If you’ve got problems with your heater, there’s no time to wait. What technicians call “heating season” is coming up fast. If you’ve noticed problems with your heating system—or even if you haven’t noticed any problems yet—it’s time to call in your local HVAC technicians! We explain more in the short guide below.
Signs Your Heater Needs Repair
A heating system doesn’t have to be completely broken down before you schedule repairs. A seemingly small problem with your heater can spiral out of control faster than you think! All of the following issues are cause for a technician’s diagnosis:
- Odd noises.
- Slow performance.
- Low temperatures.
- Frequent cycling.
Beat the rush and call in technicians today!
Schedule Maintenance Before the Season Starts
One way to know whether your heating system needs repairs (even though it’s not acting up) is to schedule a maintenance visit with a trained professional. Actually, we recommend this service long before you turn your heater on (though it’s still a good idea at any point in the heating season). Professional heating system tune-ups include an inspection for repair needs, and technicians might be able to restore efficiently to the system.
Heating Repair Vs. Replacement
If a technician recommends replacing your heating system rather than repairing it, you may want to get a second opinion. However, this is often the best choice for systems over 15 years of age that are running into a lot of problems—and even for those that aren’t quite so old.
Eventually, your heater becomes more trouble to keep around than it’s worth. Efficiency goes way down, meaning you pay more each month. The parts wear out and may start to fail one by one, or all at once when you really need it to be operational! Be proactive in replacing your heating equipment so that you have peace of mind throughout the summer.
