Does your home have an outdated thermostat? Contrary to common belief, you don’t have to replace your entire heating, ventilation, and cooling (HVAC) system.
A programmable thermostat allows homeowners to adjust the heating and cooling settings for specific times of the day without the need for manual adjustments.
Learning how to do your own preventive maintenance can maximize efficiency.
With New Jersey’s cold and stinging winters, the last thing you want is to face a mid-season HVAC repair. While we can’t predict the future here at Green Apple Mechanical NJ, we can advise you on some of the signs and sounds that alert you that a heat pump repair or furnace repair is imminent.
False Airflow Temperatures
If your furnace or air conditioner has its seasons mixed up, there’s no question you’ll need a furnace repair or air conditioner repair. A furnace throwing out cold air can indicate a malfunctioning thermostat, problems with the ignition system, or an overheating heat exchanger. An Air conditioner unit circulating warm air can announce a refrigerant leak or compressor issue.
When HVAC equipment operates efficiently, it makes a soothing background hum. Squeaks and squeals along with banging and clanging are a clear warning that something is wrong. Issues can range from worn-out belts to broken fan blades or disconnected ductwork. Just as you keep a watchful eye on your equipment through regular maintenance, develop a keen ear for sudden or unusual noises. The sooner you notice them, the better your chances are that you’ll have only a minor furnace or heat pump repair.
Aromas are pleasant. Odors are not and frequently signal the need for immediate action. A burning smell could mean frayed or loose wiring. The smell of nail polish remover can point to a refrigerant leak and the stench of rotten eggs is evidence of a possible gas leak in your furnace.

With a smart thermostat or a programmable one, you have the ability to program temperatures in your home based on the time of day or day of the week, allowing you to not cool and heat your home when you’re not in it.
Your home’s heating and air conditioning use almost half of your home’s energy, so it makes sense to maximize your HVAC unit’s efficiency.
To keep operating costs down, all of your HVAC components need to be running efficiently and this includes your home thermostat.
If a furnace is not producing heat, it is often a cause for alarm, but in many instances, it might not be that big of an issue.
An old, inefficient, and noisy HVAC unit may indicate that you need to replace it.
Many homeowners spend too much time adjusting their thermostats to compensate for the unpredictable change in temperature.
