There’s nothing worse than freezing in your Rocky Point, North Carolina, home due to a heater malfunction. You may need to call for professional assistance as soon as possible to prevent higher repair costs. Look out for the following three signs that you need urgent heating repair.
Strange Sounds Coming from Your Unit
Strange sounds that suddenly come from your car signal that something is wrong, and the same is true for your heating system. Don’t ignore any new or unusual sounds like squealing, humming, rattling, or clunking. When your furnace makes any of these noises, it needs immediate attention. Call in a trained professional to investigate the problem and prevent a costly repair.
Increased Heating Bills
If your utility bills suddenly spike during the winter months, your heating system may be the culprit. Your heating system may be working much harder than usual. If this is the case, the lack of energy efficiency means that you are using more electricity to barely heat your home. It’s best to schedule regular HVAC maintenance to avoid higher costs, sudden repairs, and discomfort in your home.
If you always struggle with getting the temperature right in your home despite repeatedly adjusting your thermostat, your heater may not be operating efficiently. You shouldn’t have to adjust your thermostat more than once a day. Even if you have a programmable thermostat, it will not find the right temperature for your home if your heating system isn’t working properly. You will need to call in a professional technician to inspect your furnace.
If your heating system is displaying any of these signs and not operating at an optimum level, contact Airmax Heating & Cooling so one of our HVAC technicians can diagnose your heating problem.
