3 Signs Your HVAC System Needs Maintenance, Anchorage, Alaska

We don’t often put a lot of daily thought into the condition of our HVAC system unless there’s a problem. HVAC units often give little signs that they need to be cleaned. By acting at the first sign, you could dramatically extend the life of your unit and help it work more efficiently. Look out for these subtle hints as a notification to call a maintenance professional.

3 Signs You Need to Maintain Your HVAC System 

1. Inefficient Cooling

Do you have the AC cranked up, but don’t feel enough cold air coming out? This is a tell-tale sign that your HVAC unit needs maintenance. An HVAC specialist will be able to identify the problem, usually as a failed compressor. Regular maintenance will help to extend the life of each component by making sure there are no interferences, blockages, or extra strain throughout the unit.

2. Peak in Energy Costs

hvacIf you notice your utility bill comes in at an unusually high amount, it could be the first sign of an ill-working HVAC unit. When blockages or debris are clogging the vents, only a small stream of air can be adequately filtered and blown into the home. The HVAC unit will have to work extra hard, hence the bill, to maintain the temperature you’ve set on your thermostat.

3. Strange Sounds

If you hear a squeaking, grinding, grating, or squealing coming from your HVAC unit, it’s time to get it checked. These sounds could be a sign of broken motor bearings that have gotten stuck inside your condenser. The problem should be resolved quickly to avoid further damage to the unit.
