Regular Maintenance Helps Prevent Frequent Breakdowns
Your HVAC may appear to be working perfectly, but many parts of its system are hidden away from plain view, making it difficult to tell if something is out of order until it’s too late. Ignoring your system and assuming it’s in peak condition can be a costly mistake. We here at Evans Heating & Cooling have compiled some useful information to save you from having to pay for repeated repairs and draining your finances.
A well-functioning HVAC system, of course, implies cheaper utility expenses. If your air filters are clean and the parts are working properly, your HVAC system will not have to work as hard to chill the rooms in your house.
Similarly, an expert HVAC service specialist can recalibrate your thermostat settings to guarantee optimal operation. Because thermostat settings progressively wander, it's critical to obtain an annual checkup to recalibrate your thermostat. Even a two-degree fluctuation in temperature might affect your electricity expenses.
Some of these issues require the services of an HVAC contractor, while others are do-it-yourself projects. Here are some of the most frequent issues with HVAC:
- Thermostat Not Functioning
If something goes awry with the thermostat or any connected remote control devices, the entire system suffers. When your air conditioner or heater starts acting up, first check the thermostat, since the repairs for this frequent problem are easy and affordable.
- Reduced Effectiveness
Filters that are dirty restrict the normal flow of air, therefore you need to replace them every two or three months. Blockages are another major cause of this. Remove any debris from your central unit's exterior. Repeat the process for your vents, ducts, and grills. Dirty ducts and associated components can reduce overall efficiency.
- Circuit Breaker Trip
If the HVAC won't turn on or has a restricted capacity, don't buy a new HVAC system just yet. Both a tripped circuit breaker and a blown fuse cause substantial problems in your system, and these problems are generally easy to investigate and repair.
Your HVAC system must be properly maintained in order to perform correctly. Regular maintenance checks, changing air filters throughout your house, and alerting specialists when you notice any problems with your system are all examples of proper maintenance. Even if you follow all of these steps, your HVAC system may have small issues.
If you suspect an issue with your HVAC equipment, checking your thermostat may provide answers. If you set your thermostat and the temperature does not adjust as expected, this might indicate that your equipment is not working correctly. It's also worth noting that your thermostat should be set at a steady temperature at all times. Year-round, a temperature of 68-70 degrees is excellent; nevertheless, continuous temperature fluctuations may pose difficulties for your system.
A Tune Up Increases Efficiency
When your system runs as efficiently as possible, its components will not be worn down from being worked unnecessarily hard. This reduces the chance of devastating breakdowns and associated repairs. In addition, when your HVAC runs more efficiently, it will prolong the lifespan of the system, giving you more time between replacement costs Efficiency also means smaller energy bills for you.
