Spring cleaning is not the same as fixing your HVAC system, but spring is the season to see signs your HVAC needs repair. Here are some common things to look out for before summer.
Warm Air Instead of Cool
It’s miserable on a hot day to have warm air blowing out of your vents instead of cool air. If your AC isn’t blowing out nice, cool air, it’s a sign it might need repair.
Frequent On/Off Cycling
Something is amiss if your air conditioner turns on and off frequently for very short cooling cycles. Not only is it a sign that your system may require repair, but it could also indicate that it’s time to get a new HVAC system.
Out of Control Humidity
One advantage of an air conditioner is that it controls the humidity level in your home. If your home feels extra sticky and humid, your AC isn’t working at peak performance. Recalibration could solve the problem, but the proper diagnosis will determine the right course of action.
Loud or Unusual Noise
Every AC unit makes some noise when it starts and stops, but loud or unusual noises indicate a problem. Buzzing, screeching, grinding, and rattling are all sounds to look out for this spring as you start using your air conditioning system.
Most homeowners can identify when there’s a problem with their heating or air conditioning, but it usually takes an experienced HVAC technician to determine if fixing your HVAC will help or if it’s time to get a new HVAC system.
