As winter comes to an end here in Central Massachusetts, we’ll likely still be using our home heating systems for at least a few more weeks. In those few weeks, you could be facing a breakdown of your furnace or boiler.
If you didn’t have your heating system serviced before the winter, it’s not too late! Professional maintenance on a yearly basis can help to avoid equipment breakdowns and higher repair costs.
Our trained and experienced service professionals can make sure that your furnace or boiler is in excellent working order. A well-maintained heating system runs at its best possible efficiency. With fuel costs the way they are right now, that can save you a lot of money!
However, your heating system may be alerting you that it needs immediate repair. Here are some indicators that your heating system may need expert servicing before the winter comes to an end.
If your home’s furnace or boiler shows any of these issues, contact Pioneer Oil and Propane right away so we can discover what’s wrong and fix it.
There are a number of causes for your heating system to stop operating or perform inefficiently, particularly if it hasn’t been serviced in a while.
It’s possible that the thermostat is broken, but the heating system is working fine. The good news is that a repair will not be costly! Thermostat malfunctions may also influence your central air conditioning, so you’ll want to get this taken care of as soon as possible.
Other potential heating system problems include:
Damaged ductwork. Another element to consider is damaged ductwork, which affects both your cooling and heating systems. Damaged ductwork impairs the performance of your HVAC system, increasing energy costs.
Clogged air filter. Set a reminder to check your furnace’s air filter once a month and change as needed. This helps to prevent dust and debris from entering the heating system while also protecting the internal components from wear and tear caused by it.
Stuck damper. Dampers regulate the flow of heated or cooled air through your ductwork. If a damper is stuck, air may not be able to reach all of the vents, resulting in an uneven heating and chilly spots.
Electrical malfunction. There may be problems with the wiring, which you should address as soon as possible for both your heating system and your safety. Not fixing this might make it worse and put you in risk.
