Whether you’re having problems with your furnace in the winter or your air conditioner in the summer, HVAC issues can be frustrating for any homeowner. While it may be tempting to diagnose and fix the issue yourself, HVAC systems like ACs and heat pumps are complex! Without experience and expertise, repairing it on your own is not only dangerous—it can worsen the problem as well.
At Bovio Rubino Service, we’ve been doing right by South Jersey homeowners since 1974 with our comprehensive and high quality HVAC services. From the everyday to the emergencies, our team can solve your AC or furnace problem. Let’s look over 5 of the most common HVAC problems that require professional help:
- Your HVAC is Making Strange Noises
Your heating and cooling systems can make a variety of noises, and each different sound can point to a different problem. For example, squealing usually points to a loose or broken belt, while a hissing sound can mean a refrigerant leak within your AC.
The best way to get to the source of the noises coming from your HVAC is to call the experts at Bovio Rubino Service for an inspection so our team can properly identify what’s causing the problem.
- Your Energy Bills Have Increased
When your heating and cooling costs rise without an increase in your usage or rates, your HVAC system is usually to blame. HVAC units tend to get less efficient as they age, but an increase in energy costs could also mean that a crucial component to the system has worn down.
With a home energy audit, we’ll go through your whole-home system—from your insulation to your HVAC performance—and help you pinpoint exactly what’s causing your energy bills to rise.
- There’s Little to No Airflow Coming From Your Vents
Limited airflow coming from your vents after turning on your HVAC can be caused by leaky ductwork or a buildup of debris—both of which can be harmful to your indoor air quality. Poor airflow can also be one of the first signs of a failing compressor in an air conditioner, so it’s important to get it looked out before it becomes a bigger issue.
If you’ve changed your air filter, yet the problem persists, call Bovio Rubino Service to get to the bottom of the issue. If your HVAC isn’t causing the lack of airflow, we can perform duct cleaning services and help you breathe easier.
- Your HVAC is Short Cycling
Short cycling is when your HVAC is constantly turning off and on in order to reach your desired temperature. Short cycling can add unnecessary wear and tear on your system and be caused by a dirty air filter, poor electrical connections, refrigerant issues, or even a problem with your thermostat.
An HVAC that’s constantly turning off and on can also be a sign your system is starting to fail, so call our team for heating and cooling repair and we’ll find the best and most cost-effective solution.
- You’ve Noticed Leaks Around Your HVAC
The most common cause of leaks in an AC or heat pump is a clogged condensation line–which can make your home feel more humid than normal and promote mold growth within your system.
HVAC leaks should always be solved by a professional HVAC technician because they can very easily and quickly turn into a more serious problem.
