Common HVAC Problems
For years, the homeowners and business owners of Austin, TX, have called on Schneider Mechanical to fix a plethora of their HVAC issues. No company can say they’ve seen it all because new problems can arise at any time. We can say, however, that we’ve been in this field for a long time and have a great deal of experience. These are the most common signs to be aware of that you may need HVAC maintenance services in Austin, TX:
Have you noticed a fluctuating temperature in your home or business? A broken system may make your home or business hot one minute and cold the next. This could be due to a variety of factors, but it’s critical to get it looked at as soon as possible before the situation worsens.
Fluctuating temperatures can be dangerous, potentially, depending on the season. Texas isn’t unfamiliar with extreme weather. You’ll want your cooling system functioning properly during the summer and your heating system keeping you toasty during the winter.
Too Much Humidity
If a building is too humid, it becomes a hotbed for mold. Mold grows on wet surfaces and in areas where there’s a lot of moisture. If mold starts growing, you may experience sudden fatigue, headaches, runny eyes, and frequent coughing. The presence of mold is especially concerning if someone has asthma.
Your HVAC system, if working properly, should be preventing humidity in your home as it produces dry air. If you’re experiencing mold growth, your system may be leaking or accumulating moisture.
Water leaks (from air conditioning), gas leaks (from a furnace), and refrigerant leaks are all possibilities depending on what kind of HVAC system you have. Either way, a leak is a significant issue and should be dealt with quickly. Gas leaks can lead to headaches, nausea, fainting, and even fires. Water leaks can lead to damage to walls, ceilings, floors, or other property, leading to mold.
In general, leaking from any unit can be potentially dangerous and should not be put off. Contact Schneider Mechanical right away if you notice your HVAC system is leaking.
Causes Of HVAC Problems
No matter the cause, we enlist some of the best HVAC technicians in Austin to conduct outstanding HVAC maintenance services at your residence. For your convenience, we’ve also included the usual causes of problems you’re having with your heating or cooling unit.
Any system will malfunction if it is installed poorly. A bad installation can happen if:
• The previous contractors didn’t take note of certain factors, such as walling material.
• The previous contractors forgot to include some of the unit’s components.
• The previous contractors forgot to attach or connect wires or important components.
The HVAC system you want to have installed needs to be compatible with your home’s construction. Certain aspects of your home, such as insulation, flooring, and the location of the installation, matter when installing an HVAC system. If they are not placed with careful consideration, they can be rendered ineffective or dangerous, limiting their lifespan.
Components Need Oiling
Similar to components in your vehicle, your HVAC systems need regular maintenance, such as oiling. The gears inside your HVAC system may need to be oiled annually to make them effective and efficient. Otherwise, your system may not work as well or could break down.
Components Need Cleaning
HVAC systems have numerous components inside. Evaporator coils, compressors, and fans are common parts of different cooling and heating units. The components of your particular system need to be cleaned every so often because a buildup of debris occurs over time, which can be unhealthy for both you and the unit. Thus, we suggest requesting an annual cleaning.
When you lose power to your building, this could cause a fuse to blow in your unit. Usually, this is fixable but can require a replacement if it causes too much damage to older units.
Natural Wear And Tear
Unfortunately, all heating and cooling units will experience natural wear and tear. This happens over the course of several years, even with proper care. This could result from several factors, such as inevitable decay that occurs when a system is constantly running, debris settling in, the motors drying out, and damage from dings and nicks.
The majority of HVAC systems have a lifespan of 10 to 15 years. Some units even last up to 30 years when kept up perfectly. Nonetheless, there will come a time when your system is past its prime and needs to be replaced. When that happens, call Schneider Mechanical.
