When the weather starts to change, you may find yourself wondering if your home heating or air conditioning unit is going to last through the season. The last thing you want is for your climate control system to fail during the coldest night or the hottest day of the year, leaving you and your family uncomfortable and even in danger. Keep an eye out for any of these symptoms that may indicate it’s time to call a professional to service your HVAC system.
An excessive amount of dust in the air inside your home may be an indication that your air conditioner’s filters are clogged or your ducts are clogged with dirt. If left untreated, this can lead to the main unit overheating and failing completely.
If you find your home isn’t as warm or as cool as it seems like it should be, you may be suffering from a failing central condenser unit. If some area of your home are at a much different temperature than others, the problem may lie with your ducts.
Rattling humming or banging from within your air conditioning or heating unit is generally a bad sign. It may be an indication of an electrical problem and should be dealt with as soon as possible before it causes a serious short. Alternately, a problem with the fan can also cause strange noises.
Even if you haven’t noticed any specific problems with your HVAC unit, many pros recommend getting your heating and cooling system checked out and serviced annually, usually in the spring. This is the best way to prevent any problems later on during the year.
If you suspect a problem with your home HVAC, don’t hesitate. Contact a professional to repair any problems promptly.
