Homeowners with a central air conditioning unit, heat pump, or ductless mini-split should know the importance of repairs. They keep a system running smoothly and efficiently. Even when they are costly, repairs usually save owners money in the long run. Below are just a few of the dangers that homeowners may experience when they choose not to have their units repaired.
Loud and Irritating Noises
First of all, a number of problems that an AC develops can emit a loud noise. Loose parts, for example, will make a rattling or banging noise, while a defective relay will continually click. A broken blower fan belt will make a grinding sound, and a bad motor will squeal.
Weak or Uneven Cooling
It’s not just annoying noises that you will have to contend with. Without repairs, an AC unit can become compromised in its cooling power so that it blows out lukewarm air even after being on for several minutes. A dirty condenser coil is usually behind lukewarm air.
Certain rooms may develop “hot spots,” too, which could point to a clog in the ductwork or air filters. At HB McClure, our AC repair team can tackle any issue with ductwork. Harrisburg residents often turn to us for duct cleaning and sealing.
Humidity and Dirty Indoor Air
Refrigerant leaks and clogged condensate drain pipes, if left unattended, can make your home humid. Even worse, refrigerant leaks will harm your health and the environment, and water buildup can result in flooding and mold growth. As for poor indoor air quality, this will arise if you do nothing about dirty filters and ducts.
High Electricity Bills
Lastly, you’ll find yourself paying more for below-average performance. This is because the AC system will struggle to maintain your home at the temperature you want.
