Top 4 DIY Tips for Dallas HVAC Repair

by Stella Brown HVAC Maintenance Service

During a hot and damp day, a forced HVAC system breakdown is the last thing you want to go through. At the point when this occurs, the principal impulse is to contact an expert Dallas HVAC repair contractor who can fix your cooling system and is reasonable. At the point when your HVAC system has serious issues, it's typically difficult to fix them all alone.  But, luckily, there are some common HVAC issues that can be handily fixed with the right rectifying steps. Having the option to fix these issues can save you a lot of money.

 

Here are some simple and fast DIY methods for investigating and fixing minor Dallas HVAC repair issues-



1.    Inspect the circuit breaker- In the event that your HVAC system won't turn on, the primary thing you can attempt to do is take a look at its circuit breaker. Ordinarily found in the main electrical panel usually controls the power sent to the house.  In some cases, the circuit breaker activates when it cannot handle the excessive load. This is more likely to occur when many appliances and other electrical gears are connected to the same breaker.

 

This is a speedy check you can manage without expecting to require an HVAC technician. However, if this happens frequently, there may be a system short circuit that can be easily fixed by a certified Dallas HVAC contractor.



2.            Clean or replace the air filter- The air filter controls the amount of air that enters the house. If the HVAC is not as cold as it used to be, the filter may be dirty and clogged. This blockage can impede airflow and freeze the system, affecting the cooling efficiency of the unit. This problem can be forestalled by successive cleaning or changing the filter frequently. 

 

As a rule of thumb, if the filter is too dirty to clean, you should replace it. No special skills are required to install the new filter. Therefore, you can do this task yourself. Make sure the filter you buy is of high quality and lasts a long time. And make sure you are buying the correct size filter. Manufacturers generally recommend replacing the air filter every 60-90 days.



3.            Inspect the thermostat- Another thing to check if the HVAC doesn't get as cold as before is the thermostat. If unchecked for a long time, the thermostat may lose its original settings. A single quick reset may be sufficient to resolve this issue. Also, check the batteries. It may need to be replaced. Also, the thermostat should be set below the ambient room temperature. If you don't see the numbers on your thermostat, consider getting a replacement thermostat. Setting the thermostat to heat shuts down the entire system.



4.            Melt the ice- If the unit freezes because the filter is clogged and dirty, turn off the unit but the fan will continue to operate. This allows the ice to melt faster than it can be turned off. Within an hour or two, the accumulated ice will thaw and the system will start working again. If the coil freezes again, more serious fundamental problems can occur, such as dirty coils, low refrigerant levels, and clogged drains. If this happens again, you should consider requesting Dallas HVAC repair services.
