The Value of Locksmith Services

There are few things worse than coming home from work to find your home has been broken into. Sadly, this happened to me not long ago. My name is Jana, and I’m the single mother of two little girls. After reporting the burglary, a police officer suggested that I call a locksmith. The locksmith asked if I had any spare keys around the house that may have been stolen. Sure enough, I had some hanging on a key rack, and they were gone! I was worrying about jewelry and electronics; I never even thought to look for my keys. That night we replaced all my locks and rekeyed my car. To be extra safe, the locksmith made his next stop at my parents. (I had keys to their house on that key rack.) Locksmiths offer a valuable service; I’m happy to share why they're so great!

Did You Just Rent A Home? 3 Signs There Are Problems With The HVAC Unit

If you have just rented a home, you likely inspected things like the carpeting, walls, and ceiling to make sure the property was in good condition. One thing you may not have thought about when you were walking through the house is the HVAC unit because it is outside. If you are having trouble cooling the home, however, below are three signs that you'll need air conditioning repair.

Home Not Cool Enough

If you notice that your home is not cool enough, several factors could be the cause. Your HVAC unit has coils that absorb heat from the surrounding air so the air temperature can be cooler. If the coils are dirty, they are not be able to absorb the heat properly.

There could also be a leak in the refrigerant. Refrigerant is a very important part of your HVAC system because it flows through the coils to help move the heated air inside your home to the outside. If there is a refrigerant leak, heat would not be able to move out of your home.

Odors Coming Through the Vents

If you smell a burnt odor coming through your vents when your unit is running, the wires inside your unit could be burned out. If the odor is musty, this generally means there is mold inside of the ductwork or the HVAC unit. If you are smelling this musty smell, you should have your unit cleaned immediately as mold spores will get inside your home and create a very unhealthy for you and your family.

Weird Sounds

If you hear some weird sounds while your HVAC unit is running, such as grinding or squealing, there's likely a problem with a part inside the unit. For example, the motor may have broken bearings. If you are hearing a squealing noise, a belt has likely slipped, or it could mean there is a metal component inside the unit that needs to be lubricated.

Certain mechanical failures will require that the entire unit be replaced. Talk to an HVAC repair professional to find out if they can fix the issue or if you'll have to purchase a new unit.

If you have any of these problems, talk with your landlord. They should send out an HVAC contractor to repair or replace the unit for you immediately. They should also make sure they have the unit maintained regularly after it is repaired or replaced. This will help it last much longer.
