We will soon be in the midst of the hottest month of the year – August. A/C units will be working overtime and that means there could be issues that pop up that mean it’s time for an urgent call to Be Cool. It’s important to know the 5 signs your HVAC system is breaking down so that we can make the necessary repairs before the problem worsens.
Here are 5 things to lookout for.
1. AIRFLOW ISSUES
You’ll notice these right away. Decreases in airflow or sporadic intervals could mean your HVAC system is breaking down from age or working too hard.
2. DRAINAGE PROBLEMS
A drainage problem is generally hard to catch because most homeowners aren’t familiar with where or what to look for. Water should not be pooling up anywhere around your unit or in the drain/drip pan. If you see this in any capacity, please reach out.
3. LEAKING GAS SMELL
If your HVAC unit is hooked up to gas and you smell sulfur, take the issue seriously, vacate and call the gas company. There could be an issue with your unit, gas line or both.
4. OVERHEATING SMELL
Have a burning smell while the unit is running? Don’t hesitate to call us. It could be an electrical issue that could lead to a fire.
5. MUSTY SMELL
Musty smell = mold. If there is moisture trapped in your HVAC system it creates the perfect environment for mold spores. Living in Houston it’s even more of an issue and danger to your health.
