Keeping your home or office’s temperatures comfortable is often just a push of a button on the thermostat and then your HVAC does all the work. But what do you do when the heat or the air doesn’t kick on? It could be one of many problems. Calling a professional here in Illinois can help get rid of the guesswork. HVAC repair professionals in Geneva know where to look and what to look for.
Air conditioning repairs are usually one of three things: Compressor, Capacitor, or Condensing Fan. The compressor is what professionals look at if the air conditioning unit occasionally turns off unexpectedly or if it has trouble starting up. An air conditioning compressor hard start kit might be the solution, or you might need the more costly complete compressor.
A common air conditioner malfunction is when the capacitor fails. The capacitor stores energy for the air conditioner and provides the first jolt of electricity to get things going. The capacitor also manages the outside portion of the air conditioner and increases the cooling process. The capacitor can be replaced by your local HVAC repair professional.
A faulty condensing fan may cause the air conditioning motor to work less effectively, or not at all. Replacing the condensing fan on your HVAC unit may be the solution to cooling you off on a hot summer’s day.
Furnace repairs are usually one of seven things: blower pipe, flue pipe, heat exchange, combustion chamber, relay switch, thermocouple, or ignitor. The blower pipe is what blows the heated air from the furnace to the vents. It also blows cool air from the air conditioner to the vents. If the air isn’t moving from your HVAC unit, the blower pipe might need to be replaced.
The flue pipe vents exhaust such as carbon monoxide and other dangerous gasses from inside the HVAC to the outside of the house. A flue pipe is an important part of your HVAC that must be maintained. If it is damaged, your health or your life may be in jeopardy. Make sure to have it replaced.
If your heat exchange isn’t working, it can’t transfer the thermal energy from gas, propane, etc. into the heat that warms your home. Ask your HVAC professional about having it repaired or replaced.
The combustion chamber, also known as the burner, is where the air gets heated up. Sometimes the fuel can enter the chamber and cause damage. Getting the chamber cleaned up, repaired, or replaced is necessary for a safe, clean burn.
A relay switch is really the heart of ventilation for your HVAC. Your relay switch is magnetically operated and is used in your fan motor operations, whether it be for heating or air conditioning. Your relay switch can be easily replaced if necessary.
The thermocouple is a safety device used to check to see if your pilot light is on. If it fails to work, it can easily be repaired.
The ignitor is what sends a spark to get the cooler air heated in the first place. Your HVAC professional can replace the ignitor if necessary.
