A functioning HVAC system is essential to a comfortable Midland, Georgia, home. If you notice certain things that indicate your HVAC system isn’t running efficiently, you should schedule an HVAC maintenance visit. Here are the following signs that can indicate a problem with your HVAC system’s efficiency:
Obnoxious Noises from the Furnace
Furnace maintenance is paramount to home safety. Strange noises from the furnace may indicate malfunctioning parts, cracks, or insufficient combustion air in the vicinity of the furnace. If you have any concerns about your furnace, it’s always best to call a professional immediately. A problem with a furnace could result in a house fire, carbon monoxide poisoning or other serious problems.
Rising Energy Bills
Energy bills will likely rise in the months with extreme temperatures as the system works harder to keep your home comfortable. To reduce the impact on your bills, make sure doors and windows are properly insulated, and consider adjusting your thermostat. An increase in your energy bills without an obvious cause may indicate a problem with your HVAC system. There may be cracks or leaks in the system, or there may be parts that aren’t functioning at their highest capacity.
A Decline in Air Quality
If you notice a decline in your home’s air quality, your dirty air filters could be to blame. The air moving through your unit moves through these filters, which take unwanted impurities out of the air. Filters pick up dust, pet dander, pollen, and many allergens. Homes that have pets or are in dusty environments may need to change the filters more often to ensure the efficiency of their unit.
If you notice any problems with your HVAC system, call a professional to check all the components and get it back to working condition. You can also schedule routine maintenance to prevent minor issues from becoming major problems. Call Climate Control Heating & Air Conditioning at 706-405-4796 for routine maintenance, repairs, and emergency services.
