Is Your Air Conditioner or Furnace Acting Up? Try These Tips First
Any indication that there is something wrong with the air conditioner or furnace in your house can easily alarm even the calmest person. While your first instinct may be to call for air conditioning service or heating repair, it’s possible you may not need the help of our team.
Sometimes, simple errors are to blame when homeowners experience what appears to be a malfunction of the furnace, heat pump, or air conditioner. These errors are situations most people can solve themselves and save money without making a request to access a technician and paying the cost of a service call.
Next time you have an AC unit blowing warm air, an HVAC appliance that doesn’t turn on, or other HVAC problem, try some easy troubleshooting steps before you request repair service to see if you are able to resolve simple HVAC errors yourself and restore efficient, functional heating or air conditioning in your home.
- Thermostat Troubleshooting. The thermostat is the control that communicates heating and cooling needs to your heating unit or AC system. Make sure the device has batteries and that the circuit breaker has not tripped if the thermostat is connected to your home’s electric system. There will be a switch that can be flipped between heat and cool modes – make sure it is set to the correct system that you want to use. Check to see that the temperature settings are correct to trigger the furnace or air conditioner to turn on – for heating, set it a few degrees higher that the room’s current temperature, and set it a few degrees lower for cooling.
- Power Troubleshooting. A heating or AC unit will not turn on if its power supply is somehow interrupted. The thermostat must have power to communicate to the furnace or air conditioner – check its batteries or the breaker. Check the circuit breakers in your electric panel that control the heating unit or AC unit and make sure the breaker isn’t tripped – reset the breaker if it has tripped. Next, check the switch or nearby the unit – set the switch to ON.
- Check Flash Codes. If you have a newer furnace or air conditioning system, the indoor HVAC unit may display error codes, also called flash codes, when a malfunction occurs. Check inside the HVAC indoor unit to see the flash code display, and reference the number of flashes you see with a list of codes to learn the issue and determine if heating or air conditioning service is necessary or if it is a minor issue you can fix.
Do You Need HVAC Repair Services for Your Air Conditioner, Furnace, Heat Pump, or Other HVAC System?
With regular maintenance, many HVAC problems with heating and cooling systems can be avoided. However, it is possible for your HVAC unit to experience performance and efficiency problems even when you’re strict about regular maintenance. These problems aren’t always apparent as they allow the system to continue running, but you may notice something’s amiss on your energy bill or based off poor comfort levels in the home.
Minor performance and HVAC efficiency issues have the potential to grow the longer they are allowed to exist without repair. Ignoring HVAC issues could lead to the need for extensive repair work that comes at a high cost, or the need for installation of an entirely new HVAC unit. Both these unfavorable situations will cost you much more than the simple repair services that could have saved you early on.
To avoid paying the cost of considerable repair work or the need to make an investment in new system installation before you’ve maximized the service life of your older unit, always be on the lookout for a sign that could indicate it’s time to call for HVAC repair service. Below, learn each sign to watch for:
1. Noisy Operation
During a normal HVAC cycle, you’ll hear the thermostat connect to the HVAC unit at the start of the cycle with a quick click. You may hear a click from the burners in your furnace activating, too. Inside, you may be able to hear a steady hum from the indoor equipment in a utility room or garage as well as the outdoor AC condenser unit in the background. Airflow from the ventilation ducts shouldn’t be noisy, but you may detect a gentle whooshing in the background as air starts to move into your living areas. Once the cycle is over, another click at the control signals the HVAC unit to shut down.
Any noise during startup, shutdown, or as the HVAC cycle runs beyond what is described above is cause for concern. Sudden grinding, squealing, shrieking, banging, and other sounds are a sign to call for repair services. They could also be a sign of system safety issues.
2. High Energy Bills
Often, the first sign of an HVAC problem comes with unexpectedly high energy bills. Unless utility cost has changed, you’re running your system more than usual, or outdoor temperatures are more extreme, your energy bill shouldn’t be shockingly high. A high bill means the system is using more energy to do its work, and there could be a malfunction impacting the system’s energy efficiency. There may be a repair issue with your HVAC system that can improve energy efficiency and your technician may advise you of other investment possibility to make your system more efficient, such as sealing or adding insulation to ducts and insulating the home.
