Signs Your HVAC System Requires Professional Maintenance

HVAC maintenance

You likely rarely think twice about the condition of your HVAC system when you're adjusting the thermostat and changing your home's climate with ease. However, just because your HVAC system is out of sight doesn't mean it should be out of mind! It's important to schedule regular maintenance so you'll never have to worry about an unexpected breakdown, ineffective heating or cooling, or unnecessarily high energy bills.

We get it; life happens, and if you aren't signed up for an HVAC maintenance program, scheduling professional maintenance and tune-ups can occasionally slip your mind. Here's how to know when your unit has gone too long without professional attention!

Weak Airflow

There's nothing quite as frustrating as adjusting your thermostat only to be met with an insufficient flow of air throughout your home. If you can't remember the last time your unit was serviced and are met with poor airflow, it's likely your unit is in dire need of some TLC. Poor airflow can source from a wide range of issues within your home's HVAC system, so it's best to have our professionals come to take a look to assess the unit and provide a lasting solution.

Unusual Noises

We're all accustomed to the light hum that comes with a temperature adjustment or starting the furnace for the first time of the season. However, if you hear unusual noises from your HVAC system, don't let the noises go on without scheduling professional maintenance! Strange noises like hissing or banging should not be ignored, as they're often telltale signs of an underlying issue. Catching potential repairs as early as possible is essential, especially if you're hoping to avoid a system breakdown or significant damage to the unit.

Inconsistent Temperatures

One of the most convenient advantages of HVAC systems is that you're able to maintain a steady, even temperature throughout your home. When your heating and cooling system fails to maintain a stable temperature in every area of the house, you know it's been too long since your last service appointment. If it's been over a year since a professional has inspected your unit, it's due time to schedule a tune-up! Keep your home's temperatures balanced by following up with regular maintenance.

Spiked Energy Costs

Suppose you've been doing everything in your power and following every energy-saving trick in the book to keep your home's utility costs low, only to receive a shocking energy bill in the mail each month. Have you considered regular professional HVAC maintenance for your home?

Your heating and cooling system is responsible for most of your energy consumption, so ensuring your system is in good working order can help alleviate some unnecessary energy costs. Remember: an HVAC system that is not maintained will not be energy-efficient!

You Have an Older Unit

Every HVAC system will require maintenance from time to time, but if your system is older than ten years, it's imperative to follow up with seasonal maintenance. As the years go on, the summers get hotter, the winters get colder, and your system will continue to age, in turn losing efficiency. Your older unit could use a hand, and scheduling professional maintenance is ideal for extending its lifespan to its fullest!
