We love to stay cool during the warm summer months.
A whopping 90% of Americans use air conditioning units to cool down their homes and in New Mexico, summer requires an AC or swamp cooler. We enjoy having our living spaces cooled to exactly the temperature we want them at. HVACs are usually dependable units that typically function for years without a hiccup. So much so that we often fail to notice the system’s warning signs. However, you must catch the problems early on to avoid complete unit failure.
Our HVAC repair guide will help. Keep reading to find out about the top signs that your air conditioning unit needs HVAC repair, maintenance, or replacement.
If you notice your electrical bill is rising without any extra usage, you may have an issue with your HVAC system.
This might occur because of a broken thermostat, a problem with your ductwork, or the wear and tear on older HVAC units. It’s important to have an HVAC repair company inspect your air conditioning system to fix the issue.
A problem with an HVAC unit might lead to inconsistencies with the room temperatures in your home. This is felt when going from room to room or even from one floor to the next. Inconsistent temperatures are due to decreased airflow and signal a need for a repairman to come and check it out.
HVAC systems are built to remove humidity from the air of your home. If you notice excess moisture build-up in your home, this is a warning sign that your HVAC is not functioning properly.
Too much humidity in your home can lead to mold and mildew growth, which, when left untreated, can be harmful to you and your family. To find the source of the problem, contact an HVAC repair firm.
Maybe you notice the temperature in your home isn’t as cold as usual. Or maybe the airflow coming from the vents feels weaker than usual. There might be an issue with the compressor or with the ductwork. Your best bet is to call an HVAC repair service to get to the problem and fix it.
An unexpected accumulation of dust in your home could mean your HVAC system or the ductwork needs to be cleaned and re-sealed.
Call a repairman to check on the source of the dust and to verify if there is any additional dust in the air vents. Sometimes the air filter in your HVAC unit is dirty and needs replacing.
If you called the repair team several times over the course of a few years, it is time to invest in a new HVAC unit. Most HVAC systems need replacement after eight to ten years. Contact your HVAC repair company—Manufacturer rebates and energy efficiency incentives may be available.
Now that you have read our HVAC repair tips, you will recognize the warning signs. Keep an eye out for temperature changes, airflow issues, and other clues your unit needs HVAC repairs.
