With the chilly late-fall temperatures finally making their appearance, there is no better time than now to have your heating system serviced to ensure it is in working order. During your yearly maintenance appointment, your HVAC technician will be able to inform you of any issues with your system. If these issues are left untreated, the repairs can be extremely costly and a failed heating system can cause other issues throughout your home.
At the beginning of the fall season, you should be inspecting your system and keeping an eye out for the following signs. If you notice any of them, it might be time to replace your heating system.
A heating system that is well maintained should make little to no noise. If you do notice that your system starts to making noises, this can be caused by several factors such as broken components and build-up in the heating system, and it’s crucial to make an HVAC appointment as soon as possible to diagnose the issue.
Your heating system should only be running when it needs to be reaching your desired temperature. If you notice that yours seems to be constantly running, this is a red flag for a major repair or replacement.
When your heating system is running, you might notice excessive condensation on your windows. This happens when your heating system is blowing out excessive moisture and we recommend giving your technician as soon as possible because it can be a sign of other issues.
High Heating Bills
Have you recently noticed a spike in your heating bills? Your furnace could be the problem! Before worrying too much, we recommend looking at past heating bills for the same time period to compare how much of a difference there really is. As your heating system ages, you will have small increases in costs month-to-month, but large spikes in costs could be a sign of another issue.
