HVAC: Keeping Your Cool In the Summer

Hey! My name is Danny and this is my new HVAC blog. HVAC might seem like a really boring subject, but have you ever considered that when you enter the local shopping mall or your place of work, the only reason it feels comfortable is because of the complex HVAC systems. I only came to truly appreciate my HVAC system when it stopped working. It was a really hot day in Sydney and I came home from work to discover the inside of my home was hotter than the surface of the sun. I called in a contractor who fixed up the HVAC system and gave me some great tips. Since then, I have been finding out all I can about the world of HVAC.

Things that Indicate Your HVAC Unit Needs Repair

Overlooking small things could lead to your air conditioner performing poorly. You do not have to wait until your HVAC unit breaks down completely to contact air conditioning contractors. Regular maintenance from an expert will increase the life span of your air conditioner.

Sometimes it might not be clear that your air conditioner is slowly breaking down. However, if you are keen enough, you are likely to notice certain signs that could be an indication that your HVAC system is wearing out. Some of these signs include the following. 

Inadequate Airflow

If you notice poor airflow with your AC, greater chances are it is not working as it should be. This is mostly caused by blockages within the home's ductwork. Insufficient airflow could mean a serious issue, but that is not always the case. The problem could be a broken motor, a clogged air filter or something else that an expert could easily fix.

Inadequate airflows are common in many homes that rely on air conditioners to keep their home in controlled temperatures. A broken or poorly functioning HVAC is the last thing you would wish for, especially if your region is extremely hot or cold. Investing in energy-recovery ventilators and zoning systems is a great way to prevent inconveniences caused by insufficient HVAC airflow.

Lack of Cooling

If your air conditioner does not cool regardless of your turning it on to full capacity, the issue could be that the system is not functioning properly. Most families do not realise this malfunction until the hot season comes and they crave some cool air. Having your HVAC system checked regularly could prevent this problem.

A failed compressor is often the cause of air conditioners not cooling as they should. You might not notice a failed compressor, but a trained and experienced technician will. An expert should be experienced in handling this problem. 

Bad Smells

Your HVAC is supposed to make your home comfortable. However, the air conditioner in your home might be needing some repairs if you are noticing an unpleasant smell coming from it. The bad smell could be a sign of mould contamination or electrical problems.

A musty smell is an indication of mould growing in your AC. In such a case, you could be risking blowing mould in your entire house, which could make your family sick. On the other hand, a strong burning smell is a sign of poor wire insulation in the unit's system. Both cases require immediate repairs.
