Some HVAC issues never get reported because they’re resolved with simple cleaning or changing of a filter. Other HVAC issues aren’t so simple and often cause big concerns at your home, especially if the problem is not addressed early. Regular preventative maintenance helps avoid the 5 top reported problems with HVAC systems on the list below.
1. Lack of Maintenance
Regular HVAC maintenance performed by a licensed contractor keeps your system working properly. Most of the most common furnace repairs can be avoided by calling excerpts out for maintenance each season. Maintenance protects your investment, ensuring you get the maximum lifetime possible from the unit. You can avoid costly breakdowns, experience energy cost savings, and avoid frustrations by scheduling regular maintenance.
2. Dirty Filters
Dirty air filters pollute the air, causing breathing problems, allergies, and other symptoms, especially in the elderly and children. Replacing filters regularly is one of the best ways to extend the HVAC system’s lifetime and improve furnace efficiency. Dirty filters restrict airflow, causing the unit to work harder to circulate air through the home. Don’t allow this to happen and change those air filters.
3. Ignition/Pilot Light Trouble
A dirty pilot, flame sensor or burners can cause ignition problems such as short cycling, furnace lockout, and pilot outage. It can also be the result of gas supply problems or system wear and tear. A trained service technician can deal with this potentially dangerous element of your HVAC system.
4. Malfunctioning Thermostat
With the variety of thermostats available these days, homeowners can easily get confused about its proper operation. Always start looking for the cause of the problem at the thermostat. It is possible that an issue with the thermostat settings is causing trouble. You can also check the batteries and make other adjustments that help save money each month.
5. Mechanical Wear and Tear
Mechanical wear and tear can occur when the mechanical components of the HVAC system malfunction, whether due to wear and tear or other problems. The belts and bearings can malfunction and cause overheating poor airflow, and other issues.
