Your heating and cooling system is not made up of “set it and forget it” equipment. HVAC equipment requires regular inspections and maintenance, and as the weather starts to warm up, things can go wrong if problems are not addressed. Exactly how wrong things go, however, depends on how proactive you are at preventing or fixing smaller issues.

Here are five common HVAC disasters and tips on how to prevent them.

Equipment failure

Complete failure of your air conditioner can leave you scrambling, especially during warmer temperatures. It is the most obvious disaster but one that can be avoided with regular maintenance. Seasonal inspections help uncover issues when they are small and can be repaired at a lower cost. Pay attention to your HVAC equipment so when something is “off”, you will pick it up on it right away.

Carbon monoxide leak

This is one of the worst problems you could face with your HVAC system. Carbon monoxide leaks are not usually an issue in warmer weather, however, summer is a great time to deal with potential issues before the season changes. Be sure to inspect your furnace’s heat exchanger for cracks or possible weak spots. In addition to a professional inspection, keep your furnace room and vent outlet clear to help minimize the risk of carbon monoxide production.

Too hot or too cold

HVAC systems are never perfect. There will always be times where your home feels a bit too warm during the summer or too cold during the winter. If your indoor temperature seems to never stay comfortable for long, however, this could indicate a problem with your thermostat or HVAC equipment. Your HVAC system depends on multiple components working together and if one is underperforming (or not working at all), your comfort levels could suffer.

Respiratory issues

This is not an issue with your HVAC equipment directly, but it is connected to your HVAC system and it can be prevented. Regular filter replacement and duct cleaning will lower your family’s risk of developing respiratory issues, like asthma, and can drastically reduce allergy symptoms.

Electrical problems

An electrical fire is never something you want to experience, so it is important to pay attention to your HVAC system’s electrical components. If your air conditioner shuts off whenever another appliance is running, it is a good idea to call in a professional to inspect your HVAC system’s electrical connections.

We definitely recommend Tiger!
"My families a/c went out randomly today. I went around the house troubleshooting what I could. It got to the point where we had to call someone. We called the first places that showed up on google. Most places either wanted tons of money just for diagnostics, or couldn’t come out today. We called Tiger they went over the cost and they got someone out to our house in 45 minutes. Josh Moravec was our tech and was super professional, kind and intelligent. He was here for about 15 minutes before he figured out our issue. He went over in depth the cost and verified everything was good before getting started to resolve it. There was no pressure to buy the service if we didn’t want to. He went back down and in 15 minutes the a/c was running strong! He asked if we had any questions and then was on his way! He was great with our kids, very polite and courteous of me and my wife. He answered all our questions, and the price was more than reasonable. We definitely recommend Tiger, and make sure you ask for Josh Moravec if you can!"
