If you want to make sure that your home is staying as cool as you would like it to be during the hotter months of the year, you will need to know the signs that indicate the need for professional HVAC help. Take a moment to review the following signs of cooling trouble so you will know when to take action.
Not All Rooms Are Cooling Off The Same
A central air unit is designed to cool off the entire house all at once and with the same level of comfort. If you are starting to find that there is a room or two that is simply not getting as cold as the rest of the house, you may have a problem within your walls. You will want to call in a skilled HVAC technician as some of the duct work that carries the cooled air may be starting to come apart. When there is an opening in the duct work system, some of that cold air will escape and become trapped behind your walls instead of making it all of the way through the air vents. An HVAC contractor will send a camera through the duct work system to inspect all of it and to determine the exact location of the problem so it can be quickly resolved.
The Central Air Unit Is Making Odd Sounds
You should not hear anything coming from the central air unit other than a possible low humming sound. So if you are noticing any banging, clicking, or hissing noises, you will want to call for immediate assistance from a trustworthy HVAC technician in your area. The problem could be anything from a broken or disconnected drain line to a fan that is starting to lock in place. You might find that you are having trouble with the motor or some of the electrical wires inside of the central air unit. Either way, these are issues that can result in your home no longer being cooled off when the unit finally stops being able to produce cool air. Therefore, it is best to have the problem diagnosed and then fixed before it ever gets to that point.
With just those two signs of trouble, you should feel more confident about spotting trouble with your central air conditioning unit. Contact a service in your area such as MD AIR Heating and Cooling, LLC for more information.
