Signs Your Heating System Needs a Repair
Although heating systems can break down seemingly out of nowhere, especially when they’re pushed to the limit on frigid nights, there are usually signs to look out for that indicate a repair is needed. Checking for these signs can signal you to call an HVAC professional and prevent more costly and expensive repairs from developing.
The Heater Won’t Turn On
If your heater won’t turn on at all, there are a few things to check before you call for a repair. Make sure the thermostat is working properly and set to “heat”; inspect the filter to see if it’s clogged or dirty; make sure the pilot light (on older furnaces) is lit; and check if the circuit breaker has tripped. If none of these issues are the culprit, contact Atlas Heating & Air Conditioning for emergency heating repair service.
Rising Energy Bills
Are your heating bills higher this winter than the year before? If so, something might not be working right with your furnace or heating system. And, unfortunately, the longer you wait to have the situation assessed, the more serious and expensive the issue can become.
If some rooms in your home are cooler or warmer than others, there could be a few issues at play, and you may need to call for a heater repair. Some of the common causes of inconsistent temperatures include improperly sealed ductwork, dirty air filters, obstructed vents, a blocked condenser unit, dirty coils, and outdated HVAC components. You may need a repair or replacement service to fix the problem.
Furnace short cycling occurs when your system turns on and off too frequently without properly heating your home. This is a serious issue that can cause increased wear and tear on your system and high energy bills. Furnace short cycling is frequently caused by clogged furnace filters, thermostat issues, an improperly sized system, air leaks, or broken components.
Odd Odors or Noises
Anything out of the ordinary coming from your furnace should raise a red flag. This includes unpleasant odors and loud noises. It is normal for heat pumps to emit a slight burning odor the first time the auxiliary heat is used. Your furnace shouldn’t emanate any foul odors. If it does, it could be due to a water leak that has caused mold to grow or because of an electrical issue that has created a burning smell. An HVAC contractor should be contacted immediately if you notice these heater problems.
