Preventing Heating & Air Conditioning Repair

HVAC Repair | Heating and Air Conditioning

From power surges to dirty filters there are numerous factors that can result in a home’s heating and air conditioning system requiring repair. However, some causes are more common than others, and of these, some are preventable, while others are not. In the following we will discuss the four most common issues that result in the need for heating and air conditioning repair in Plano, TX. Contact Cypress Heating and Air Conditioning for your HVAC Repair and installation needs.

Lack of Maintenance

You have invested your money in the most energy efficient heating and air conditioning system possible for your home. It stands to reason that you want to provide the care the system requires to extend its service life. Periodic maintenance is essential to maximize the HVAC systems service life, while maintaining peak performance and the energy efficiency that you selected it for. Neglecting to provide professional and routine maintenance will result in an increased frequency of breakdowns, increased energy cost, poor performance and the premature demise of the unit.

Dirty Filters

Replacing the filter in your furnace as recommended is one of the most important things you can do to extend the life and efficiency of your furnace. Economical blue filters should be changed each month while pleated filters recommend changing every three months. However, homeowners should realize that increased dusty conditions can result in the need for more frequent filter changes. A good rule of thumb is to check the filter each month and change as required.

A dirty filter will restrict the air flow, causing the system to work harder to pull air through the filter and into the circulation through your home. This puts unnecessary strain on the furnace and results in premature wear and tear on the system, as well as the risk of damage or fire due to overheated components.

Mechanical Wear

The furnace contains numerous components that collectively provide the heating that you depend upon for your home. Wear and tear on any one of these components may cause issues with the performance of the heating and air conditioning system. Over time wear and tear will occur as the system ages, even with proper care. However, this wear can be reduced, and the system’s service life extended when proper care is received.

Thermostat Malfunctions

The thermostat is the separate component of the HVAC system that controls and determines when the system operates to produce heat, and when it shuts off. As with any other mechanical device, the thermostat will eventually wear out and require replacement. Problems with the thermostat can result in no heat, too much heat, insufficient heat or the failure of the fan to operate. If you find yourself making numerous trips to the thermostat to turn the heat up or down, it is likely the thermostat needs to be replaced.
