Our North Texas summers are hard on a HVAC system, and with those sweltering months approaching it is a perfect time to make sure that your heating and air conditioning system is fully primed and ready to go. You might think your system is okay, but professional care is the best way to ensure your system will continue to provide optimum performance. A trained and licensed HVAC professional can make sure your system is performing as it should and will be able to detect and avert any developing problems. Sometimes your system will leave you with no doubt that professional HVAC help is needed.
If you suddenly get a huge electric or gas bill, first check with your energy provider to make sure readings are correct. However, issues pop up with HVAC systems that sometimes cause them to use too much energy.
Once you’ve lived in your home for a few months, especially over a summer, you know what to expect from your HVAC system. If you find that your air conditioner is not cooling as it should, or you need to lower the temperature more than usual, there is a problem somewhere in the system. There are several reasons this could occur, such as refrigerant problems or maybe even a dirty filter. Your HVAC technician will be able to accurately diagnose the problem.
Strange Sounds or Odors
If you hear unusual noises when your HVAC system cycles on and off, this is a clear sign of a problem. Modern heating systems should run quietly and should not be loud when they turn on and off. If you smell a burning odor in your air for more than a few minutes after turning on the unit, turn it off and contact your HVAC professional immediately, as this could be a sign of an electrical problem that could lead to a fire.
Don’t ignore changes in the way your HVAC system operates. Contact an HVAC professional as soon as possible to prevent higher energy bills or damage to your system or home. Speedy’s experienced and friendly professionals are here for you to help keep your home as comfortable as it can be this summer!
