3 Common HVAC Issues That Affect Your Home’s Efficiency

June 20, 2019

Your HVAC system is something that you probably hardly notice unless things go wrong. During our decades of experience serving clients and working with various HVAC systems, we know that efficiency is a top concern for many of our customers. If the utility bills for your Fayetteville, North Carolina, home have gone up recently, or you think your HVAC system is less efficient, several things could be to blame.

Refrigerant Leaks

If you notice your air conditioner lacks the cooling power it once had, makes a hissing noise, or doesn’t have an adequate output of cool air, those are all things that could indicate the unit is leaking refrigerant. Besides compromising the efficiency of your air conditioner, a refrigerant leak could expose your family to chemicals.

Get in touch with our team if you suspect a refrigerant leak or a similar issue. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and restore refreshing coolness to your abode.

A Clogged Filter

You need to change your air conditioner’s filter regularly. It’s sometimes necessary to do it as often as every few weeks, particularly if you suffer from allergies or have pets. Filters that remain unchanged for long periods make your air conditioner work less efficiently. They can also reduce indoor air quality.

An Outdated System

You may also notice that your air conditioner isn’t as efficient as it used to be. Our technicians can give your system a thorough evaluation and see if there’s an issue that warrants repair, or perhaps it’s just time to invest in a newer system.

To get advice about air conditioner repairs or any other HVAC needs, reach out to our Fayetteville office today by calling Cape Fear Air Conditioning, Heating, & Electrical Company, Inc. at (910) 216-9394. We’re excited to play a role in helping your home or business stay cool and comfortable this year.
