Basic Troubleshooting for HVAC Issues

Published by Jennifer Fletcher

Do you feel that there’s something wrong with your home’s HVAC system? If so, then you should be able to do some basic troubleshooting. Here our air conditioning and heating repair specialists talk about how to narrow down the possible causes of your HVAC system’s current issue and, if necessary, get help from a professional to have it fixed.

Before You Look at the HVAC Unit

Troubleshooting begins even before you check out the actual HVAC unit. Start by checking for spots in your house that feel too hot or too cold. Poor distribution of cool air could be caused by a blocked vent outlet that needs to be cleaned. Of course, there’s also the matter of checking to see if your thermostat simply isn’t configured properly.

Inspect the Air Filter

Air conditioning and heating service experts say that cleaning the dust filters on a regular basis will help keep your HVAC system running smoothly. If you have clean vents and you’re still not getting the right temperatures, it might be the unit’s dust filter keeping the system from working efficiently. Some dust filters can be cleaned, but others may have to be completely replaced.

Check for Leaks

If the dust filters are in good shape, there could be something wrong with the HVAC unit’s internal components. The first thing you should do is to check for signs of leaks. Water leaks are a cause for some concern, but you really want to keep an eye out for signs of coolant leaks. This is a common problem for very old HVAC systems that often calls for professional repairs.

The Importance of Regular Checkups

Troubleshooting an HVAC unit is possible for most homeowners, but you’re still better off not having to deal with these issues at all. This is why we recommend calling air conditioning installation and repair experts to have your unit checked every few months. This way, common issues are prevented well before they even show up in the first place.
