Common HVAC System Problems and How to Deal With Them

Aug 10, 2020

HVAC systems are essential in your homes during the hot summer and winter months. During these times, your HVAC system must be working correctly to create the perfect environment for your home. For your HVAC system to work effectively, it must receive regular inspections and maintenance from a trained HVAC engineer.

Far too many people fail to realize this, which results in problems with their HVAC units getting worse and worse.

Your HVAC Systems isn’t Cooling Your Home.

Since the whole point of an air conditioner unit is to cool your living space, if it fails, there is no point in having one. Have you considered your AC unit size compared to the size of your home? Your AC must be powerful enough to ensure a difference of around 25 degrees between the outside temperature and the inside temperature. If it isn’t, you probably need to consider replacing it with a more powerful unit.

Problems with HVAC Filters and Air Quality

The state of the filter inside your home’s HVAC system directly affects the air quality inside your home. If you have issues with air conditioning, it may be that you need to clean or replace the filters. Your HVAC’s filter ensures that all of the air circulated around your home through your air ducts is clean and doesn’t contain any dust or unwanted particles like mold spores or pollen. If you don’t take steps to ensure that your HVAC system is well maintained, you will end up breathing all of these nasty things.

Strange Sounds from the HVAC Outdoor Unit

There are various sounds that your HVAC system may occasionally make. Most often, they are nothing to be concerned about. Many units make a lot of noise when starting up and shutting off. Some outdoor units make a kind of buzzing sound, but this is just the low voltage device inside the unit and is nothing to be concerned about.

Vibration sounds are normal and do not usually reflect any technical problems with the HVAC unit, but they can be annoying. If the unit is making loud vibration sounds bothering you, one potential solution is the installation of rubber pads underneath the unit. With summer here, it’s essential to ensure that your HVAC system is in ‘good shape’.
