A well-maintained HVAC system should work without any problems for at least fifteen years. Unfortunately, since many homeowners underestimate the importance of regular upkeep, most HVAC systems fail long before they reach their lifespan. But, before it fails, an HVAC unit may show many signs that it needs professional intervention. Being familiar with these signs can help you avoid the need for additional AC and heating repair services. So, without any further ado, here are some of the most common signs that your heating and cooling unit may need professional intervention.
Every HVAC system makes certain sounds when operating. However, if you notice anything unusual, then you should have the problem further inspected. There are a few things you can do on your own before you call a specialist. For instance, you can remove the front cover of your unit and look for any loose or broken parts. If everything looks fine, then consider lubricating the moving parts such as the bearings of the motor. If none of this helps, then call a professional.
Since most of your HVAC piping system is confined between the walls and ceilings of your house, it’s quite hard to detect a leak on time. Sometimes, it may take days until homeowners realize that their systems are losing refrigerant. If a unit runs for too long without refrigerant, it can develop severe damage. So, in order to avoid a rather expensive AC and heating repair, we strongly suggest you check the level of your system’s refrigerant on a regular basis. Basically, the refrigerant level should stay the same at all times. If you notice an unusual drop, then you may have a leak in the system.
