When Do I Schedule Heating Repairs?

We know that there are parts of the country that get much colder than it does around here, but that doesn’t mean that you can afford to take chances with your heating system. At some point, every heater is going to require repair services. When that point arrives, it is always in your best interest to schedule prompt heating repairs in Madera, CA. But how do you know when heating repairs are actually necessary?

There are quite a few warning signs that can alert you to the need for heating repairs. You just have to know what to look out for. Read the following information, and remember to contact us the moment that you suspect your heater is struggling or not functioning properly.

  • Strange sounds or odors are among the most common signs that all is not right with a heating system. Boilers should work nearly silently, and furnaces should not be very loud when running. If you hear a boiler rumbling, for instance, or hear a grinding coming from your furnace, do not ignore the issue. The same is true of any burning or fuel odors coming from these systems. Just because heat is generated does not mean that the system is functioning properly or safely.
  • Uneven heating is another sign that your heater is not operating the way it should be. You may have a problem with the fuel delivery system, or the heat distribution system may be compromised. This could mean leaks in your ductwork, or in your hydronic tubing. The latter can do real damage to your home, while both can waste a lot of energy. Of course, you may also just have weak spots in your home’s thermal envelope or insulation. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem for you.
  • High heating costs can also indicate a problem with a heater. Now, there is bound to be some variation in the amount that you pay in order to heat your home. If your bills start rolling in and are much higher than they were last year, though, there’s a good chance that a problem of some kind is dragging down efficiency.
