3 Signs Your Heating Needs Help

As a homeowner, you may be wondering if there is a way to tell if your heating is going out or breaking down before it throws your family into a blizzard. Here are those signs:

#1. You Stopped Getting Heat

If your HVAC system stops delivering heat to your home, you may have a heating problem. While the lack of heat may not mean your heating system is broken, it can mean a few different things. Check your circuit breaker to make sure your heating unit breaker is switched to on. Make sure your heating system is actually powered. And if neither of these bring the heat back on, it’s time to call an HVAC contractor for an inspection.

#2. You Hear Loud Noises

Your heating system will start to make loud noises before it goes out. A clanging or clacking noise from your heater is a sign that it’s about to fail, if it hasn’t already failed. It’s imperative that you take these noises seriously. They could point to a gas heating system having a crack, which could expose you to a gas leak.

#3. You Get Higher Heating Bills

If your utility bills are climbing unexpectedly, you may need to check your HVAC system. In most cases, your heating system is to blame. Get your local HVAC contractor out to inspect your unit. Don’t wait until it’s too late.
