With the weather drastically cooling down here in Crown Point, IN it’s no secret that you need a fully functional heating system to get you through the next few months. Hopefully, you’ve had routine maintenance done within the last year to ensure your heating system is ready for its job. Either way, however, no heater is immune to problems.
If you do discover that your heater is in need of repair, it’s best to have it done as soon as possible, to avoid costlier problems down the road—or worse, being stuck without heating in the middle of a cold winter day. Here are 4 signs that it’s time to call one of our professionals to repair your heater.
1. Cold Air
Have you noticed that cool air is coming through your air ducts rather than warm air? There could be a variety of reasons for this. It may be as simple as a thermostat problem. However, it could be indicative of a more serious problem, so do be sure to call our professionals for assistance if you notice this problem.
2. Insufficient Heat
One of the most apparent signs of a heater in disrepair is that it’s not heating your living space as much as it should. Since the entire job of your heating system is to heat, this is of course an extremely frustrating problem to have! This can be caused by any number of things, some more serious than others.
3. A Spike In Utility Bills
Have you noticed that your energy bills have suddenly increased over what you paid last year, despite comparable use? If so, don’t assume that electricity has just gotten more expensive. The problem could actually be your heating system itself. It may not be working as efficiently as it once was, or it could have a problem within it that’s preventing it from performing at its best.
4. Uneven Heating
Perhaps your heater is heating, but you’ve noticed some cold spots in your home. If you are using a forced-air heating system—such as a furnace—then the problem is likely with your ductwork. Damage may have occurred or a connection may be loose. Be sure to call on our professionals to assess.
