Unless you have experience and training as an HVAC technician, you likely don’t know what to do in the event of a problem occurring with your residential HVAC system. Luckily, there are some signs to look out for that point towards something going wrong with your home’s system. Here are some common warning signs that your residential HVAC system needs to be looked at by a technician.
- Strange smells. There are a few different smells that point towards issues with your residential HVAC system. Burning, musty, or sulfuric smells can be caused by a variety of different HVAC issues within different areas of your HVAC system. Only a trained HVAC technician will be able to pinpoint exactly what’s wrong with your system, so reach out to one if you notice these smells.
- Higher utility bills. If your utility bills have recently skyrocketed with no known cause, your HVAC system may be to blame. Damages or malfunctions within your system can negatively affect its efficiency, which in turn increases your utility bills.
- Loud noises. Lots of different kinds of machinery begin to make loud, unpleasant noises when there’s something wrong with them, and your residential HVAC system is no exception.
