HVAC stands for Heating, ventilating, and Air-Conditioning system. Most home these days are heated and cooled through these central, whole-home systems, which frequently require some level of maintenance and repair.
Central HVAC systems are often referred to as “split” systems because repairs may be needed both inside and outside your home. On the inside, the bulk of your HVAC system is likely to be installed in either the basement or attic and sometimes inside a closet you’ll find an oil, electic or gas furnance as well as the evaporator for your air conditioner. Nearby you will find a blower which is attached to air ducts that deliver air to various rooms in your home.
On the outside, you’ll find different components of your HVAC system, which often require additional repair and maintenance due to the outside elements. For starters, the air conditioner’s condenser unit is located outside the home. Similarly, if you have a heat pump that too is located outside. Both are mounted in a metal cabinet with a large fan.
Repairing an HVAC system is more complicated than performing regular maintenance. Following safety guidelines is particularly important when repairing these sytems. Always start by turning the unit off completely, ensure that all electrical flow is turned off, wear protective eyewear, proper clothing and closed toe shoes for every HVAC system repair.
When diagnosing an HVAC system problem, start by looking for obvious issues like air flow blockages, dirt buildup, or blown fuses which could result in an easy repair. Check to see if the system responds to turning up or down the thermostat.
If these initial inspections don’t fix your HVAC system problem, take a look at the owner’s manual or do a google search for your make and model of HVAC system, which may shed light on a potential repair. Sometimes, HVAC system repairs can be easily made by a homeowner, but don’t hesitate to call the professional HVAC systems repair technicians at Carter Services if you run into a problem that is a bit over your head or poses any type of risk to your safety.
