Signs Your Heater May Need Repair
For the average person who hasn’t experienced problems with their heater before, it may be difficult to understand when something is wrong. Unless the issue your heater is flat out not working, many issues may be overlooked and can turn into larger problems. Below are some common signs your heater is struggling:
- Unusual Sounds: Many older heating systems may typically make loud or unusual noises. However, if your system is fairly new and it starts becoming noisy, this may be a sign some of the components inside your system are not working correctly or are becoming loose. A high-pitched noise like squealing could mean there are problems with the bearings, or a rattling could indicate there is a problem with the motor or fan.
- Thermostat Adjustments & Uneven Temperatures: If you find yourself adjusting your thermostat constantly throughout the day to get to the temperature you want it to be, you might have a problem with the heating system itself. Problems with your heater can cause cold and warm spots in your house, making you feel like you need to adjust your thermostat often. Your house should be at a fairly even temperature in every room if your heater is working efficiently and correctly.
- Short Cycling: If you notice your heater turning on and off frequently, it may be short cycling. This problem is caused by overheating of the heat exchanger. This is a serious issue in your heating system and should be looked at as soon as possible.
- Increased Energy Bills: Only you know how high or low your bills should be each month. If you know during the winter months your energy bill never tops $150 but for two months in a row your bills have increased significantly, you might have a problem. Your heater could be running inefficiently due to age or another underlying problem.
- Old Age: Everything has an expiration date. Any machine you use often will experience wear and tear, and your heater is no exception. If you know your heater is older than 10-15 years and you experience frequent repairs, it might be time for an entirely new system.
Here’s What to Do if Your Heater Suddenly Stops Working
