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.

Signs You Should Invest In A New A/C System

by Billie Carlson

Your air conditioner is what keeps you cool and relaxed during the summer months. Without the central air conditioning unit, you may be able to stay cool with a room air conditioner, or a fan, but the minute you move or leave the room, you're hot again. Don't sweat all summer long, if your air conditioner is not working, hire a professional HVAC technician to work on your existing system, or install a new one. If you are on the fence about investing in a new system, there are some signs to watch out for that may indicate it's time for a new one. Read on for some of these signs.

Your System Is Breaking Down Constantly 

If your air conditioning system is constantly breaking down, it may be a sign that your system needs to be replaced altogether. A system that breaks down constantly, even just for minor issues may be an indication of what is to come, and those minor repairs can add up over time and be very costly. If you are always calling the repairman, you should consider investing in a new system that will not have these same issues. If you are dealing with major repairs, you should definitely consider investing in a new system. Sometimes the cost to repair much outweighs the cost to replace.

Your System Has Aged Out

If your system has aged out of its lifetime, you should consider yourself lucky, then you should consider investing in a new system. Just because that old system still runs doesn't mean that it is energy efficient, or that it will run forever. It's more than likely going to shut down at the most inopportune time and you should definitely consider investing in a newer system. Air conditioners can last a long time so if yours has lasted longer, that's a good thing, but it can also be a negative as well, as the older system may be costly to run. A newer system that is more energy efficient may not have to run as much or as often to cool your home, which can be cost savings for you. 

If you are not sure if you should invest in a new air conditioning system, it's something to discuss with a professional HVAC contractor. This may be something in your best interest to do and it could be a cost savings in your own pocket.
