4 Signs That You Need a HVAC Tune Up

Just how we need yearly doctors’ appointments and checkups, so do our HVAC units. It is important that you have your unit inspected annually for tune ups and simple repairs that may be needed. We are here to give you a few signs that may arise when it is time for you to get a HVAC tune up or call our professionals.

You Have Not Had a HVAC Tune Up in Awhile

Although this may seem like common sense, if you haven’t had a tune up in a while this is a very simple sign that it is probably time for one. Taking the measure to have annual tune ups could save you a lot of money in the long run. Yearly tunes ups help to fix the small problems in order to prevent larger ones from happening.

HVAC Unit is Loud or Making Strange Sounds

Have you noticed your HVAC unit is getting louder or making sounds it wasn’t making before? This might be a sign that your unit needs a simple tune up or that more serious problems are occurring. Usually signs like this indicate that something has come loose or needs fixed. Loose parts in your HVAC unit can be potential fire hazards. If you start hearing these sounds call a professional right away to get a tune up and prevent worse damage from occurring.

High Energy Bills are a Sign You Need a HVAC Tune Up

When your AC is not running as efficiently as it used to, that means it is having to work harder to produce the same results. This can lead to increased operating costs and higher energy bills. You should keep an eye on your bills because this can indicate that your HVAC unit is not working properly or effectively. If it is an unusually hot summer, this could be a potential reason as to the rise of your bills, however most of the time we find that it is because units are in need to a tune up. It is important to schedule these yearly tune ups to ensure your unit works effectively and keeps your bills as low as possible.

Weak or No Airflow

There are a few factors that can lead to weak or no airflow. A failing compressor is a major problem we run in to which is a big contributor in low airflow. With a failing compressor, this also means that there will be very little cold air since it affects its ability to cool down the air. Another factor to take into consideration would be blockages due to clogged filters and ducts. This clogging can prevent proper air flow and may also cause debris and allergens to build up in your air. Having this inspected by our professionals can help with airflow, the coolness of your air, and the quality of your air.

Whether you air conditioner is making weird noises, producing little air flow, or your bills are higher than normal, a tune up could be exactly what your unit needs. Our professionals are here to help with any HVAC needs. Whether that be repairs, maintenance, installation, or a HVAC tune up our trusted technicians can get the job done. We take pride in the results we provide our customers with, so call Nelson Comfort today.
