How To Avoid Late-Season Heating System Breakdowns

heating system help massachusettsWe’re optimists here at Tom Fricker Complete Heating & Cooling – which means that while we are well aware that we have gotten some of the coldest weather of winter 2020/21 this month, we also know that we’re less than a month away from the start of spring – and less than six weeks away from the start of baseball season (hopefully).

But just because we’re optimists doesn’t mean we’re not prepared for what might happen in late winter. You should be, too.

That why it’s important to keep a close eye (and ear, and nose) on your heating equipment for signs that it needs professional heating service and repair as we enter the homestretch of winter.

When Does Your Furnace Need Repair?

Some common signs that your equipment needs attention include:

  • Unusual noises (grinding, banging, etc.)
  • Unusual burning smells
  • Cool air coming from vents or cool spots on baseboards and radiators
  • Unusually high fuel bills
  • A yellow pilot light on your gas furnace
  • A furnace that won’t turn or stay on
  • A furnace that won’t shut off

Tackle Small Issues Before They Become Big

The key to preventing potentially costly heating equipment repairs and breakdowns is to be proactive: if your equipment already needs a repair, address the problem sooner than later – the more you wait, the greater your chance for a significant repair or a safety problem with your heating equipment. Let the problem go long enough and you could need a heating system replacement that you could have avoided.
