HVAC And When To Call In The Pros

HVAC And When To Call In The Pros

Safe furnace workIf you're a homeowner, the internet can be a great source of comfort when it comes to tackling do-it-yourself maintenance. Yes, Google can show you the simple steps to replace a furnace filter, but most other HVAC repairs are not of the DIY variety. Here's what to watch out for and when to call in the professionals:

Unusual Noises
Modern, efficient heating and cooling systems should run almost silently. When you hear whistling, rattling, squealing, or knocking during operation, there's likely a problem. You can inspect the system yourself, but chances are you don't know much about the components inside your air conditioner or furnace. Rather than putting the safety of you and your family at risk, it's better to let an expert HVAC repair contractor take care of it.

Nasty Odors
When an air conditioning unit or heating system is working correctly, you shouldn't be able to smell it. If there is an unpleasant odor emitted, something is wrong. Your first step should be a filter replacement, but if the smell persists you likely have mold growing, a damaged air duct, or a clogged drainpipe. Each of these situations will require a thorough cleaning of the unit and the eye of an expert tech.

Improper Airflow
Clogs, blockages, and leaks can all lead to decreased airflow in your heating and cooling systems, causing them to run less efficiently and shortening their lifespan. Qualified HVAC repair technicians have the experience to quickly diagnose and address airflow issues.

Rising Energy Bills
Have you noticed that your energy bills keep going up every month? Unless you're experiencing a big swing in temperatures, increased energy usage means your unit is having to work harder to maintain your desired temperature. By keeping an eye on your utility bills, you can get a tech dispatched and get in front of a total breakdown and the headaches that come when your unit isn't running at all.

A note on hiring the right HVAC company
As with hiring any new contractor, take time to do your due diligence on HVAC service. Not all HVAC companies are the same, and you should never consider only one resource when determining the right one for you. Check credentials, licensing and insurance requirements in your region. Ask around for references and read reviews online. Finally, ask them for an estimate. Many HVAC repair companies will provide these at no cost. Get a quote from several different businesses before choosing one.
