Be on the lookout for these warning signs that indicate your heating and air conditioning system is about to fail.
There’s no better sound than that of your heating and air conditioning system clicking on during a hot day. But, if you’re not careful, your AC may malfunction and leave you in the sweltering heat. To prevent this from happening, be on the lookout for these potential problems that may indicate your system is on its last leg:
1. Weak Airflow Coming from the Vents
When you turn on the air conditioner, can you feel a powerful flow of air coming from the vents or is it weak? A decrease in the amount of cold air may be a symptom of a much larger problem. Before a complete breakdown, it might be a good idea to replace the unit so that your family isn’t without cool air during the hottest months of the year.
2. Sudden Increase in the Energy Bill
As a homeowner, you should notice certain trends in your energy bill throughout the year. Of course, you expect to owe the electric company more during the summer, but what it if your bill is out of control? A sudden and unexpected surge in your energy usage is a good sign that you need to update your system. As the years pass, even the best systems become less energy efficient. Unless you want to keep sending your entire paycheck to the utility company, it’s time for an upgrade.
