Bellefonte winters are cold. Here’s how to minimize the need for emergency heating repair:
Schedule Preventive Maintenance
Annual HVAC maintenance can prevent up to 95 percent of heating repair calls. When you get heater maintenance in fall, you’re not likely to need heater repair in winter.
Get Help Immediately
Small heating issues can quickly escalate. A banging noise can mean a loose part. When addressed promptly, a loose part is usually a quick fix. If ignored, that loose part can tear up your equipment in ways that are costly to fix.
Turn the System Off
Never operate a broken heater, even if outdoor temperatures are unusually cold. Not only can it make the problem worse, but it can also create a safety hazard. When you call for emergency heating repair services, you can expect a speedy response to your call. You won’t have long to wait before your service technician arrives.
Call for Troubleshooting Assistance
Expert heating services contractors are happy to help you troubleshoot your system. They can tell you if the situation is an emergency and suggest the best course of action. Some problems can even be solved over the phone at no cost to you.
Common Heating Emergencies
- Your heater is humming, buzzing, flickering or tripping the circuit breaker. Call your HVAC contractor for immediate assistance. Electrical problems can cause a fire.
- You smell gas, rotten eggs or other foul odors coming from your vents.
- Your heater is blowing cold air, or it won’t turn on at all.
- The pilot light on your furnace is yellow. A yellow light can indicate a carbon monoxide leak.
