3 Common HVAC Malfunctions

When you turn on your heating and cooling systems in your Gainesville home, you can normally count on them to fire right up. However, as with your car or any other heating and cooling gainesvillemajor appliance, there is going to come a time when your heating or cooling system fails to operate as it should. When this happens, it is time to call in the professionals to get your system back up and running. There are several different reasons why your HVAC system could be malfunctioning. At North Central Florida Air Conditioning, we have handled a number of different HVAC issues, but there are some issues that occur more frequently than others.

Blown Fuse

Fuses are designed to keep your unit’s monitor or compressor from overheating. When a monitor or a fuse gets overheated, the fuse will blow and lose its source of electricity so the system does not continue to overheat. When a monitor or compressor is suspected of failing, many technicians will also check the fuses.


It is important to change your system’s air filters regularly. Over time, your system’s air filters will become dirty and clogged. Some systems have reusable filters that can be cleaned and used again. If your filters are not regularly cleaned or changed, they can restrict your system’s airflow and eventually cause your system to freeze up. This is a fairly common occurrence among HVAC problems.

Drain Line

Many times when a system fails, an HVAC technician will check the drain line. This line often becomes clogged with dirt and other sediment or debris. If the drain line becomes clogged, the drain pan will overflow with water, which causes water damage to the system.
