When it comes to your HVAC equipment, it is important to understand what to look for when systems are not running properly. Often times, especially during this time of the year, issues go unnoticed. Trust your senses. Read on to discover which signs should not be ignored and to know when to call an HVAC professional.
1. EXTREME TEMPERATURES
Have you ever tried to fall asleep in an extremely hot or cold room? It can be very uncomfortable and close to impossible to catch some decent shuteye. Just like humans, HVAC systems age. When it seems as though your system is not responding to the thermostat settings, call Bob’s. We are happy to send out a qualified professional to investigate and resolve the issue.
2. CONDENSATION OR LEAKS
Condensation or moisture near your air conditioner can be a pretty serious matter. It could mean one of two things—it may be a refrigerant leak. This means your unit may not be able to put out cool air. On the other hand, it could just mean there is water leaking from the unit. It is a possibility that the AC drain line is blocked or clogged. This can be a serious matter since this can lead to wet air filters, which can create perfect living conditions for mold. Make sure to contact Bob’s as soon as a leak or condensation has been discovered.
3. UNFAMILIAR ODOR
Your sense of smell can come in handy when detecting HVAC issues. When you get close to your equipment, has it ever smelled like something is burning? If yes, the cause of the odor could be from a burnt wire in the insulation. Unfamiliar odors are a good indicator that your HVAC system needs professional care.
