Signs Your Heater Needs Repairs
Sometimes heaters seem to break down completely unexpectedly, but often heating systems will give homeowners plenty of fair warning before they fail. The good news is, there are common signs you can watch out for when it comes to hints that your heater may have a problem:
- Strange Noises: Heaters aren’t silent appliances, but if you notice odd sounds or new noises, it may be a sign that there’s a problem.
- No Heat: If you keep cranking your thermostat higher but you’re still breaking out the blankets, it could be a sign that your heater isn’t working the way it should.
- Heater Cycles On and Off: If your heater seems to cycle on and off constantly, it may be because there’s an issue that requires professional diagnosis.
- Strange Smells: Never ignore the scent of gas, but if you notice other odd smells coming from your furnace or vents you should contact a professional as soon as possible.
It’s important to understand these common signs of heater problems if you want to keep your home comfortable and sage. When you work with our heater repair technicians, we take the time to diagnose your heater issues and offer upfront pricing so there are no surprises.

How a Broken Heater Affects Your Home
Obviously, when your heater isn’t working, the main problem that creates is a lack of, well, heat in your residence, making your home uncomfortably cold. But a broken heater can also negatively affect your home in the following ways:
- Increased risk of fire
- Reduced indoor air quality
- Increased chance of family illness
- Increased utility costs
So while a loss of heat can leave you chilly, it’s not only personal discomfort you should be concerned with.
