Homeowners often have a lot of questions about their home’s heating and cooling system, especially when something goes wrong. As many homeowners here in Southern Nevada depend on their home heating system to keep them warm during winter and cool during the summer, it is easy to say everyone wants a reliable HVAC system. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning would like to share some of the most common questions asked by homeowners and the answers or solutions.
Why is Dust Coming Out of Air Vents?
Why is my home dusty and the air dirty? A heating or cooling system should never be the cause of dust in the air and all over the home. However, it is unfortunately the case for many homeowners. When the home has dust in the air and covers the entire house, this is a common sign the HVAC system is dirty. Essentially, the air duct system as well as the heating and air conditioner needs to be cleaned and serviced. Additionally, the air filter may not have been changed as often as it should. As the air filter helps to prevent dirt from entering the heating and air conditioner, it is important that the air filters are changed out regularly. If you find you have a lot of dust in your home, and you can feel it in the air, it is recommended to have your HVAC system serviced and your air ducts cleaned to provide a fresh start.
Why is My Furnace or Air Conditioner Making a Loud Noise
Other than a light humming, the heating or air conditioner should never make any noises. When there is noise other than a slight humming, this can be a sign of a serious problem. Depending on the type of noise, it could point to different problems. A loud screeching and clanking noise indicates something broken and is bouncing around inside the HVAC system. A buzzing or clicking noise often points toward an electrical problem. When odd or loud noises occur, make sure to turn off the heating or cooling system and contact a professional HVAC technician to inspect the system and hopefully repair the problem quickly.
Why is My Central AC or Heat Not Working
When the heating or air conditioner fails to work the first common reason is the thermostat isn’t set correctly or turned on. The second most common reason is the breaker to the HVAC system has tripped. Often you simply need to go to the electrical panel and reset the breaker first. However, there could be other problem such as a refrigerant leak, a blown capacitor, damaged evaporator coils, or the safety switch has tripped. As the homeowner, before calling out an HVAC technician, first check the thermostat and the breakers. If that is not the problem, seek professional help to determine why the HVAC system isn’t working.
