Your HVAC system can break down at any time without any warning signs. It’s particularly bad if the system fails you during the peak of summer or winter. However, there are certain things that you could try to temporarily fix the system until professional help arrives.
Here are five helpful HVAC troubleshooting tips for stabilizing the system. If you require a professional technician to service the system in Baxter or the surrounding areas, call Aquarius Home Services. We also provide plumbing services and maintenance in the Baxter area.
1. Ensure the system is receiving power
More often than not, your air conditioning system could stop working because it has stopped receiving any power. This could happen due to a blown fuse or a flipped breaker. Before you call the professionals, it’s best to flip the breaker once and see if that resolves the issue. If the system still doesn’t work, contact Aquarius Home Services. We will dispatch a knowledgeable professional to service your system as soon as we receive your complaint.
2. Reset your heating system
It’s a frosty night in Baxter or a chilly afternoon in Brainerd, and your heating system chooses the worst possible time to stop working. Chances are, this issue could be resolved simply by resetting the heating system. The reset method of each component of the HVAC is different. You can gather information on how to reset the furnace of the particular model you own from the user manual. If you no longer have the booklet, you can get it online from the brand’s official website to fix your furnace.
3. Check if there’s an issue with the thermostat
Your heating system could experience problems due to a faulty thermostat. If your thermostat is acting up, your heating system will start behaving oddly as well. It could start or stop working at any time. First, make sure that your thermostat has power. If there’s no issue with the power, check the temperature setting and see if there’s something wrong there. If there is, adjust the settings to what you prefer and see if your heating system is now working properly. If the issue still persists, call Aquarius Home Services for heating repairs service. We will even replace and install a new unit if your old one looks to be beyond repair.
4. Turn off the air conditioning
During the summer months, you might be forced to run your AC for hours on end, which could cause the components of your overused AC to freeze. This could render the AC incapable of efficient cooling. If the unit has suddenly stopped working, turn the AC off and turn it on after a while. This is just a quick fix. If the issue keeps recurring despite your efforts, it’s best to call professionals to perform the repair service you need. Aquarius Home Services can take a look at your heating system and do the necessary repairs. We can also handle any plumbing issue and repairs in Baxter and Brainerd, MN as well.
5. Check the wiring
Another reason why your heating, plumbing, or cooling system could suddenly break down is because of wiring issues. Check if there are any disconnected or damaged wires. If you see any damage to the wires, especially to the outside, which is more prone to damage, call Aquarius Home Services. It’s best not to deal with any wiring issues yourself, especially if you have no experience in electrical systems. We will dispatch professionals as soon as we get a call from you. You can also call us if you have any plumbing issues in Baxter or Brainerd.
