Your HVAC system is one of the most complex systems in your home. While HVAC units are built for extended use, this doesn’t mean that you can keep yours running efficiently without taking good care of it. Here are the four best times to call your local HVAC maintenance experts to come take a look at your system.
The AC Isn’t Blowing Cool Air
The HVAC system cools indoor air by taking in warm air, drawing heat away from it, then distributing it throughout the house. If there’s no cool air coming out of your unit or vents, this could be a sign that your HVAC system has a problem and it’s due for an inspection.
The Unit Is Emitting a Strange Odor
The HVAC unit is designed to control the temperature, but it shouldn’t have a negative effect on how your place smells. This is especially true for HVAC units with integrated air cleaners, which are designed to remove odors and particulates from the air. If you smell something odd coming from your unit, call an expert to have it checked ASAP.
You Hear Squeaking or Rattling
All HVAC units emit sounds and vibrations, but rarely to such an extent that they cause disruptions. If you hear something other than the usual constant hum (like squeaking or rattling noises), this could indicate anything from a broken or loose component to excessive pressure. Turn a noisy HVAC unit off and wait for a certified pro to check your system.
Do you feel like your HVAC system isn’t cooling or heating your home as consistently as it used to? It could be that your system doesn’t have enough power to accommodate your space. If you haven’t changed units recently, this usually means that your current system’s performance is being affected by something. Experts on ACs and gas furnaces can take a look at your system to see how it can be restored to its original output.
