Thermostat

Your thermostat controls your HVAC unit. Before troubleshooting, double check that your thermostat is on all of the correct settings. Many thermostats are programmable, and you never know if one of the settings has been changed throwing the unit out of whack.

Filter

Your air filter is responsible for filtering out impurities in the air, helping air to circulate better and your home to cool down quicker. Regular filter changes are crucial to keeping your system running properly. In fact, most issues with air conditioning units can easily be solved by simply replacing the air filter. Air filters should be changed monthly. 

Ignition

If your HVAC unit is slow to start, it may be the result of an ignition problem. Pilot lights, ignitors, and other electrical components can all contribute to ignition issues. In this case, call a professional to tackle the problem.

Wear and Tear

Like any appliance, your HVAC unit will suffer from wear and tear. Routine maintenance and regularly changing the air filter can help extend its life. If you have any problems with your unit, call in a professional immediately. This will prevent the unit from suffering from excess damage as it continues to try to run. 

Uneven Cooling

If your home’s temperature seems to fluctuate without, you may be quick to blame your HVAC unit. However, this is typically a sealing issue, meaning that somewhere in your home is allowing cold air to escape. Check the seals around your windows and doors to ensure that no cool air is escaping.

Routine maintenance can help ensure that your HVAC unit is running properly. All Temp, who has over 20 years of experience serving the St. Cloud area, can help with both maintenance, repairs, and installation. Learn more about our services by giving us a call at (407) 857-7800.
