6 Things to Check Before Calling an HVAC Contractor

6 Things to Check Before Calling an HVAC Contractor

In North Alabama, having a comfort system that works is essential. If you find yourself in a situation where your heating and air system stops working, there are a number of things you can check before calling in for professional help. Bunn’s and Bennett Heating and Air is here to help with any of your heating and cooling needs, but before you come to us, you might want to check these following six things regarding your system:

Air Conditioning Filters

Your HVAC air filters should be changed regularly, typically every one to three months in climates like ours. If your filter is dirty or clogged, the air won’t be able to flow through it and your air conditioner will not be able to properly function.

Your Home’s Power

Although this may seem like a simple thing to think of, when you are without heat in the middle of winter, the first reaction is to call for help to get it running. However, if there is no power in your house, your comfort system will most certainly not work if it runs on electricity.

The Thermostat Batteries

If the batteries in your thermostat are dead, the thermostat will not be able to “tell” your heating system to start up and warm the house. Change the batteries in your thermostat if necessary.

Your Thermostat Setting

Although you may believe your thermostat is set to warm and to the temperature of your liking, you should verify this. Your system may not be working as desired if it’s set too cool or is set to off.

The Breaker Box

If you have power to the house, you should verify that power is, in fact, going to your comfort system. You can do this by checking the breaker box in your home for a tripped breaker. If the breaker for your HVAC has been tripped, you should turn it back on and see if the system begins running.

Find a Professional AC Company You Can Trust

If you are not able to find the cause of your HVAC problems, contact Bunn’s and Bennett Heating and Air. Our highly trained technicians and HVAC experts will determine why your system is not working and get you up and running in no time.
