  • Poor heating: If you’re noticing that your heater isn’t able to do its job and you’re seeing high energy bills along with it, you definitely need to call in a professional technician. You may need a repair or, if the situation is problematic enough, you may be looking at needing a replacement system.
  • Weak airflow: When you run your HVAC system, are there areas that you notice the airflow coming out is lacking? If this is a problem in one room, it may mean issues with your ductwork. If you have problems with the airflow throughout the house it could be a problem getting into your system.
  • Concerning sounds: Listen up the next time you are running your HVAC system. Are you hearing rattling, screeching, or hissing sounds? Noises like these are indicators that you may need repairs for your heater or ductwork.
  • Signs of a leak: Are you noticing the presence of liquid leaking around your heat pump? If so, this may mean you need a technician to check your condensate drain or your refrigerant line.
  • Thermostat problems: Lastly, have you been having trouble with your thermostat? Maybe the thermostat has a delayed response when you try to use it or you’ve noticed that it can’t properly detect the temperature. Make sure to have a technician assess the problem to see if you need repairs or if you need an upgrade.
