    What are the most common general HVAC service questions your customers ask you?

    General HVAC service questions begin and end with consumers who want to know when to call in the professionals. No one wants the expense, but few have the skills to fix these problems on their own. Beyond convenience, there are certain problems which require the immediate attention of a professional.

    Here are three HVAC warning signs no property owner should ignore

    1. Unsettling Sounds

    Grinding noises are among the sounds you need to respond to immediately to prevent a breakdown. The clash of metal-on-metal signifies something is seriously wrong. Ignoring these noises will lead to a need for more extensive, expensive repairs. Banging noises when your system turns on also present an immediate danger. This is a sign natural gas is building up before the burner turns on. Ignoring the issue can lead to a house fire.

    2. Tripping Fuses

    One tripped fuse can be a glitch. One tripped fuse every five minutes? This is a clear warning your system is shutting things down before they get dangerous. Persisting in rebooting HVAC equipment can lead to fires or worse. It’s imperative you shut your system down and call a reputable shop for repairs.

    3. Ant Invasions

    Certain elements of your heating and cooling equipment might attract pests. Ants are particular problems. As they swarm the unit, their little bodies get zapped by the electricity. Before long, you'll have a big glob of ant bods all stuck together, and several parts you need to replace. Ask your technician about parts designed to keep ants out.
