The second your airflow starts to slow down, this is usually an indicator that your HVAC system is having an issue. An HVAC unit doesn’t just slow down for no reason. When it slows down, it is best to call someone to check it out so you are not left with a hot/cold house.
You won’t be able to tell what’s wrong with an unknowing eye, though. You need to call in a professional like Weldon Heating and Air to see what the issue is.
Leaks on the inside or the outside of the home can be a sign your HVAC needs some attention.
Indoor leaks will occur around the air events. DO NOT IGNORE THIS! The earlier we can fix this issue, the better. moisture buildup inside a home can cause further damage.
Outdoor leaks are a bit trickier. You have to go outside and take a look at the main HVAC unit from time to time to look for leaks. This is a good habit to get into to make sure your HVAC system is running properly and won’t have any issues anytime soon.
A Faulty Thermostat
The next way to tell if you need HVAC maintenance is if your thermostat says 70 degrees but it feels like 50 degrees. If this happens, you need to have your HVAC system checked out by a professional.
When such things happen, it’s not that you pushed something on the screen. Unfortunately, 9/10 times it is an issue with your whole unit. A lot of people think it is something on the thermostat broke but that is simply not the case most of the time.
The final thing to keep an eye out for is if you smell something different in the air. If it is a burning or rotten smell, that is a good indicator your HVAC is having issues.
Unless it is your husband cooking in the kitchen, odds are it is your HVAC system!
Please give Weldon Heating and Air a call if you live in the Georgia area. We are glad to help!
