3 Signs to Call an HVAC Repair Service

With the temperature this hot outside, staying cool inside has never been more important. Whether you’re in Lakeway, Georgetown, or Austin proper, the best way to make sure you stay cool inside is to be sure your HVAC system is running properly. If you suspect it isn’t, when should you call your local HVAC repair service? Here are 3 signs it is time to reach out for local HVAC repair service:

Strange or Unusual Sounds

Your air conditioner isn’t supposed to be silent, but if you notice a new noise (inside or outside your home) it can be a sign that trouble is brewing. 

Your HVAC system can make a variety of noises throughout its lifecycle, but the vast majority of noises could be a red flag that something is damaged or a part is going out soon. If you’d like to avoid an emergency HVAC service call, notable sounds to keep your ears on alert for include: 

  • A banging or clanking noise coming from the outdoor portion (AKA the compressor) of your system may mean that a component is unbalanced or out of place.
  • If you’re hearing clicking, an electrical component may be on the fritz.
  • Squealing noises could mean that a motor is going out.
  • If you hear any excessively loud noise from any part of your system, especially a whistling or shrieking noise – shut your system off immediately and call a professional. This may indicate a coolant leak and/or a buildup of pressure, both of which can be dangerous for you and your family.

Your House Won’t Stay Cool

If your house isn’t staying as cool as it normally would it is time to call your local HVAC repair service. Your unit not staying cool can be caused by a number of things, but it is a clear red flag that your HVAC unit should be serviced. Poor airflow can be a big issue, especially during the hottest months of the year. The culprit could be an easy fix like your thermostat going on the fritz or part of a bigger issue. If your unit is only getting half of your home to your ideal temperature– it’s time to call a professional and do it ASAP! The longer your system is left in this state, the more potential there is for major and irreversible damage to be done to your air conditioner. A small problem can turn into a big one real quick – if you feel warm spots/rooms in your home, give us a call. It’ll save you from potentially having to replace your whole system!

You Notice Ice Formation on Your HVAC

Condensation around your HVAC unit is fairly common and shouldn’t be a major cause for concern. Ice is a different story. If you have noticed visible ice accumulation on your HVAC system, it’s a red flag that the evaporator coils are not working properly. Ice accumulation can happen for several reasons. There is often a leak, grime, or clog in the filter. Your best course of action would be to call an emergency HVAC service to service your unit.

With these summer days continuing to get hotter and hotter, keeping your home cool can be challenging.
