5 Signs Your Heater Needs Repairs
Part of being a responsible homeowner is paying attention to your appliances. More often than not, a heater will have various symptoms that can clue you in that repairs are needed. Some of these signs include:
- High Energy Bills: You never want to pay more than you have to on utilities, so you’ll often be able to tell if there is a spike month over month. If you haven't been doing anything outside of the norm, then a damaged heater can be to blame, especially during the winter months.
- Low Airflow: Part of the job of your heater is to distribute a strong flow of warm air throughout your home. If you’re putting your hand up to the vents, and noticing a decrease in airflow, there may be a mechanical issue to blame.
- Noisy Operation: Heaters and air conditioners make some noise during operation, but anytime you hear something outside of the norm, pay attention. Grinding, screeching, and whirring, are all indications that there is a mechanical failure inside the heater itself.
- System Turns On and Off: This is particularly common during the winter months when your heater is used the most. If your system is constantly turning on and off, without ever actually heating your home, there may be an electrical issue in the unit.
- Heater Older than 15: Most homeowners will avoid replacing their HVAC system like the plague. The reality is that after 15 years, those systems may deteriorate, and cause more damage than they’re worth. If the indoor air quality is bad, and you're constantly in need of repairs, the age of your system may to blame.
