What To Do If Your Heat Stops Working In Your Home
If you’ve ever experienced a freezing, windy winter in the Indianapolis, Decatur or Fort Wayne, Indiana areas, you know that’s not the time to experience the heat stop working in your house. For safety and comfort, it’s important to know your furnace is running efficiently and at its best. Sometimes a furnace repair or even replacement may be in store for you next, but before we jump to conclusions, we’ll talk about what else you can do if you’re experiencing no heat inside your home.
Aside from having regularly scheduled furnace maintenance to ensure your furnace is running well and any challenges are handled, there are significant warning signs to help you know if you need a furnace repair or replacement.
You’re Experiencing Frequent Repair Issues
If you’re frequently calling for furnace repairs that seem to be costing more and more money, a Comfort Specialist from Masters can assess your heating system and get you on the way to enjoying a higher level of comfort without breaking your budget on energy expenses.
The Age of Your System
If your furnace or boiler is older than 15 years, or if the age of your heat pump is greater than 10 years, it’s time to have a professional HVAC technician evaluate your system to ensure it’s operating efficiently. Replacing your outdated heating system with an Energy Star™ unit installed by a qualified company like Masters Heating & Cooling can save up to 20% on energy costs.
Humidity Issue & Hot or Cold Spots
Humidity and uneven heating can affect the total comfort you have inside. Hot or cold spots in your home indicate an air distribution problem. A professional assessment is needed to discern if the problem warrants a furnace or ductwork repair or something more.
Too low or too high humidity inside is a primary cause of poor indoor air quality, which affects overall health in both the short- and long-term. Masters Heating & Cooling has accessories available that can be installed with your system to keep your indoor air purer and healthier for all.
The Furnace or Heat Pump Sounds Weird
A low hum or something similar is expected during the normal operation of your heating system. If you hear unusual sounds like banging, screeching or grinding, call Masters today for a system inspection to discern the cause. Our NATE trained technicians will find the problem and help you decide if a furnace repair or furnace replacement is best.
These warning signs shouldn’t be brushed off or ignored. For the overall safety and health of your loved ones, be proactive and promptly handle any usual issues with your heating system. By doing so, you ensure your home’s heating equipment will always be ready to deliver the level of comfort you want and at the highest efficiency.
