Luckily, these red flags are easy enough to spot when you know what to look for.
Are you noticing any strange noises? While this could have more to do with your home than your heating system, listening for anything out of the ordinary for normal heater operations may be the key to diagnosing a problem. Clanging, grinding, and shrieking sounds all typically indicate an issue with the mechanics of your appliance. These issues are troublesome at the very least but could also be dangerous. If you notice anything odd, call the professionals to be safe.
While we all know that the winter season is rich with all manner of health issues, these ailments occurring only when the heat is on or happening more frequently than is normal for the season could indicate a faulty gas line in your home. Faulty lines result in the leakage of dangerous Carbon Monoxide. Recognizing the symptoms of Carbon Monoxide poisoning is the first step to combating them. The next step is to dial in the experts as soon as symptoms appear.
Heating comes at a cost, but is that cost substantially higher this month than it was last month? Aside from using your heater twice as much as before, there is one other reason your heating bill could have skyrocketed so high. A malfunction in your unit could be to blame, and is luckily fixable if caught in time. Don’t pay more for warmth than you have to, bring in HVAC specialists to get your system up and running smoothly again. Your wallet will thank you.
With the stress of winter comes the urge to take care of heating issues immediately, and doing it yourself is tempting. However, contacting a certified technician is always the safer judgment call.
