Is your CONDO HVAC system NOT working? What to Do When Your Condo HVAC System Stops Working

solutions for condo hvac issues

Why condo HVAC is not working? In most cases, condo residents are responsible for in-suite heating and air conditioning problems in Toronto and the GTA. It can be frustrating to deal with a broken HVAC unit, especially during the coldest or hottest times of the year, and finding the right condo HVAC technician can be difficult. Before you call a licensed repair technician, try these three common solutions:

  1. Reset your system from the electrical breaker panel box: Locate the breaker switch that belongs to your HVAC unit and turn it off and on after a few seconds to allow your HVAC system to reboot itself. Keep in mind that there may be a time delay on the thermostat, so wait for at least 20 minutes before you test the heating or cooling again.

  2. Check if the filter is dirty: A dirty filter can restrict air circulation, leading to high pressure on the system and ultimately causing it to shut off. If you have a fan coil system, a dirty filter could even cause the fan motor to burn out.

  3. Check your building's common area for an emergency notice: Building managers or superintendents often post-emergency announcements in common areas of buildings, such as lobbies or elevators. These notices can inform residents of building-wide shutdowns due to emergencies, maintenance, or an annual switchover from heating to cooling or cooling to heating. In-suite HVAC systems connected to the building's central pumps, boilers, or chiller systems can be affected by these mechanical problems until they are fully addressed. If you're unsure whether the problem is a building issue or an in-suite HVAC problem, contact a condo HVAC specialist.

When to Call a Professional for Your Condo's HVAC Problems?

If you're experiencing HVAC problems in your condo, here are some common issues:

  • No heating or air conditioning

  • Insufficient airflow or no airflow

  • Banging sounds or noise problems

  • A water leak or flood in the suite

  • bad musty smell or burning smell from the HVAC system.

  • The digital thermostat is not connected or displaying anything on the screen.
