5 Issues That Occur When You Avoid HVAC Maintenance

air conditionerNo matter wht time of the year it is, your heating, air conditioning, and ventilation system in your home is essential for keeping you comfortable. When your HVAC stops working properly, your system won’t be able to adjust the temperature in your home, leaving you uncomfortable, unhappy, and very cranky. By receiving seasonal maintenance to your HVAC system, you’ll be able to eliminate any problems before they arise but if you put off seasonal maintenance, you’ll start having issues with your system that can call for expensive repairs.

Refridgerant Leaks

In order to make the air cool, condensors require a certain amount of refridgerant and without the correct amount of refridgerant, your system won’t work properly and will begin to push out warm air.

When your unit leaks reridgerant, it causes the system to run harder than necessary, making it less efficient and causing problems down the line. If you notice your air conditioner is pushing out warm air, check the refridgerant levels and if they’re low, give MRW Mechanical a call to ensure the issue is properly fixed before bigger issues arise.

Electric Control Failure

When air conditioning units are turned on and off frequently, the terminal and wires corrode faster than those of a unit that is used properly. As these wires corrode, the compressor and fan controls will begin to fail and before long, the unit will no longer work. If you start experiencing issues and to prevent further damage, call your HVAC technician to check out the issue as soon as possible.

Dirty Filters

When the filters in your HVAC system become dirty, the unit begins to run less efficiently and shortens the lifespan of your unit. Try to replace these filters every three months to keep your unit running as efficiently as possible and to maximize air flow.

Drainage Problems

The condensation pump in your unit is easily breakable, which will cause excess water to pool in the unit instead of draining properly. If your unit is close to your foundation, the water can leak into your home, causing water damage to your foundation. If you suspect drainage problems with your HVAC unit, give us a call to assess the sitution and replace your pump.

Sensor Malfunctions

The themostat in your home has a sensor on it, signaling to your unit whe it should turn on and when it sould turn off. If the sensor is damaged, your air conditioning unit won’t cycle on and off when it’s supposed to. If you are met with quiet even after adjusting the temperature and thermostat, this could be the issue! Thankfully, replacing the sensor is much more affordable than replacing your entire unit so be sure to call in a professional before deciding to install a new system.
