Poor airflow is one of the most common causes of uneven heating and cooling. Dirty filters can block your HVAC system's ventilation and affect system performance. Remember to have your filters changed every three months. Those with allergies or pets might opt for monthly filter replacement. Apart from clogged filters, poor airflow can also stem from a broken air handler or ductwork damage.
Typically lukewarm air from an AC is a result of evaporator coil damage. You may have a refrigerant leak (and so low Freon) or frozen coils. As Freon is toxic, it’s best to call our team for professional repairs as soon as you start to notice warmer airflow.
First, switch your thermostat fan to auto instead of on. If this doesn't solve the issue, the problem may be in your heat exchanger. You’ll need professional furnace repairs.
You should have your filter replaced and your system cleaned every 6 to 12 months at the least. Otherwise, excess minerals can build up, leading to water quality issues and possibly even system damage.
Contact our team right away if you notice multiple clogged or slow-flowing drains in your home. You likely have a deep system clog or damage somewhere in your drain line.
Keeping your drain lines clean and free of blockages will go a long way in preventing burst pipes. Likewise, keep up with regular inspections. Even minor damage can quickly escalate if left unaddressed. During the winter, you can prevent frozen pipes by leaving your water trickling, adding pipe insulation, or installing heat tape.
