Don’t wait until your system is completely broken before you call an HVAC repair specialist. If you pay careful attention to how your HVAC system operates you can catch small issues before they become big problems and get the experts involved on time. This will help your HVAC appliances last longer and save you money on more expensive repairs. Here’s when to call your HVAC repair specialist. 

When to Call Your HVAC Repair Specialist 

Of course, you should call your HVAC repair specialist if your furnace, air conditioner or other HVAC appliance stops working and for your yearly HVAC maintenance. You should also keep your eye out for signs that your HVAC equipment needs more support. Those signs include: 

  • Unusual noises: Whether it’s a banging, buzzing or screeching noise, you should always ask a professional to check in on your HVAC equipment. 
  • High utility bills: If your utility bills have been steadily increasing, or suddenly skyrocket, then there may be something wrong with your HVAC system. 
  • Thermostat alerts: Smart thermostats may alert you when something is wrong with one of your HVAC appliances. 
  • Suspected gas leak: Gas leaks can be emergencies, so you should reach out to your gas company and an HVAC repair specialist right away.
  • Water leaks: Many HVAC appliances can leak water or create condensation that can damage your home. 
  • Units keep turning off: If an HVAC unit such as a furnace keeps turning off when it is not supposed to, that is a surefire sign that something is wrong with it. 
  • Poor performance: Does it seem like your air conditioner isn’t as cold as it once was, or that your furnace isn’t doing a great job of heating some parts of your home? It’s time to call up a professional. 

Essentially, anytime that you have concerns or questions about your HVAC system, you should call your HVAC repair specialists. They can let you know if you need a service appointment.

What Should You Expect from Your HVAC Technician? 

After you make the call, how should a professional HVAC repair specialist respond? First, expect them to listen. It’s important for them to understand your concern even before they head out to your home. An experienced HVAC specialist will try to bring the tools and parts they suspect they’ll need to help you. 

Once your HVAC technician arrives, they should take a look at whichever HVAC appliance might be giving your trouble. They may also need to look at your air ducts, venting at the side of your house, your thermostat and more. Still, they shouldn’t start working until they’ve explained the problem, given you a quote, and received your permission.
