HVAC Repair Services

It is not uncommon for many business owners and families to encounter unexpected problems with their residential HVAC systems. These types of systems generally require occasional maintenance to ensure their continuous efficiency. Oftentimes, people neglect to have their HVAC units inspected and find themselves unexpectedly without adequate heating, cooling or refrigeration in their homes or businesses. In such events, it is imperative to contact a local HVAC repair specialist immediately, as it is not uncommon for these problems to escalate into expensive full blown breakdowns very quickly. Fireweed Home Comfort specializes in same-day emergency HVAC repair service. We are committed to quick response, high-quality service to get our clients back to enjoying heating, cooling and refrigeration in their homes and businesses. We know what it’s like to be stuck in the summer months without proper air conditioning, and similarly, we’ve also experienced the discomfort of being without heat in the winter. We want to help you avoid discomfort by addressing your HVAC needs as soon as possible.

What are the Most Common HVAC Problems?

There are various issues that can occur with HVAC systems, ranging from minor annoyances to major malfunctions.

Some of the most common problems include:

  • Malfunctioning thermostat: The thermostat is the control center for your HVAC system, and if it is not functioning properly, your entire system may not work as expected.
  • Clogged or dirty filters: Dirty air filters can block airflow and reduce the efficiency of your HVAC system.
  • Refrigerant leaks: If your HVAC system is low on refrigerant, it can't effectively cool or heat your home.
  • Electrical issues: Faulty wiring, blown fuses, or tripped breakers can all cause your HVAC system to stop working.
  • Dirty condenser coils: Over time, condenser coils can become dirty and obstructed with debris, which could lead to system failure.

When Should You Call an HVAC Professional?

While some HVAC problems can be fixed with basic troubleshooting and maintenance, others require professional expertise.

Here are some signs that it's time to call in one of our HVAC technicians:

  • Inconsistent temperatures
  • Strange noises or odors
  • High energy bills
  • System is constantly cycling on and off
  • Poor airflow

Trying to fix these issues on your own can be dangerous and may result in further damage to your HVAC system.

How Long Does It Take to Repair an HVAC System?

Depending on the complexity of the issue, HVAC repairs can take anywhere from a few hours to a few days.

Minor issues, such as a clogged filter or thermostat malfunction can usually be resolved within a few hours. However, major repairs like replacing a compressor or fixing a refrigerant leak may take longer, sometimes up to a day or more.

Additionally, if any parts need to be ordered, the repair time may be extended until they arrive.

Is it Worth Repairing an Old HVAC Unit?

On average, an HVAC system can last around 10-15 years. However, the lifespan can vary depending how the system and how you use it. If your system is nearing or past this timeframe and you're experiencing frequent problems, it may be time to consider replacing it.

Additionally, if the cost of repairs is becoming more expensive than a new system or if your energy bills are continuously rising, it may be more cost-effective in the long run to invest in a new HVAC system.

On the other hand, if your system is still relatively new and the issues are minor, repair may be a more viable, cost-effective option. Our recommendation is to schedule an inspection with our HVAC technicians to accurately assess the condition of your system and determine the best course of action.

Can Regular HVAC Maintenance Reduce Repair Costs?

Yes, regular HVAC maintenance can significantly reduce the need for repairs and ultimately save you money in the long run. Scheduling annual maintenance appointments helps to catch potential issues before they become major problems. This preventative measure can also prolong the life of your HVAC system, allowing you to get the most out of your investment.
