With proper care and maintenance, your HVAC system should keep you and your family comfortable throughout the spring and summer months. Having it inspected regularly by trusted HVAC installation contractors will also help with this and keep it running in peak condition. But how do you determine if your HVAC system isn’t working efficiently? A-1 Comfort Care shares some of the telltale signs to look out for here:
You’re hearing strange noises. Your HVAC system normally produces a low sound whenever it operates. Any other noise such as clanking, grinding, buzzing, whistling or even rattling, however, can be a strong indicator of a problem within the HVAC system. They can be caused by a faulty electrical component, loose/broken fan blades or some other broken component. If this is the case, shut it down immediately to prevent it from being damaged and have it checked by a professional technician.
Your HVAC system is cycling more frequently. The HVAC system in your home will cycle on and off occasionally depending on how the thermostat reads indoor temperature levels. If you notice that this is happening frequently to your system, the cause might be a faulty thermostat. Over time, daily usage and dust accumulation can wear down a thermostat, so make sure to have it checked by a trusted contractor in air conditioning repair services to address the issue. If it’s found that the thermostat isn’t the cause, they’ll proceed to check the compressor and other components of your HVAC system for any problems.
Reduced airflow/clogged filter. If you’re noticing reduced airflow from your HVAC system, this could indicate a problem with your ductwork or air filter. The filter needs to be cleaned and replaced regularly to ensure clean, steady airflow; otherwise, your HVAC system will work harder than it should and consume more energy. If your HVAC system still produces weak airflow despite replacing the air filter, then there may be a problem with your fan motor, which will require professional repair.
