Common Signs You Might Ignore That Let You Know Your HVAC System Needs Servicing

Almost every company and business across the country will have an HVAC system of some kind, whether that is one that costs tens of thousands of dollars to install or a legacy holdover from the previous tenant that is starting to look a bit worse for wear. Whatever the case may be, all HVAC systems operate on much the same principle and often the same problems befall them. The main problem is that often owners don't recognize these warning noises and sounds before a major issue happens. Here are a few signs that your HVAC system needs a good service quickly.

Rattling That Is Not Connected To Your Commands

If, when you adjust your HVAC system, you can feel the machine shaking and rattling, then that makes sense (although it is not always good either and you may want to have that investigated too) as at least it is in response to your direct input. However, if you can feel the HVAC systems rattling, making noise, and spluttering just in their regular usage, then you should be more concerned. This indicates there are at least a few components inside that are loose or need to be replaced with a cleaner, stronger upgrade.


HVAC systems involve liquids and can, therefore, be a source of bacteria, mold, and mildew if you are not vigilant. Some nasty diseases can come from your HVAC system if you are not careful and have it regularly serviced. If you notice a lot of your employees getting sicker more regularly, or with the same flu, then you might want to have your HVAC system investigated to see if anything sinister is lurking in the filters or coolant. The last thing you want is an outbreak of disease that takes out the bulk of your workforce for a few weeks, so act quickly if you suspect something.


HVAC systems get a lot less efficient as they get older and the individual parts get worn down a little bit. HVAC system services need to be used to ensure that the parts that do have planned obsolescence get replaced with something new before they reach that breaking point. If they do break down this can have a domino effect and cause a lot more damage to your HVAC than you intended, which can be avoided if you keep to your regular scheduled maintenance. Being pragmatic and spending a little bit of time to make sure you're on the right track with your HVAC system is something every business should do.
