So many homes have heating and cooling units today that we often take them for granted, but can you imagine being without them in the scorching heat of summer or the depths of winter? In fact, every year the elderly suffer the effects of extreme heat and cold simply because they can’t afford to pay for their electricity or gas bills, or because they can’t afford to have their unit repaired or replaced.
When Should You Have Your Unit Repaired or Replaced?
It’s important to make sure that your heating and cooling units are working well. If they are not working as efficiently as possible, you can end up paying a lot of money in electrical bills. But how do you know when your unit isn’t doing what it should be doing? Consider the following:
* Dirty: Air conditioners and heaters do a lot of work when they are being used. They are made from quality materials, but over time all sorts of dirt and gunk can build up and cause problems. Ensure that your unit’s filter is clean and that the vents around the compressor are clean.
* Noisy: Is your unit making funny noises? Does it vibrate when it is in use? It could be something as simple as a loose bolt or screw that needs tightening, or as complex as a compressor unit about to break down.
It’s important to remember that if you have doubts about the efficiency of your unit, you should get in touch with heating and air conditioning services.
