York Parts

York HVAC equipment relies on a deeply interwoven system of mechanical and electronic parts that must operate under stressful conditions. Extreme temperature conditions can degrade component parts, leading them to malfunction or break.

What are some of the common problems with HVAC systems?

To help you troubleshoot your HVAC system and figure out where the problem may lie, here are the products and parts that seem to have the most common issues.

  • Heat pump—A common problem with heat pumps is a malfunctioning thermostat. If the thermostat is faulty or broken, there may be intermittent cycling by the unit, it might not heat or cool your home correctly or it may not run at all.
  • Air handler—This device handles all the incoming and outgoing air for the heat pump and can become clogged with dust and debris, inhibiting air flow. There are also evaporator coils inside the unit that can freeze up, causing damage to the compressor.
  • Furnace—If your furnace doesn't seem to be pumping out an expected level of air, it could mean the blower motor is failing, but more commonly, it means that the air filter is clogged with particulates and needs to be changed.
  • Air conditioner—One problem air conditioners can experience, especially when they are overused, is frozen coils. This will stop cold air from being blown out of the air conditioner and can damage the compressor.
  • Space heater—Space heaters are electrically powered and have circuitry inside them that can burn out, causing the heater to stop working. They also have a cut-off switch if the unit gets too hot, and this could also be a reason the space heater won't run.

Diagnosing igniter problems in a gas furnace

If your furnace will not fire up, the igniter may be faulty. In diagnosing this possible problem, you should first make sure that the circuit breaker hasn't already been tripped. Turn off the circuit breaker if it hasn't been tripped so that you can access the furnace safely. Open up the burner door to expose both the burner box and the igniter. Remove the burner box and door. Reset the igniter by switching it to the "off" position for five minutes. Replace the burner box and door and switch the circuit breaker back on. If this doesn't work, repeat the process. If it still won't turn on, then the igniter will probably need to be replaced.
