The Comfort of Home

Scenarios Where You Should Call An Emergency HVAC Company ASAP

You probably don't spend a ton of time thinking about your HVAC system, and you might even enjoy handling some basic maintenance and repairs on your own. But there are certain situations where it's a good idea to know the phone number of a local 24-hour emergency HVAC company or contractor. Here are some of the scenarios where it might be best to leave the situation to a professional who can respond quickly to get the situation under control.

You Smell Gas

If your HVAC system uses gas for its heat, the last thing you want to have happen is to walk into your house and catch a sniff of what might seem like sulfur or rotten eggs. If you do indeed smell gas inside your home, the very first thing you should do is locate your main gas line and turn it off completely. After that's done, you'll want to contact an emergency HVAC service to get the situation looked at in detail. Don't turn the gas line back on or touch any other part of your system until a professional has arrived on-site.

Your System Won't Turn On At All During Extreme Temperatures

There's never a good time for your HVAC system to stop working, but you especially don't want to encounter this scenario when there is harsh weather outside. Whether it's scorching heat in the summer or sub-zero temperatures in the winter, you don't want to stand there and try and troubleshoot the problem while your family begins to suffer from the cold or heat. If you want to try one possible solution yourself, you can quickly check your breaker box just to see if the power was tripped. If resetting the breaker box doesn't fix the issue, get a professional out to look at the system before the temperature inside your home becomes too uncomfortable.

Loud Noises Or Clunking Sounds

You are probably used to the sounds of your HVAC system humming a bit as it gets the job done. But if you suddenly hear a loud clunking noise or something else alarming, you should shut the system down immediately. Trying to troubleshoot the issue yourself and then turning the system back on might do more harm than good. If you don't find the issue right away, every time you turn it back on is another opportunity for that clunking sound to return, and more damage to your system could occur. Contact a 24-hour emergency HVAC technician to learn more.

About Me

The Comfort of Home

When I married my amazing husband ten years ago, I moved into the brick, ranch home he already owned. Immediately, I was thankful that the house was equipped with a central heating and air conditioning unit. This once efficient system kept me cool during the hot summer days. It also allowed me to remain warm in my home during the cold winter nights. Now, our air conditioning unit is twenty years old. Because of its age, the system has started to malfunction. Recently, my husband contacted an HVAC contractor about installing a new system at our home. This kind technician patched our old system to give us time to contemplate what type of new unit we want. On this blog, I hope you will discover the ways an HVAC contractor can help you continue to enjoy the comfort of your home.
