MOST COMMON HVAC PROBLEMS
Although there are some HVAC problems that can be easily fixed with a simple cleaning of filters and coils. Many of the most common cooling and heating system faults can lead to much more serious problems if not dealt with quickly.
RESPOND TO THE MOST POPULAR COOLING AND HEATING PROBLEMS
1) INADEQUATE MAINTENANCE
It is important to have your furnace serviced regularly by a registered service provider in order to maintain its good condition. The professional service of your furnace can avoid most of the most common furnace issues. Your home heating system is likely to have cost hundreds of dollars. How can you protect your investment?
2) FILTERS THAT DIRTY
You can extend the life expectancy and effectiveness of your furnace by replacing your filter every so often. Filter clogging will reduce airflow and make it more difficult for the furnace to circulate heat throughout your home. This causes comfort issues and puts unnecessary stress on your furnace's blower.
3) PROBLEMS IN THE PILOT/IGNITION
A variety of factors can cause ignition issues. A dirty pilot, flame sensor, or other burners could all cause an ignition problem. This can lead to short cycling, pilot outage, and furnace lockout. The issue could also be caused due to a gas supply interruption or wear and tear to an ignition component such as a hot ignitor, thermocouple, or hot surface ignitor.
4) FAILURES IN THE THERMOSTAT
You can choose from a wide range of thermostats, both non-programmable and programmable. The thermostat is usually the problem. If you have the owner's manual and operating instructions, you might be able to prevent costly or unnecessary service calls. Programmable thermostat batteries will need to get replaced on a frequent basis. If the problem persists, a technician can quickly diagnose the issue.
5) WEAR and TEAR MECHANICAL ENGINEERING
Your heating system is dependent on many mechanical components. These components can wear down over time, which can lead to a decrease in the efficiency of your machine. Bearings and belts, for instance, can cause excessive heating or inadequate heating. Regular maintenance includes checking for worn belts or straining them and, if required, lubricating the bearings and motors.
6) OUT THE BOX FURNACE NOSES
Some furnace noises may be harmless, while others could indicate a mechanical problem. A whining or shouting motor could be an indication that the motor's bearings have failed. It is possible that the engine needs to be replaced in order to avoid a failure of the furnace. A brand new furnace can be installed if the engine is damaged. Unclean burners and airflow problems can cause additional noises. These signs should not be ignored in any event, as they could indicate a dangerous operating condition or cause a furnace to fail.
7) TRIPPED BREAKERS / BLOWN FUSES
A furnace circuit breaker trip is most often caused by an overworked fan. Your blower will work harder to overcome obstructions in your system's flow. Most likely, your air filter is clogged. If your air filter becomes clogged, it will make your blower work harder to push air through the filter. The blower's energy usage will rise, and your circuit breaker might trip. Before you reset your circuit breaker, replace the filter with a clean one.
COILS FROM A DIRTY CONDENSER/EVAPORATOR
Most likely, your air conditioner isn’t cooling as efficiently because of its normal maintenance. Dirty or accumulated debris can cause your system to slow down and wear out faster. After turning off the power, spray the outdoor coil. Turn off the power supply by using either the electric panel or the electrical disconnect next to the condenser. The furnace filters may not be replaced regularly and the interior evaporator could get clogged. A clogged evaporator can make your furnace or air conditioner less efficient and cause the system to work harder. It is best to have a professional clean your HVAC Marietta ga coils.
