No matter what time of year it is, you want a reliable HVAC system to keep your home comfortable. However, many problems can arise with your HVAC system over time, especially if you don’t keep up with routine maintenance. If you’ve noticed some components of your HVAC system in your Sarasota, Florida, home acting inefficiently, a bum thermostat, an old unit, or dirty equipment might be possible causes.
A Faulty Thermostat
In older homes, the thermostat is often a source of a faulty HVAC system. Over time, these units wear down, especially outdated analog versions. To keep your home at the right temperature, consider updating your system with a digital smart thermostat. Not only are these thermostats more accurate, but many are also Wi-Fi compatible, allowing you to change the temperature anywhere with an internet connection. With such versatility, there’s no reason not to consider this rather inexpensive fix.
Old HVAC Units
Another concern for inefficiencies is an old HVAC system, especially if you’ve added on to your home. This adds extra square footage, making the old unit too small to handle the workload. While you can always add window air conditioning units to solve the problem, a new, Energy Star system is the better choice. If you opt for a new central unit, contact us to provide an estimate and expert installation.
Dirty Evaporator or Condenser
Without getting too deeply into HVAC specifics, your air conditioner has two basic parts: the evaporator and the condenser. To operate effectively, these units need to remain clear of dirt and debris, yet many people don’t clean either unit regularly. This causes the system to work overtime to provide the temperature you’ve set on your thermostat. Each spring and fall, you should clean the condenser and evaporator. If you don’t feel comfortable, call us to conduct a thorough cleansing.
