Like many homeowners, you’ve most likely experienced your fair share of HVAC problems already. But it can be a bit tricky to distinguish a common issue from an actual HVAC emergency. Mechanical Technologies, the area’s premier heating and air conditioning company, shares which HVAC problems you should prioritize once they appear.
1. Gas Leaks
El Paso is bright and hot throughout most of the year. But there are nights when it gets a bit cold, prompting you to turn the furnace on for the first time in a while. Natural gas is safe to use in most cases, but when it leaks, that’s a different (and dangerous) matter. Leave the property and call an HVAC contractor or gas specialist immediately if there’s sulfur or rotten egg smell inside your home. You should also keep your ears open for any hissing sounds coming from the furnace, gas line, or other appliances. Avoid turning off the gas supply or fixing the leak yourself if you notice these warning signs.
2. Refrigerant Leaks
Your air conditioning system can’t do its job without the refrigerant, a chemical blend that’s responsible for expelling heat from the surrounding air while generating cold air in turn. Your AC should have sufficient refrigerant ‘charge’ to keep things working efficiently. But if the system has a low charge due to a refrigerant leak, the issue can compromise the cooling performance of your AC. And when overlooked, a refrigerant leak can lead to complete HVAC breakdown. You can have the problem dealt with before things turn for the worse. Call a trusted professional like Mechanical Technologies for a comprehensive HVAC checkup — and the most effective solution.
