Most common problems with HVAC systems:
Dirty or Clogged Filters
Clogged filters are one of the most common issues that most homeowners and business owners experience with their HVAC systems. Low airflow could be a sign of a clogged air filter. A clogged filter can restrict proper airflow and lead to poor air circulation in your property, worsening the indoor air quality in your home or business.
Clogged and dirty HVAC filters can cause allergies and breathing problems to your children, pets and other loved ones and even worsen allergy and asthma symptoms.
If you’ve noticed that your HVAC filter is dirty, you can check the air filter monthly to make sure it’s clean or change the filter as needed to avoid overworking your system. Regular HVAC cleaning and maintenance are crucial to avoid these problems.
Most of the issues occurring with your HVAC system are associated with your thermostat. It can be that the thermostat is dirty or in a bad location. When thermostats are too close to heat sources may cause higher reading temperatures by your thermostat. Your thermostat can also be old, broken or inaccurate, even when thermostats last for many years, sometimes need to be replaced.
High Energy Bills
In most cases, high energy bills are associated with clogged air filters, duct leaks, failing parts such as the motor, capacitor, etc, lack of maintenance, improper installation, and others.
