4 Signs you May Need Heating Repair
We know that the last thing you want is for your heater to break down in the dead of winter. It's never fun to need to repair your heating system and it's certainly not fun when it breaks down completely. To avoid sudden heater system failures and make sure that you and your household stay warm, here are 4 signs to be on the look out for, in order to avoid having your heater completely break down.
Odd noises from Your Vents - Strange noises that come from your heating system are sometimes easy to ignore. An odd noise from your vents is something that isn't a bother, but in reality it can be an early indicator of a major mechanical issues. If you hear a buzzing noise, pop or bang, this could be your heat exchanger failing.
Heating Bill is Very Expensive - Do you notice you heating bill going up month over month and you just can't seem to get the bill to go down?? This also could be a problem with your heating running nonstop or not cycling properly.
Increasing the Thermostat Never Seems to Warm The Home - No matter how much you increase the temperature on your thermostat, your home never seems to get warm enough. Your heating system running nonstop and cause parts to wear down ever quicker, meaning you'll likely have to replace the system sooner rather than later.
Your heater cycles on and off frequently - We call this, "short-cycling" and it shouldn't be ignored. If you heater or AC is short cycling it's because the unit isn't running long enough to complete a heating cycle.
