Does Your Heating System Require Repairs?

If a furnace, heat pump, or boiler doesn’t turn on or doesn’t produce warm air, it’s easy to recognize the need for heating repairs. Unfortunately, not all heating system issues produce such obvious signs and can exist right under your nose for a very long time as they develop into more serious problems down the road.

As a homeowner, it’s important to spot the sometimes subtle changes in your heating system’s performance so you know when there is something amiss with your furnace, boiler, or heat pump. It is best to contact Buckeye Heating & Cooling for heating repairs at the first sign of troubles. Putting off heating repairs can lead to more system damage and repairs that require extensive work as well as a larger price tag.

When you are aware of the signs of potential heating system flaws, you know exactly when to call our team for professional heating repair services. Solving these system issues early on can spare your furnace, heat pump, or boiler from serious damage and breakdowns that leave your household without heat for a period of time. Here are some of the signs and symptoms you should be watching for:

Is the heating system noisy?

Minor operating noise, like a steady hum, is typical as heating systems operate. When the equipment starts to produce louder operating noise or new and sudden sounds, these are signs of heating system trouble that require repairs. Furnaces, boilers, and heat pumps can produce all types of jarring noises that indicate system problems, such as banging, buzzing, rattling, screeching, popping, and more.

Do heating cycles start and stop after just a few minutes?

An average heating cycle will last about 10 to 15 minutes, perhaps longer if the weather outdoors is extremely cold. What shouldn’t happen is a decrease in the length of heating cycles, down to only a few minutes at a time. When heating cycles start and turn off again rather quickly, this is a damaging issue known as short cycling. Short cycling can have many different causes, and this issue needs to be resolved right away to avoid causing damage to your heating unit.

Are you turning temperatures higher than normal to heat your home?

Everyone has their preferences regarding comfortable indoor temperatures for heating. If you find you have to turn your thermostat up a few extra degrees just to achieve comfortable conditions inside the home, something is wrong with your heating unit. Heating repairs correct causes of lack of heating and uneven heating to keep everyone inside the home warm and comfortable.

Are your heating bills higher than usual?

Heating costs account for the majority of the average home’s energy expenses. When these bills become higher than usual, it’s highly likely that an issue with your heating equipment is causing the increase. Furnaces, boilers, and heat pumps draw more energy when issues stand in the way of doing their job. Stress to system components force the heating unit to work harder to heat your home, using up more energy than necessary in the process. Heating repairs eliminate these issues so your furnace, boiler, or heat pump performs at the proper efficiency level and your energy bills return to normal.

Troubleshoot Before You Call for Heating Repairs

Sometimes, what seems like an issue with your heating unit is actually due to a simple problem you can fix yourself. Quick and easy troubleshooting steps can restore heat in your home in just a few minutes, so you don’t have to wait for a technician to come out or pay for a repair service call.

Before you call Buckeye Heating & Cooling for furnace repairs or heating system repairs, check these areas first to see if your issue can be resolved with some simple troubleshooting.

  • Check thermostat settings: It’s easy for thermostat settings to be disrupted in a household with many people – one person may change the settings without notifying others. If your heating system isn’t turning on when you expect or isn’t heating the home to the temperature you like, check the thermostat settings first. Make sure HEAT mode is selected and that the temperature is set a few degrees higher than the current temperature of the space.
  • Check the air filter: A dirty filter can prevent a furnace or heat pump from sending enough warm air into rooms, as it restricts airflow. Dirty filters can also cause heating systems to shut down due to overheating, which stops the system from coming on until equipment has cooled. Remove the filter from its compartment and assess its condition. If the filter’s surface is completely full of grey contaminant matter, you need to replace it with a new filter of the same size and dimensions. Give the furnace or heat pump time to cool and try to start it again.
  • Check the pilot light: Older furnaces may still use a pilot light ignition system, which is a constantly burning flame that lights the furnace when a heating cycle starts. Remove the access panel to see the ignition assembly. If the pilot light is out, follow the manufacturer’s instructions for relighting. If the flame continues to extinguish, look for nearby draft sources and fix them. If the flame goes out again and there are no drafts, if the flame burns yellow and wavers, or you cannot relight the pilot, it’s time to call for heating repairs.
  • Check for error codes: Newer heating units will typically flash an error code that tells you what problem exists within the system. There is usually a key for the codes on the access panel. Observe the number of flashes given off by the indicator light and check the key to see if the code is something you are able to resolve. If you cannot correct the system issue, be sure to tell your technician which error code is presenting when you call for heating repairs.
