When homeowners choose to repair an air conditioning system or replace the unit with a newer one, they're often plagued by worries that their family will swelter while the job is completed.  These concerns are perfectly normal and common among many homeowners looking for HVAC fixes or air conditioner repair specialists.


Furnace Specialist The furnace is hot and every once in a while the burner will come on for a short time and then go off again. But the blower that should be running to circulate the hot air from the furnace to the house is not working. How can you fix that? It really isn't very hard.It does not matter what the fuel of your hot air furnace is. If the blower is not circulating the air through the heater then you are not getting warm. The function of the blower is to move the heat from the heater to the space that need to be heated.A few simple tests can tell you what your problem is. Do you have power going to the motor that runs the blower? If you have power going to the motor and it is very hot than maybe the blower wheel has come lose and it is stuck on something that is keeping it from turning. Try to turn the wheel to see if it is stuck. If the wheel is not hitting anything and just turns hard then the bearings of the motor are bad and the motor needs to be replaced. In some rare cases the motor has little tubes to the bearings and some oil can be worked into the bearings to free them up. This is a long a tedious process, but I have done it successfully a few times. If the wheel is hitting something, then try to see if it can be fixed. Sometimes the set screw will just come lose from the shaft and repositioning the wheel and tightening the screw will fix the problem.Sometimes power will be going to the motor and nothing at all is happening. Replacing the motor is then the only option. The worst case that happens and is one of the most common problems is for the hub of the blower wheel to brake off. This lets the inside of the wheel fall down on the motor shaft. The metal from the wheel will saw off the shaft of the motor rather quickly as it is spinning trying to run the blower. The result of this is a ruined wheel and motor. This gives a brief overview of some of the many things that may happen to your blower in your hot air furnace. I have encountered many other things over the years, but these are the most common problems. It will give you a few things to look for if you are having problems. Be very careful because many times the edges of the metal pieces are very sharp. You can be cut very easily when checking or handling these parts. I know and have the scars to prove it! Do not be in a hurry and be safe.

Three Types of HVAC Condensers

Aircon Repair Service A common complaint about heating and cooling systems is wide temperature differences between rooms and between stories in homes. Heating and air conditioning (HVAC) contractors often refer to correcting temperature differences between areas as balancing the system. An HVAC system that is properly sized and properly installed should require only minor adjustment to achieve a reasonable temperature balance. In practice, HVAC system sizing and installation errors are common and can make balancing difficult.There are several heating and cooling performance standards for HVAC systems. The International Residential Code (IRC) heating performance standard requires that the system maintain a temperature in the home of at least 68Ës F. The IRC has no performance standard for cooling. The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) heating performance standard is 70Ës F. and the cooling standard is 78Ës F. or 15Ës F. below an outside air temperature of 95Ës F. The performance standard temperature is often measured near the center of the room and about five feet above the floor. States or cities may have different performance standards. The Arizona cooling performance standard is 78Ës F. or 30 degrees below the outside air temperature. These national and local standards usually apply to every room in the home. In cooling mode, for example, if the thermostat temperature is 78Ës F., the temperature in every room controlled by that thermostat should be at least 78Ës F. A one or two degree variance from the thermostat temperature is usually allowed.Balancing is affected by numerous factors that can change based on the time of day and the season of the year. Some factors that affect balancing include: room location (south and west facing rooms can be more difficult to cool), size, quality and location of windows and doors, room size and ceiling height, size and location of supply and return registers, thermostat location, and location of the air handler relative to the room (the air handler must push air further through ducts in unconditioned space).Because a balancing problem can have multiple causes, solving the problem can require multiple solutions. Here are some simple potential solutions for balancing problems. Confirm that all supply and return registers are open and unobstructed. Confirm that filters have been cleaned or changed per manufacturer's instructions. Confirm that ducts are sized and installed according to recommended standards. Confirm that insulation is installed properly and in the required amount. Install sun screens on south and west facing windows in high heat areas. Plant deciduous trees on the south and west sides (sun in winter, shade in summer). Improve air flow in rooms with doors by providing a return air path if none exists. If these simple solutions do not produce satisfactory results, other solutions may be required. These solutions may include changing the supply and/or return duct configuration and adding zones that are separately controlled by their own thermostats. Furnace Diagnosis
