4 Scary Things That Can Happen to Your HVAC System

These Problems Will Haunt Your Home

The fall season is a time for spooks and scares, but nothing is as terrifying as a problem with your HVAC system! From gas leaks to pest infestations, you'll be haunted by these issues if unprepared! Read on as we discuss some of the scariest things that can happen to HVAC and how our team can help.

Gas Leaks

One of the scariest things that can happen to your HVAC system is a gas leak. Gas leaks are not only dangerous, but they can also be very expensive to repair. If you suspect a gas leak, it's crucial that you leave the area immediately and call 911. When you're ready to get the gas line back up and running, our team will be there to help.


Pest infestations are another scary issue that can plague your HVAC system. Mice, rats, and other pests can cause serious damage to your ductwork and insulation. Not to mention, they can also spread diseases! If you see any signs of pests in or around your HVAC system, it's important to call a professional right away for an effective solution.

A Dirty Compressor

Your compressor can also lead to big problems for your HVAC system. A dirty compressor can cause your system to overheat, break down, and, in extreme cases, even cause an explosion! To avoid this scary situation, be sure to have your system serviced and cleaned on a regular basis.

Leaking Refrigerant

Leaking refrigerant is the last issue on our list, but it's certainly not the least spooky!  Leaking refrigerant can cause your energy bills to skyrocket and severely damage your HVAC system. If you notice any leaks, it's important to call us right away for repairs.

With all of this information, we hope that the only frights you experience this season are from trick-or-treaters! Have a safe and happy Halloween and don't forget to contact AWS Plumbing, Heating & Cooling with any HVAC or plumbing concerns.
