Top 5 Common HVAC Problems and How to Fix them

Can’t pinpoint why your HVAC system isn’t performing optimally? Take a look below at the most common HVAC problems.

Question: My energy bill has increased, and I don’t know why.

Answer: Have you checked your air filters recently?

Regularly replacing your filers is one of the easiest and most important things you can do to help extend the efficiency and overall life of your system. Clogged or dirty air filters will restrict airflow, forcing your units to work overtime to circulate air throughout your home. This can cause your systems to overheat or shut off. Reduce the need of replacement with an upgraded Sobieski MERV filter.
