Even a minor problem with your heating or air conditioning could become worse and damage your Union Springs, Alabama, home if you don’t have the unit repaired by a professional immediately. If you delay repairs, you could have to replace your HVAC system, or your utility bills could increase. You should also have your home HVAC equipment serviced by an experienced expert at least once a year to prevent problems. If your HVAC system isn’t keeping you comfortable, you hear strange noises, or you notice bad smells, it’s time to contact a professional for repairs.
An Uncomfortable Home
Your HVAC system could need repairs if you have warm or cold areas in your home. You may also notice that your unit turns on and off more often than usual. Check your HVAC system’s air filter and replace the filter if it’s dirty, then remove debris such as leaves, dirt, grass clippings, and twigs from your outdoor unit. Also make sure that all your air registers are open and keep furniture and carpeting away from them. If you still have problems, you could have dirty or leaky ductwork or a problem with your unit’s blower motor.
Your HVAC system should be relatively quiet when operating. Loud pops, banging, or grinding noises are strong signs of trouble. You could also hear buzzing, scurrying, or flapping noises if you have pests in your ductwork. A strange noise could be only a loose screw, but you should have any noises checked by a professional since they could point to major problems.
If your home’s air conditioner isn’t working properly, your indoor humidity will rise, especially during the summer. This rise in humidity can cause mold, mildew, and musty smells. If you smell gas or a burning smell during the winter, leave your home and call a professional immediately.
