While problems with your HVAC unit do not present physical dangers, there can be dangers to your comfort and budget. Allowing your air conditioner to act up can lead to a miserable summer in the Texas heat. If you hear an odd noise or smell a strange odor, those are clues that should not be ignored. Check out below to see some of the effects a problematic air conditioner can have on your home. 1. Higher Electric Bills If you let those warning signs go and chalk them up to “harmless”, it can cost you extra money. The stress put on the system will make it work harder, drain more power, and cost you money. 2. Loss of Cooling Power A simple problem such as a fan running at half-speed can lead to a significant drop in the cooling power. This means even if your system is giving it all it can, it won’t be enough to keep you cool in the hot summer months. 3. Potential system break down Letting a problem go will make the problem worse. It adds additional stress to other components of your system and wears those components down putting your entire system at increased risk of a break down. As Murphy’s Law would have it, you do not want a system break-down on one of our triple digit temperature days. Breakdowns are expensive and inconvenient.
