3 Common Signs That You Need Heating Repair

Homeowners often worry about their heating system if they begin to display any unusual behavior. This is completely understandable. If you don’t know which signs to watch out for, you may interpret any unusual behavior as symptomatic of a problem. While it is always a good idea to call for professional assistance if you believe your heater to be malfunctioning, you’ll be much better able to diagnose issues with your heater if you know the signs that accompany those issues. Let’s take a look at 3 common signs that you need heating repair.

Strange Noises

Strange noises are a very common sign of issues with your heating system. Grinding and squealing noises often indicate an issue with the air handler, while deep rumbling or booming noises could be located in either the heat exchanger or the burner assembly. It’s never a good idea to ignore strange noises that seem to just show up one day. If your heater starts making odd noises that you haven’t heard before, call a professional.

Rise in Heating Bills

Though your heating bills will naturally fluctuate from month to month, due to your differing demand for heat, a consistent rise in heating expenses signals a problem. This is a sign that your heater is not operating as efficiently as it should be, having to work harder and longer to accomplish the same heat output. This is a very subtle sign, but it indicates a serious problem. If your heating bill seems consistently high, call a professional to examine your system.

Uneven Heating

Uneven heating is a problem that can affect any kind of heating system, though the causes tend to differ. The source of uneven heating could be a misfiring burner, or a large duct leak, or any number of other issues that affect the production and distribution of heat. The only way to isolate the source of this problem is to closely examine the system. So, if one room never seems to warm up, while the others are boiling, you should call a professional to find out why.
