Many homeowners don’t think about their air conditioner until the appliance stops working completely. However, most units give very recognizable signs that a breakdown is imminent – here are some that warn you to get the unit checked by a professional Denver AC repair company to avoid a costly breakdown:
- Climbing utility bills – it is normal to spend more on electricity when your HVAC system works hard to keep your rooms cool when the summer outside is extremely hot or when the winter is extremely cold, but if your energy bills are high and growing even for the months when the weather is mild, it is a clear sign that your HVAC system needs more energy for delivering consistent performance;
- Uneven temperatures in your rooms – the sign indicates that your HVAC cannot maintain consistent temperature throughout the home and that you need to get a service technician to check it as soon as you can;
- Strange noises and odors coming from the unit – these signs might indicate a minor problem, like a clog, but they can also tell you that your HVAC is about to break down, so you should get it serviced ASAP;
- Frequent breakdowns – if your HVAC service technician is a regular guest in your home, it is probably time to start saving for a new unit.
