Common Heating System Repairs
All kinds of things can go wrong with your home heating system.
And while that’s not exactly the good news, this is: simply by having your system professionally serviced every year, most repair problems can be prevented or minimized. That means potentially big savings plus added peace of mind all winter long.
But let’s say your faithful as can be with annual preventive maintenance. Given that the average heating system lifespan is 12 – 15 years, yours won’t be repair-free forever. Here are a few of the more common signs that something is brewing and needs your attention:
- Hot and cold spots. This, like most heating system problems, is the result of ongoing neglect. Over time, dirt and other pollutants gather and mount inside your ducts and elsewhere, thus causing air distribution problems. That in turn makes some areas of your house warmer than others.
- Sky-high utility bills. Inefficient heating systems work harder and consume more energy to keep you warm and comfortable.
- Banging, rattling, and other noises. Your heating system was built to run quietly. But that can change over time as wear and tear starts to add up. If, for example, you hear a whistling sound, it probably means there’s a gap in your duct work. If you have a boiler/baseboard heating system and hear loud clanging or rattling noises, it might be the result of warping in the pipes.
- Frequent cycling. If your heating system turns on and off more frequently, the usual causes are improper airflow, faulty thermostat, or a clogged filter.
