Common Signs of HVAC Problems

If you ever find an HVAC contractor who tells you they have the secret to eliminating HVAC problems entirely, then you’ll know that it’s time to continue your search for a company that you can actually trust. The truth of it is that no one can make your HVAC system reliable. All mechanical systems, heaters and air conditioners included, run into operational problems from time to time. The good news is that you won’t hear such outlandish claims from the pros on our staff.

What you will hear is how you can help to keep any problems with your heating or air conditioning systems to a minimum. While you can’t avoid them entirely, you can limit any damage to your system caused by the problems that you encounter. One way to do this is to schedule your HVAC services in Chesapeake, VA, as soon as you realize they may be necessary. Here are a few red flags to be aware of.

How Much Is Your Comfort Costing You?

We’re not saying that your comfort isn’t worth anything here. Quite the opposite, actually. We think you deserve to be comfortable, and we understand comfort comes at a price. We understand that better than most, actually.

However, you shouldn’t have to overpay for that comfort. If you notice that your heating and cooling costs seem to be spiking, then there is a good chance that you’ve got a system in need of repair. When something goes wrong with a heater or AC, efficiency is one of the first victims.

Uneven Temperatures

Did you used to cool and heat your home successfully? With every area at a comfortable temperature? And no hot or cold spots throughout the house? Have you noticed lately that you’re not able to achieve that same result? Do you fiddle with the thermostat over and over in a vain attempt to keep the whole house comfortable?

If so, give us a call. Anything from refrigerant leaks to damaged air ducts could be to blame. While you may tell yourself that your system is working “well enough,” we urge you to stop settling for less when it comes to your comfort! We’ll figure out precisely what the problem is.

Strange Sounds

Aside from an electric radiant heating system, no heater or AC is really going to function silently. There is a lot of wiggle room between normal operating sounds and alarming noises coming from your system, though.

If your air conditioner or heater is suddenly making strange new sounds, or if your system is making its usual sounds at a much louder volume, it’s a clear sign that it’s time for repairs. Don’t wait for a total breakdown. Get out ahead of the problem.
