Balancing My HVAC System

A few months ago, I realized that something was wrong with my HVAC system. It seemed like no matter what I did, some rooms were hot and some rooms were simply getting too much cooled air. Instead of trying to troubleshoot my air conditioner on my own, I called out a professional HVAC repairman for help. They went through each room of my house when the system was running to measure the outgoing airflow and to check for issues. They discovered some serious balance problems, which they resolved after running a few extra lines. Check out this blog to learn more about HVAC in general.

Don't Let These HVAC Myths Fool You

Your HVAC system helps to regulate the temperature inside of your business. It keeps your business warm during those cold winter days and cool during the hot summer days. If something in the system stops working properly, your system won't be able to maintain the proper temperature. Unfortunately, many people don't understand a lot of the specifics of these systems. To better understand your HVAC system, don't fall prey to one of these common myths.

A rusty coil means you have a leak

Oftentimes, people assume that if their coil is rusted, they must have a leak somewhere in the system. While this might be the case, that isn't exactly accurate. Coils rust whenever there is an excessive amount of ice or water built up on your coils over the course of time. There are other reasons beyond leaks as to why ice can build up on your coils. Air flow could end up causing a major impact on whether the coils are going to freeze or not. Poor design, crushed ductwork and even a dirty filter can all prevent your system from getting an adequate supply of warm air. Without enough warm air, the coil will freeze. Changing the filter and having your unit maintained on a regular basis can prevent this from happening.

Capacitors that aren't swollen must be fine

Just because the capacitor in your system isn't swollen, that doesn't mean it is okay. Capacitors can be weak, without actually being shot all the way. Weak capacitors can end up causing more problems than ones that are shot. With a dead capacitor, you won't be able to turn the motor on. Weak capacitors let your motor continue running in poor operating conditions, shortening the lifespan of the motor. Replacing the motor is more expensive than it is to service the capacitor.

Units don't have to be maintained

Many people are under the assumption that you don't need to worry about maintaining your HVAC system until something goes out on it. That isn't the case. There are a number of underlying dangers that could be lurking inside of your system. With routine maintenance and inspections, you can identify those problem areas quickly and get to work on taking care of them before they spiral out of control.

Just because you hear something, that doesn't always mean it is the truth. You are better off discussing your questions and concerns with a licensed HVAC repair specialist {like those at HVAC & R Solution} than you are trying to handle things on your own.
