Common HVAC Repairs

The Outdoor Unit Isn’t Doing Anything

Check to make sure that the circuit breaker isn’t tripped. Turn the breaker off and then on again to reset it.

If that doesn’t work, see if the condensate pump is unplugged. Sometimes homeowners or residents mistakenly unplug it and forget to put it back in.

The System Sounds Like It’s Struggling

When was the last time you checked your air filter? Take a look and see if it’s dirty. Depending on your system, the air filter needs to be cleaned or changed regularly. Here’s an article about the importance of changing your HVAC filters.

There’s No Air Coming Through the Vents

Take a look at the drain lines. There may be a pan for water under the unit in an attic and if that has filled, the system will shut down.

If that’s dry, double-check that the power switch for your furnace isn’t flipped off. This would also affect your air conditioning.
