When working correctly, your HVAC system brings air from outside your home, filters it and modulates the temperature, distributes this air throughout your entire interior, and successfully drains excess moisture and ventilates your home. If any of these elements are not working just right, it may be time to bring in a professional for air conditioning repair or maintenance.
Parts of an HVAC Control System
There might be three basic components of the HVAC control system, but of course, it’s really a bit more complicated than that. The three elements of your HVAC system are comprised of multiple individual parts, all which work together to heat and cool your home.
Although your own system may be slightly different in general, you’ll find the following parts in residential HVAC systems:
- Freon or Refrigerant: this is the stuff that moves throughout the system and it’s how everything stays cool.
- Compressor: this is the large box outside your home that you might refer to as the ‘air conditioner’ itself. It’s what pumps Freon throughout the whole system. The Freon both starts in the Compressor and returns there, sort of like blood is pumped to and from the human heart. Needless to say, this is an essential component that you will want to make sure is well maintained!
- Line Sets/Coils: these are how the Freon travels through the system, cooling air.
- Filter Dryer: Located right next to the compressor, this is what filters the system.
- Condenser: this is where the Freon is cooled down before traveling through your home again. This is the part of the system that requires the fan to run and keep it cool.
- Drain Line: This is how condensation, a natural part of the air conditioning process, is disposed of.
- Thermostat: A part that you’re probably already familiar with. It regulates the temperature of the whole system by communicating with both your condenser and your furnace to keep your home as hot or cool as you desire.
- Evaporator Coil: Often located in the attic, the evaporator coil pulls in warm air, cools the air by absorbing heat and moisture, and returns it to the home.
- Blower Motor: Located inside the furnace, it helps move air throughout your home.
Common HVAC and Air Conditioning Problems
If your air conditioning doesn’t feel like it’s working just right—if it isn’t cooling your home well enough, or if your home is consistently too cold—chances are there’s something amiss.
To keep a home properly ventilated, its HVAC system has to be properly maintained or at least attended to immediately once it shows signs of problems such as uneven heat or fluctuating temperature within a certain time frame.
The following are common problems that might cause homeowners to require air conditioning repairs. If you think you recognize one of these problems with your air conditioning, contact Plumbers 911 immediately for a professional diagnosis and to discuss air conditioning repairs.
- Lack of air coming from interior vents: This may be a problem you can troubleshoot at home. Check to make sure that the breaker for your air conditioning hasn’t tripped, and reset it if necessary. Check to make sure that the condenser’s reservoir is properly drained, as a full reservoir can also cause the air conditioner to stop running.
If neither of these is the case, you may need an expert technician to help diagnose the problem.
- Your exterior fan is blowing hot air: There are several things that might be the culprit: either your blower motor or condenser fan motor might need to be replaced. Alternately, the system may be low on Freon, or your compressor may need to be replaced. A skilled technician will be able to further diagnose this for you, and help determine the best course of action.
- Ice is accumulating on the lines connecting the indoor and outdoor units: This likely signals a problem with the Freon in your air conditioning system. For safety reasons, don’t try to DIY repairs that deal directly with Freon, and contact a professional instead.
- Air conditioning isn’t cooling well enough: There is likely not a major problem, but this can happen if routine maintenance is not performed on the system. Simple maintenance on a regular basis is the key to an air conditioning system functioning properly, and it’s a good reason to contact an expert even when things seem like they’re running smoothly!
