Although HVAC technology is one of the most useful inventions throughout all of history, it’s not without its problems. In many cases, these are relatively easy to handle — but only if you know what signs to watch out for.

We’ve put together a quick guide that details common HVAC problems you need to be aware of.

Let’s take a look.

1. Airflow Problems

As you might guess, it’s highly likely that you will quickly discern any airflow problems that your HVAC unit has. In fact, it’s often difficult to remain unaware that something is wrong during this scenario.

You might find that your home or business is no longer adequately heated or cooled. You may also notice that your HVAC system now works longer and harder to maintain the same temperature.

Luckily, airflow problems usually only require a quick service call to resolve.

Homeowners may also notice that they experience issues with allergies during this scenario. Fortunately, our i-Wave product can quickly eliminate this problem.

This unique air purification system uses a technology that actively treats air in the living space, killing mold, bacteria, and germs while reducing allergens, odors, smoke, and other airborne particles.

It’s also notably easy to install, a process that takes approximately 15 minutes, and is able to utilize your existing air conditioner unit.

2. Strong Odors

As with airflow issues, the presence of strong odors is something that is difficult to miss. Unfortunately, this sign can often point to a serious issue within your HVAC system.

Most people tend to notice a musty smell, which is often a result of mold growth. But, you may also notice a strong burning odor when your unit operates.

The latter situation is particularly concerning since an undiagnosed electrical issue within your HVAC system could easily lead to a fire.

In the event that you experience a burning smell in your home, it’s best to get in touch with an electrician as soon as possible.

3. Drainage Issues

Although drainage issues are easy to overlook, they’re also easy to check for if you search in the right places.

This HVAC problem can easily be discerned by the accumulation of water in areas where moisture normally isn’t present. For example, a clogged drain line could result in a backup that causes noticeable leaks.

This issue could also contribute to the growth of mold if left unchecked. Although not quite as serious as a burning odor, drainage issues could cause significant complications over time (such as property damage).

Recognizing HVAC Problems Might Seem Complicated

However, the above information will make the process far smoother. From here, you’ll be able to ensure that you recognize HVAC problems right away and get in touch with a professional as soon as possible.
