HVAC Problems To Be Aware Of In The Fall

Action Air has some tips on how to keep your HVAC running smoothly during the fall months before the cold winter arrives

Refrigerant Leaks

  • As the summer weather cools down in the fall, your HVAC system suffers from a lot of pressure. As a result, the refrigerant pipes may end up leaking causing serious problems. 
  • Solution: Action Air includes this check-up in your regularly scheduled maintenance agreement.


  • Leaf debris reduces airflow, clogs condenser coils, and invites mold and bacteria growth. 
  • Solution: Rake leaves at least once a week. Make sure you rake them away from the outdoor unit to prevent spraying dirt and debris towards them.

Dirty Air Filters

  • Dirty air filters make your HVAC system operate less efficiently.
  • You should change your air filters every 30 to 90 days.
  • This ensures that your system is pumping in clean air into your home.

More solutions:

  • Avoid planting trees or shrubs too close to your HVAC unit.
  • Try to keep a 3-foot cleared area around the compressor at all times.
