Common HVAC Problems In The Summer
There’s nothing worse than coming home from a long day’s work during the summer months and not feeling that cool breeze when you walk inside. When temperatures are in the upper 90’s and your AC unit is not working as it should, your home can quickly become very uncomfortable. 9-1-1 Comfort Air of Myrtle Beach is here to identify a few common HVAC problems that you may experience during the summer season.
The AC Unit Isn’t Cooling My Home
If you hear your AC running, but the temperature inside of your home continues to rise, something is obviously wrong. When your AC unit isn’t cooling your home, your vents may be closed, which blocks cool air from entering the rooms of your home. Another culprit could be a leak around the refrigerant lines of your unit.
My AC Won’t Turn On
Don’t freak out. You may be able to fix this yourself! If your air conditioner refuses to turn on, first check the thermostat. Keep in mind that your thermostat is programmed to activate the fan all of the time. If your AC unit is turned on for when the temperature is 78 degrees, but reads 77 for the time being, the fan will run, but your AC won’t start. If the AC still won’t turn on after adjusting the thermostat, check for a blown fuse. If all else fails, give us a call to come out and take a look.
HVAC units make certain sounds during operation that become white noise after a while. So if you begin to hear something our of the norm, turn off the unit immediately and call 9-1-1. We will be able to inspect the unit, identify the problem and do what we need to fix it.
Lack of Maintenance
It’s important to have your HVAC unit inspected once or twice per year. By doing so, a trained HVAC expert will be able to spot issues before they become a problem. Neglecting to do so can create costly repair bills and furthermore, higher electric bills.
