Why you need to consider a maintenance agreement to prevent these important signs of HVAC inefficiency.
Do you have a maintenance agreement for your HVAC system? If you did, you probably wouldn’t be reading this, so let’s get to the point: your HVAC system might not be working as effectively as it could be. How can you tell? Take a look at these four signs:
Sign #1: Your Bills Are Rising as Fast as the Summer Temps
Have you noticed your energy bills are rising? Don’t dismiss it as a necessary side effect of summer cooling. If you notice a significant rise in your utility bills this summer over last, it could be that your HVAC system isn’t working effectively.
Sign #2: Inconsistencies in Temperature
Is your master bedroom hotter than your guest bedroom? Does the kitchen feel great in the morning and unbearably hot in the afternoon? Inconsistent temperatures throughout your house are another sign that your HVAC isn’t working as well as it could be.
Sign #3: It’s Not the Heat, It’s the Heat and the Humidity
A humid house in the summer is a big bummer. But if your air conditioner isn't working right, it won't pull as much moisture from the air, making your house feel warm and muggy. The higher the humidity, the warmer it feels. And the higher the humidity, the harder it is for your AC to work to cool the house, especially if your system isn't working right.
Sign #4: On Then Off Then On Then Off…
If you notice your HVAC system is turning on and off way too frequently, it's a sign that your air conditioner isn't functioning properly. It could be that the thermostat needs calibration. Maybe there's an issue with the compressor. The air filter could be dirty and clogged. You could have a frozen evaporator coil, or your refrigerant could be low.
What do all these signs of a poorly functioning HVAC have in common? Regular maintenance could have prevented all of them. It's time to contact the team at H.H. Hovey Heating and Cooling to get the best maintenance agreement for your HVAC system.
