FAQs About Plumbing and HVAC Services in Carmel, IN and around Indianapolis

If your HVAC system is making banging, screeching, or rattling noises, a loose component may be moving around inside. Avoid damaging your unit by switching it off and contacting us for repairs.
The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating indicates the energy efficiency of a cooling unit. The lower the SEER rating, the better. At Bedell Home Services, we only install cooling units with a SEER rating of 14 or less.
The Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating indicates the energy efficiency of heating systems. A system with a rating of 50 means that it burns 50% of its fuel to generate heat and wastes the remaining 50%. At Bedell Home Services, we only install furnaces with an AFUE rating of 90% or higher.
Gas and oil furnaces rely on combustion to generate heat, but that doesn’t mean your unit should smell like smoke. If a burning smell is coming from your furnace, switch it off and contact us to clean and service it. We may also need to replace its air filter.
If your AC’s outside unit is dripping more water than usual, or the air handler is pouring water, it could be due to several reasons. Common culprits include a damaged drain pan, low refrigerant, clogged drain line, or broken condensate pump. Contact us at Bedell Home Services for quick diagnosis and repairs.
White or cloudy tap water may be due to over-chlorination or excess air bubbles trapped in the water. Excess bubbles are harmless and dissipate from the water within seconds, but over-chlorination can negatively affect your health. If your water is reddish, brown, or yellow, it may mean you have rusty pipes. If so, you need to have your pipes replaced. Blue or greenish water indicates algae and other contaminants in your water. We can provide water filtration solutions that eliminate such issues.
Your backed-up drain may be due to a break or clog in your sewer line or a malfunctioning backwater valve. At Bedel Home Services, we can perform a sewer line inspection to reveal the cause of the problem and the best way to fix it.
Hydro-jetting involves using high-pressure water to dislodge and flush accumulated debris from your water or sewage pipes. The service ensures optimal water pressure and prevents clogs. It also prolongs the life of your pipes. We recommend scheduling us to hydro-jet your pipes at least once a year.
We recommend scheduling our Bedell Home Services team for professional water heater tank cleaning at least once a year. It ensures clean water and prevents sediment build-up that can cause leaks or clogs.
