Your HVAC system keeps your home comfortable throughout spring. It regulates your indoor space’s temperature, humidity and air quality, making it essential for your overall comfort and well-being. Here are five signs your HVAC system in Raleigh, NC, is inefficient:
High Energy Bills
Your HVAC system is operating more than it needs to if you’ve seen a significant rise in energy costs without a corresponding change in energy usage. If your system is inefficient, it’ll have to operate longer to maintain your desired temperature, resulting in higher energy use and costs.
Uneven Heating or Cooling
If certain areas in your house feel warmer or cooler than others, you probably have an inefficient HVAC system. Uneven heating or cooling can make certain portions of your home uncomfortable while making other areas overly hot or cold. This is often the result of poorly maintained ductwork or a broken thermostat.
An inefficient HVAC system will frequently be noisy. Clogged filters and components that are loose or worn out might make your system work harder than needed.
Poor Air Quality
Poor air quality can result from an HVAC system that isn’t operating properly. When a system is inefficient, dust and debris may accumulate in the ductwork, which can spread throughout your house. For those with respiratory diseases, this dust and debris can aggravate their symptoms and cause allergies, respiratory problems and other health issues.
Frequent HVAC Repairs
An inefficient system can cause wear and tear on your components, leading to more frequent breakdowns and the need for HVAC repairs. A professional will be able to conduct repair services by identifying the worn-out parts before the summer months.
