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.

Common Furnace Issues And When To Call For Help

As it gets cold outside, your furnace is going to be put to work keeping your house warm. Furnace maintenance should be done at the beginning of the season to prepare your heating system to be on daily. Strange smells or a home that won't heat up properly are indications that your furnace needs to be checked for problems. Your heating system may only need to be cleaned, or you may have a furnace that is starting to fail. Residential HVAC services will come to your home and inspect your entire heating system. If repairs are needed, a technician will talk to you about the work that needs to be done to keep your heat on.

If You Have an Odor

If you just turned on your furnace after a few months of warm weather, you might notice an odor in the beginning. If the odor doesn't go away, there could be a problem with your furnace. If you smell fuel out of nowhere or if your furnace begins to have an odor for no apparent reason, it's time to have your furnace inspected to see what is going on.

If Your Furnace Struggles to Start

Your furnace will have more difficulty turning on and off as it gets older. You might hear a clicking noise or a slight pop when the furnace turns on. If too much fuel accumulates before the ignitor works, you'll hear the sound of the built up fuel exploding. There could be trouble with the wiring, or you may need a new thermostat if your furnace doesn't start easily.

If Your Home Doesn't Warm Up

When you turn up your heat and your home doesn't get warm enough, the issue could be a thermostat or a leak in your ductwork. If your home doesn't heat up no matter what the thermostat is set at, you'll need heating system repair services to come to the home and see what the problem is.

If When Your Furnace Is Old

A furnace can last about 15 to 20 years. If your furnace is beyond this age, it is likely more cost-effective to replace your furnace than it is to repair it. Talk to your residential HVAC services about your options when you have an older furnace that is no longer successful at keeping you warm. You may discover a more energy efficient furnace and be able to spend less money on energy costs every month.
