Life at home can become unbearable when the heat or air conditioning suddenly stops working. Proper maintenance is essential for your heating and cooling systems to operate correctly. Fortunately, you can use Goodman parts to repair these HVAC components at home.
If your furnace is no longer producing heat, resetting the circuit breaker or replacing a fuse could fix the problem. If not, you may need to replace the circuit breaker or the wiring. When you feel like the furnace hasn't been producing enough heat lately, it's often the filter that needs to be replaced.
If you have a problem with the pilot light staying on, then the thermocouple might need to be replaced. If you have heating or cycling problems that aren't fixed with a new filter, you can try replacing the blower of the system, which may be out of balance. You should also check and make sure that the thermostat doesn't need to be replaced.
The air handler consists of cooling or heating elements, a blower, filter chambers, dampers and sound attenuators. The box is typically attached to ventilation ductwork and distributes air throughout the building. Air handlers typically break down due to damaged coils, clogged filters or poor wiring.
Some of the components that might need to be replaced include the relay board, the capacitor, the blower fan, the filters and the contactor. Leaks into the blower compartment can cause unsafe wiring failures. Mold can also develop inside the air handler due to leaks. You should also check the evaporator coil or cooling coil to make sure it’s free of ice and debris and functioning properly.
One of the most common sources of problems associated with heat pump systems is a malfunctioning thermostat. Malfunctioning heat pumps may fail to cool or heat properly, cycle too frequently, freeze up, make excessive noise or have blower issues. If the heat pump fails to kick on at the set temperature, then the fuse may be blown. If a new filter doesn't fix the heating or cooling issues, then the blower might need to be replaced.
Many of the heating and cooling combination units are gas packages designed for rooftops. These units maximize efficiency and are completely self-contained. In order to function properly, these units need regular maintenance services. Combination units need regular tune-ups so that parts inside can be replaced before they begin to break down or malfunction.
