Common HVAC Repairs You Need to Know About

Your heating and air conditioning system is essential for your comfort indoors throughout the year. When you need HVAC repairs, it can be stressful, overwhelming and potentially a financial nightmare. Investing in a preventative maintenance plan will reduce the number of HVAC repairs needed throughout the year on your HVAC system.

Below are the most common HVAC repairs and their causes. Call Douglas Cooling & Heating early if you notice something is wrong with your heating and air conditioning system. We will stop the problem before it escalates into a full-blown HVAC system failure.

Learn More About Your Heating and Cooling System

The most obvious sign your heating and air conditioning unit is malfunctioning is when your home isn’t the right temperature, or your energy bill is rising when the thermostat isn’t moving.

It’s hard to diagnose the problem on your own, which is why it’s best to call an HVAC professional as soon as you notice something wrong with your heating and cooling equipment. Call Douglas Cooling & Heating for:

Refrigerant Leaks

A common problem with air conditioners are refrigerant leaks. Your air conditioner system uses refrigerant to create the cool air flowing into your home. When the refrigerant is low or empty, your unit can’t function properly.

A sign that your refrigerant may be leaking is if your cooling system is blowing warm air, which can be a disaster in the summer. When a refrigerant leak isn’t dealt with immediately, it can cause the condenser to work harder, resulting in unnecessary wear and tear on your cooling system.

Schedule HVAC repairs with our NATE-certified technicians soon so we can fix the leak and get your cooling system operating efficiently for the summer.

Thermostat Issues

Your heating and cooling system depends on your thermostat to communicate accurate readings throughout the year. A malfunctioning thermostat forces the HVAC unit to operate more often to keep ideal temperatures in your home.

You can start by checking the batteries. If that’s not the issue, you will need to schedule a heating or air conditioning repair with a licensed professional. The sensor inside your thermostat might be broken, and our NATE-certified technicians are trained to repair your thermostat functions quickly.

Airflow Restrictions

Throughout the year, your heating and air conditioning system depends on adequate airflow to deliver ideal temperatures to every room in your house.

When dirt, dust and other debris accumulate inside your HVAC equipment and ductwork, it prevents your unit from operating efficiently and forces it to work harder. Dirty air filters are the most common reason for airflow restrictions. Furnace filters should be replaced every few months.

If a dirty air filter isn’t the problem, schedule professional duct cleaning services with Douglas Cooling & Heating. We will clean and remove any obstructions in your ducts so your heating and cooling system can operate smoothly year-round.

Electronic Control Failure

Over time, the compressor and fan controls wear out, leaving you with air conditioning problems. If you notice your HVAC unit cycles on and off frequently, call Douglas Cooling & Heating to schedule an HVAC repair.

It might be that your cooling system is too large or the terminals and wires are corroding. Either way, our licensed HVAC technicians will assess the situation and provide you with a solution to keep you comfortable in your home.
