Common HVAC Problems & Solutions

Man fixing filter

Your air filter traps dust, dirt, and other debris that would otherwise get into your HVAC system and your living space. It essentially cleans your indoor air and contributes to a healthier home environment. Yet, if you fail to replace your filter often enough, so much matter can build it up that it becomes clogged. This can dramatically reduce airflow and put extra strain on your HVAC system, resulting in higher energy costs and poorer indoor air quality. It’s a good idea to replace your filter every three to five months. If you see a thick layer of dirt obscuring the filter, it’s probably time to replace it. This is an inexpensive way of keeping your HVAC system working smoothly and not requiring maintenance or larger repairs down the road. Learn more about getting clean air and a more efficient HVAC system…

Questions About Processes

First, your new equipment is delivered to your home or business. After that, our expert HVAC technicians remove your old HVAC unit and schedule a pick-up with the local recycling facility, to ensure that it is broken down according to EPA regulations and eco-friendly standards.

Unit size, efficiency, performance, and component quality are all factors that contribute to the final cost of a new AC unit or furnace.

Best Practices

The frequency of servicing for your unit is going to depend on the system, but it should be inspected at least once a year. Based on the age, quality, and how much you use the system, we can tailor a service plan that meets your budget and keeps your system running reliably for the long term. Schedule a free HVAC unit inspection with SWAN today.
