Like your car, your heating and cooling system requires regular maintenance to keep it running smoothly. Without regular tune-ups, breakdowns are bound to happen, which can lead to costly repairs or even replacement – and the last thing you want is to be stuck in the New England summer heat without air conditioning.
Are you thinking about skipping that AC tune-up? Look at our list of problems that arise when you don’t properly maintain your HVAC system:
A tell-tale sign of air conditioning problems is a strange noise from the unit. These sounds could be a faint whistling sound or a louder buzzing or banging noise. In any event, get your unit checked if it starts making noises.
Warm and Humid Air Inside
If your AC isn’t working correctly, it can lead to sticky, humid air. If your air filter needs to be changed, or you are low on refrigerant, it could lead to your air conditioner blowing warm air through your home. You might also notice more humidity inside the house.
If there’s water leaking from your unit, it could be a refrigerant leak – and that can be expensive to fix if it gets bad enough. Regular maintenance can catch problems like this before they turn into more significant issues.
High Utility Bills
Your utility bills could increase if your cooling system is not operating efficiently. If your AC isn’t cooling correctly, it will continue to run to keep up (and run up those energy costs in the process). Age and usage also play a factor. The best way to keep your system at peak efficiency is with regular maintenance.
