Below are some of the most common problems with HVAC systems.

The Unit Wont Turn On

It is essential your HVAC is working during the hot, humid months and during the winter season when it is in constant use, the HVAC system may experience some glitches now and again, either due to human or electrical error.

Below are some of the most common problems with HVAC systems.

Air Conditioning Unit Cycles ON/OFF Frequency

This is another common problem with modern air conditioning units, and it often results from incorrect thermostat placement. If the thermostat is placed where warm either due to exposure to direct sunlight or heat is emitting appliance, the temperature readings can be compromised. If there is a need to change the location, you should consult a professional for proper placement and installation. You might also have a unit which is the wrong size for your home dimensions, and if you recently renovated your home you may need to consult a professional to do a load calculation..

Abnormal Noises At Start-Up Or Throughout Cycle

There are a few reasons you might be hearing odd noises when the air-conditioning unit is running, and one of the most common of this issues is a loose screw- either on the unit or one or the grilles or register. If the noise is loud and seems to be coming from a particular room, it could be a grille or register that needs to be tightened. You can also try tightening those parts of the unit where you find loose areas if the sound seems to be emanating from there. A consistent sound during a cycle may be signs of a bigger problem- including a bent fan blade- which means a HVAC professional would have to assess the unit.
