Expert HVAC Repair in the Cockeysville Area

When the temperatures are rising and a heat wave is underway, the last thing you need is for your HVAC system to malfunction. And if single-digit temperatures are in the forecast, you depend on reliable heat. If your heating or air conditioning isn’t working properly, you need to get it fixed, and fast.

Homeowners throughout the Cockeysville area know they can depend on us for emergency HVAC repair. In case you didn’t know, HVAC stands for Heating, Ventilation, and AC. Our HVAC technicians are trained to quickly diagnose the problem and make the needed repairs to get your home comfortably warm or cool again.

It’s no fun taking cold showers, sitting in front of a fan, or sweating bullets. It’s also not fun to have to bundle up in a hat, coat, and mittens inside your home. And if you have an infant or elderly person in your home, a malfunctioning HVAC system can be dangerous. Don’t delay – you can call us 24/7 and we’ll respond within the hour.

When you call, tell us a little bit about your HVAC system, and what’s going on. We’ll then dispatch a technician with a van loaded full of the tools and parts necessary to make most repairs.

Signs You Need HVAC Repair

Your HVAC system is made up of a heating unit (furnace, heat pump, or boiler), ductwork and vents, and an air conditioning unit. The signs that you need HVAC repair will differ based on whether the problem is with your heating or cooling unit.

However, there are some general signs you need air conditioning repair or heating repair, including:

  • No air is coming from the vents even though the system is on.
  • Warm air is blowing from the registers when the AC is on, or cool air when the heat is on.
  • The system is cycling on and off quickly.
  • Your electric or gas bill is dramatically higher without an increase in rates or drastic change in temperatures outside.
  • You need to adjust the thermostat quite a bit to stay reasonably comfortable.
  • The AC unit or heating unit is making loud noises.
  • You smell a strange odor when the HVAC system is turned on.
  • You have high humidity in the house even when the central AC is on.
  • You see puddles around the base of the indoor AC unit or ice forms on the outdoor unit.
  • You have uneven heating or cooling – too warm in one room, freezing in another.

If you’ve noticed any of these signs, don’t delay in calling to schedule HVAC repair.

Repair or Replacement

In some instances, we may recommend that you replace your HVAC system. This might be the case if:

  • The cost of repairs is 50% or more of the cost of a new system.
  • You need HVAC repairs more frequently.
  • The system is more than 20 years old.
  • Parts needed to make a repair are no longer available.

New HVAC installation or HVAC replacement can be more cost-effective than continuing to make repairs. And today’s newer systems are incredibly energy-efficient, which can save you money on your utility bills. If we recommend replacing your HVAC system, we’ll give you a quote on a system properly sized for your home.

In most homes, the AC unit and the heating unit are about the same age. Since the two units work closely together, having what’s called a paired system or matched system is important to achieve maximum energy efficiency. This is why we recommend replacing both the heating and cooling units at the same time.

If needed, we can help you find the best deal on HVAC equipment that is properly sized for your home.
