Common Summer HVAC Problems

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.

  • On July 8, 2021, A Plus Quality Inc installed a boiler in my house. The company did a great job. The manager, Shak, came to give me a very detailed estimate. He also followed up every steps. He had a good team to come to do the installation. After installation, they check and explaining to me everything before leaving. I am really impressed. Besides, the office manager, Sandi, was very helpful too. I would like to recommend A Plus Quality Inc to my friends.

  • The boiler at our church died in January 2021 and we urgently needed a replacement. A Plus Quality responded right away. Despite the pandemic they managed to order all required parts and install them in about a week (it was a big job). The team was really professional and the price was reasonable. I would highly recommend A Plus Quality.

FAQ

  • 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.

  • Why is there ice building up on the copper pipes?

    There can be many reasons why the refrigerant pipes are freezing up but the most common issue is low refrigerant levels. If your AC unit has ice buildup turn off the unit for at least 4 hours and call us at 416-410-0337

  • Why should I maintain my Furnace or AC?

    An annual maintenance will extend the lifetime of your heating and cooling unit. The technician will diagnose and repair any problem with the unit before it fails, so you won't need to worry about any problems when the weather gets very hot in the summer or extremely cold in the winter.

  • 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”.

  • How do I know what size unit I need?
    If you have any problems with your system, you should contact the contractor who installed the units. All our systems are covered by a 5 year parts, 7 year compressor limited warranty
