Mid-summer is definitely NOT when you want your air conditioning to go on the blink if you are a Hayward or Bay Area homeowner. At Ortiz Heating & A/C, our goal is to help homeowners enjoy a comfortable home and energy savings. We also enjoy sharing tips and advice to help you extend the life of your HVAC system, and to help you know when it’s time to call in the experts.
Here are a few indications that it may be time to call in a Hayward HVAC expert:
Your home doesn’t feel as comfortable as it once did. If your home feels “stuffy” or more humid, or it takes longer for the rooms to cool down to the temperature you desire than it once did, your system may not be operating as efficiently as it should. Or, if your air conditioner won’t cool to the desired temperature and continues to run, definitely time to give us a call!
Members of your family seem to have more respiratory issues such as asthma or allergies. Bacteria, mold, dust mites, and other airborne particles may collect in your vents or even in the walls in humid environments. The duct work may collect these pathogens as well, so call your HVAC technician to check out your system. You may need to have your ducts cleaned as well to enjoy super-clean air inside your home.
You haven’t had your cooling system serviced by a professional in a while. Just as your car needs regular maintenance, your HVAC system needs to be checked out on occasion as well. Even when you have no symptoms that anything is wrong, your heating and cooling system may be at an increased risk of failing if you have not had it inspected or serviced in years. Regular maintenance ensures a more comfortable home, and improved energy efficiency.
If you ever smell “bad” or musty smells, or hear strange noises such as banging, pinging, or buzzing that seem to be coming from your system, call in the professionals.
