Your home's HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) system is an essential part of keeping you and your family comfortable year-round. But like any complex piece of machinery, it can develop problems over time.
Here are the top 10 most common repairs that homeowners encounter with their HVAC systems:
Clogged Air Filters: Dirty air filters can reduce the efficiency of your HVAC system and cause it to shut down. A simple fix for this is to check and replace the air filter regularly.
Faulty Thermostat: A malfunctioning thermostat can prevent your HVAC system from turning on or from maintaining the desired temperature. Replacing or recalibrating the thermostat can solve this problem.
Leaky Ducts: Leaky ducts can allow heated or cooled air to escape, which can cause your HVAC system to work harder and increase your energy bills. Sealing or replacing the ducts can solve this problem.
Refrigerant Leaks: Refrigerant leaks can cause your air conditioner to lose its cooling power. A professional technician will need to locate and repair the leak and recharge the refrigerant.
Clogged Drain Line: A clogged drain line can cause water damage and affect the functioning of your HVAC system. Clearing the drain line and making sure it's properly installed can solve this problem.
Compressor Issues: A malfunctioning compressor can cause your air conditioner to lose its cooling power. Replacing the compressor or repairing any mechanical problems can solve this issue.
Blower Motor Issues: A faulty blower motor can prevent your HVAC system from circulating air properly. Replacing the blower motor or repairing any mechanical problems can solve this issue.
Ignition Control Problems: A malfunctioning ignition control can prevent your furnace from turning on. Replacing the ignition control or repairing any mechanical problems can solve this issue.
Faulty Wiring: Wiring problems can prevent your HVAC system from functioning properly. Replacing or repairing any damaged wiring can solve this issue.
Leaky Roof or Attic: A leaking roof or attic can allow water to enter your HVAC system and cause damage. Fixing the roof or attic and making sure it's properly insulated can solve this problem.
It's important to note that these are some of the most common issues that homeowners may encounter with their HVAC systems, however, there may be other issues that could arise. Regular maintenance and inspection by a professional can help prevent these problems or catch them before they become major issues.
