The 5 Most Common HVAC Problems

Your HVAC system is one of the most relied-upon systems in your home. You may not think about it much, but you’ll certainly notice if it fails, especially during a Florida summer! There are many reasons an HVAC system can fail. When you see the signs, it’s time to call in the professionals. Here are five of the most common HVAC problems that homeowners may encounter with their units: 

1. Lack of HVAC Maintenance

Just like your car engine, the many parts inside your HVAC system endure normal wear-and-tear and require regular maintenance. The last thing you want is to be in the midst of a Port St. Lucie summer and have your air conditioning fail unexpectedly. Have regular unit checks by a professional to ensure the parts all operate smoothly. 

2. Dirty Filter

Your HVAC filter is your first line of defense against outside pollutants and allergens. When your filter is too dirty, the unit will need to work harder to push air into your home.

This overwork will put even more strain on the furnace’s blower, as well as make it more challenging to keep your home cool and comfortable. If you notice new or worsening HVAC zoning problems, check your filter and replace it if necessary.

3. Circuit Breaker Tripped

If your HVAC unit isn’t getting sufficient electrical current, or if there’s an electrical surge,  this may cause a circuit breaker to trip and turn off the system. Some causes could include a dirty air filter or condenser coils, aging HVAC components, or even loose wiring. If your HVAC has an issue with tripping circuit breakers, reach out to one of our HVAC specialists for help. 

4. Uneven Room Temperatures

If you are noticing uneven temperatures in your home, it can be frustrating. Perhaps you have a room in your home that is always either too hot or too cold. Uneven room temperatures can be caused by a few different things, such as leaks in your ductwork, poorly installed insulation, thermostat issues, or even the distance the room is from your heating and cooling unit. 

5. Water Leaks

Your HVAC system creates condensation when it functions correctly. Drain pipes are installed inside these systems to drain this condensation away from sensitive components. Sometimes, however, furnaces will leak if these drains are broken or clogged.

If your HVAC system is leaking water, hire a service technician to have the issue adequately managed as soon as possible.
