Does Your Heater Need Some Expert Assistance?

A warm home is vital in the winter. Ideally, you should have a professional technician complete annual maintenance in the fall. This will spot trouble before it becomes an emergency. Preventive maintenance provides peace of mind for you to enjoy all winter long.

Sometimes the unexpected does happen. Do you know when it is time to call a professional for heater repair in Tulsa, OK? Below are the five most common signs it is time for some expert assistance to repair your heating system.

Lack of Warmth

You have cranked the thermostat but your toes are still frozen. Your thermostat might be broken. Some thermostats are wired to the electrical system in the house. Faulty or deteriorated wiring may prevent your thermostat from providing proper instructions to your heat system.

If you can’t see through your air filter then the air can’t make it through the filter. Dust clogging your air filter forces the system to work harder. Your heat exchanger will heat too quickly which will trigger the system to shut off too soon. When the system short-cycles like this it doesn’t run long enough to heat the entire space. The air filter should be cleaned or replaced every 1 to 3 months.

A broken blower fan creates weak airflow through your ductwork. The rooms farthest from your furnace will feel cold. The warm air does not have enough force to reach the distance it needs to travel.

Banging, Squealing, or Rattling

New and concerning noises are going to be a sign of trouble in your system.

When the ignition does not function properly the gas builds up in the combustion chamber. When it finally ignites it creates a small explosion with an obvious bang.

Worn-out bearings on the blower or the inducer motor will squeal. Misaligned parts in the blower will also squeal or squeak.

Rattling may be a simple loose panel or screw. However, a crack in the heat exchanger could rattle, bang or pop. This problem requires immediate attention.

Increased Heating Bills

Clogged filters, delayed ignition, or damaged parts all increase the energy your furnace requires to operate to reach your desired temperature. This will reflect as higher costs on your monthly energy bill. Large increases in your energy costs can be a sign your furnace needs repairs.

Foul Smells

Burning smells or rotten egg smells are a warning sign to call your service technician immediately. They indicate a gas leak. In their natural state, the gases in your furnace do not have a smell. Suppliers purposefully make the gas smell, so you can detect a leak. Leave the home for the safety of all residents. You can return when an emergency service provides you with the all-clear and then schedule repairs.

Carbon Monoxide Detector is Triggered

A carbon monoxide alarm should always be taken seriously. All residents of the home should immediately evacuate when one is triggered. An expert should be called in to investigate the source. A crack in your heat exchanger may be the cause.

It is important to take prompt action with an HVAC specialist if you suspect a problem with your heating system. Make the winning call to the team at Air Comfort Solutions to make an appointment.
