Keeping your HVAC system running is important year-round. That said, relying on it too often can lead to unintended consequences. At some point, preventive maintenance is essential – that way, potential malfunctions, breakdowns, and downtime can be avoided. Let’s find out more!
Your residential HVAC system will make noises as it runs. This is bound to happen anyway, and it shouldn’t be a cause for alarm. Two odd sounds that do happen should concern you though – in this case, listen for grinding or rattling. These sounds indicate that repairs are in order. Getting the system analyzed for problems and any errors fixed right away is crucial.
Uneven Heating Throughout the Home
Fall is almost over and winter is fast approaching. Some days are still going to feel warm, mainly due to humidity. On colder days, you are going to want to turn up the heat, even if bundling up feels cozy as well. However one of the most common problems that homeowners encounter with their residential HVAC systems is uneven heating. There should not be unequal heating throughout your home. Even though heat rises, the lower floors and the basement should be as nice and toasty as the rooms upstairs. Low heating or no heating represents two other issues that should be rectified as soon as possible. After all, air ducts, burners, and pipes all needed to inspected from time to time. Top-tier HVAC technicians can determine what is going on and how to fix the problems that they found.
Energy Bills Keep Rising
For the most part, your energy bills every month should remain stable. Unusual fluctuations can be a headache, especially if you cannot schedule recurring payments because the amounts you owe are always different. Unexpected spikes in energy usage are another indicator that something could be wrong. Dust, debris, and germs can jam up the air filters tucked inside your residential HVAC system. Changing the filters is easy, as is resetting the thermostat whenever necessary. However, making more profound adjustments or preventive maintenance calls for professional expertise.
