When to Call for Heating Repair

We’re not expecting you to know every sign that you need heating repair in your home. This is why we’ve rounded up all the top signs of heating trouble. If you have any of these problems, it’s time to schedule an appointment with our team members.

1. You’re Paying Too Much

So … your electric bills have made you balk all fall and winter so far and you can’t figure out what’s up—the problem is more than likely with your heater. An unusually high electric bill is often the first sign that something has gone awry with your heating system. If you notice a dramatic leap in costs that you can’t explain, it’s time to contact our professionals. We’re the ones that can get your system back on track.

2. Hot and Cold Spots in the House

Do you have hot and cold spots throughout your home? Uneven heating and cooling are symptoms of a failing heating system. We know that some homes naturally run a little on the hotter or cooler side, but you shouldn’t have to deal with extreme temperature imbalances. If this is a problem that you’re having, then it’s time to call for repair.

3. You’re Always Turning Up Your Thermostat

Do you feel like you spend too much of your day just cranking your heater higher and higher? This is a major problem. Turning the heat up beyond what’s reasonable or what’s typical for your home means that your heater isn’t working as efficiently as it should be. Furnace repair work will save you money.

4. Your System Makes Questionable Noises

Does your heater make noises that make you concerned? Noises like banging, grating, or even rattling are common if you have a home heater problem. Your heater operation should be relatively quiet, although not completely silent. Don’t ignore these noises—call our team ASAP.

5. The House Has IAQ

Does the air in your home feel dusty or hazy? This could be a sign that something is seriously wrong with the furnace. Watch out for a change in your air quality or any of the members of your home experiencing trouble with any respiratory issues. Your first step is to change your filter. The second step is to call a professional.
