We’ve all been there. It’s either the hottest or coldest day of the year, and just as you make the decision to stay inside all day, you realize your HVAC unit is not working. How do you know when it’s time to stop troubleshooting and start calling a professional? Our West Palm Beach HVAC experts break down the top ten most common problems customers experience with their cooling and heating systems.
- Not Enough Regular Maintenance. Contrary to what most homeowners think, HVAC units cannot be simply installed and then left to run on their own with no maintenance. Even aside from regular filter replacement, it’s important to have a licensed professional visit at least once per season to perform a thorough inspection. One of the most important things this does is grant you piece of mind. Your HVAC system was a big investment, it’s important to protect it.
- Thermostat Is Malfunctioning. It’s possible that your problem is not with the HVAC unit itself, but rather the thermostat. If your thermostat has batteries, first check if those need to be replaced. If you still have the owner’s manual, a quick peruse through that might do the job. Otherwise, a visit from a service technician is a quick and efficient way to diagnose the problem.
- Excessively Dirty Filters. When it comes to easy ways to prevent big problems, changing your air filter regularly is at the top of the list. This small maintenance task extends the lifespan of your unit and helps it to run more efficiently. More efficient still is to utilize an air purifier system to keep dust, allergens and pollutants out of the air and out of your filters. Air purifiers like the REME-HALO system are installed in-duct and are effective against all three categories of indoor air pollutants: particulates, microbial and gases. Systems like this do not have to be pricey—at Pro-Star, we even offer a $20 discount for first time service customers.
