Looking Forward to 2014: Common HVAC Problems and Their Solutions

It’s that time of year again! Time to say goodbye to this year and hello to next year! What do you have on your New Year’s Resolutions list? Is home improvement on there anywhere? Are you taking stock of your home, its appliances and what you’d like to have fixed or replaced? We here at Aabbott Ferraro have a few suggestions for you about your HVAC unit.

If your HVAC unit is giving you trouble, your first instinct might be to start budgeting for a new one. But before you do that, here are a few common problems and their fixes. Call in a trained professional, like the ones at Aabbott Ferraro, to get these problems fixed before you go out and buy a whole new unit.

One of the biggest culprits of HVAC problems are blown fuses. A trained technician will check the breaker to make sure the problem isn’t a blown fuse. If it is, it’s a simple fix and could save you thousands on a new HVAC unit. Also, your unit could have worn contactors. Each HVAC unit usually has three contactors and when one goes bad, it can affect the entire unit.

Filters can also cause problems for HVAC units. When was the last time you checked your filters and changed them? This is actually something you can do on your own. Take the filter out of your HVAC unit and hold it up to the light. If you cannot see light passing through it, it’s time to get a new filter. They can be found at your local hardware store and are usually inexpensive. After you change them, you should notice an improvement in how your unit functions and heats or cools your home.

This is just a brief rundown of common HVAC problems you might be experiencing. For expert HVAC repairs and installations, call Aabbott Ferraro at (651) 776-4799 or contact us online for a free estimate or to schedule an appointment.
