Signs Your Heating Unit Needs a Tune Up

 

Overland Park HeatingIt might be time to get your heating unit checked out if you notice it is not working as well as it should. Sometimes a unit is old and it needs to be replaced. However, more often than not, a unit just needs a tune up from a professional. Call your local HVAC team to take a look at your heating unit if you suspect a problem. If you need more clues, then consider the following factors in a faulty heating unit.

An Erroneously High Monthly Statement: The whole purpose of a heater is to make your home warm without costing you an arm and a leg. You should not be paying a large amount more each month. If you find that your bill is getting increasingly bigger as the winter months go by, then your heater is not working well. You will obviously be paying more in the winter, but it should not be astronomical compared to years before. Besides, a furnace that burns unnecessary energy is not only bad for your bank account but for the environment as well. 

What’s That Sound? If you keep hearing weird noised from your heating unit, then you might have a problem. Your heater should be fairly quiet save the slight purr it makes while running. Anything more annoying than that is a clear indication that something is not right. A professional will be able to pinpoint and fix the problem immediately. 

Walking into a Cold Spot: No, your home is not haunted. The cold spot you walked through was not a ghost roaming your halls. Instead, your home’s heating unit is not efficient to spread its heating magic over the whole house. If this is a new problem, then you need to get a professional in to look at the unit right away. The heat might be escaping to parts of the house that do not need to be heated. An HVAC team will be able to help you keep the main part of the house warm by fixing any leaks.
