Common Signs Your Heating System Needs Repair

Higher Energy Costs

Sudden hikes in your electricity bill may be attributed to a broken thermostat, dirty filter, duct leak or other faulty mechanism. These problems will force your system to work harder to heat your property to its desired temperature. Even properly maintained HVAC systems lose heating capacities around 25% or more after 15 to 20 years of use.

Cold Spots in Your Home

A clear indication of a failing heating system is uneven distribution of heat in your home or business. If you notice cool or cold spots in areas that should be heated, or if you feel the need to constantly adjust your heaters settings and temperatures, your system needs repair services.

Weak Airflow

Poor airflow is often caused by lack of proper maintenance or a dirty air filter. An experienced HVAC expert can diagnose the problem and properly remove debris or blockages from your HVAC system. Poor maintenance and dirty air filters are the leading cause of poor indoor air quality. Your HVAC system will disperse dust and debris into your home or business, causing allergies and other health complications.

Contact Bill Howe to learn more about improving your indoor air quality.

Abnormal Noises

If you are experiencing irregular, loud banging, scraping, rattle, clanks, or screeches during system operation, you may need professional heater repair services. An experienced technician will determine if the motor bearing, thermostat or compressor needs to be replaced, working parts need to be tightened, or if debris or other obstructions have been lodged in your system and need to be removed.

Persistent Odors or Smells

Heating systems typically emit the light faint smell of gas. However, a consistent and strong gaseous odor should be cause for concern as your system may have a gas leak.

Additionally, if you smell smoldering plastic or rubber, a part may be burning slowly and will inevitably fail. A stale musty smell is likely attributed to biological growth like mold or bacteria. If your system is emitting inexplicable odors, it is best to contact a professional for heater repair.

These common signs are indications your heating system is not operating properly or safely and may need to be repaired by a professional. When you need reliable repairs, call the HVAC experts at Bill Howe Heating and Air.

How to Prevent Furnace Breakdowns

Has it been more than one year since your last furnace tune up? Annual furnace tune ups are recommended for the safety and efficiency of your HVAC system. Furnaces use fuel to provide heat to your home or business. Without regular maintenance, this can lead to harmful carbon monoxide levels or dangerous gas leaks.

During a furnace tune up, system controls and levels are checked, ensuring your system is working properly and optimally, reducing the likelihood of breakdowns and unexpected repairs.

Bill Howe Heating and Air offers a 15-point safety inspection and furnace tune up to help keep your system properly maintained and at peak performance.

Over the last 20 years I managed the construction of several large server rooms and professional office spaces. I worked with some of the best commercial contractors in the world. I am very picky about HVAC work. I was very impressed with my recent residential installation of the heating and air conditioning pump and furnace system by Bill Howe’s team. The lead did work that was on par with the best commercial installations I’ve managed. Bravo!

Great work by a professional team of HVAC pros. Started last week with estimator/sales rep coming to our home and was genuinely honest and professional. He thoroughly explained the entire process. They were able to fit us in much earlier than expected as they had a cancellation opening today. Technician arrived on time and did a fantastic job. Again thoroughly explained what was to be done and got it done with great professionalism and expertise. Cleaned up when finished and explained the operation of our new unit... I highly recommend them for a heating and air conditioning replacement! Great job!

Wow, I am so happy with the service I received today!!! I received a late-night text from my tenants that their AC had stopped working in the 100-degree heat. I called Bill Howe and was able to get a technician out the next morning. The technician called before he arrived and arrived first thing in the morning. Quickly assessed and fixed the AC right on the spot without breaking the bank!!! My tenants were overjoyed, and I was happy, relieved, and grateful for the quick and excellent service.

Thank you Bill Howe!!!
