Having Air Conditioner or Heating System Troubles? Here’s What to Do

If your air conditioner or heater isn’t working right, your first instinct may be to worry and then call for repairs. This is a natural reaction but if are able to keep your cool, you may remember to troubleshoot your system and see if the problem can be easily solved. In many cases, it’s a simple mistake or user error that creates what seems like a major HVAC problem at first glance.

With some easy troubleshooting steps, most homeowners can correct minor issues that impact the function of AC and heater units. When you have a problem with how your air conditioner, heat pump, boiler, or furnace runs, try these tips before you call us for heating or air conditioning service.

Check the Thermostat

The thermostat is the part of the HVAC system that communicates indoor temperature to the heating and cooling system, telling it when to add or remove heat for better comfort. Issues impacting this equipment can affect the function of the entire heating and air conditioning unit.

  • Check power – replace batteries if needed, make sure breaker isn’t tripped for a hardwired device.
  • Check settings – make sure the thermostat is set to HEAT mode for heating and COOL mode for cooling.
  • Check fan settings – is the system fan set to ON or AUTO? You want to choose AUTO so the fan only runs while the heat or cooling cycles do. If you choose ON, the fan could be blowing lukewarm or cold air that’s settled in the ducts in between cycles.
  • Check temperature settings – to trigger heat, turn the temperature up a few degrees from the current reading. For cooling, turn the temperature down a few degrees from the current setting.

Check Power Sources

If one or more units of the HVAC system don’t have power, it could disrupt the entire system from working correctly.

  • Verify power to the thermostat, checking batteries or the breaker for hardwired equipment.
  • Verify electricity to indoor and outdoor units at the electrical panel, resetting any tripped breakers.
  • Verify power at the ON/OFF switch on or next to each unit.

Decode Error Codes

If your furnace or air conditioner is relatively new, it may have a component that delivers an error code if there is something wrong with the system. This code tells you exactly what the problem is. Access the indoor unit by removing the panel and check inside for a part with a flashing light. Watch how many times the light flashes before a longer period of pause. Your owner’s manual should have a list of flash codes where you can match up the number of flashes you saw to uncover the issue with your unit. From there, determine if it is something you can fix or if you’re better off calling for HVAC repair services.

Is There a Sign that Says I Need HVAC Repair?

It’s possible for a heater or AC unit to avoid repairs for many years with regular maintenance. Even with the best care, service issues do pop up, but they aren’t always easy to spot. Your HVAC system may have a fault in need of repair service even though it still runs – you won’t be able to see but in the background, this service issue is causing a decline in efficiency while damaging the system under your nose.

If you go too long without scheduling repair services for an HVAC issue, the problem can worsen, creating the need to completely replace different components or move forward with new installation replacing your older system. Avoid this problem and the high cost that comes with it when you know each sign that says your HVAC system needs repair service attention.

1. Excess Operating Noise

Typically, the noise from your HVAC system running should be minimal, like background noise. When it becomes loud or new noises start suddenly, it’s a sign you need to be repairing your system soon. Sounds like squeaking, screaming, banging, rattling, grinding, squealing, and other unusual noises say servicing is needed now.

2. Higher Energy Cost

If your energy bills increase without a clear explanation and cost a lot more than usual, often times it’s a sign the HVAC system is to blame. Faults and repair service issues can cause the system to run less efficiently, meaning the unit has to use more energy than it should to finish its tasks. Repair service can replace failing parts causing a lack of efficiency, installing new components that function with the high efficiency you need. If the mechanical safety and performance of your HVAC system is sound, you may want to take on other home improvement projects that can boost your system’s efficiency and help you save. These could include:

  • Sealing leaks in ducts
  • Insulating ducts
  • Adding insulation to the ventilation system and areas of the house

3. Quick Cycles

HVAC system cycles shouldn’t be short. A heating cycle lasts 10 to 15 minutes on average and an AC unit runs 15 to 20 minutes at a time. If the outdoor temperatures are extreme, expect these cycles to last longer. If cycles run short, half the average time or less, it’s a sign of a serious issue known as short cycling.

Short cycling can be extremely damaging to your HVAC investment. If this problem is allowed to continue, you may be looking at installing a new unit or the need to replace major system components.
