Common Summer HVAC Problems

Having an HVAC system during the hot summer months can feel like a godsend. It's what keeps your family healthy, comfortable, and sane while it's working. However, there are some common HVAC problems that crop up in the summertime that you should be aware of.

Poor Airflow
It's not uncommon for homeowners to experience a decrease in the airflow throughout their home. You'll notice that it feels as if your air conditioner is weak and not producing as much cool air as you desire. The likely culprit is a blocked air filter. Each HVAC system has an air filter whose job is to trap unwanted dirt and debris that accumulates throughout your system. When you don't change this filter, it can be difficult for cool air to pass through it to the rooms of your home.

To solve this problem, simply change out the air filter for your system. You can find the recommended air filter by removing the old one and getting the product number. There are many different grades of air filters out there. Be sure to choose one that will adequately remove the dirt and debris from your home.

Clogged Condenser Drain
One of the most common calls for HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area is a clogged condenser drain. Every air conditioning system will have a condenser and it works to remove the moisture out of the air. The moisture travels down the condenser drain and, usually, to the exterior of your home. Over time, hard water can cause a buildup in the drain line that completely blocks the flow of moisture out of your home.

To solve this problem, you'll need to clean out the drain line. You can do this by disconnecting the line yourself or scheduling an appointment with a certified technician from Maple Air Heating and Cooling, serving the Greater Toronto Area. Either way, once the hard water is removed from the drain line, it will start to remove moisture from your home again.

Low Refrigerant Levels
Every air conditioner needs refrigerant to operate correctly. Over time, it's not uncommon for tiny leaks to show in the coils and refrigerant lines. This allows the refrigerant to leak out and leaves your AC system undercharged. To solve this issue, you'll need the assistance of a reputable HVAC technician from Maple Air Heating and Cooling, located in Vaughan. They can add refrigerant to your system and fix any leaks.

Issues arise in any system, what's important is taking care of the problem immediately. If your HVAC system faces any issues this summer, Maple Air Heating and Cooling, serving the Greater Toronto Area, will be glad to assist you. Contact us today!
