The heating system in your home provides you and your family with comfort and coziness, but it’s important to react at the very first sign of trouble. Putting off getting a replacement unit or having repairs done means that before you know it, you could find yourself shivering in your home while winter storms converge around you!
There are a few different types of heating systems in residential settings, such as furnaces, heat pumps, boilers and radiators. Furnaces, also known as forced-air systems, are the most common. At AmeriServ, we deal with installing and repairing furnaces frequently, and as with any heating equipment, there are a few warning signs that homeowners should take note of, besides the heat simply not blowing.
Signs that Your Furnace Needs Repair:
• Unusual or loud sounds. Heating and cooling units alike make some type of sound, but if you notice a difference in the noise your furnace is making, especially if it is a banging our whining sound, there could be trouble.
• Your electric bills are suddenly higher. When your heater isn’t functioning at full potential, it has to run harder and for longer periods of time to stay at a set temperature.
• Lower air quality than usual. An old furnace could be contributing to dust and allergens being spread around in your home, making it more difficult to breathe, or resulting in congestion and sinus problems.
• Your pilot light is yellow. The pilot light of your furnace should be blue, which indicates that the gases are in proper balance.
If you notice any of the above warning signs, make sure to contact an AmeriServ HVAC professional to perform an inspection immediately. Diagnosing problems quickly can prevent having to replace your entire heating system altogether.
