Rapid Air LLC > Blog > Signs That Heating Repairs Are Needed

As the winter season approaches, you must check your heating system as they provide you and your family with warmth. But it would help if you didn’t take this for granted. Instead, you should pay close attention to how your heater works and look out for any signs that indicate that your heating system might need a repair. 

In this article, we will see some of the common warning signs your heating system is failing. Contact any heating repair in Yuma, AZ, as early as possible if you notice any of these.

  • Strange smells

If you operate the heater, you shouldn’t smell anything strange. If you detect something unfamiliar coming from the vents, it means that something is burning or something is wrong with the system. If the smell tends to vanish after a few hours, it is not a matter of concern. However, if the burning smell persists, it could signify a major problem needing repair, like a broken electrical or mechanical part. Don’t avoid this sign, as it can result in a fire or a total furnace breakdown.

  • Clunking, banging, or screeching noises

If your heating system makes clunking, banging, or screeching noises, it is a warning sign. Generally, heating systems make slight noises, but you should call your heating system professional right away if you hear anything unusual. 

Strange noises coming from your heating system means that a part has become loose or been worn down. The quicker you have your system checked by a professional, the better are the chances you won’t have a complete failure.

  • Cold spots

Have you observed that heating doesn’t seem to work in some regions of the house, while in other spots, it works properly? This is a general problem in homes that have problems with HVAC ductwork. As strange as it may seem, uneven heating is a common issue in older homes. But do call an expert to check the status of your heating system and see what can be done to improve its performance. 

  • Low air quality 

When the heating system is on, and you find any dust on the surface of carpets, it can decrease the quality of air inside the house. This happens because of blocked furnace filters. It disrupts the quality as well as the distribution of good quality air in an enclosed space.

  • High electricity bills

When you see a massive leap in electricity bills, it might be because your system is not working correctly. It also means that your heating system has become old and can no longer handle a large amount of load. Get a glimpse at your electricity bills from the previous year during the same period, and compare the bills.
