Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems have been present in this area for many, many years now. Here in Santa Ana, they are mainly used to deal with the heat. We don’t really need them as much in the winter. The reason why we bring this up is that the type of usage that you give the system is actually going to determine what its most common issues are going to be. Here are some of the more common issues that we see with these systems and how we are actually able to fix them!
General Obstruction Of The System
Your HVAC system is going to be pretty much composed of air vents that are going to have either cold or hot air running through them. There are a lot of different things that could get picked up in the air and sucked into these air vents. When this happens you are not going to have a natural flowing system. That is why cleaning and maintenance of these particular parts of your HVAC system are so important. Even though some people want to say that there is proven evidence that cleaning these areas is actually going to do anything.
I Have A Heating Issue
The simplest way to spot any issue with these systems is to just try and use either the heat or the AC and find out whether or not you are getting cold or hot air. If you are on the fence over whether you have an issue or not, a great way to test is to put your thermostat to really hot or really cold temperatures. That is usually a quick way to test the effectiveness of the system. When you have a heating issue the first thing that we would need to know is what type of heater the system actually has. To then try and offer up a solution.
Can Putting The System To Work On A Very Cold or Hot Temperature Damage It?
For years there has been this narrative that if you had the system running on a very cold temperature for an extended period of time your air vents would freeze. That is not necessarily an accurate statement. Systems have a max and minimum temperature that they should be able to run at fine. As with any other machine though, if you run it at full capacity continuously, of course, there is a better chance that it is going to breakdown. Especially if we are talking about an older HVAC system.
If You Replaced My HVAC System Would You Need To Remove My Existing Air Vents?
Another one of the fears that people have is that if we see ourselves in the need to replace their HVAC system we are essentially going to be wrecking their whole home to install new air vents. This is not forcefully the case. Sometimes only parts of the system will need to be replaced. If you want to do a major overhaul though, we can certainly make that happen!
