Regular maintenance can keep your home’s heating system operating efficiently. If there’s a problem, you may notice some of these signs. You shouldn’t ignore an issue because that can allow it to get worse and may cause the system to fail at the worst possible time, such as during a snowstorm. A Newtown heating specialist can conduct an inspection, pinpoint the source of the issue, and perform appropriate repairs.
You may notice a strange smell right after you turn on the heat. That may simply be dust in the ducts burning off. If the odor lingers for more than a few hours, however, it means that something isn’t right. For example, a part may be broken, or a filter may need to be replaced.
It’s normal for an HVAC system to make some sounds, but it should run quietly. If you notice a loud noise, such as grinding, screeching, or banging, call a professional.
If some parts of your house are colder than others, it may be due to a problem with the HVAC system, or there may be another cause. Make sure all the air ducts are open and check the windows for gaps and leaks. If you don’t detect a problem in either of those areas, the issue may lie with the HVAC system.
High Heating Costs
You may notice that your home heating bills have been gradually rising. That may mean that the system is not operating efficiently. A Newtown heating professional can figure out the reason and recommend repairs.
When an HVAC filter gets clogged with dirt, dust, and pet dander, it can lead to poor indoor air quality. If you or a member of your family has asthma or allergies and has experienced severe symptoms recently, it may be due to an HVAC filter that needs to be replaced.
