Halloween is here, and it’s time to turn our attention to those spooky, scary things that send shivers up our spine. Yet, being frightened by a ghoul or ghost is one thing. Being haunted by a malfunctioning HVAC system is something else entirely.
The best way to avoid an unexpected and unwanted air conditioner or heater problem is to schedule regular, preventive maintenance. Without those twice-yearly tune ups and inspections, your HVAC system is at risk of some scary and potentially dangerous problems.
Boo–No Heat or Cool Air
A neglected system is prone to unexpected and sudden breakdowns. And you know what that means? Yes, you got it. You’ll be dealing with an uncomfortably cold (or warm) house and an unhappy household.
Hallo-Scream You’ve Got Restricted Airflow
Clogged, dirty air filters restrict airflow, create stress on your system, and rapidly diminish indoor air quality. If you do just one thing for your HVAC system, make it regular air filter replacements.
Drain Pans Gone Batty
Drain pans can leak and overflow if they’re not regularly cleaned. This can result in water damage, as well as unhealthy mold, spores, and mildew growth.
Spooky Acting Belts
A slipping belt can wreak havoc on bearings, pulleys, and shafts within your HVAC system. This ultimately will damage the motor, resulting in higher utility bills and expensive repairs.
Mind Your Mummy Bearings
Bearing cavities require regular lubrication to keep them operating effectively. If they aren’t maintained, you can expect to be dealing with costly issues of overheating and bearing failure.
Refrigerant Leaks are Witchful Thinking
Refrigerant leaks, big and small, can reduce the efficiency of your system. With a routine maintenance visit, any refrigerant level issue will be identified and repaired quickly.
Trick or Treat Broken Compressor
Like filters and drain pans, compressor coils require regular cleaning.
A Faulty Heat Exchanger Is Hair Raising
A faulty heat exchanger isn’t just a hassle. It can be downright dangerous by causing carbon monoxide to seep into your indoor air.
