Now that we are in the middle of another typical mid-Atlantic summer, your HVAC system may be showing some HVAC warning signs that you really can’t afford to ignore. If you are putting off dealing with those HVAC warning signs, you may find yourself sweating it out when you need your Montgomery County HVAC system to work the most!
Here’s a quick checklist to see if you have some clear HVAC warning signs letting you know your home’s summer comfort might be at risk:
Check your utility bill – Does each month’s bill keep creeping higher and higher? If this sounds like your utility bill, the culprit could be an HVAC unit that is on the decline.
Hot or Cold? – If adjusting your thermostat has become an ongoing daily battle to stay comfortable in your home, it could be an indication that HVAC system is not functioning properly. Your Calvert County home could also be experiencing other energy loss issues through leaky air ducts or insufficient insulation, so a closer look should be taken at the HVAC unit to ensure the temperature fluctuation is not a result of a declining unit.
Listen – Has your home’s HVAC system started making unfamiliar sounds? That’s a sign that you need to contact B.M.C./Clower Heating & Air to evaluate the sounds before it turns into a summer comfort emergency.
Age – All good things must come to an end, and that includes the life of your HVAC unit. The average lifespan is around 15 years so once you get close to that threshold, you are basically living with a unit on borrowed time. Aside from the risk of your heating and cooling system going out on you when you need it the most, you also risk escalating utility bills through inefficient operations of the unit. Don’t risk having your HVAC system leave you in the heat this summer. B.M.C./Clower Heating & Air is a phone call away to inspect your home’s HVAC system and advise you on what is needed to ensure you stay cool all summer long!
