Keeping your HVAC system in good shape is an important part of being a homeowner. Regular heating and air conditioning maintenance can ensure that your units run smoothly and efficiently. However, even with regular maintenance, problems can arise. If you’re having issues with your HVAC system, you may be hesitant to call for professional help, as this can be expensive. Here is a list of items to check before calling in the pros.
Air filters get dirty, and they should be replaced every four to six months to keep your system operating as efficiently as possible. Before making a call to an AC repair technician, check your filter. If you haven’t changed it in a while, swap it out for a new one and let the system run for a few hours.
Take a look in your breaker box to see the HVAC circuit breaker has been flipped. This will sometimes happen, especially if you’ve had work done at your house or the power was shut off for maintenance. If the breaker is flipped, you can turn it back on. However, keep in mind that a flipped breaker may be a sign of a larger issue with your HVAC unit.
Check for Blockages
If you’re not feeling air come out of your vents, check them for blockages, along with your air registers and grills. Make sure there is nothing visible inside the spaces that could be blocking the air flow. Also check to see that all vents are open and clear of furniture that may be reducing air flow and circulation.
Check the Power Switches
HVAC systems have main power switches on the actual units. Depending on the system you have, you may need to check units both indoors and outdoors. Also be sure to take a look at the condensate pump and AC drain line, as these typically have switches as well. Make sure all switches are on.
