Avoiding Emergency HVAC Repairs

We suggest changing the filter is probably the best thing that a homeowner can do. A clogged filter makes the unit run longer, putting more stress on the equipment, causing it to breakdown. Also, you waste a lot of money needlessly.

Some heating and cooling problems are unavoidable.We often repair A/C units that stopped working when its capacitor broke. These often suffer heat damage from the extreme weather.

The homeowner made matters worse when he tried to turn on the A/C anyway and caused the compressor to overheat.

A capacitor could take a couple hours for it to cool off, so try running water over it cool it off.

In most cases, a simple filter change and getting a tune up, something most commercial property managers and home owners have not done in years, would have kept the A/C running through the night.

From now on, have a check up every year. It pays for itself.

Also, one of the biggest mistakes homeowners make is closing vents in some rooms to direct cool air to other rooms. He said A/C units are not meant to operate that way and backing up the air can actually damage some A/C parts.
