HVAC Troubleshooting Guide

Easy Fixes for Your Paschal-Installed Units

Welcome to your go-to resource for addressing common heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) issues in your home.

Low-Temperature Troubleshooting

Utilizing Aux/Emergency Heat Below 30 Degrees

When temperatures plunge, your heat pump might need a little help.

Here’s what to do when the mercury dips below 30°F:

  • Switch to Aux/Emergency Heat: Your thermostat has a setting for auxiliary or emergency heat. Use it to activate your heat strips, offering extra warmth.
  • Understand Your Heat Pump: Heat pumps are efficient, but in extreme cold, they struggle to extract heat from the outside air. That’s where your heat strips come in, providing the necessary boost.
  • Keep an Eye on Your Energy Use: While using emergency heat, remember it’s slightly less efficient. Use it judiciously to balance comfort and energy consumption.

High-Temperature Troubleshooting

AC Issues in High Heat: What to Check

Not cooling off enough during those hot summer days? Here’s a quick checklist:

  • Check and Replace Your Filter: A clogged filter restricts airflow, significantly reducing efficiency. Regularly check and, if necessary, replace your filter for optimal performance.
  • Inspect the Outdoor Unit for Ice Buildup: Yes, even in summer! Ice buildup can occur and impede your AC’s ability to cool. If you notice any ice, turn off the unit and call us.
  • General Tips: Keep your AC unit free from debris and ensure all vents inside your home are unobstructed for better airflow.
