When Should You Call for Heater Work?
We know that’s the question on your mind if you’re here reading this blog, so let’s get to the answers. Below are signs that you need heating repair work.
1. You’re Just Not Warm Enough
Do you ever question why you’re even running your heater when you still have to layer on so much clothing and so many blankets just to stay warm? Don’t get us wrong, it’s cold here in Orland Park—but you shouldn’t have to struggle so much with heating your home. If your heater can’t … well … heat your house then it’s time for you to schedule an appointment for repair work.
2. Your Heating Bills Don’t Make Sense
Do your heating bills leave you perplexed? If you’re running the heater the same way that you always do but notice that your heating bills are shooting through the roof, it’s time for you to have repair work performed.
3. The Heater Is Experiencing Short Cycling
Does your heater start and stop on an endless loop all day long? This is what we call “short cycling” in the HVAC industry. Short cycling is terrible for your heater. It will eventually wear the heater down to the point of a breakdown and waste energy and money in the process.
4. You Notice Some Weird Sounds
Sounds like rattling, banging, grating, squeaking … pretty much anything out of the ordinary from the heater is a problem you need to address. These sounds are all warning signs that your heater has seen better days. Don’t wait for the unit the breakdown, however. Remain proactive and come to us when you notice these problems.
5. There Are Low Heat Levels / Low Airflow
You walk over to your thermostat, turn it on, hear it click on a moment later … and then notice that the sound of air rushing through your home’s vents is quieter than normal. What’s going on? You’re struggling with low airflow and low heat levels, but you don’t understand the source of the problem. We can help you pinpoint the source of the problem and skillfully fix it too.
