Fixing up the Blowers in Your HVAC System

The blower is one of the most important components of any heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system. It generates the temperature-regulated airflow required of the entire system, and helps circulate the airflow all over the structure. However, wintertime is often the most brutal period for HVAC systems.
In the northern climes, for example, the system is put on a higher setting as the temperatures drop. Hence, winter is not a good time to see your HVAC system conk out in the middle of a bad snowstorm. The warmer months, therefore, will be the right time to fix or replace the HVAC system before the mercury creeps south.
The team from your preferred HVAC contractor can come over to inspect the entire system in addition to replacing the blower motor. For the motor assembly, the electrical connections to it should be shut off at the circuit breaker level to prevent accidental electrocution. Consult the user manual for proper instructions on stripping the assembly and wire layout.

Take note that if the blower’s motor is the only problem in the system, it’ll have to be replaced with a similar model. Your contractor can help by determining the proper specs, such as horsepower, motor diameter, and rotation speed. The right model should be brought along to prevent hassles with the installation.
