Laveen Air Conditioning Service & Repair
It’s not always easy to know when your air conditioner is in trouble, but if you know what to look for, you can call a professional technician for repairs before it breaks down and extend your system’s lifespan.
Here are the most common warning signs that your AC is failing.
- Loud noise during operation like squealing, grinding or rattling.
- The room temperature doesn’t match the thermostat.
- You smell musty or burning odors coming from the system when it’s running.
- The temperatures are inconsistent between rooms.
- The airflow is weaker than before.
- You notice sudden, unexpected spikes in your energy bills.
These problems don’t always mean that your air conditioner must be replaced, but it’s wise to call a professional to find out what’s going on as soon as possible.
When to Call a Furnace Contractor
Knowing when to call a furnace contractor for repairs can help you prevent a heating issue from developing into a costly repair or replacement.
At Grand Canyon Home Services, we offer comprehensive heating maintenance and repair to ensure your system runs efficiently for as long as possible.
Here are the most common signs to watch and listen for that warrant calling a professional for help.
Most of us don’t pay attention to our heater or furnace; the most common way we know there’s a problem is when it stops working.
However, the better way to detect problems is by listening to your heater when it’s running.
If you hear rattling, squealing, or grinding, contact a certified HVAC technician to find out what’s going on.
Flickering or Yellow Flame
If you have a furnace that burns gas, it’s wise to check the flame regularly. A blue flame means the system is healthy and running as it should. However, if the flame is yellow, green, or purple, it’s usually a sign that your system is leaking carbon monoxide, a severe health risk to your family.
If your furnace isn’t producing enough heat, despite what the thermostat says, it could be something as simple as a dirty air filter. However, in more extreme cases, it may be the fan motor, the thermocouple, or the pilot light, which requires the help of a trained professional.
To ensure your heater runs efficiently year after year, it’s wise to invest in annual maintenance and tune-ups from a certified HVAC technician.
