Anyone who has an HVAC system knows that they need regular maintenance on their systems to continue operating correctly. When they aren’t working, there could be several reasons why. Some of these reasons are simple fixes that any homeowner can take care of themselves. The obvious thing to check first is that there is power running to the unit. If everything is plugged in, turned on, and there are no fuses blown or breakers tripped, the problem lies elsewhere.
If there are no issues with the power, the next thing to check is the thermostat settings. The fan switch should be set to “Auto” or “On”, and the system must be either on “Heat” or “Cool”, depending on the time of year. If it is summertime and air conditioning is needed, the thermostat should be set lower than the room temperature for it to work. During the colder winter months, the thermostat must be set higher than the room temperature before the heat will kick in. If there is still no heat, it may be time to call in the experts in HVAC repair in Santa Rosa.
If the thermostat is programmable, it could be that incorrect settings have been entered, and it is simply a matter of changing it to the correct setting. The next thing to check is the natural gas line if it is a gas furnace. When the gas valve is open, the handle is supposed to be parallel to the pipe. Airflow is something else to check on. Make sure that supply and return grates are not blocked because this can cause rooms to become too hot or too cold. Also, check the air filter, and if it is dirty, replace it, or if it is a permanent model, clean it.
Once troubleshooting has been done, and if the system is still not working correctly, it is time to go to the professional technicians in HVAC repair in Santa Rosa to diagnose and repair the problem.
