Heating & Cooling Problems
and for assistance after 5PM
Top Heating & Air Conditioning Complaints
- Heating & AC system will not get cool enough or warm enough
- Uneven room temperatures
- Strange odors
- Noisy units
These are the top complaints that we hear from customers calling us for HVAC assistance. Most of the phone calls we get are for scheduled maintenance, broken heating and air conditioning units, or systems not performing at the highest level. At the heart of all of these complaints, is comfort. People want to stay comfortable as the weather changes. We see many heating and air conditioning companies in Charlotte that focus on comfort. We agree that comfort is important, but it is not all you should be worried about.
The scary thing are the issues you do not know about. Comfort is important, but isn’t the safety of your family more important? Here at Killingsworth, we are shocked that we do not hear more Heating & AC companies talking about the serious health issues that can be caused by your HVAC system.
Top Heating & Air Conditioning Health Issues
- Asthma, allergies, or other breathing conditions
- Dry skin, irritated eyes, and dandruff
These are much more serious issues than just staying warm or cool. Did you know that in North Carolina indoor air quality is twice as polluted as outdoor air quality. Homes are now built so tight, that it does not allow fresh air in. That means it is important that the air in your home that you are breathing is not contaminated.
The materials used and how your heating and air conditioning system is installed, can go a long way towards ensuring the safety of your family. Minor changes can be the difference in you breathing in clean air or breathing in fiberglass. Another huge health concern is a system leaking refrigerant. It is so common to hear heating and air conditioning companies tell you that you are a pound low on refrigerant, and they can fill it up for a modest price. Did you know that your system’s refrigerant is only supposed to be filled up twice in the lifetime of the unit? If you are doing it more than that, then your system is leaking, and you are breathing in dangerous chemicals. It is always great to hear that an HVAC repair is inexpensive, and you just need to fill up the refrigerant to get you back to comfortable temperatures in the house. How much is your family’s health worth? Your doctor bills may be much more expensive down the road.
Another huge threat to your health is mold. Think about your heating and cooling system and where it is in your home. Your system is in a cold or humid dark place and it produces 17 gallons of water every day. If you have a leaky system, it can potentially lead to a huge mold problem. This is just one more thing you will be breathing if your system is not installed, repaired or maintained by the right heating and air company. Killingsworth is the only HVAC company in Charlotte that is qualified to do mold remediation.
The final issue that you need to be concerned about is the quality of work. Small issues can turn into very big issues. The wrong advice or sub par HVAC service and inspection could cost you thousands more dollars or impact the health of your family. These are not things to take lightly when deciding on the right heating and air conditioning company for you. A bad HVAC technician cannot only overlook issues, but even over cleaning, oiling or tightening items on your heating and cooling system can actually do more harm than good.
