?
Noisy Air Vents
Air vent making noise is normal. In fact, some systems make louder noises than normal. Technically, there is nothing wrong with that! But, if the noise starts to bother you at some point, producing a tuning-fork, whistling, screeching type of sound, it becomes a problem. This happens when the system pulls in more air that increases both the velocity and pressure. Hence, there is an increasing sound level on one end.
The high-pitched sound from the air vents suggests insufficiency of return air. If there is enough return air, the pressure drops automatically.
