Through routine inspection and maintenance, AC and heating repair technicians can detect and address underlying issues with your HVAC system before it breaks down. However, in some cases certain HVAC components can malfunction, necessitating HVAC service calls.
Here are the most common reasons behind HVAC service calls:
A malfunctioning thermostat. Poor indoor airflow, or more specifically, dirty air filters, are usually the culprits behind hot and cold spots. However, if there are still hot or cold spots in your home even after your air filter has been changed, your thermostat might be to blame.
Before calling an HVAC technician, you should check if the thermostat’s settings are set correctly, or perhaps try replacing its batteries. If these don’t fix the problem, you should contact an HVAC technician.
Unusual noises. Different sounds indicate different problems with your HVAC system. For instance, squealing sounds are usually a sign that your HVAC system’s inducer motor or blower motor are starting to break down, while rattling noises indicate that some HVAC components have become loose. As a rule, if you hear any strange noises coming from your HVAC system, you should have an HVAC and air conditioning repair contractor inspect the unit as soon as possible.
Water leaks. Water leaks usually indicate that there’s something wrong with your HVAC unit’s drainage system. However, the leaks could also be coming from other parts of the HVAC system such as the heat exchanger, evaporator drain and collector box. Of course, the only way to find the true source of these leaks is to schedule an HVAC inspection.
One more thing: It’s easy to miss the early warning signs of HVAC damage, which is why only experienced HVAC technicians should handle inspections.
