Signs Your Heating System Needs Repair


Your heater, boiler or furnace is one of the most important components in your home. You rely on it a lot during the cold winter days. It gives you warmth and comfort throughout the winter months; so before the cold season comes, you have to make sure that it is working at its optimal efficiency. A poor system may cause burst pipes and provide poor quality indoor air. If you want indoor air that encourages good health and efficiently heats your home, take good care of your heater. Once major issues concerning your heater or furnace arise, it would be difficult to fix them. These are signs that your heating system needs repair.


Weird Smell

You may smell an odor when you first turn on your heater or furnace, and that’s completely normal. This weird smell could be dust burning off in the ducts. The smell dissipates after a few hours and is not a cause for concern. However, if you smell an odd, burning odor that doesn’t go away, this could be a sign of a major issue requiring repair, like damaged electrical or mechanical parts. These damaged parts smell like plastic or rubber burning.


Loud Noises

Do you hear your system making clanking or other odd noises? These noises are a warning sign of problems to come. Most systems normally make some small noises. But then, if you hear unusually loud noises, it’s time to call an HVAC contractor to take a look at your system. Weird noises coming from your system could mean a part has worn down. There may be a belt that needs replacement. The faster a professional checks your system, the better the chances you have of avoiding a total system failure that leaves you and your loved ones without heat.
