Warning Signs of a Heating System Meltdown

When the temperatures fall outside, the last thing you want to face is a heating system that just won’t work. Although sometimes a surprise malfunction can leave your heater in need of an emergency repair, there are often signs that your heating system is heading for a breakdown long before it actually quits. Protect your family from the harsh Boston winters and avoid the inconvenience of a mid-winter heater meltdown by calling your HVAC repair company when you notice any of these signs of trouble with your heating system.

Soaring Heating Bills

Is your house staying warm but your energy bills are shooting through the roof? If so, then it could be a sign that your heater is working harder than before to keep your home comfortable. Skyrocketing heating bills can be caused by a range of problems, from malfunctioning parts to poorly sealed air ducts. It’s important to let your HVAC repair service diagnose the cause and make the necessary adjustments to get your heater back in good working condition. Ignoring spiking heating bills could allow a minor problem to turn into major damage that could even cause you to need to replace your heating system.

Strange Noises

If your heat is accompanied by pops, bangs, rattles, and snaps, your heater is definitely trying to tell you something. These noises often indicate that a furnace has a part that needs to be repaired as soon as possible or it could lead to a complete breakdown. Get any kind of noises checked out by an HVAC service technician to find the source of the sounds and prevent further damage from occurring.

Unreliable Thermostat

Do you find that you are constantly turning your thermostat up and down just to maintain the temperature you want? Do some of your rooms feel warm while others are chilly? If it seems as if your thermostat is never quite giving you the right temperature, a problem with your HVAC system is likely to blame. Schedule a repair service as soon as possible to prevent the problem from becoming worse.

The best way to prevent problems with your heating system is to have maintenance service performed at least once per year, preferably before the winter season begins. If you haven’t had maintenance service recently, then you should schedule a visit as soon as possible.
