Serving Thousand Palms and Coachella Valley

The HVAC system in your Thousand Palms, California, home helps to keep your home comfortable even when the temperatures begin to drop. Unfortunately, even well-maintained systems can and do have problems. You should always be vigilant when it comes to HVAC problems and call the pros if you notice any of the issues listed below.

Problems With the Pilot or Ignition

There can be a number of reasons why the ignition in your heating system is not operating as it should. The pilot could be dirty, there could be delayed ignition, or your flame sensors may be damaged. It also could be a more dangerous and pressing issue such as gas supply problems or a failing thermocouple. No matter what the cause of your problem, you’ll want to have this issue addressed by a professional as it deals with many of the more dangerous aspects of your HVAC system, such as high voltage and natural gas.

Strange Noises

Any unusual or loud noises coming from your HVAC system should be immediately investigated to see if there is a problem. Squealing noises can be a sign that a belt needs lubrication, or is in need of replacement. Clanking and banging noises could be a sign that a part has come loose and is moving around amongst the components. If these issues are left unaddressed, they can result in significantly more costly repairs.

Continuous Running

If your blower seems to be running constantly, and your thermostat is not set to the on position, there could be a problem with the relays in the system. It could also mean that there is a problem with the safety controls on your system. When a safety system gets activated, the furnace will begin to cool the system down. If this system does not reset, the blower may cease to shut off. Contact a technician immediately to find the source of the constant running.

If you are experiencing any of the three HVAC problems above, contact us at 760-289-5998. One of our Vic’s Air Conditioning service specialists will immediately diagnose the problem and get your system running smoothly again.
