5 Signs Your Heating System Might Need Repair

Is your aging heating system struggling to keep up with winter temperatures?

Here are 5 signs that your heating system might need to be repaired or replaced.

1. Inconsistent or Poor Heating
A heating system that’s properly installed and operating normally should provide consistent, even temperatures throughout your entire home. If you notice areas within your home that are consistently colder, that could point to an issue with your heating system.
2. Strange Smells
Heating systems can sometimes give off odors, especially when first using it after months of inactivity. These odors are usually temporary and should dissipate quickly. If you find that your heating system is consistently producing an odor, it could signal a gas leak or that a thorough cleaning of the unit is needed.
3. Home Air Changes

If your heating vents have caused an increase in dust throughout your home, or you’re experiencing an increase in allergic reactions while using your home heating system, it could mean your heating system requires a new filter to be installed, or a professional cleaning. 

4. Constant Sounds
Under normal conditions, most modern heating systems operate with little noise. If your heating system is making loud or consistent noises that seem abnormal, such as scraping or banging sounds, it likely points to a mechanical malfunction and the need for repair. Such changes should be inspected by a certified technician as soon as possible to avoid further damage.
5. Heavy or Constant Usage
Modern heating systems are designed to maintain the desired temperature within your home, and to turn off once that temperature reached. If your heating system is constantly running with little to no downtime, it could mean that your heating system needs repair or is inadequate for the size of your home.
