No one wants to be left without a working HVAC system. Thankfully, most HVAC systems will give you quite a few warning signs before it completely fails. If you get routine HVAC maintenance by a licensed technician, these problems can be caught before they become a costly repair. It also helps if you are aware of the subtle signs so you can find them quickly. Here are the HVAC warning signs you should be on the look out for.
If you have had your HVAC system for a while, you should know what it sounds like when it is in use. If you suddenly notice weird, different, or louder noises suddenly coming from your heating or cooling system, call an HVAC contractor as soon as possible. Those new noises could be a sign that something is broken or loose on your unit that needs repair.
If the temperature on your thermostat is not the temperature in your home, you may need to have your unit inspected. When an HVAC system needs repair, it may suddenly not be as efficient at cooling or heating your home. Don’t just set your thermostat cooler or warmer. Ignoring this problem will waste energy and may damage your HVAC system.
Increasing Energy Bills
If your energy bills have suddenly increased with no explanation, your HVAC system may be to blame. When an HVAC system stops being as energy efficient, your utility bills will start to reflect it.
If your HVAC system is more than 15-20 years old, it may be time for a replacement. Older systems aren’t as efficient and may end up costing you more in the long run. If you aren’t sure which system would be best for your home, Western Heating and Air can assist you.
