Six Signs You Should Repair Your HVAC System
If you’re unsure whether or not your HVAC system needs repairs, we’ve created a list below of six signs you should repair your HVAC system:
- Reduced Efficiency: If your home isn’t staying as comfortable as it once did, whether it’s too hot in the summer or too cold in the winter, there is likely a problem with your HVAC system.
- Strange Sounds: When there’s a problem with your HVAC unit, you may notice loud banging noises, whistling, or even groaning noises. These are telltale signs that repairs are needed.
- Strange Smells: If you start to smell mold or mildew in your home, there’s a good chance it could be coming from your HVAC system, primarily if it hasn’t been serviced in some time.
- Power Loss: If your HVAC unit abruptly shuts off, this is most certainly a sign that repairs are needed. Contact First Call Heating & Cooling as soon as possible.
- Inconsistent Air Flow: When your home starts to feel stuffier than normal suddenly, it’s a good indication that repairs might be needed for your HVAC unit.
- Sudden High Energy Bills: If you notice a sudden change in your energy bills, such as they are drastically higher than normal, there could be something wrong with your HVAC unit.
Should I Repair or Replace My HVAC System?
This is a common question – and it’s always a good thing to have a professional weigh in on the answer. The first step in answering this question comes from knowing the lifespan of your unit. For most air conditioners and furnaces, units last between 15 and 20 years. If your HVAC system is older than 20 years, it’s time for a replacement. However, suppose your unit is 15 years old or younger. In that case, several factors need to be considered when asking if you need a repair or replacement, such as heating effectiveness and safety. If your unit is deemed unsafe or is not heating your home adequately, a replacement might be necessary, especially if repairs didn’t solve the problem at hand.
