Premature hvac system failure is often caused by issues related with air.
Some of the most common causes of:
- HVAC blower motor failure
- HVAC systems freezing up
- AC not working
- AC smells
- Heater blowing cold, to name a few.
Poor air circulation can be caused by :
- Undersized ductwork
- Leaky air ducts
- Dirty Evaporator Coil
- Dirty Blower Wheel
- Faulty Blower Motor
- Poor duct sealing
When was the last time your ductwork was inspected? As HVAC repair companies, ee often see a brand new air conditioning installation with the old existing duct insulation falling apart. This allows for heat loss/gain depending on the season, causing your hvac system to run longer just to keep up.
New systems, most of the times, are configured to push more air than older systems, but this can’t happen due to undersized or restricted ductwork, smaller vents, and other factors.
A dirty blower wheel moves less air, causing your motor to run longer, reducing its life, and eventually start overheating until it fails completely.
