How To Recognize When You Need HVAC Repairs

Your HVAC system controls your home’s climate, enables you to handle interior humidity, and provides clean, filtered air to breathe. Knowing the symptoms indicating you need heating and AC repairs helps you catch potential problems before they damage your HVAC unit. Signs that you should call for professional HVAC technicians include:

Poor-quality Air

If your family begins showing respiratory or sinus problems that last longer than usual, you may have an air quality problem. Before calling HVAC repair companies, you can check your HVAC unit for some easy fixes, including:

  • Checking and changing the air filter
  • Vacuuming your air filter’s grills and surrounding frame
  • Removing debris from on and around your outdoor HVAC unit

Accumulated Moisture

Too much condensation in your HVAC system contributes to mold and mildew growth that may find its way into your home. Dripping water from your coils can cause this problem, as can too much moisture in your air ducts. Ask your HVAC tech about duct cleaning and how it can help your moisture problems.

A Malfunctioning HVAC System

Whether you use gas or electricity to power your home, HVAC systems sometimes develop functionality issues. Pay attention to your HVAC unit and stay familiar with its normal sounds, run times, and capabilities. You may need HVAC repair in El Cajon, CA, if you notice any of the following:

  • Your HVAC makes clunking, ticking, or popping noises.
  • Your HVAC doesn’t turn on.
  • Your thermostat can’t control the HVAC system.
  • You smell a strange odor from your HVAC unit.
  • Your HVAC doesn’t cool or heat as well as before.
  • You notice short cycling (bursts of activity occurring in quick succession).

What Are the Most Common HVAC Repairs?

Wear and Tear

Regardless of how well you maintain your HVAC system, eventually, parts will break or wear out. Maximum Comfort Heating & Air Conditioning will troubleshoot the problem, identify which parts need replacement or repair, and discuss those with you before commencing the work.

Problems With Your Air Filter

A clogged air filter reduces your airflow and filtration, while an incorrectly sized filter allows too much unfiltered air through. Changing your air filter regularly and ensuring you use the right air filter size keeps your interior air quality as high as possible. Our technicians can help you choose the correct air filter for your HVAC unit.

Fuse or Circuit Breaker Problems

When your HVAC unit works overtime to keep up with your temperature settings, it may blow a fuse or trip the circuit breaker. Check your unit for clogs or blockages and fix them, then reset the fuse or breaker. Contact us for professional HVAC service if you continue to have fuse or breaker problems.

Dirty Coils

Your air conditioner relies on clean condenser and evaporator coils to transfer refrigerant in your HVAC unit. While some homeowners attempt DIY coil cleaning, the equipment and methods used might not completely clean the coils and may cause damage to your system. HVAC repair technicians with Maximum Comfort Heating & Air Conditioning have the best tools and professional experience getting between these tight coils for a thorough cleaning.

Thermostat Problems

Controlling your HVAC system starts with the thermostat. If your thermostat malfunctions, you may lose the ability to control the system from your mobile app, turn the system on and off, set the thermostat to heat or cool, or keep your home at the ideal temperature. Maximum Comfort Heating & Air Conditioning technicians can help determine whether your thermostat needs repair or replacement.
