A damaged HVAC system could be extremely infuriating. But do you know what’s more irritating? It is finding out that you could have resolved that issue by yourself after you have already called for professional assistance.
Sometimes, your HVAC equipment breaks down due to some trivial faults. These faults need no professional attention and can easily be fixed by you.
As contractors with experience in offering heating services in Yuma, AZ, we have observed such situations several times before. The instances when our professionals reached the scene only to find out simple fixes to trivial technical breakdowns. So, we decided to outline some areas to check before you call us for help.
Check Your Air Filter
Whenever you notice slight variations in the furnace temperatures or inhibited airflow, it is advisable to check your air filter. Every HVAC breakdown story begins with a damaged air filter. So, we strongly recommend you check them up as soon as you feel some glitches with the working of your HVAC equipment.
If you witness the following issues with your HVAC appliances, it’s time to change your filter because it certainly has crossed its lifetime. The issues include:
- Clogged air pipes
- Obstructed airflow
- Short cycling of the heater
Note: As an expert in the field, we suggest changing the filter every month or two for better functioning.
Analyze Your Thermostat
Thermostat checking might seem like a useless solution but try to recheck the inspection process with us. Here, repeat after us, and if you missed something, go ahead and follow that tip.
- Automated settings of the thermostat could have been fiddled with. So, reset the settings back to normal mode.
- The mode setting switch could have accidentally been turned over to cooling mode.
- There are times when thermostat heating settings are set to ‘fan only’ mode. This means that your blower would not function, and hence you feel cold even after your HVAC is switched on.
- Also, it is possible that your thermostat batteries could have leaked and hence not working.
Reset Your Switches and Circuit Control Panels
It is possible that your entire HVAC system could shut down due to underlying circuitry problems. We suggest that you try to change your circuits or fuse to confirm whether the shutdown was due to a blown circuit or an actual HVAC problem.
Review Your Gas Bills
There are times when customers miss their gas bill payments, and therefore their gas services are discontinued. So, we advise you to review the bills and figure out if you have paid them or not.
However, there is one more way to ensure whether your gas services are shunned or not, that is, try other gas appliances. If they work, it means your bills are paid and you should call us, and if they don’t, well you know what to do.
So, if you have tried all these tips and one of them has worked out, your device is safe and sound. However, if none of these suggestions worked, we suggest you contact us at (928) 344-2632. Polar Cooling LLC is renowned for offering the best heating installation in Yuma, AZ.
