Winter is the last time you want to deal with heater malfunctions and breakdowns, but the trained technicians at Horizon Services of Lakewood can help before your system stops working altogether. Some common signs a breakdown may be imminent are:
• Unexplained increases in your heating bill. If your system is having trouble maintaining the temperature set by your thermostat, it may need to run constantly to provide the same amount of heat to your home. This increase in run-time will show an increase in your energy bill.
• Old furnaces. As your heating system ages, it will likely require maintenance and repairs more frequently. An uptick of service calls may indicate that your furnace isn’t aging well.
• Odd noises. Unexplained, strange noises emanating from your heating system such as banging, rattling, and rumbling can indicate an issue with one of the parts of your heating system.
