It’s pretty clear that when your heating system isn’t working at all that it is time to call for heating repair. But how about when your heating system is still operational? Many homeowners hesitate to call for help when their heating system hasn’t stopped running. While the hope may be that the problem will just go away or “work itself out,” we can tell you this never happens. And waiting to repair a problem typically makes that problem worse. Here are some of the telltale signs that your heating system in Columbus, OH, needs some attention:

Odd Sounds

Your heating system really shouldn’t make very much noise, especially if you have a radiant or heat pump system. Combustion systems like a gas furnace or boiler will make some noise when the burner turns on, but loud noises like banging, clanging, buzzing or anything else that sounds odd means it’s time to call us for help.

Poor Performance

Heating systems are a necessity in Columbus, but that’s not all: your heating system needs to be reliable, too. If your system isn’t delivering the right volume or air or is struggling to reach the temperature you’ve set on your thermostat, the time has come for assistance.

Smells

Just as your heating system shouldn’t be loud, it also shouldn’t smell. Smells are definitely indicative of a problem, especially if you smell gas or a burning smell. Should you detect any kind of smell, particularly either of the latter mentioned, call for help immediately.

High Energy Bills

As the homeowner, you typically know what to expect for a monthly fuel or energy bill for your heating. If you find that your heating bill has suddenly shot up and you haven’t changed how you are heating your home, there’s a problem somewhere in your system.
