Signs You Need Emergency HVAC Services

HVAC problems can make life uncomfortable or even dangerous, so it’s good to keep the number of an HVAC emergency repair company at the ready for quick service. Here are a few signs that you may need emergency HVAC repair.

Weird Sounds

Most appliances make some noise when they run, but when you begin to hear clanking, banging, rattling, and other alarming noises on a frequent basis, you may need emergency AC repair or emergency furnace repair, depending on what you’ve been running.

Unusual Odors

Have you ever noticed a smell like rotting eggs after turning on your air conditioner or furnace? This odor could indicate that there is sulfur in your HVAC system and it needs to be inspected. The air coming from your vents should be odorless. Other strange smells could be indications of mold or mildew, or even pests in your ductwork. Hoover can get your ducts cleaned, and fix other HVAC problems that can stink up your home.

Frequent Cycling

If you notice that your heating or air conditioning system is turning on and off too frequently, this may not just be an inefficiency or an annoyance. It could also be a sign that your HVAC system needs repair or replacement.

Weak or Wrong-Temperature Air

Maybe you’ve set the AC to a cool temperature but are getting warm air from the vents. Or maybe you’ve set the heat to a warm temperature and are getting cold air from the vents. This means there’s a problem with either the thermostat or another part of your HVAC system that is making the house very uncomfortable. In the middle of winter or summer this can lead to dangerous temperatures. Weak airflow is also a serious problem, making your HVAC system ineffective at maintaining proper temperatures.

Leaking Units or Pipes

You may notice a little bit of water dripping from your HVAC system’s pipes from condensation. That’s perfectly normal. But if you begin to notice pools of water around your pipes or your water tank, there could be holes in your HVAC system. Some of these can be repaired, but some are indications that your HVAC system needs to be replaced.
