A heating breakdown in the middle of winter can provide health risks for some populations, as well as result in long cold evenings for your family until the issue is fixed. However, our technicians can provide you with tips to identify issues before a breakdown occurs. Frequent signs a breakdown may take place are:
• A steadily rising energy bill. An inefficient or damaged heating system will have trouble properly heating your home to the temperature on your thermostat. As a result, it will run much more frequently and raise your heat bill in the process.
• An aging or outdated furnace. Older furnaces usually start to show wear, resulting in an increase in the number of repairs needed on a yearly basis. If you’ve noticed your furnace has needed many repairs recently, it may be a sign your furnace needs replaced.
• Your furnace is making odd noises. Strange noises are a common sign of a heater that may be in need of repair. Banging, thumping, rattling and rumbling noises are often cause to have your system assessed by a technician.
