Early Fall Issues Your HVAC System Might Encounter

October 1, 2019

The early fall is generally a time during which the weather transitions from hot and dry to cool and rainy. These changing weather conditions could have an impact on your HVAC system in several ways.

Air Filters Can Become Clogged

It isn’t uncommon for pollen, dirt and other debris to be more prevalent during the summer months. Therefore, it may not take as much time for a furnace’s air filter to become clogged or otherwise not function at its peak capacity. If airborne particles and pollutants aren’t taken out of the air, they could cause the furnace to work harder to produce warm air. Ideally, you will change an air filter every 30 days during the spring and summer months to prevent issues during the early fall months.

Compressor Components Could Be Clogged

There is a chance that compressor lines could be clogged by leaves or excess rain that can fall during September and October. Depending on where a unit is located, it can be relatively easy for grass clippings to fall in and make it harder for the fan or motor blower to do its job effectively. It is also a good idea to ensure that there aren’t weeds or other plants growing in or around outdoor cooling components.

Objects Can Fall Into a Compressor Unit

You may hear a rattling noise coming from the air conditioner later in the summer and into the early fall season. This is likely the result of an object such as a twig or an acorn falling into the compressor unit. In many cases, you simply have to remove the object to solve the problem.
