Halloween can be both a fun and a scary holiday, but when it comes to your HVAC system, disturbing issues or signs of trouble around Halloween are nothing less than horrifying. In this post, A-1 Comfort Care — one of the area’s top HVAC installation contractors — lists some common HVAC horror stories and shares tips on how you can avoid them.
Creepy noises. When you start hearing strange sounds coming from your air conditioning system, this usually means that either some components have become loose or the system has become infested with rodents or insects. Make sure to have your cooling system checked by a professional to avoid expensive repairs and high electric bills — another type of horror that you’ll surely want to avoid.
Filthy ducts. Regular maintenance of your air conditioner should be performed in order to prevent the buildup of dust, dirt and other contaminants in your ducts. Enlist professional residential HVAC services to ensure that tasks such as duct cleaning are done properly. Otherwise, allergens and dust mites will affect not just the performance of your air conditioning system, but your home’s indoor air quality and your family’s health as well.
Mechanical issues. Mechanical problems, such as belt misalignment, can also occur if you neglect the upkeep of your cooling system. Remember that your air conditioner’s moving parts will wear out over time, but they’ll deteriorate much more quickly if they don’t receive proper care on a regular basis. Furthermore, such mechanical issues can eventually lead to damaged motors, reduced airflow and inefficiency.
