What are the Most Common Heating & AC Issues?

Your heating and cooling system is essential in maintaining a comfortable and pleasant indoor environment. From keeping you toasty during the winter months to keeping you cool during the sweltering summer months, these systems work extremely hard. But just like any other system, they are prone to wear and tear over time.

The experts at C&C have some of the most common issues homeowners encounter with their heating and air conditioning systems and the proper solutions. 

Clogged Air Filters 

If you have experienced a clogged air filter, you are not alone. Clogged air filters can impede airflow, reduce system efficiency, and can even lead to complete system breakdowns. Regularly changing your air filters every three months improves indoor air quality and prevents unnecessary strain on your system. 

Refrigerant Leaks

Low refrigerant levels can drastically compromise your air conditioning unit’s cooling capacity. Leaks can occur due to corrosion, poor installation, or manufacturing defects. If you suspect having a refrigerant leak, do not attempt to take care of it yourself. Call a certified AC repair technician to handle it, someone who can adequately locate the leaks, seal them, and recharge the system to optimal levels. 

Thermostat Issues 

Often, homeowners don’t think about their thermostats until something goes wrong. A malfunctioning thermostat can cause temperature irregularities, making your home too hot or cold. If you suspect your thermostat isn’t correctly calibrated, you may want to consider upgrading to a smart thermostat for greater efficiency and comfort control.

Electrical Component Failures

Heating and AC systems are incredibly complex, which means that there are many electrical components that can fail. Faulty electrical components such as capacitors and relays can disrupt the proper functioning of your system. This is where the importance of regular maintenance comes in. These appointments can help identify and address these issues before they cause major breakdowns. 

It is extremely wise to have regular inspections of your New Jersey home’s heating & air conditioning system and promptly take care of any issues.
