Have you ever heard the expression “rust never sleeps”? It means that no matter how well constructed something is, it will eventually need maintenance or repair in order to continue working as designed. Your property's heating and cooling system is no exception. Just as you would not expect a car to continue running dependably without an occasional oil change or tune-up, your furnace or air conditioner needs to be inspected and maintained on a regular basis in order to continue providing dependable service.
The experienced team of certified technicians at Bryans Mechanical offers professional cooling and heating repairs in Nanaimo and throughout the surrounding areas of Vancouver Island. With more than 20 years of experience, we have the knowledge and skills to ensure that all components of your property's comfort system continue to operate safely, reliably, and at maximum efficiency.
Signs Your Heating and Cooling System Might Need Repair
It is important to be aware of changes in your property's heating and cooling system, and address them without delay so that small, easily fixed problems don't evolve into complicated, expensive repairs. Here are some indicators that serve as a warning that your system needs attention:
1. Unusual Sounds
Chances are you are already familiar with the sound made by your heating and cooling equipment when it is operating correctly, so any change should be noticeable. If you start to hear whistling or whining noises, groaning or clanking sounds, consult with our professionals right away.
2. A Loss of Power
If your system suddenly loses power or shuts down unexpectedly because of a tripped breaker, there is likely a problem with the electrical supply. It's important to consult with our team immediately as any electrical problem poses as a fire risk.
3. Foul Odours
If you notice an unpleasant aroma coming from your heating or cooling equipment, it is a good idea to find out what is causing it. Some causes are easily fixed, such as a musty smell caused by a water leak or a need to have the equipment cleaned, but other odours are indicators of more serious problems. For example, a burning smell is cause for alarm because it typically means that the electrical wiring has been compromised or something is causing the system to overheat.
4. Other Indicators
Sometimes it is not the equipment itself that provides a warning of problems, but issues such as inconsistent temperatures in different rooms, a reduced air flow from vents, or a sudden increase in utility costs that serve as warning signs. A good rule of thumb is to consult a repair expert if you notice anything that is out of the ordinary.
