Similar to a car that does not get the regular tune-up and other maintenance that it needs, your furnace, heater, and air conditioning systems can end up being ineffective as well as unsafe without careful and steady attention. Read on for more on problems to look out for in your HVAC system. If any of these sound familiar, contact us for immediate service in Long Island and Five Boroughs.
What are Signs Your Heater and Furnace Need Repair?
Other problems you may encounter:
Airflow problems also arise from a poorly maintained furnace and heater. These are often caused from malfunctioning bearings, belts, and motor fans. This will eventually lead to poor heating control and an overheated furnace.
Dirty or clogged filters are another dilemma that can come from poorly maintained furnaces and heaters. This eventually results in comfort issues and disturbed airflow. Aside from that, ignition control problems can result in low or intermittent heat.
What are Common Air Conditioning Problems?
Air conditioning units have their own set of issues.
Haphazard, improper, or uncertified wiring is dangerous and prevents your system from obtaining power, which is a fire hazard.
Low refrigerant is another common problem. Refrigerant, commonly known as Freon, is the chemical that helps cool the air. Low refrigerant levels often indicate a problem or a leak within the system. There is likely a leak if your air conditioning unit needs to be recharged with Freon on a constant basis.
A non-functioning outdoor fan is also a problem. If the fan is not running properly, heat transfer will not take place. This can cause the unit’s compressor to overheat and trip its safety overload. What’s worse, internal damage can affect the compressor.
Is Regular Maintenance Needed?
We suggest maintenance at least once a year. The best time to have your furnace and heater inspected is at the end of the heating season.
To save on costly repairs and breakdowns, we recommend having your air conditioning unit inspected every six months. This will allow us to replace your air filters and stop potential problems before they develop.
Don’t spend your hard earned money on a broken HVAC system. The key to a healthy system year-round is regular maintenance. More than half of the calls we regularly receive regarding lack of heat is due to a lack of maintenance.
We offer affordable maintenance plans to give all of our customers that peace of mind they need.
