Signs to Schedule Heating Maintenance 

If you’re like most homeowners residing in Montgomery County, you probably don’t give your HVAC system a second thought until something goes wrong. However, scheduling regular preventative maintenance for your unit can help you spot any issues early before they become significant problems. If it’s been a while or you’ve never had a tune-up, there are several things you can keep an eye out for that signal it’s time to schedule a maintenance service. Below we highlight the signs your heating system will display when you need to schedule a repair or maintenance.

Cold Spots Throughout Your Home

An obvious indication of a malfunctioning heating system is cold spots. If you notice some rooms are comfortable while others feel chilly or drafty no matter how much you fumble with the thermostat, you could have a struggling furnace. At Cooper, our service technicians can visit your home and inspect your ductwork and heating unit to correct airflow problems and fix any issues.  

Weird Noises

While all heaters make some noises when they’re operating, if you notice loud banging, clanging, or screeching sounds emanating from your furnace, it’s best to call a professional. Loud noises signal there’s a problem, and you shouldn’t diagnose them yourself. 

Unusual Smells

After installation, strange smells are common but if they linger or begin out of nowhere once your furnace powers on, it could be your heating system signaling you to a problem. Stale, musty odors often indicate the presence of mold, which needs to be handled by a professional.

Short Cycling or Constantly Operating 

Does your furnace turn on and off continuously for short periods? This is called short cycling. Your heat exchanger could be malfunctioning, or if your system is operating constantly without turning off, you’ll need to schedule a repair. 

Pilot Light 

If you use a gas-powered furnace to heat your home, you need to be aware of your pilot light and its color. Your pilot light should be blue. If you discover a red, orange, or yellow flame, your furnace isn’t working correctly. It’s best to call in a professional who can diagnose your pilot light issues and ensure no harmful pollutants are emitted into the air.
