When you install the right size HVAC system, you have a heating and cooling system that not only performs optimally, but also helps your save money. On the other hand, you will have a system that does not perform as expected and increases your energy costs if you get an over-sized HVAC installed. However, there are times when you have problems with your HVAC system despite getting the ‘right-sized’ HVAC. Here are some common problems with HVAC systems and how you can deal with them.
Problems with the HVAC Filter
Blocked or clogged air filters is one of the most common problems that occur in HVAC systems. In case this happens with your HVAC system, change the filters right away. If you decide against that, then you will have a filter that reduces the airflow, eventually causing the unit to freeze.
An Inefficient Furnace Blower
Another common problem with HVAC systems is an inefficient furnace blower. The best to prevent or overcome this problem is keeping the place around the blower clear of any trash or debris. While you can do this yourself, it is best to get job performed by a professional HVAC service. Not only will the professionals ensure that the furnace blower is clear of any trash or debris, they will help fix any minor problems with your HVAC. So, if you want to keep the furnace blower of your HVAC efficient and working optimally, then schedule regular inspections of your system by HVAC professionals.
Problems with the HVAC Compressor
If the compressor of your HVAC stops working, then you have a big problem to deal with. If you want to avoid such a situation, then the best thing you can do is maintaining the compressor year-round to keep it in optimal-condition and functioning as normal. In case you notice problems with your compressor, you should check the compressor for refrigerant liquid and evaporator blower motor.
An undercharged refrigerant liquid will cause the HVAC compressor to become hot and eventually stop working. The best way to deal with this problem is maintaining proper amount of refrigerant liquid. If you’re confused as to what this means, then you can take help from an HVAC professional. The other problem with the HVAC compressor could be a blown fuse in the evaporator blower motor. The only way to deal with this problem is replacing the blown fuse.
