3 Common HVAC Problems in the Spring and How to Fix Them

3 Common HVAC Problems in the Spring and How to Fix Them

Is your heating and air conditioning equipment ready for spring?

Heating and air conditioning equipment can have problems when it hasn’t been used for a while. Consider the following problems and learn how to prevent them. You’ll be surprised at how easy it is to ensure your unit stays reliable all year round when you know how to best care for your HVAC.

The three most common spring HVAC problems include:

  1. Tripped Breakers: You try to turn your AC on for that first 80 degree day. Instead of being flooded with sweet relief, you’re filled with dread as the system doesn’t start running. Before you let the fear of spending a Carolina summer without air conditioning settle in, check your breakers and fuses. It’s very common for HVAC problems to be caused by basic electrical issues.
  2. Dirty Condenser Coils: AC condensers are usually found outdoors. They’re typically covered during winter to prevent corrosion and dirt and debris from clogging up coils. If they do get clogged, your AC may run, but it won’t cool your home. It also uses a lot of energy and can lead to bigger more expensive problems if left ignored.
  3. Contractor Failures: This simple switch regulates how the inside and outside components of your AC work, and there are several reasons they might fail. It’s a common problem in spring because of ants. As weather cools, they’re attracted to the warmth of the electricity, and the little bugs have been known to clog them up enough to keep them open. This prevents the outdoor unit from running and your home from being comfortable.
