Hopefully, you’ve scheduled your heating maintenance appointment and have already been made aware of any repair needs you’re facing. If you have not, however, the time to do so is now. Temperatures aren’t anywhere near as cold as they’re going to get, but they are certainly dropping, signaling that fall is here.
Without proper heating system maintenance, you may easily find yourself facing one of the following four warning signs that something is wrong with your heater. If you do, be sure to give our team a call for prompt repairs.
1. Insufficient Heat
One of the biggest signs that something is wrong with your heater is simply that it’s not providing enough heat. This can be a particularly frustrating problem, as no matter what type of heater you have this means it’s failing as doing its only purpose. There are many reasons this might be happening, which a quick call to our technicians will help resolve.
2. Cold Spots
If you find that your home isn’t being evenly conditioned by your heating system, be sure to seek professional assistance. If you have a ducted system like a furnace or heat pump, the problem might be that you have leaky ducts impeding airflow. If you have a zone system, then the issue could be with one of your dampers.
3. Increased Energy Bills
One of the most common signs that something’s wrong with your heating system is that your bills are rising despite not using your heater any more than you did last year or even in the previous month. This is a sign that your heater isn’t working as efficiently as it should be, and definitely warrants a repair call.
4. Lukewarm Air Coming From Vents
If you find you have cool or lukewarm air coming out of the ducts instead of the warm air you demanded from your system, you mind have a malfunctioning thermostat or a more serious problem with your heat pump or furnace.
