Common HVAC Problems — Part II

With the hottest days of the summer finally upon us, you’ve surely been enjoying the cool and refreshing effects of your air conditioner. A broken HVAC unit will create uncomfortable conditions in your home, so it’s important that you become informed about basic HVAC issues.

We explained a few common HVAC problems in a previous post, and in today’s post, we’ll continue to explain some of the HVAC issues our technicians frequently encounter. If you need HVAC repair or HVAC maintenance in Denver or the nearby areas, then get in touch with a member of Pure Air Solutions to schedule an appointment!

Clogged Filters

As we mentioned in last week’s post, a severely clogged filter can fill your home with unpleasant and foul aromas. As you probably expect from the name, the air filter’s job is to keep dust, dirt, and other contaminants from filling your home. Air filters can only be packed with so much filth before they are rendered useless, and when this happens, you can expect your home to smell quite unpleasant.

Another indication of a dirty filter is rising energy bills. Dirty filters cause your HVAC system to work harder, leading to increased electric bills and wearing down the internal components of your system. Even if you’re not experiencing unpleasant aromas in your home, you should check your air filter if you notice that your utility bills are rising unexpectedly.

You don’t want to have to pay for expensive HVAC repairs, so make sure that you’re checking your air filter every three or four months. While the protocol will vary slightly according to the HVAC model in your home, as a general rule of thumb, you should compare the air filter in your unit with a brand new one. A dirty or discolored filter is a sign that you should swap it out for a clean one!

If you’re not sure when to replace your air filter, then just get in touch with one of our friendly HVAC technicians for a service appointment! We’ll check all of your HVAC system’s components, as well as the air filter.

Broken Thermostat

If you’re having issues with the temperature in your home, then your first suspicion is probably that you need HVAC repair. While this certainly could be the case, you shouldn’t rule out a broken thermostat as a possible cause. Your thermostat is supposed to regulate the temperature inside your home, and even three or four degrees can make a significant difference in your comfort level. If you notice that your thermostat’s reading doesn’t accurately reflect how your home feels, or if the temperature in your home is fluctuating wildly, then call our HVAC company to schedule an inspection.
