AC Troubleshooting Tips
It’s that time of year when AC issues can be frustrating as the weather begins to get warmer. While HVAC companies like RSP can help get your system back on track, there are some simple troubleshooting steps that you can take to figure out what is going on.
Check your air filter. Irregularities in your HVAC system may be the result of an air filter that is dirty or clogged. It is important to regularly change your air filters to ensure that your air quality is not negatively affected.
Take a look at your breakers. Sometimes, power switches and breakers can be accidentally turned off, especially as appliances are being installed or other home improvements are being made. So before you call up your HVAC professionals, check those circuit breakers to ensure the issue isn’t something that could be fixed with the flip of a switch.
Check out those vents. Vents are a huge part of your HVAC system. A faulty vent impacts your air flow and causes it to be irregular. Take a look at your vents and see if you can spot any blockage that is causing problems for your system.
Look over your outdoor unit. Debris such as sticks, leaves, or large branches can prevent your system from working properly and harm the airflow. However, this is a simple fix as many units can be sprayed down and cleaned with a hose as long as the power is shut off.
Be careful doing yard work. Prevent problems before they start by being careful as you do yard maintenance activities such as clearing weeds with a weed whacker. Being careful when working around your unit helps to avoid clipped wires.
