Heating and cooling systems work hard to maintain the temperature in your home at comfortable levels and all that strain can eventually cause system components to malfunction. Here are some of the most common signs that indicate some sort of fault:
- Strange noises – clicking, chattering or thumping noises coming from the HVAC call for immediate attention. Whining and sqealing signs coming from the motor indicate worn bearings, while dirty burners may also make strange sounds;
- The cooling or the heating function or the fan won’t turn on or off – this sign usually tells you that there is a problem with the thermostat and need of repair by a Denver AC repair company;
- Inefficient operation and a strange smell – the most likely cause of the issue is a clogged, dirty or worn filter that needs to be replaced immediately;
- Diminished overall performance and hiking energy bills – one of the most common causes behind the problem is aging. HVAC systems include lots of components that can be affected by normal wear and tear, but that continue to work to a certain extent even when they are approaching the end of their lifespan. The replacement of the affected components usually restores the efficiency of the system and will reduce energy bills as well.
