Signs Your Heater is in Need of Repairs
Certain issues with your heater, like leaks or cracks, as well as problems with the pilot light, can be dangerous if they are not addressed immediately. Some key signs that your heater needs repairs include:
- Frequent cycling: If your heater is frequently cycling on and off, it's likely that there's an airflow problem causing the unit to overheat. Check the air filter to make sure it's not too dirty to allow for proper air flow.
- Uneven heat: If you're not getting even heat throughout your living quarters, first check that all of your vents aren't being obstructed by any furniture. If that's not the issue, call in our Sterling heating repair technicians as you're most likely experiencing heat-loss in your ducts.
- Strange noises: All heaters make a little bit of noise, especially when you're turning on your unit. But if you're hearing loud noises like banging or screeching that you've never hear before, it's best to get a professional opinion.
- Strange smells: This is most common the first time you turn your heater on for the year – as the dust that's accumulated during the months you weren't using your heater burns away, it can smell a bit weird for a few hours. If the smell persists, or if you smell gas at any point, call us right away to take a look and make sure you don't have a gas leak.
- Excessively high energy bills during winter: This is most likely caused by one of two reasons. First, it's possible your experiencing heat-loss in your ducts and your heating unit is working overtime to keep the thermostat at the desired temperature. It's also possible that there's something wrong with your heating unit and it's taking more inputs to achieve the desired output.
- The pilot light is burning yellow: This is a sign that your heater has a carbon monoxide leak, and needs to be fixed immediately. The pilot light should always burn blue, and if you ever notice it burning yellow, turn off your heater immediately and call for emergency repairs.
