In the spring, wildlife and insects usually awaken from their winter slumbers. Their search for food, water, and shelter can lead them into your home. If left unchecked, small pest populations can grow into full-blown infestations, making you require professional bug removal services.
Normally, a properly functioning air conditioner makes occasional pops, hisses, rattles, and a quiet hum that shouldn't be a cause for concern. However, if you notice a loud humming or buzzing noise, your unit is probably malfunctioning. Several issues can cause a humming air conditioner. Let's take a closer look at them along with their solutions.
If you're like most homeowners, you just have a basic knowledge of how your HVAC system works. At times, this lack of in-depth knowledge can leave you wondering whether the equipment is operating normally, or there's a problem that needs professional attention.
A defective A/C condensate drain is a common cause of water damage inside homes. Condensate is simply water vapor condensed into liquid by contact with the cold evaporator coil in the A/C’s indoor air handler. Whenever your air conditioner is running it’s producing condensate — as many as 20 gallons on a humid day. As long as everything’s working right, the condensate is collected and diverted away down a line into your household drain system. If something goes wrong, however, gallons of water may end up spilled into your home — often before you even realize there’s a problem.
