It is easy to tell that something is wrong with your unit if your Dallas, TX home is not comfortable anymore and your energy bill increases for no reason. While some issues in your unit seem obvious, others might just surprise you, especially at times when you need comfort the most.
This fall season, our experts at Kirk Air Conditioning & Heating will share you of the most common HVAC emergencies you need to know.
- Refrigerant Leaks
A refrigerant leak is a problem we do not want to experience in the middle of freezing nights. When it happens, your heating unit might not work properly and cannot give you the right amount of warm inside your home. Too much refrigerant can even cause failure to your compressor. Be sure to call your local technician to address your refrigerant problems this season.
- Corroded Terminals and Wirings
You might have corroded terminals and wires if your HVAC system is short cycling or turning on and off by itself. Call your local technician to check your unit and replace the corroded parts before they cause more issues on other nearby components.
- Exploded Fuse
The fuse in your evaporator coil is responsible for protecting your motor from overheating. It might blow up if your unit has loose wires. This can pose a great harm in your unit and might be a cause of other unexpected costly problems. Be sure to make a service call when this happens.
- Dirty HVAC Parts
Your unit’s components can get dirty over time and when it happens, you should clean these parts to allow smooth operation in your heating and cooling system. Dirt might build up and might cause your unit to work harder, allowing it to consume more energy and increasing your energy bill every month. Avoid this issue this fall by contacting your local HVAC contractor to perform complete HVAC maintenance and cleaning.
- Loud, Strange Noises
Are you hearing strange and loud noises in your unit? The presence of squealing, banging, rasping or grinding sound means something is wrong. It might send a message to you that your bearing and belt are wearing out or your burner is dirty. Immediately set an appointment with your local technician to address the problem.
If your HVAC system is suspected of serious problems this fall season, do not hesitate to contact your local heating and cooling contractor. Our team at Kirk Air Conditioning & Heating are always ready to help you with your HVAC issues and get your unit prepared for the cold months. Call us today!
