Going into the new year, there are likely many things you have put off for months. For many homeowners, HVAC repair is one of these tasks – and is arguably the most important. While your system might be performing well enough, there are some signs you should always be looking out for to determine if HVAC repair (or a newly installed system) could benefit you and your home.

Buildup of Dirt & Debris

Debris is another major contributor to HVAC issues, as every component of your system is susceptible to buildup. While dust and dirt can typically be quickly taken care of, sometimes the buildup can result in catastrophic damage that results in the need for HVAC repair services. If you find your system to be particularly dirty or dusty, there could be bigger factors at play. Our experts can help detect any potential problems, and repair your system to increase its efficiency.

Look Out For Leaks

Leaks are one of the biggest signs that your system is in dire need of repair/replacement, as this simple flaw could be costing you on energy bills. Every type of HVAC system has the potential to leak overtime, meaning the system will need to work harder to reach the same temperature. Leaks are most common on the refrigerant lines and heat exchanger, so check these areas first. Our HVAC repair services can restore your system to its former glory, replacing or sealing any problematic parts.

Noticing Corrosion

HVAC system components are susceptible to corrosion due to the combination of fragile wiring and moisture. Check the wiring and piping of your system thoroughly, looking for any signs of wear and tear. If you do not notice anything, but still find your system struggling to keep up, HVAC repair may be a necessity. Our experts will check your entire system, noticing flaws and vulnerabilities that many homeowners tend to overlook.

Frequent System Activation

If you’ve noticed your system is turning on more often without you adjusting the temperature/settings, there is a strong likelihood you need repairs or a complete system replacement.  Typical causes include control failures and sensor problems. Control failure occurs when your system is worn out, likely the fan or compressor controls. On the other hand, sensor problems occur when the thermostat sensor itself is malfunctioning. This sensor is responsible for telling the system when to turn off and on, so its failure will result in inconsistent (and frequent) activation. If your HVAC system is seemingly turning off and on at random, it is surely time for repairs.
