We need our heating and air conditioning systems all year long. That’s why when something goes wrong, we really feel it. Here are two common summer HVAC problems, and how you can avoid them:
It seems counterintuitive to think your air conditioner can freeze in the summer, but it’s actually a common problem. There are two main causes for this: a dirty air filter or dirty coils. Air conditioners count on continuous airflow in order to cool your home. When the filter is dirty it prevents proper airflow, which in turn causes the condensation to freeze before it can be drained away. The same thing is true of dirty condenser coils. If the airflow is impeded, the coils freeze. The best way to avoid this is with regular maintenance to ensure proper airflow.
When your air-conditioning system runs, it creates moisture as it cools and dehumidifies the air in your home. This moisture drips off the system and into a condensate drain. A common summer HVAC issue is when the drain gets blocked causing a system leak which can cause serious water damage in your home. To avoid a blocked drain, it’s important to change your air filter regularly to prevent extra dirt and debris from running into the drain. Another way to prevent this is with regular maintenance to make sure your system is draining properly.
There are a lot of things that can go wrong when it comes to mechanical systems such as your HVAC system. With the right maintenance, you can proactively fix and prevent these summertime issues.
Tom and I would like to take a moment to thank you for your recent visit to inspect and clean our heating equipment. As always, we received your normal professional and informative information. We consider you the most knowledgeable person we have ever dealt with when it comes to our heating and cooling equipment. When you put in our new system a few years ago you advised us on what would work best for our home and we were very pleased with what we decided to have installed.
We have been dealing with you for years and would not consider contacting anyone else when we have a problem or for our annual inspection. We do not hesitate to recommend you to all of our family and friends whenever they have a need for a top notch heating and air specialist.
