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.
All City Heat and Air came out and installed a new system for me 2 years ago. We have had maintenance contracts on the system since then. Their professionalism is what stands out to me about them. It's under a service contract so it's covered by the contract. They come out every 6 months and the price covers the life of the contract.
