This fall, you will likely rely on your air conditioning system to keep your house nice and warm. When you turn on your HVAC system for the first time, you may encounter some slight problems that may need to be addressed before the system can be ready for use. Depending on your HVAC system’s condition and age, these issues may vary from slight hitches to serious equipment failures that may need a comprehensive repair.
No Air Coming Out
When you turn on your HVAC system and no air is coming out, this could be an indication of a major blockage of the ductwork or even the air filter. After the long summer season, debris may have accumulated on the air filter, causing it to experience impaired airflow. Rodents may also have colonized the inside of the HVAC ductwork or even the vents and the registers. Checking these areas for potential problems will ensure that your system is back up and running as quickly as possible.
Furnace Not Working
Sometimes, you may experience a faulty furnace that makes your system produce only cold air. A furnace malfunction could be due to many things. Firstly, the thermostat may be malfunctioning, causing the furnace to fail to register the correct temperature. Another potential culprit could be the circuit breaker or even a blown fuse that needs to be replaced. In the case of combustion furnaces, a malfunctioning pilot light that has gone out could also be the problem.
A Leaking Furnace
The moment you turn on your HVAC system this fall and realize that the furnace is leaking, you should know that some of the pipes in the furnace are either blocked or leaking. After the hot and humid summer, humidity could have accumulated around these pipes, causing them to rust and lose their structural integrity. Another potential problem associated with a leaking furnace is a cracked or blocked condenser pipe that needs replacement.
