How To Know if It’s Time To Replace Your Fan Coil Unit
Posted On: February 10, 2022
A fan coil unit can last up to 10 or 15 years with regular maintenance, but there are several indications that it’s time to replace it. Take note of these three indicators:
Frequent service calls & expensive repair bills: Frequent service calls to repair the motor in a fan coil unit are an indication that it’s breaking down more often.
Uneven temperatures & inability to keep the thermostat’s temperature setting: If you’re having trouble keeping your home or individual rooms at the right temperature, your fan coil may need to be cleaned or checked for a refrigerant leak.
New or increased noise: This can indicate that the motor or blower is worn or damaged.
If you notice any of these signs from your HVAC system, it’s a great idea to call Short Pump Heating & Air to confirm if the fan coil is the issue and if replacing it is the best course of action.
This confirmation will lead to a properly functioning unit, less expensive bills, and a quieter, more comfortable home overall.
