How do you know when your heater is having problems? Yes, you know if your heater is not working and your house is freezing in the winter. But there are other problems your heater can have that don’t always mean a complete shutdown or malfunction. Hal Mechanical wants to help you know what some of the signs are so you know when to call for a heating repair.
Heat On But Not Blowing Hot Air
When your heater is not blowing the air at the temperature you set it to then you’ll definitely need to call the professional to come to repair it. When this happens, it can be hard to realize that this is happening at first. The reason is that it is still blowing warm air, but not to the temperature you set. So, over time your house will feel colder and you will notice that the air doesn’t feel as hot blowing into your home. You can up your thermostat but it still will not get to the temperature you want to.
High Heating Bills
Very high heating bills are not something we enjoy having. So, when your heating bill starts to creep up very high this can be an indicator that you have a problem with your heater. Yes, your bills will go up when you are using your heater in the winter but if it is a more extreme increase in your heating bill then there is something wrong with your heater.
Cold Spots in House
Have you noticed that there are some colder spots in your home? Maybe you have noticed that the air is just not blowing warm air out of those vents. If this is happening in your home and no matter what you do there are still cold spots. Then you need to call a professional to come to look at your heater. If there are cold spots that is a good indicator that something is wrong with your heater.
Strange Sounds from Furnace
If you were hearing a strange sound coming from your heater that is not a good sign. If there are any loud or strange sounds something is going on with your heater that is not right. Any rattling, banging, squeaking, and squealing are all sounds that happen when something is going wrong with your heater. You do not want to wait too long before you call a professional. If there is something wrong with your heater and you leave it, it could make it worse.
Poor Indoor Air Quality
In your home, you do not want to have bad air quality. When we talk about bad air quality we are talking about the dust and dirt that is floating around in your house. If you have noticed an increase of dust and dirt in your home it could be because you have bad air quality and you need to get your heater fixed. If your heater is having problems that can increase the quality of airflow in your home.
