When working with HVAC systems, we at Newark-Heath Heating & Cooling have seen every problem out there. Sometimes, it can be difficult for new homeowners or residents with little HVAC experience to locate and address a problem. That’s why we put together the top 2 reasons why your furnace may have broken down. By learning more about your heating and cooling system, you can become more aware of when it requires professional attention, or when you can perform a once over and some simple cleaning yourself.
- Overdue Maintenance
If you haven’t given your HVAC system any attention in a while, then it’s smart to make sure the area around the system is clean. Remember to check your outdoor unit too as it’s important to keep at least a two foot radius around your indoor and outdoor units. Clear away any boxes, bushes, or sticks and leaves, giving your system room to breathe. You can also check your furnace filter if you haven’t replaced it in over a month. We recommend that filters be replaced every month and checked every few weeks, especially in winter.
- Noticeable Wear and Tear
Even if your heating and cooling system doesn’t have any seriously noticeable problems, sometimes things like air duct tears or bends, dirty vents, or strange noises can signal a bigger problem. If you are experiencing problems with your heating system, and you notice any of these symptoms, call or consult a professional to set up a maintenance check. By catching problems early and repairing old or damaged parts, you can save yourself a lot of money in the long run.
