Signs Your Heater Needs to be Repaired
During the colder months of the year you rely on your heater to keep you and your family warm and comfortable. Due to the fact your heater stays off for half the year, it is possible for your heater to have taken some damage during that time. When an issue comes up with your heater, don't hesitate to schedule repairs immediately. Here are some of the signs of heater repair to look for:
- Odd smells - While it is common for the heater to smell like the fuel it uses when first turned on, that smell is supposed to dissipate over time. If you notice, however, a strong smell around the unit that either appears suddenly or is a constant smell that won't go away, this is a sign of problems. This can be caused by a wide range of issues inside the unit.
- High Energy Bills - If you notice your electricity bills are higher than they should be, your HVAC system can be the cause. Over time a heater becomes less efficient at heating your home. This drop in efficiency means it takes longer to warm your house and your heater needs to work harder, which raises energy bills.
- Strange noises - Old heating systems are known to make occasional rattling and banging noises. Typically these strange noises come from loose motor or fan parts bouncing around inside your heater. If you hear any unusual noise coming from your heater, don't hesitate to call B & J Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc..
- Short Cycles - Short cycling is when your heater turns on and off constantly. When a heater starts to short cycle, it means the heat exchanger overheats. This overheating causes the heater to shut off until it can cool down again.
Most people wait until winter to get their heating system inspected. Regular inspections are imperative to a properly functioning heater. If you've experienced any of these signs with your heater, call the heating repair experts at B & J Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. today to get the necessary repairs!
5 Strange Noises From Your Heater & What They Mean
Strange noises emanating from your heater can be concerning, but understanding the various types of heater noises and what they mean can help you address potential issues promptly. Here, we'll explore common heater noises and their possible implications:
- Banging or Clanging: If your heater emits loud banging or clanging noises, it could indicate an issue with the heating element or heat exchanger. This might require professional attention to prevent further damage.
- Rattling or Vibration: Loose components, such as screws or fan blades, can create rattling or vibrating sounds. Regular maintenance and tightening of loose parts can resolve this problem.
- Whistling or Hissing: Whistling or hissing noises suggest air leaks in the system, possibly from cracked ducts or loose connections. Addressing these leaks can improve heating efficiency and reduce energy consumption.
- Screeching or Squealing: A screeching or squealing sound typically indicates a problem with the blower motor or fan belt. Lubrication or replacement of the affected parts may be necessary.
- Popping or Clicking: These sounds are often normal as the heater heats up or cools down. However, persistent popping or clicking may indicate mineral deposits in the system, which can be resolved through flushing and cleaning.
If you encounter any of these heater noises, it's essential to consult a professional HVAC technician for a thorough inspection and necessary repairs. Addressing these issues promptly can ensure your heater operates efficiently and safely throughout the colder months.
Is HVAC Maintenance Necessary?
HVAC maintenance is necessary to prevent problems and extend the lifespan of a system. All furnace manufacturers recommend annual maintenance and inspections. These inspections are beneficial to clean the internal components of the heating system. They are also important because a technician can spot and address any minor issues before they would develop into major problems that would require extensive repairs or even a replacement.
Lower Energy Bills & Maximize Performance
Performance and efficiency decline as heating equipment ages or if your equipment is not properly maintained. Regular maintenance improves performance, prevents unexpected breakdown, and reduces monthly energy costs by as much as 25%. In addition, our technicians are often able to find and repair minor problems before they grow into larger, more complex repair issues. Let our technicians thoroughly inspect and tune up your system, so your home is ready for any weather.
We provide heating system maintenance for:
- Gas furnaces
- Electric heaters
- Heat pumps
- Hybrid heat pumps
- Geothermal heat pumps
Our manual tune-up and inspection process includes all major system components, cleaning filters, checking safety controls and air ducts, inspecting the system for leaks, and more. When you enroll in our Service Partner Plan, you will receive annual system maintenance for your heating and cooling systems for one affordable yearly fee.
