While it is normal for a furnace to make a small amount of noise especially when kicking on, rattling and banging is a big indicator of a much larger issue. Those kinds of noises could mean that there are loose parts or the blower wheel is going bad. Metallic noises, or the sound of metal scraping or banging against metal, is an indicator that the system is in need of emergency heating and AC repair services. Turn the HVAC system off and await further instructions from the technician.
HVAC System Is Constantly Running
When an HVAC system is constantly running, it is a sign that the system is having a difficult time staying at the desired temperature. This also causes unnecessary stress and damage to the system while increasing the electric bill. Regular maintenance and cleaning done by a heating and AC repair technician for your HVAC system will increase the lifespan of the HVAC system.
Undesirable temperatures in the Home
Having your thermostat inspected is a good idea when your home is having issues staying at the desired, set temperature. There is a possibility if only certain rooms are having difficulty staying at the desired temperature that there is simply a leak or blockage in the ductwork. Having a heating and AC repair technician to inspect the system will give you the answers you are looking for. Depending on the age and wear and tear of the HVAC system, there is a possibility that the HVAC system may not be able to do its job properly anymore. In this case, it would need to be replaced.
Skyrocketing Energy Bills
Do you notice your energy bill rising with no let off, even in the milder seasons? This could be a sign that your HVAC system needs to be replaced. Preventive maintenance can only do so much especially on a system that is about 15-20 years old. A professional heating and AC repair technician is the perfect person to access if your HVAC system is running efficiently. Trustworthy technicians won’t let you continue to throw money into a system that is outdated and on its last leg.
