Common Summer HVAC Problems


As summer draws upon us, it's essential to know whether or not your HVAC system is in working order. Lots of problems can ensue, but there are simple solutions for many of the more common issues.

Refrigerant Leaks
The telltale sign that your HVAC's refrigerant lines are leaking is that your vents are blowing warm air throughout your house. These start as small pinholes in your coils and lines, but they can grow into serious issues overtime. The best solution is to
schedule an appointment with a technican from A-Plus Quality HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area to have the leaks patched up. Home solutions can cause more harm than good in the long run.

Poor Air Flow
There are lots of reasons why your HVAC isn't blowing like it should. A common problem is that the air filter needs to be replaced, which you can do yourself; it is recommended to do this at least once a month. Another solution is clearing all of the excess debris from your outdoor condenser. Dead grass and weeds can get into the condenser from when you mow the lawn or use your weed trimmer, and removing that dead foliage will improve the air flow.

Too Much Humidity
Even in the Greater Toronto Area, an HVAC unit will sometimes be bested by humidity levels in the summer. This is often a sign that your HVAC unit is aging and needs replacement. If you can't get HVAC services right away, then a good stopgap measure is to purchase a dehumidifier that can help the unit along.

Expensive Hydro Bills
As the temperature climbs, your energy bills may seem to be getting more expensive that they should be. A good solution to this problem is to keep your thermostat between 24-26 degrees while using fans to keep that air circulated throughout your home. If you can do so, you should have your HVAC system updated to one that can handle a smart thermostat.

The summer heat is great, especially when most of our months are filled with cold temperatures. It is important that all of your HVAC systems are running properly to provide proper comfort and maximized savings. If you have any questions regarding HVAC, the experts at A-Plus Quality, HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area, will be happy to help. Contact us today!

  • Outstanding service all around. (Thanks so very much!) I would highly recommend you to family and friends. All of you were knowledgeable and professional in every way. The technicians were efficient, helped moved a few heavy boxes, and were careful in my house. I especially appreciate that Jack, who gave me good options, helped my choose what was appropriate for my house (to replace my 25 year old furnace) and at a very fair price. Thanks again!

  • We needed a new boiler fast and they were faster than the other places we got quotes from, they were more sincere, less sales-oriented , and they had more technical knowledge and were able to explain things in layman's terms. They were transparent in their pricing and everything came out as estimated after the boiler was replaced. They didn't try to sell us maintenance packages or anything like that, just gave us the service we needed. We feel lucky to have stumbled upon them.

FAQ

  • What is a mini-split?

    By definition, and simply put, a “Split System” is a heating and air conditioning system which has two main components, the indoor unit and outdoor unit. In short, the indoor unit absorbs heat energy in the cooling mode, and the outdoor unit rejects the very heat absorbed by the indoor unit. And the cycle is repeated until the set temperature is met. Although the indoor and outdoor units are located in physically different, hence “split” locations, they are connected and operate as, one system; continuously circulating refrigerant liquid and vapor by means of interconnecting, dehydrated copper refrigerant lines, commonly referred to as a “Line Set”.

  • What is a heat pump?

    Heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house and during the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can provide equivalent space conditioning at as little as one quarter of the cost of operating conventional heating or cooling appliances.

  • Furnace is blowing cold air in Winter?

    This can be due to Ignition lockout, sometimes could be resolved by resetting the power  and if this does not resolve the issue you should contact a certified gas technician from A-Plus Quality to get this problem resolved!

  • Water is Leaking on my Furnace

    Water falling on to the furnace can harm your heating unit by affecting the control boards and other components enclosed in the furnace. There can be many causes to the water overflow, but the most common cases in the summer is the ice build up inside the evaporator coil due to low refrigerant level. Water build up can also be due to the evaporator coil having a crack on the base, if this is the case contact us by booking an appointment or call us today to have a technician come have a look at your unit and repair this issue before it causes excessive damage.
