Common HVAC Problems

Let’s explore just a few of the most common HVAC systems you may encounter:

Inconsistent Heating or Cooling

An HVAC system should cool or heat your entire home, but sometimes you may find that some rooms are colder or warmer than others. While your unit could be malfunctioning, it’s more likely that your ductwork is blocked or cracks and holes in your walls, ceilings, and floors are allowing air to escape and enter your home. At Gold Star Services, our technicians will inspect your ductwork, vents, and rooms. We will take thorough steps to ensure you can enjoy more consistent temperature control.

Ice Buildup

During the colder months, certain HVAC systems – such as heat pumps – can freeze over. Not only will this tank your unit’s efficiency, but prolonged exposure to ice can also damage your heat pump’s components. Most modern heat pumps are equipped with a defrost setting. When activated, this should melt any ice covering to the unit.

Clogged Air Filters

Air filters help protect your HVAC system’s internal machinery from dust and debris. However, if you do not replace your filters regularly, they can become clogged, inhibiting airflow to your system. The result: reduced efficiency and increased running costs. Depending on use, most air filters should be replaced approximately every 90 days. At Gold Star Services, we will give you a comprehensive maintenance plan detailing how to optimize the lifespan of your heating or cooling equipment.
