If You’re in a Fix, We’ll Get You Out

Roth Heating lends you a helping hand however we can—like offering DIY tips to fix your malfunctioning HVAC system. Troubleshooting minor issues yourself can save you time and money before you need to call a professional. These simple tips are solutions for some of the most common HVAC issues homeowners experience:

  • Dirty air filters can cause your system to heat and cool unevenly. If you notice this happening or can’t remember when you last changed your filter, it’s time to replace or clean yours. Failure to change filters regularly can wreak havoc on your comfort system. Contaminants will continue to circulate through your home leading to a clogged system and limited airflow—both of which can shorten your system’s lifespan.
  • Checking your thermostat may seem like common sense, but even the smallest issues can cause your system to operate incorrectly. For example, your thermostat might be set to the wrong temperature or have low batteries, causing your system to receive false information. Give your thermostat a quick check over—you never know who may have bumped or played with it.
  • Looking over your circuit breaker could uncover an easy fix to problems with your comfort system. Sometimes overloaded circuits switch off to protect your system. Make sure the circuit associated with your system is not switched off—if it is, flip it to “on” and see if that does the trick. If it doesn’t, or if your circuit keeps tripping, there may be a larger issue present that our technicians will take care of.
