Grinding, Squealing and Screeching: Interpreting the Noises Your HVAC Makes

If something is failing or going amiss with your HVAC unit, chances are, your HVAC unit is letting you know something is not quite right. However, most of the cues come in the form of sounds that many of us may overlook. If you hear your HVAC unit grinding, squealing, screeching or squeaking, it is letting you know it needs help. I was unaware of these cues and overlooked them. It ended up costing me a lot of money in repairs. I want to make sure that does not happen to other people, so I made this website. I hope you learn how to interpret the noises your HVAC unit is making so you can get it the repairs it needs before you incur a costly repair, or worse, permanently ruin your unit for good.

A Sound Guide To Getting A Portable Cooling Unit For The Inside Of Your Home

by Billie Carlson

Portable cooling units come with some strategic advantages, such as being easy to move around and not taking up a lot of space. If you plan on supporting a room in your house with one, this guide can help you find a sustainable model that's easy to use.

Make Sure Portable Unit Supports Cooling Needs

There are a lot of great things about portable cooling units, but in order to make the most out of them, you need to make sure this type of cooling system is really supporting your needs. What do you plan on doing with this unit?

If it's to support an individual room, then portable cooling units are ideal. Whereas if you're trying to support multiple areas of your home or your property in its entirety, you may need to go with a different cooling system.

See If the Model Is Compatible with Home's Layout 

Once you find a portable cooling unit with the right performance and features, take some time to verify its compatibility with your home. Then you can make sure this unit gets set up quickly and provides the right type of cooling you're looking for.

Typically with these units, you need a window that can open up to support the vent mechanisms that portable cooling systems come with. Then you'll be able to collect warm air found inside your home and convert it to cool air effectively. If you're unsure of your selected model being compatible with your home's layout, consult with a professional technician to find out for sure. 

Consider a Dual Hose Design in the Back 

Portable cooling units can vary in design and one of the most important variances is how the hose is set up in the back. You have single and dual hose designs. The latter might be something to consider in particular because it can provide more efficient cooling.

That's because there is an intake and exhaust hose rather than a model with a single hose for both purposes. Additionally, this dual design can help the portable cooling unit work a lot faster when bringing temperatures down in a particular area or room in your home.

You can use a portable cooling unit to support a part of your home. You'll have added portability and simplified maintenance. Just make sure you're able to get a model that you know how to use and works effectively on a consistent basis when powered on.
