- Insufficient heating. One of the most common signs that you need immediate heating repair is insufficient heat. Because the entire purpose of a whole house heater, such as a gas furnace, heat pump or ductless mini split, is to keep you warm, this problem can be particularly frustrating, especially considering that you’re still paying good money for heat you’re not getting. There are plenty of causes for this problem, but the solution is always hiring a local technician to examine the problem and fix it.
- Uneven heating. If you find that your home has numerous hot and cold spots throughout the various rooms, then it’s important to seek professional assistance. If you have a ducted heater, such as a gas furnace or heat pump, then this could be an airflow problem, related to impeded or leaky ductwork. If your system is also zoned, then it could be an issue with one of the electronically controlled dampers therein. Whatever the problem is, it’s important to get it fixed immediately so that your heating system works properly at all times.
- High energy bills. One of the most common signs that your heater is acting up is a raise in your energy bills without a corresponding increase in the amount of heating that you require. Sure, you should expect your heating to fluctuate slightly, but if you notice a spike, then it’s important to take care of it straightaway. It could be a rather serious problem that requires immediate attention if you want to avoid premature replacement and other issues.
- Cold air. If you experience cool air coming out of the ducts instead of warm air, then it could be a number of different issues, including thermostat malfunction or a more serious problem with your heat pump or furnace.
