Calling an HVAC Professional

Calling an HVAC Professional

Huntsville and Madison County has 50 to 75% humidity year-round, which means the summers are muggy and the winters can be bitter cold. Humidity impacts everything in a home, from the drywall to the flooring and air vents. It is important to have an HVAC professional check out a home’s air and heating system periodically to be sure there is no damage from the extra moisture.

More importantly, homeowners should have a professional HVAC contractor check out their heating and air conditioning systems at the first sign of trouble. When these systems are not working properly, it can cause your energy and power bills to skyrocket. Before you are hit with a huge gas bill from a broken furnace, call a professional.

Signs Your System Isn’t Okay

Not all heating and air problems are the same. However, most problems have similar symptoms. The first and most obvious sign an air conditioner or furnace isn’t working correctly is if the air temperature in the home suddenly changes. If everyone inside is freezing even though the heater is running nonstop, it is time to call a professional.

Unusual sounds are another sign your HVAC system is not working properly. Sometimes an air conditioner will make a loud, deep sound before the air kicks on. Sometimes it will make a clicking or grinding noise. Any sound that is out of the ordinary warrants calling a professional.

Another sign that your heater or air conditioner may not be in proper working order is water leaks. If you notice water leaks next to the system outside or anywhere inside your home, have it checked out. Water damage can be costly, especially if water gets inside the walls or flooring of a home.

Paying to inspect a problem is much cheaper than paying for new drywall or flooring later.

Regular Maintenance Visits

Having your air conditioner and heater checked regularly is wise. A professional, certified technician will check for leaks or problems and suggest ways you can save money. It is cheaper in the long run to pay for occasional maintenance visits than it is to replace a whole system.
