Here at Hodge Heating & Air Conditioning of Lake Norman Inc., we want to help you stay warm and comfortable this winter, and that means helping you keep your heating system in good working order. One of the best ways to take care of your heating system is to learn to spot potential problems so that you can correct them before they become serious. In this article, we’ll go over three signs that you need heating repair to help you spot trouble early.
- Weird Noises. All heating systems will make some noise as they run, but if your system starts making noises it doesn’t usually make, there’s a good chance that you need heating repair. These sounds can include buzzing, grinding, rattling, or something else out of the ordinary. If you hear weird sounds coming from your furnace, we at Hodge Heating & Air Conditioning of Lake Norman Inc. encourage you to give us a call to get a professional inspection.
- Not Enough Heat. Another sign you may need heating repair is if your system stops producing enough heat. If you find yourself turning the thermostat higher and higher only to keep shivering, you have a problem. In that situation, we recommend that you call our team as soon as possible to get started on a solution.
- Short Cycles. The last warning sign that we at Hodge Heating & Air Conditioning of Lake Norman Inc. will cover here is short cycling. This refers to a problem where your furnace turns off and on more often than it should, producing multiple short cycles throughout the day instead of a few longer ones. Your heating system uses a lot more energy to start than it does to keep running, so letting this problem persist could be significantly raising your energy bills. Fortunately, you can turn to our team to identify the root of the issue and provide effective heating repair.
