Common Winter HVAC Issues and Solutions

Winter is finally upon us here in Houston, Texas! Even though we are one of the most southern metro areas in the country, the wintertime can still prove to be quite chilly! With that being said, your HVAC system must be prepared for the colder temperatures.

Here are common HVAC problems you might face in winter along with their solutions!

Dirty HVAC Filters

After a long warm summer, your air conditioning has been working day-in and day-out to keep your house cool and comfortable while your heater lays dormant. When the hot weather starts to cool off, you will start to turn on your heating system. With all the air going through your cooling systems and not your heating system, there may be a build-up of dust and other debris in your HVAC filter.

If you turn on your heat and it’s inconsistent, check your HVAC filters and replace them as necessary. Dirty HVAC filters should be checked once a month while being replaced every three months.

Unserviced HVAC System

When sustaining a long, healthy life for your HVAC systems, it’s best to schedule maintenance by a trusted professional once or twice a year. If you neglect to conduct consistent maintenance, certain parts of your HVAC can break down in an untimely fashion, requiring emergency repair.

No one wants their heating to go out at the height of the cold season. So, before the temperature begins to drop to its lowest point, contact a certified HVAC tech for routine maintenance!

Carbon Monoxide Leaks

Carbon monoxide is dangerous since it is a colorless and odorless gas and highly poisonous. Carbon monoxide leaks occur in cracked or rusted heaters.

To stay on top of a potential carbon monoxide leak, it’s best to install carbon monoxide detectors around your home. If there is a leak detected, contact a trusted professional to inspect your heating system.

Inconsistent Temperature

Is one part of your home warmer than another? The problem doesn’t lie within your HVAC’s output, it has something to do with your insulation. When you feel warm air escape certain parts of your home, there may be cracks, leaks, or holes around window sills or doorways. Additionally, your attic can also be a major culprit of heat loss.

Check for cracks, leaks, or holes around your home and seal them up accordingly to keep a consistently warm temperature in the winter!
