Sometimes, the cost of air conditioning or water heater repair can be enough to convince homeowners to put off calling a pro technician. or worse, to attempt a DIY repair on their own. While it’s true that small, simple problems can be easily taken care of on your own, such as regular filter changes and clearing away debris, in more serious cases it’s better to contact your local HVAC professional.
The problem is, it’s not always clear when you need to call the pros. Here our heating and cooling experts at Tyler share a few signs which may indicate that you need to set up an appointment with your local HVAC company soon.
The Air Conditioner Isn’t Cooling
It’s hard to miss a failing air conditioner. If your unit hasn’t been blowing out cooled air as it normally does, then it’s time to contact a professional AC repair company. The lack of cold air is definitely annoying on its own, but it can also be a sign of a deeper problem with your air conditioner. This problem could be a result of low refrigerant levels or a complete failure of the cooling mechanism.
Smells & Noises
For the most part, strange noises coming from your AC can be explained by a piece of debris that’s gotten lodged in the blower fans or condenser coils. Sometimes, however, it could signify a mechanical issue inside the air conditioning unit itself. The same is true for sudden unpleasant smells emanating from your HVAC system. If either of these cases occur, you need to have your AC inspected by a technician immediately.
High Energy Bills
While the total AC repair cost might seem too expensive, neglecting to repair faulty units will definitely cost you more in the long run. This could be in the form of higher utility bills caused by higher consumption due to an inefficient system, or it could manifest in the form of a full replacement of your HVAC system.
