Know When to Call for HVAC Repairs
Signs Your HVAC Unit Needs Repaired
HVAC systems are designed to work as one cohesive unit. When one part starts to fail, it can damage other parts of your system. A refrigerant leak can cause your unit to work harder and longer than its design capacity. A blocked filter can cause your blower motor to wear out, and a thermostat problem can result in your home being too cold or too hot or the unit failing to turn off or on.
Common signs of HVAC trouble include odd smells and noises, inconsistent temperatures throughout your home and warmer or colder than normal air coming from your vents. If you experience any of these problems, it is important to call a professional HVAC repair company for a thorough diagnostic, repair estimate and servicing.
Importance of Regular HVAC Maintenance
To prevent problems with your Denver furnace or air conditioning unit and avoid exorbitant HVAC repair costs, you should schedule regular maintenance at least once a year and preferably twice a year. HVAC maintenance programs are designed to look for common problems, including leaks, blown fuses, dirty filters, improperly functioning thermostats and worn contactors. They also involve cleaning certain parts of your system and checking flu vents and hoses and ensuring proper electrical function.
A twice a year maintenance program allows for the winterization of your air conditioner or swamp cooler in the fall, and it helps guarantee that your furnace will function all winter long. In the spring, the program helps ensure that your air conditioner is working properly and that your furnace, boiler or other heating device is properly shut off and clean.
