My HVAC System Broke. Now What?

It always happens the same way every time. It’s either the hottest or coldest day out of the entire year when your HVAC system decides that it doesn’t want to work anymore, leaving you to sweat it out or freeze. It’s all too easy to go into a state of panic when these situations occur. After all, you’ve spent good money on a unit to make the heat/cold stay outside of your home. Although we hope that you never run into this issue, if it ever were to occur, knowing how to handle this situation will cause your stress level to go down. Take a look at what you should do when your HVAC system calls it quits.

Step 1) See If You Can Quickly Determine the Problem

First and foremost, don’t panic. There is always a solution to your HVAC problem so even if you have to face an uncomfortable situation, it won’t be permanent. Keep in mind that sometimes the cause of a heating and air conditioning malfunction is simply old age. Other times, it could be the result of faulty wiring, filters, and other technical reasons. In the case of an outage, do your best to see if you can figure out what the issue is.

Take down as many details about the situation as you can, including:
Leaks
Sounds
State of System
Temperature
Odd Situations
Anything Unusual
Any Concerns You May Have
You’ll need this information for step 2.

Step 2) Call Your HVAC Technician Immediately

Typically when your HVAC unit goes out, it means the issue is far beyond your control. Your next plan of action is to call your local HVAC expert repairman. With their expertise, they will know exactly how to identify and fix any heating, cooling, or system malfunction. Once your technician arrives, provide them with as much detail as possible about the situation such as the items listed above. After you’ve given them the information, sit back as they fix your problem in no time.

Step 3) Schedule Annual HVAC Maintenance

Although the situation is now fixed, it’s in your best interest to have your residential heating and cooling system inspected and maintained at least once a year. This preventative maintenance will lessen the possibility of your air conditioning or heat failing again.
