The other day, we were alarmed when the HVAC system was making all sorts of crazy screeching noises. I didn’t want to keep running the air conditioning in this condition because I thought it might be causing damage. I immediately went to the thermostat to turn off the HVAC system. Then I called up our local HVAC company for help. I was happy to hear that they had a service professional who would be on his way shortly. When the HVAC service professional arrived, he tested the system to hear the noise. Then he immediately shut it off. He seemed to have a good idea as to what could be causing this horrible noise. He shut off the power to the HVAC unit and got to work. When he opened everything up, he discovered that there were some worn components in the HVAC system. He had to change out the bearings as well as the fan belt. He cleaned everything out nicely, and then had the air conditioner working as good as new. The service repair wasn’t overly costly, and we were thrilled that we had our air conditioning working great again, because it was really hot outside! The HVAC technician told us it was a good thing that we called for HVAC repair right away because it could have turned into a serious complication if we waited to have the A/C repaired. This is actually something I learned a long time ago to not wait for any type of needed repair. The longer you wait, the more costly the service repair will be!
