AC Unit Blowing Warm Air
A properly functioning AC unit will have no issues keeping your home or business cool. If your AC is blowing out warm or room-temperature air, AC maintenance can typically resolve it. Depending on what caused the issue, there are several methods to resolve it. Clogged air filters could reduce your AC unit’s efficiency, which can easily be checked by opening your air vents. Other causes will require a professional inspection and repair, such as the dirty coils needing to be cleaned or replaced, an electrical issue, or a coolant leak.
Bad & Strange Odors
Lingering bad odors in your home or business could be from issues with your AC unit. The odor could be caused by mold, mildew, or organic debris in your unit. Odors are not only a nuisance but could also be hazardous to the health of your household. Professional duct cleaning, AC unit cleaning, and AC maintenance can help quickly resolve these issues.
Sudden Increase In Energy Bill
If your utility bill increases significantly for seemingly no reason, your HVAC system could be malfunctioning, using more energy than usual to keep your home cool. Several things could be causing this, and a professional inspection will likely be necessary to find the problem’s source. To prevent this and other issues, schedule regular AC maintenance with Spoor’s Heating & Air Conditioning to help save energy and extend the life of your HVAC system!
AC Unit Is Leaking
While condensation on your AC unit during hot days can be normal, puddles of water or fluid leaking from the liquid is a cause for attention. The leak could be from the coolant, a clogged drainpipe, or could be indicative of a larger issue. Scheduling AC maintenance promptly can help prevent additional issues from arising.
Poor Air Flow
Proper airflow in your home or business is essential to maintain proper humidity levels and fresh air. If the AC is running and you feel deceased airflow, there could be a few causes, such as clogged air filters, clogged air ducts, or holes in the air duct. Poor airflow can also affect the health of your household by increasing indoor allergens. Contact us to schedule a comprehensive HVAC inspection and quickly resolve any concerns with your AC unit.
