Lack of Maintenance:
Regularly scheduled maintenance by a licensed service contractor is crucial for keeping your system in proper working order. By properly maintaining your equipment, you can avoid many common furnace repairs.
There are many different thermostats, both programmable and non-programmable. Frequently, when a homeowner believes their furnace is not operating correctly, it is an issue with the thermostat or setup. A malfunctioning thermostat can cause your HVAC-R system to run inefficiently or stop working altogether.
Mechanical Wear and Tear:
There are many mechanical components your heating system relies on. The components’ normal wear and tear can negatively impact your unit’s performance.
The most common reason trips a circuit breaker is an overworking blower or mechanical/ electrical faulty parts.
Blown Fuses or Tripped Breakers:
The most common reason trips a circuit breaker is an overworking blower or mechanical / electrical faulty parts.
Dirty Condenser / Evaporator Coils:
Your air conditioner needs to undergo routine maintenance. It is not cooling as well as it could be. Dirt and debris can clog the coils of your system, significantly reduce the efficiency, and wear it out sooner.
Blower Runs Continuously:
There are a few reasons a blower may run continuously. Before calling for service, check the fan switch on the thermostat. The motor will operate continually when the thermostat is set to the fan-on setting.
Drain pipes can leak water if the drain lines are either clogged or cracked.
Ignition problems are one of the most common problems with HVAC-R systems. They can be caused by a variety of factors, including a dirty or faulty pilot light, a dirty or faulty flame sensor, a malfunctioning gas valve, or a problem with the control board. Solutions include cleaning, replacing, or repairing the affected components.
Dirty filters can restrict airflow, which can lead to decreased efficiency and increased energy consumption. They can also cause the system to work harder, which can lead to premature wear and tear. To prevent dirty filters, it is important to change them regularly, according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Refrigerant leaks can cause the system to lose efficiency and may even lead to the system not working at all. Refrigerant leaks can be caused by a number of factors, including faulty seals, damaged components, and improper installation. If you suspect a refrigerant leak, it is important to have the system inspected by a qualified technician as soon as possible.
The compressor is the heart of the HVAC-R system and is responsible for circulating the refrigerant. Compressor problems can be caused by a number of factors, including overheating, electrical problems, and wear and tear. If the compressor fails, the system will not work.
Electrical problems can cause the system to malfunction or even stop working altogether. Electrical problems can be caused by a number of factors, including loose or damaged wiring, faulty fuses or breakers, and power surges.
