Keeping the HVAC system in your Coral Gables, Florida, home running is an important part of maintaining your home’s comfort. Unfortunately, some homeowners tend to ignore minor problems with their HVAC system. If they’re left unaddressed, they can easily turn into larger ones. However, when you’re vigilant about possible issues with your HVAC, you can catch these problems early, reduce the risk of breakdown, and possibly the cost of expensive repairs. If you need any of the following HVAC repairs, don’t wait for them to get worse.
Frayed or Worn Belts
If you hear squealing coming from your HVAC system, you likely have an issue with one of the belts. Belts may need lubrication or become worn or broken as the system operates. While this may not seem like a major issue at first, if the belt breaks or stops working, it can lead to damage to other components of your systems.
As your system runs, it’s easy for bearings to become loose or dislodged and move throughout the system. This problem is often easy to identify because you will hear clanging and clinking noises coming from the inside of your system. While this sound does not always mean loose bearings, it most often means that there is something loose that is moving around the system. The longer a loose part is moving around the system, the more damage it can cause, so it’s vital to get it fixed immediately.
A system that’s running constantly isn’t only annoying and inefficient, but it’s also causing significant wear and tear on your system. Furnaces may run constantly because of airflow problems, thermostat problems, or even problems with your furnace keeping up with the space it needs to heat.
