three common signs that you need HVAC repairs

Here at AppleBlossom Energy, we know that you rely on your HVAC system to keep your home comfortable. We also know from experience just how unpleasant living with a malfunctioning system can be. The key to preventing severe HVAC problems is to catch them as early as possible, and to help you do that, our team has put together this list of three common signs that you need HVAC repairs.

  • Reduced Air Flow- One sign that you need HVAC repair is insufficient air flow from your vents. Reduced air flow can be caused by a number of different things, from simple issues like clogged air filters that you can likely handle on your own to more serious ones that need professional attention. If you’ve already cleaned or replaced your filters and the problem hasn’t gone away, we recommend that you call our team at AppleBlossom Energy to get an expert assessment.
  • Weird Smells or Sounds- Another common sign that you need HVAC repairs is new or unusual sounds coming from your system. Your system will make some noise while it’s running, of course, but the sound should be the usual background hum and not any squealing, clanging, rattling, or whistling, all of which are signs of severe problems. In addition, you should also pay attention to any smells coming from your system—a musty smell can point to a mold problem, while a hot electrical smell can be the result of faulty wiring. In any of these cases, we encourage you to call our team as soon as possible.
  • Allergy Flare-Ups – A less obvious sign of possible HVAC issues is more frequent or severe allergy flare-ups. Your HVAC system circulates air throughout your home, and if that air becomes contaminated with allergens, then you’re in for a bad time. This issue can sometimes be solved by replacing your air filters, but if it persists then you should call our team at AppleBlossom Energy to find out whether you need HVAC repairs.
