Monday, June 5th, 2023

We talk often on this blog about some of the components of your air conditioner being particularly critical to its operation. The refrigerant is an obvious one, since that’s what absorbs the heat from your home and then releases it outside. And the compressor is what makes all that possible, pressurizing that refrigerant and keeping it moving. But no amount of cooling power will actually keep your home comfortable if the blower fan doesn’t work.

Here are three of the most common issues that can cause your air conditioner’s blower fan to stop delivering that cool air to where it’s needed.

Why Your Heater Keeps Turning On and Off

Monday, January 17th, 2022

If your furnace keeps turning on and off repeatedly, cycling too quickly between the heating cycle and the resting or cool-down period, you have a short-cycling problem. Short-cycling wastes energy and actually damages the furnace by causing it to run at above normal temperatures for an extended period of time. This can lead to breakdowns and costly repairs.

As you might have noticed, the furnace in your home turns on and off several times per hour, sometimes even more frequently. Depending on how cold it is, it may do so even more often—even hourly. This cycling is necessary because climate control isn’t like flipping a switch, and a “constant” temperature doesn’t really exist as far as your furnace is concerned. When it happens too frequently, though, your furnace is likely out of whack.

The furnace in your home is just like any other machine, in the sense that it has moving parts that need to work in a certain way for your home to be warm. When something goes wrong with the way it operates, problems are bound to arise. This can lead to gaps in heat or hot and cold spots in your home. Having regular service performed on your furnace can help prevent short cycling from happening and other serious issues from developing within the system…
