Most likely HVAC system problems
As the season turns to fall and the nights become cooler, it may be the perfect time to fire up your furnace. You may not “need” the furnace to work just yet, but that’s even better reason to test your system before it gets too cold. After all, the last thing you want is to wait until the last possible minute to start your furnace and have it not work. Here are a few of the most common HVAC service calls in the fall:
Moisture damage from your air conditioning
If you neglect maintenance on your air conditioning drain system it can get dirty and clog resulting in water leaking on your furnace or on the electrical controls. This can result in your furnace failing you when you need it most.
Frequently, homeowners will call in the fall to make sure their system is working properly. In many cases, homeowners will mention their furnace wasn’t working well during the previous winter and ask to have their HVAC system inspected. These are sometimes air flow issues that can result in a system cleaning that can go above and beyond a standard tune-up.
Igniters that don’t ignite
Over time, system igniters can wear down, crack or break resulting in a system that won’t start. If the system won’t ignite, guess what? Yep, better call for service and grab a blanket!
Inducer motor failure
The inducer motor is a critical component that comes into play when your furnace is called for heat. If this component is not working, your furnace will not begin operation. Often, an inducer motor that is on its last leg may sit idle all summer and then is unable to perform when it’s called upon to work in the fall.
While HVAC systems are much more sophisticated today than they were 20-years ago, they are still mechanical pieces of equipment that need ongoing maintenance and professional care. If you find you’re heating and cooling systems are not performing in a manner that they provide maximum comfort, ask a professional for advice. Chances are, the solutions to your problems are minor and it’s always better to address these issues early on, before they become problematic.
