Mar 19, 2021 | HVAC | 0 comments

Whether it is the dead middle of winter or during the peak of a summer heat wave, things can take a turn for the worse in no time when we aren’t being proactive with our home heating and cooling equipment.

Because of this, there are certain HVAC troubleshooting tips every homeowner should know, to help save them time and avoid discomfort and costly situations.

To help homeowners in this regard, we at Lancaster Furnace & Air Conditioning present the following Top 5 HVAC troubleshooting tips:

Check Your Thermostat 

Sometimes a defective thermostat can cause issues that affect your HVAC system and cause comfort problems. To see if this is causing an HVAC problem, adjust the thermostat and see if the HVAC system follows suit. If it doesn’t, this is probably the problem. Having said that, you should always check the batteries before taking the next step of calling your HVAC service provider.

Check Your Air Vents

Checking all of your HVAC system’s air vents is another way to troubleshoot for problems with your system. As such, check them to see if any of these vents are clogged or obstructed by anything in any way. If they are, clearing them to allow proper airflow will help to improve the efficiency of your HVAC equipment.

Check Outdoor Unit 

If your HVAC system is giving you problems, make sure to check your outdoor unit. Make sure it’s clean and clear of all debris like shrubs, leaves, weeds, yard waste, and snow. This is one of our essential HVAC troubleshooting tips, as it can often prevent small issues turning into much larger and much more expensive problems.

Replace Your Air Filters 

Replacing your HVAC system’s air filters regularly is good practice as an HVAC owner. This relatively inexpensive solution can help your system run more efficiently and prevents major breakdowns. Simply locate the filter on your system and swap it out for a new one.

Check the Power 

This troubleshooting tip might seem simple. However, it can save you a lot of trouble. Make sure you double check the power source for your HVAC system. Sometimes it can be something as simple as a circuit break that flips, rendering your HVAC unit useless. This easy solution won’t cost you anything.
