There are different types of smells that may come from your HVAC system but most of the time, they are all bad. If you are getting a musty smell, this could indicate mold. This is a major health hazard for you and your family. If you are getting a hot, strong, pungent smell, this may mean that your unit’s wire insulation is burned and needs to be replaced.
Things that Go Bump in the Night… Or When You Turn Them On
Your AC unit should be quiet, so if you hear thumps and bumps or notice sounds such as grinding, squealing, or grating, you need the Tower Heating & Air “Heat Busters” to come to investigate.
Please, Turn Off
Even during the hottest days of summer, your AC unit should run at steady intervals. If you notice that the unit is starting and stopping more than usual, it is running too long, or it is never turning off, this is a problem.
Unusually High Power Bill
Lastly, if you receive an unusually high power bill, your air conditioning unit could be to blame. If your home is not well insulated or, like we said above, is running too often, it could cause a spike in your bill.
Are you experiencing any of these issues? Give us a call today at 919-336-9705.
