Most people do not think about their HVAC unit until something goes wrong.
Unfortunately, most AC breakdowns tend to happen at the most inopportune
times, leaving us to sweat out the hot summer or chill through the winter
in discomfort. Thankfully, many HVAC catastrophes can be avoided through
preventative maintenance and by keeping an eye out for certain signs of
failure. Our Las Vegas HVAC professionals list some common warning signs
that can help you identify any AC or heating-related issues before they
get out of hand.
Fluctuations in temperature: Do you find that even on full blast, your air conditioner or heater simply
does not produce air that is as hot or cold as it once was? If the temperature
of the air coming from your unit is inconsistent or if your unit simply
isn’t doing its job, you may need to have your unit replaced.
Weak airflow: Is little or weak air coming through your vents? This may be a sign that
your unit’s compressor is bad. On the other hand, if you are finding
that some areas are getting cooler or hotter than other areas of your
home, the problem may be with your ducts.
Thermostat issues: Some HVAC issues are not related to the unit at all, but instead are
caused by a bad thermostat. Your thermostat may be failing if you experience
inconsistent temperature in different rooms, or if one area gets hot or
cold while the rest of the house stays the same temperature.
Odd sounds: Grinding, squeaking, or other odd noises are usually an indication of
a mechanical failure inside the unit itself. If ignored, this could result
in a major breakdown.
Foul odors: Odd odors can be attributed to a variety of HVAC problems. Pungent or
foul smells are usually attributed to burning wire insulation, whereas
musty odors are commonly a sign of the development of mold inside your
unit or ductwork, leading to various health issues and fire hazards if
not addressed promptly.
