Most Common HVAC Problems

The HVAC system of your building has far more functions than simply keeping the temperatures even throughout your home. A working HVAC system can have an impact on your safety, energy bills, and overall productivity., not to mention the comfort of the house’s residents. However, like any household appliance, it needs to be maintained and repaired. It’s only a matter of time before something happens to it. So, if you are in possession of an HVAC system in Fort Pierce FL, here are the most common problems that your system is likely to face.

#1. No Maintenance

If you want your system to remain functional and healthy, you should probably invest in a preventative maintenance program. This will do the job that’s stated on the title: perform regular maintenance and checkups on your HVAC system. Because if you don’t, then the lack of oversight and necessary maintenance will give way to further problems. Always make sure someone has recently taken a look at your system, in order to circumvent potential problems down the road.

#2. Clogged/dirty filters

Another thing you should regularly check when it comes to your unit is the filters at least once a month. If they get too dirty, then your air conditioner will be forced to work even harder to make up the difference. This can overclock the system and cause it to overheat. Quarterly replacement of your filters will make sure your HVAC system is running at peak efficiency at all times.

#3. Refrigerant leaks

Refrigerant” refers to the liquid agent that is vital to the air conditioning portion of the system. The liquid cools and dehumidifies the air that goes into the interior of your home. So obviously, a lack of coolant means that the air conditioner can’t do its job correctly and will likely overheat because the coolant also prevents that from happening as well. On top of that, no coolant means the condenser starts working overtime, which can make problems of its own.

#4. Imbalanced dampers

Dampers are the part of ventilation that reduces airflow on one line and increase it in another when needed. And the only way they can do this efficiently is if they remain balanced. Imbalance, then, means that some rooms will cool or heat up much faster than others.

If you are experiencing any of these problems, contact the professionals over at A/C Medics Air Conditioning and Heating.
