Recognizing Signs of Problems with Your HVAC

If you have problems with your HVAC system, the worst time to find out is when your AC goes out on the hottest day of the year. Fortunately, you can head off this unwelcome surprise by paying close attention to signs that trouble is brewing with your HVAC system. If you spot these signs, call your HVAC repair tech to have your system inspected and any necessary repairs made.

Musty Odors

When your AC kicks on, does the air start to smell musty? If you, so you could have a problem with moisture inside your system. In some cases, the musty smell may simply be from excess water, but in other instances, your system may have mold or mildew in the ducts. Not only will a moisture problem eventually lead to a system failure, but it could also cause mold to be carried in the air throughout your home, putting your family at risk.

Uneven Temperatures

Do some areas of your home feel cool and comfortable, while others feel hot and stuffy? These zones of uneven temperatures are usually the result of a problem with your HVAC system. In addition to uneven temperatures, pay attention to signs that your system is having a hard time moderating your home’s interior temperature. For example, you may notice that your home doesn’t feel as cool as normal, or you may note that your system is running constantly, trying to maintain the temperature. All of these issues are signs of trouble with your HVAC system.

Drainage Leaks

All HVAC systems have a drain line that should efficiently remove moisture from the system. However, the line could become clogged or rusty, which causes it to fail. When this happens, you may notice leaks from your system. Get your HVAC specialist to inspect and replace your line, if needed.
