The Most Common Winter HVAC Repairs

Jan 8, 2021

When extreme weather hits, we rely heavily on our HVAC systems to keep us warm and comfortable through it all. At this point in the winter, our heating systems have been working nearly around the clock for several months. With all of that use, we start to see many winter HVAC failures around this time of year. What are the most common issues we run into?

Changing Furnace Filters

We’ve all used our furnaces so much this year alone that a filter replacement is surely due by now (if you haven’t replaced yours recently already). The dust and debris that filters trap can start to reduce the airflow through your home, and it can bring your air quality down as well. If your filter looks anything like this, we recommend replacing it as soon as you reasonably can.

Standard Wear and Tear

Heating units have several replaceable parts that wear and tear over time. Annual inspections can help you make sure these parts get replaced before smaller issues turn into larger ones. If your HVAC system has not been serviced within the last several months, there is a decent chance you’ll need an experienced technician to survey your system and diagnose/ fix the failure.

Uneven Heating

It’s incredibly frustrating when parts of your home feel nice and cozy during the winter, but others feel like the Arctic Circle. Routine maintenance may fix this issue, but we like to follow up on our maintenance with checks for cracks and/or drafts that could contribute to the problem.

Thermostat Issues

Thermostat issues throughout the winter are prevalent. Often, a thermostat recalibration or rewiring will restore your home to a comfortable temperature in no time at all. Sometimes, it can be even easier than that with a simple battery replacement!

"Rob was extremely knowledgeable and anticipated the problem based on the call, picked up the part needed prior to arrival at our home so that he was completely prepared to fix our heater."

"We had a wonderful experience working with Rob Will & Will-Air. We called a few HVAC companies and chose to work with Will-Air because they were so friendly and helpful on the phone. They scheduled an appointment for that afternoon and offered to call 45 minutes before arriving and even bring a plug-in AC unit in case the repair would take two days. Rob Will was honest when diagnosing the issue with the air conditioning and very personable! We will definitely call him back for any future HVAC needs and recommend this company to our friends!"

"Will-Air spent the time to thoroughly check out both systems. We were so pleased with the thoroughness of their preventative maintenance that we asked them to give us a quote for a large ductwork project. Again we were pleased with the overall knowledge, communication, and details included in their written quote and verbal explanation."
