Heating systems provide warmth and comfort in your home. Unfortunately, they’re prone to breakdowns that lower their efficiency. Here are four signs that your heating system in Boonsboro, MD, may require repairs.
1. Inconsistent Heating
Your heating system may require repairs if you notice cold and hot spots in your home. Inconsistent heating shows that your heating system is straining to provide adequate heating.
A faulty heating system also results in high energy bills. Having a qualified service technician check your system and fix problems will help you have adequate heating for your home.
2. Strange Noises
Your heating system may produce strange noises, including banging, rattling and creaking. This could indicate problems with the system’s motor bearings, blower assembly or fan. You can hire a service technician to troubleshoot your system and fix any problems.
3. Short Cycling
Short cycling is when your system goes on and off at irregular intervals. It usually occurs when the heat exchanger overheats, causing the entire system to shut down. The system turns back on when the exchanger cools off.
Short cycling causes discomfort in your home and increases wear and tear on your system. A service technician can inspect your system to diagnose and fix the problem.
4. Low-Quality Indoor Air
Faulty heating systems can circulate dust, dirt, allergens and other air pollutants that may lower the quality of your indoor air. They may also affect the level of humidity in your indoor air, leading to health issues. You can hire a service technician to repair flaws in your system to restore your indoor air quality.
