Do You Need to Have Your Heating System Repaired

When the fall turns into winter in New England, you need the heater at your property to deliver heat, which is something that we like to call “warm comfort.” Did you know that either a furnace or a heat pump is the heart and soul of your heating system? That means you cannot take it for granted that it’s going to automatically work each and every time that you turn on the heat. The bottom line is that you need to pay careful attention to how your heating system is working. In essence, you need to learn the signs that your heating system is not working correctly.

If that’s the case, you should schedule a heating repair service with us or another reputable HVAC company. So, what are the signs that your heating system isn’t working correctly? First and foremost, if you have cold spots throughout the property, it’s a tell-tale sign that your heating system is not functioning properly. In essence, some rooms may be a comfortable temperature while other rooms stay cold no matter how high you turn up the thermostat. Why is this happening? Your furnace could be having a hard time distributing heat in an even manner throughout the property.

In addition, the ductwork may be causing the problem because it’s failing to distribute the air evenly. Another sign that your heating system needs to be repaired is if you’re hearing funny sounds when you turn the heat on. All furnaces make sounds when they’re in operation, however, if you hear noises such as banging, clanking and or screeching then you may very well have a problem. These types of noises indicate that you need heating repair. When a motor bearing has worn out or even slipped out of place, your heating system will make a loud screeching sound.

Last but certainly not least, if you start smelling weird odors coming out of the heating vents then you probably have a heating related problem. For example, musty smells typically means that there’s mold and or mildew in your furnace. Although furnaces are hot and not a typical place where mold and mildew thrive, it does happen when an excessive amount of moisture and or humidity is present within the property.
