Arlington, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/10/2019 -- Texas Air Authorities' sharpshooters perform quality fixes
ARLINGTON, TX—Heating systems provide plenty of evidence when they are starting to fail and need repair. It's important for homeowners to pay attention to the warning signs to avoid more serious, costlier repairs or total system breakdowns.

One of the arms in Texas Air Authorities' fully stocked arsenal is its exceptional heater repair service in Arlington, TX, and nearby communities. This team has seen it all—and fixed it all.

As a result, the good guys at Texas Air are sharing five of the most common red flags that should send a homeowner scrambling to schedule an appointment with a skilled HVAC technician.

1. Strange noises
A quiet hum is normal. Loud clangs and bangs are not. Loud noises could mean problems with the blower wheel or motor. If metallic, scraping sounds are coming from the unit, it should be shut off immediately and inspected by an experienced HVAC tech. Ignoring the problem could result in the blower wheel disconnecting from the shaft or falling out of balance. When that happens, the blower housing can become seriously damaged. Another possible outcome is the motor could break away from the mount, causing even greater damage.

2. Hot and cold spots throughout the home
This could be an easy fix if the problem is a dirty filter or a blocked register. However, if the problem is blocked ductwork or undersized equipment, an HVAC technician can help.

3. Higher energy bills
When there's a significant drop in the temperatures for a period of time, energy bills are bound to rise. But when it's hard to find an explanation for higher costs, an inefficient system could be the culprit. This is the time to consider replacing the system with a newer, more energy-efficient unit.

4. Frequent repairs
This is another sign that a new, more energy-efficient system is probably a smart choice. An experienced technician from Texas Air can help homeowners consider their options.

5. Constant system run times
When a system runs constantly, it's another sign of inefficiency. Routine service and cleaning from a qualified technician could resolve the problem. Other causes include compressor or compressor valve problems, low refrigerant charge or undersized equipment or ductwork.
