As an El Monte resident, you use your HVAC system quite a bit throughout the year. Although the weather has been relatively mild now that summer’s in the rearview mirror, we’ll be back to scorching highs before you know it.

Many people aren’t aware of the signs indicating that they need to invest in HVAC repair, so in today’s entry, we’re going to look at a few of the most common issues you might encounter with your system. Of course, we can’t actually diagnose problems until we take a look at your unit. Get in touch with our HVAC company if you would like a Cool City Air Conditioning expert to come to your home!

Common Signs You Need HVAC Repair

Strange Smells

Any changes in your system’s performance should prompt a closer look, and strange smells are certainly no exception. In obvious cases, extremely pungent orders and anything that smells burnt should be looked at by a professional HVAC company as soon as possible. That being said, strange odors of any strength can be caused by system malfunctions, clogged filters, mold, and other serious problems, so don’t wait to have them addressed!

Little or No Airflow

Is your HVAC unit not cooling your home as quickly as it once did? Are you turning the unit on, only to discover that no air comes out of your vents?

Airflow problems are common, but that doesn’t mean that you should wait to fix them. The problem could be as simple as a blockage in your ducts, but it could also be indicative of a clogged air filter or broken internal components. No matter what’s causing the issue, calling an HVAC company to fix the problem means that you’ll be back to having a cool and comfortable home as soon as possible.

High Energy Bills

With the holidays just around the corner, you’re probably looking to save money wherever you can. If your energy bills have been slowly increasing throughout the course of the year, now is the perfect time to call an HVAC company to have them take a look. Inefficiencies can be addressed quickly by an HVAC technician, and the long-run savings could be significant!

Frequent Repairs

Picture this scenario:

It’s the middle of July and you’ve been working hard in the office all day and can’t wait to get home, especially because the building has had issues with the air conditioning in recent weeks. You walk through your front door and turn on the air conditioning, but nothing happens. You turn the unit on and off again, but your home’s temperature still resembles that of a sauna. You soon realize that your HVAC system has broken down and needs to be repaired, but it takes at least a day or two for your local HVAC company to get you on their schedule. This is the third time in a few years that your unit has suddenly quit on you — is there anything you can do?

If you don’t have first-hand experience with a scenario like this, we’re willing to bet that you know someone who does.

Breakdowns are often due to infrequent maintenance, and the best way to prevent them is to have your system inspected by a professional on a regular basis. Be sure to schedule your HVAC inspection well before the temperatures start to climb later in the year!
