If you want to keep your Melbourne’s home air conditioning system in tiptop shape, it’s a good idea to schedule an annual service for your Melbourne’s ducted cooling system once a year. Ideally, this appointment would be in the Spring. By scheduling the checkup early in the year, you’ll have the comfort of knowing that you are prepared for the summer. Best of all, you’ll be taking proactive steps to help prevent more costly problems or untimely breakdowns that might otherwise occur in the middle of a crushing heatwave. In addition to the annual service, there are other key times when you should schedule a service call for your ducted cooling system.
Limited Airflow Coming Out of the Vents
You should call for service if you notice that your home is not getting cool because there is little to no air coming out of the ductwork vents. This indicates that there is either an issue with the system efficiency or there is a blockage preventing air from flowing. Checking to see if your filter needs to be replaced is the first step that you can take.
If there is no air filter issue, it’s best to get service so you can have a professional check out both the system and the ductwork. Some components may need to be replaced, or in some cases it might be helpful to add an energy-recovery ventilator to the system. In other instances, modifications to the ductwork might help redirect cool air to rooms where it is needed most.
The System Is Blowing Only Warm Air
Nothing is more frustrating than turning on the air conditioning system during a heat wave, only to find that it is only producing warm air. The first thing to check in this case is your thermostat. If the dial is already set to cool, try lowering the desired temperature a few degrees to see whether cold air will start flowing.
If that does not work, it’s definitely time to set up a service call with a reputable HVAC company. A trained engineer can come out and troubleshoot your cooling system and find out what needs to be done to get everything up and running again.
The Cooling System Is Making Loud Noises
Ideally, your air conditioning system is humming along with the familiar sound that comes with cooling your home on a hot day. If you begin to hear high-pitched noises, or if there is squealing, it may indicate a problem with a belt or other component that it not properly aligned or functioning as it was intended. You’ll want to set up a service appointment to take care of this as soon as possible.
Buzzing or rattling sounds could indicate a part that has come loose. When you hear grinding or whistling noises it could indicate a more serious issue that needs immediate attention. It’s far better to take care of these issues quickly, instead of letting them continue over time.
