How Do I Know I Need Repairs on My Heater?
There are several signs that indicate some repairs may be needed on your heater. Take a look so you know what to keep an eye on. If you’re already experiencing one or more of them, it’s time to get in touch with an HVAC professional before things get worse (and more expensive!):
You’re finding more and more cold spots in your home
Cold or hot spots can often be due to sheer physics and the design of your home. However, if you’re dealing with them on a regular basis, you may have a problem with your heating system’s ductwork. This often occurs in older homes and lead to poor heating airflow. Don’t settle for having drafty spots in your home!
Feeling uncomfortable no matter how much you adjust the thermostat
This is a big one. If you’re blasting the heat and still feeling the chill, your system is not working efficiently. Save your sanity and your wallet by having your heater looked at.
Your utility bill is big
Your bill may go up before you even realize your heater needs repairs. Take a look at your bill and energy consumption. If it looks like your consumption is up but your habits and rates haven’t changed, it’s probably time to have your heater inspected. It’s likely not running as well as it should and will continue to cost you money.
Your air is dry and dusty in the winter
Poor air quality is a big red flag that your system isn’t performing efficiently. Remember, your system should condition the air it circulates. If you’re noticing an increase in dust, mildew, and the like, take a look at your filter. No change? You likely need heater maintenance or repairs.
Your heater is always running and making weird noises
For the most part, your heater should be pretty quiet. If it constantly sounds like things are going bump in the night (or day!), your furnace is likely breaking down.
You don’t know when your last tune-up was
Your HVAC system needs twice-yearly tune-ups to perform its best. If you’re scratching your head trying to remember the last time you had one, schedule one as soon as possible to avoid expensive issues down the line.
It smells like something is burning
It’s not uncommon to smell a musty odor when your heater runs for the first time in the season. If you smell this odor regularly, it may point to bigger issues and warrants a professional inspection stat.
Your heater short cycles
This means it is cycling or running on and off frequently. You’ll see a licensed HVAC professional to take a look and see what the problem is.
