It’s inevitable. If a machine or a device has moving parts, at some point in time, one of those parts is going to fail.
Your HVAC system is no different. Yes, there are things you can do to help ensure your system is maintained, but even the best cared for pieces of heating and cooling equipment may experience a failure.
Below are just a few of the more common reasons that you may need to contact a furnace repairman in Loveland.
You’ve been neglecting your filters
If you’ve been following our blog you’ve likely noticed a common theme. Namely, we’ve written more than our fair share of posts about the importance of keeping your HVAC filters clean.
The filter does a very important job, in that it helps to remove dust, pet dander, bacteria, pollen, mold spores and spider webs from the air in your home.
Have you ever placed a box fan in a window? Have you ever taken a look at your screens after you’ve removed the fan? We’re guessing it looked a little gunky. If you didn’t clean your screen, the build up may eventually get so bad that your fan would need to work a lot harder to maintain its airflow.
The same is true for your HVAC air filter. If it’s dirty and clogged and you don’t replace it, your HVAC motor will need to work a lot harder. If this goes on for long enough, you could experience a system failure.
It’s more than 15 years old
Your HVAC isn’t going to last forever. Much like everything else, when your furnace begins to age, it’s going to be more prone to failure. It’s also worth noting that newer HVAC systems use the latest technologies, which makes them more energy efficient. If your current furnace is experiencing frequent breakdowns, or you’ve noticed some unusual increases in your monthly heating bill, it may be time to consider something new.
If you have questions about how old your system is, you can look that up quite easily with the unit’s serial number. If you have questions about how to do this, or if you need help determining where the serial number is, call Loveland HVAC Repair today an we’ll be happy to help.
You have one or more faulty wires
When your HVAC system has one or more faulty wires, you may have problems getting the unit to turn on and/or off. It may also trip your circuit breaker. Faulty wires are also a fire hazard, so they should be dealt with immediately.
