Recognizing the Need for Heater Repair in Washington, DC

Of course, before you can call us, you need to know there’s a problem to begin with. Many heating system problems are quite evident, but that’s not always the case. In fact, you can have a problem with your heating system for quite some time and be completely unaware of it.

Unfortunately, even if you don’t realize that a problem exists, it could still be costing you money or leading to less comfortable conditions in your home than there would be with a fully functioning system. You’ll also probably end up with your system requiring emergency repairs. If you want to avoid that type of situation, though, you’ll need to know how to spot a heating system problem early.

What to Watch For

A good indication that you may have something wrong with your heating system is the system is making unusual and/or loud noises, or the system is running intermittently for no particular reason. Systems should run for a few minutes without turning off and cycle from there. If the system is turning on and off every few seconds (short cycling), it is not running correctly. A system that isn’t working quite right might not be providing heat equally to all areas of your home. In order to check for this, you may want to get some thermometers to place in different parts of your house so that you’ll know for sure if the temperature is consistent throughout.

Also, if your house is comfortable but the heating system seems to be running all of the time, there is probably something wrong. A heating system that’s working properly should stay on until your home reaches the temperature set on the thermostat and then shut off until the indoor temperature dips below that. If your system can’t seem to get the indoor temperature up to that point, it’s not working the way that it should.

Even if you don’t notice any of these physical signs, you should pay close attention to your energy bill over time. Any sudden increases that can’t be accounted for by a rise in the rates that you’re paying should tip you off that your heating system may be using more energy than it should. A system that needs extra energy to get the same amount of work done isn’t running efficiently and there’s usually an underlying problem that requires professional repairs to remedy.
