Your heating and air conditioning systems can sometimes go on the fritz. There are things you can take care of yourself rather than call a professional for. Here are some troubleshooting tips for when your HVAC system starts to act up.

Low Air Flow and HVAC Working Overtime

You may notice that the flow of air from your furnace or air conditioner has dropped. You may also see that your furnace or AC unit is operating far more often than usual. Both of these conditions are a sign that a filter hasn’t been replaced lately.
Furnaces and AC units have furnaces that keep dust, dirt, and pollutants out of the air. Depending on the size of the filter, it needs to be replaced every month to every three months. A clogged filter leads to the filter or AC unit working overtime in an attempt to push air through it.

Check Circuit Breakers

If your HVAC equipment doesn’t turn on, you should check your circuit breaker. The problem might just be that the fuse in your circuit breaker has tripped. If the fuse doesn’t stay on, then it’s broken and needs to be replaced. Hi-Tech Air Heating & Cooling is based in Lakeside, California. We help customers with all of their HVAC needs, such as replacing fuses.

Check Your Thermostat

Sometimes the problem is as easy as thermostat settings have been changed. If you have a programmable thermostat, it should be set to “cool” in the summer and “heat” in the winter so your HVAC system operates correctly. Make sure the fan is set to “auto” so it only operates when your HVAC system is heating or cooling the air.
