It is the middle of the summer, and your property is not cooling down. There is little air coming through the vents, or maybe your system isn’t turning on at all. Don’t panic and feel as if you are going to have to spend a lot of money for the new HVAC system. There are several minor conditions that can occur, that are totally fixable. First, check your air conditioning filter. A clogged or dirty filter can cause your air conditioner to operate terribly. Your filter should be cleaned or replaced monthly during the cooling season. It is best to call an HVAC technician to check on your drains. A clogged drain should be cleaned at the earliest opportunity, as it will affect the system’s function, and may even cause water damage to your house. If your filter and the drains are fine, check the refrigerant level. This will have to be fixed by an HVAC professional, who will repair the leak and recharge your system. Sometimes, there is a problem with the thermostat. If it is set for 65 degrees, but your property is still warm, try resetting this thermostat. You can also try replacing the batteries. If your thermostat continues to not working, you will really need an HVAC technician determine what is wrong. Having your ductwork cleaned regularly will also help with keeping your system running efficiently. Regular maintenance of your HVAC system will help to alleviate any of these complications, and fix any issues before they arise. You will be assured that you and your family will be cool and pleasant all summer long.
