According to the Air Conditioning Contractors of America, 76 million U.S. homes use central air conditioning equipment. Whether you are cooling your home in the summer or heating your home in the winter, your HVAC system is working hard year-round to ensure your home remains comfortable for your family. To ensure your HVAC system continues running smoothly, look for the following signs that indicate it is time to call an HVAC service.
High Energy Bills
If your energy bills have suddenly skyrocketed, it is smart to contact an HVAC company right away. Professional technicians have the experience and understanding of HVAC systems to be able to diagnose the issue. This way, you are not overspending on heating and cooling your home when you do not have to.
Poor Air Flow
There is nothing worse than turning on your heat and not feeling any warmth when you re chilly. If your HVAC system’s air flow is weak, the unit’s fan may be malfunctioning or the filter may be clogged. Either way, an HVAC service can help!
Noisy HVAC System
If your unit is banging or hissing, HVAC repairs may be necessary. While these noises may seem minor, they can be a sign of or lead to bigger and costlier repairs.
If your HVAC system takes a while to boot up after being turned on or seems to take a while to actually warm or cool your home, these may be indicators of trouble. When efficiency is lacking, it is best to contact an HVAC service you trust to diagnose the issue that is causing a lag.
If your HVAC system is more than 10 years old or it has been over a year since your last tune-up or maintenance check, it is time to get professional HVAC technicians into your home. They can determine whether your system could use a replacement, which will save you money in the long run. When a system is lagging and taking a while to actually warm or cool your home, you are losing money and living in an uncomfortable space.
