5 HVAC Troubleshooting Tips Every Homeowner Should Know

If your HVAC system is acting up, then you know it’s time for action. However, how do you know whether you can solve the problem yourself or whether you should call a professional? That’s why we at Newark-Heath Heating & Cooling put together some tips that can help you determine what your next step should be:

  1. If It’s Electrical, Leave It Alone

If you suspect that the problem is electrical, or if you’re hearing unusual noises coming from your HVAC system, it’s best to call a professional and allow them to handle the problem.

  1. Poor Air Quality?

If you’ve noticed that your home’s air quality is poor, then your first step should be to check your air filter. If you can’t see the filter material underneath the dust and dirt, then you should definitely replace it. 

  1. Not Your Air Filter?

If you’re still noticing problems with your air quality after you replace your filter, then you should consider cleaning the evaporator and condenser coils. However, this should be done carefully and it’s important to research the process before attempting to clean them. 

  1. Problems That Persist 

If your HVAC problems persist, or if they are getting worse, then you should call a maintenance company right away. The longer a problem lasts the worse it can get, so it’s important to address issues quickly. 

  1. Don’t Mess With Something If You Don’t Know What It Is

If you are the family handyman, it can be tempting to try and work on the electrical components of your HVAC system yourself. However, if you have any doubts as to what you’re doing, you should consult a licensed professional. Any mistakes made on your part could cost you more money or damage your system even more.
