Answering FAQs About HVAC Repairs

Because of our dependency on HVAC systems, they unfortunately tend to act up every now and then. Repairs are necessary not only to restore your broken equipment’s functionality, but also to tune up certain parts, and make the units run efficiently again. 

To help keep your HVAC units long lasting, Countryside’s heating and air conditioning experts answer the most frequently asked questions about repairs.

Can I Fix My Own System?

The only thing you can safely troubleshoot is the thermostat. Many thermostat issues are solvable with battery replacement and relocation. However, when it comes to other components, it’s best to leave them to NATE-certified technicians.

Don’t try on your own to fix your faulty air conditioner, heat pump, furnace, or dehumidifier. Regardless of the model, repairing any HVAC unit is always dangerous. The job may involve gas or electricity; these hazards can hurt you or cause significant proper damage. If you want to get it done right the first time, call in a qualified professional.

What Are the Benefits of Preventive Maintenance?

Preventive maintenance means scheduling inspections regularly to uncover red flags early and tackle repairs in a timely manner. No HVAC equipment can reach its expected service life without proper maintenance.

In addition to maintaining your system and preventing failure, having a preventive maintenance plan allows you to build a relationship with a trustworthy technician. In case of emergency, you can rest assured that a reliable professional will service your equipment. 

When Are Repairs Worth Doing?

It’s unreasonable to buy a new system when your current one is still in its prime. However, you should consider getting a replacement when your equipment is over seven years old and needs repairs too frequently. At some point, it’s no longer financially sensible to keep fixing a not so old unit that breaks down far too often.
