Is It An HVAC Emergency?
Sometimes an HVAC emergency can be subtle, while others, such as when you turn on the unit and nothing happens, are more obvious. Check out these signs you should look for to determine if emergency service is required.
The Air Conditioner Smells
While burning heater smells may be common for the first few minutes after turning the heater on for the first time in a while, a lingering burning smell may be a cause for concern. When electrical components overheat and sometimes melt, they produce a burnt smell or another similar smell. Damaged or shorted electrical components can become a fire hazard, so it’s important to call Spoor’s Heating & Air Conditioning as soon as possible. If you have any gas-powered appliances, such as the furnace or stove, and smell rotting eggs, get out of your house immediately and call the professionals; there may be a dangerous gas leak in your home.
The Air Conditioner Is Making A Weird Noise
Belts, fans, and other internal components usually make loud and/or unusual noises when there’s an issue. A high-pitched or shrill noise can signal the compressor’s pressure level is too high and needs to be fixed immediately. Noises to look out for include banging, clanking, clicking, buzzing, rattling, squealing, or humming. If it sounds like your air conditioner is trying to talk to you, it’s a sign that professional repairs are needed quickly to prevent more costly damage.
No Air Coming From The HVAC Vent
A clogged air filter can block airflow from reaching the ductwork and vents, making it seem like there is no air movement. We offer air quality servicesto ensure that the system properly filters the air with the correct MERV rated filter. But if the HVAC system is running and there is no apparent reason why the air isn’t flowing, call Spoor’s Heating & Air Conditioning. There could be an issue with the HVAC ducts, dirty coils, a faulty fan, or low refrigerant levels. We will arrive promptly and quickly determine the cause and fix it for you.
AC Leaking Water
Small amounts of condensation on the HVAC unit are nothing to worry about. On the other hand, if puddles of water are accumulating either inside or outside the unit, a professional should have a look. If left alone, the collected water can ruin the surrounding area, lead to mold growth. It can also cause irreparable damage to internal electrical components, requiring that the whole unit be replaced. If you find water underneath the AC unit, it may be a refrigerant leak. While this is uncommon, a refrigerant leak is dangerous and requires immediate service.
Frozen Evaporator Coil or Lines
If the AC isn’t cooling as usual, isn’t coming on, or is turning off prematurely, it could be a frozen evaporator coil or lines. No matter what the temperature is outside, evaporator coils and their connecting lines can freeze if the unit has been taxed too hard or if there is a clog or the coil is dirty. If the evaporator coil is frozen, the refrigerant won’t be able to flow. Thus the unit won’t be able to cool. Don’t be stuck sweating on a hot summer’s night.
