It’s Time to Call When…

Here are a few signs your home could benefit from heating repair. Make sure you call us when you need the right heating services.

1. You Notice Strange Noises

Do you notice some weird noises when you run your heater? You might notice some odd noises like squeaking, popping, banging, scraping, or rattling. These are all noises that should alert you to a problem. All these noises mean that you’re flirting with significant heating damage. Call today and fix your heating problems.

2. You Feel Sick at Home

Did you know that an old, defunct furnace can make you feel sick in your home? The problem with a furnace is that it builds up dust, mold, and allergens throughout this time. This can cause respiratory problems for you and the other family members in your home. In more advanced cases, a furnace can start to break down and emit carbon monoxide which will cause problems like fatigue, dizziness, and headaches.

3. You Notice Some Odd Smells

Would you describe the scent of your home’s heater as “peculiar” or “interesting”? You shouldn’t notice any type of smell coming from your heating system. If you notice a funky smell, moldy smell, or a burning smell, then it’s time for you to schedule an appointment with the professionals on our team.

4. You Have Odd Energy Bills

It’s common to notice that you have higher energy bills during this time of the year. We’re in the deepest point of winter now, and you’re going to need your heater more often than ever. You should notice that your heating bill is a little higher than it was in fall, but if you’re paying significantly more, then you should schedule an appointment with our team.

5. You’re Experiencing Stark Temperature Differences

Are you noticing drastic temperature differences throughout your home? Your home comfort is never going to be perfectly even because there are natural disparities in every house.
