Radiant Plumbing HVAC Unit Tune-up

They say “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” but in the case of your home’s heating system following this line of advice may just leave you without heat this winter. While it may not seem like your heating system needs extra attention, giving it a little TLC can help you avoid having to replace your system entirely. If you haven’t had your heating system tuned-up this year, here are a few signs that it may be time to request HVAC service in Travis County.

Noisy Operation

The sound of a furnace turning on is a sound most homeowners have become accustomed to. So much so, that when a home’s heating system starts to make funny noises, most people don’t even notice. Any time your home’s heating system starts to make a strange noise, it’s a sign that your system needs professional attention. Here are a few red flag sounds you should keep an ear out for:

  • Banging
  • Rumbling
  • Booming
  • Squeaking
  • Clanking

Foul Odor

When it comes to your home’s heating system remember this golden rule—if it smells bad, something is wrong! Your heating system should never give off a foul odor, and if you do notice one, the root cause of the smell can be a number of things. For instance, if the air circulating around your home smells a bit musty, your heating system may have mold or mildew growth inside. That’s why it’s so important to get your system tuned-up regularly.

Inconsistent Temperatures

Changes in your home’s temperature may be one of the most noticeable signs that your heating system needs a tune-up. Heating systems are designed to stay at a consistent temperature. If your home’s temperature rapidly increases or decreases, it’s time to make the call to a professional technician before you get hit with an outrageous utility bill.
