Signs Your Heating System Needs Repair
If your heater suddenly stops working there’s no doubt it’s time to call someone for help. These sudden and unexpected breakdowns are extremely frustrating and disruptive to you and your family. No one wants to come home to a freezing cold home at the end of the day! Sometimes these occurrences happen out of the blue, but there are usually signs that your heater needs some attention. If you notice any of these signs it’s best to have a qualified technician take a look and make any needed repairs before your heater breaks down completely.
Your home isn’t as warm as it should be. Is your heater not warming you home as well as it used to? Most likely something is starting to go wrong in your system. Do you notice some areas or rooms are cooler than others, resulting in uneven heating? Left unfixed, even small issues can stress your system and lead to large problems.
You notice your heater running more often. When a heater starts cycling on and off more frequently it’s a strong indication of a problem in your system. It’s best to call a professional to take a look before this becomes a more critical issue.
Your unit is making strange sounds. Some sounds coming from your heating system are normal, but if they change or become louder it deserves attention. A damaged belt or loose part may be the cause, but other more serious mechanical problems could be the cause. A qualified technician can diagnose what’s wrong and get it fixed.
Your energy bills have gotten unusually high. When a heating system is in need of repairs it is under stress and has to work harder to keep your home warm. This added power consumption causes an increase in your energy costs, so unless you are running your heater more often on purpose, it’s best to have a pro take a look.
There are bad odors coming from your air vents. The most common smell is a burning odor, which could indicate burning rubber or plastic parts within the heating system. It’s best to call and HVAC expert to diagnose and fix the issue before more damage occurs.
The burner light on a gas furnace turns yellow. Burner lights should be blue, and when they turn yellow it could be caused by carbon monoxide. If you notice this, get everyone out of the home and call for help immediately. This poses a very dangerous and immediate threat to you and your family.
In most cases, addressing problems with your gas or electric heater when they first start can prevent the need for more major repairs down the road, saving you money and lots of frustration. If you suspect your system is starting to struggle, contact us today for help.

Common Questions About Heating Repair
The only way to truly know what your repairs will cost is to have a technician look at your system and determine what repairs are needed. You may be able to get a quick "ball park" estimate over the phone from some companies, but it's impossible for anyone to provide an accurate quote without knowing the exact nature of what needs to be done to fix your heater and fix it right. We understand that this is frustrating to homeowners, but we always strive to treat our customers honestly. If your heater needs repair, contact us and we'll be happy to take a look and let you know your options for getting it fixed.
A well maintained furnace generally lasts 15 - 20 years, but that lifespan can vary. When a heater receives regular professional maintenance and small repairs are handled right away, a furnace tends to last longer, sometimes beyond 20 years. A poorly maintained heating system however, generally wears out long before it could have lasted. Other factors like the quality of the unit's installation can also impact how long it lasts. The best way to ensure you get the most life out of your furnace is to change the filters regularly, use a programmable thermostat, be diligent about annual tune-ups and maintenance, and have any needed repairs done sooner than later. If you would like to have a heater inspected or find out options for replacement, contact us today.
The short answer is, it depends. If you have a furnace, you will eventually need repairs, but this doesn't always mean it's time to buy a new one. Even a very well maintained furnace will experience some problems during its lifetime, but at some point it makes more sense to replace it rather than have repairs made. Some things to consider is how well the furnace has been cared for, and if there was a previous owner you may not know for sure. Another is age. Once a furnace gets older it will need more frequent repairs and they can end up costing more than the cost for replacement. Some homeowners decide to update their furnace to take advantage of new technologies and get higher energy efficiency. Kennon Heating & Air Conditioning can have a trained HVAC professional inspect your system and make recommendations based on your furnace's age and health and then present you with options. We believe in equipping our customers with the knowledge they need to make informed decisions that they will be happy with for years to come.
There are lots of reasons your heater may not be working as well as it should, or used to. There are some very common things that you can easily look into yourself, like checking the thermostat to make sure it's on and set correctly, checking for dirty filters, and making sure that the heating unit is powered on. If these check out it's time to call an expert. HVAC technicians have the knowledge and tools to diagnose problems with your heater safely and quickly. Contact us today if you've noticed that your heater isn't heating your home like it should.
Some of the most commons reasons that your heater stops working are due to your thermostat and dirty filters and components. The thermostat may have accidentally gotten turned off (it happens!) or be faulty. Too much dust, dirt, debris and gunk in air filters and other parts of the heater can cause it to overheat and shut down. On a recent service call, one of our technicians fixed a fully shut down heating system by replacing a couple of missing screws! Some times the problems are larger and more complicated. You can check your thermostat and filters yourself, but if they look okay it's time to call a pro to diagnose the problem.
Choosing the right HVAC company to trust with your heating repairs can be confusing. If you're new to an area or want to change service providers it's hard to know where to start and what to look for. Some people just call the company that runs the most ads, because their name is familiar. But good branding and marketing doesn't necessarily mean those company are the best. Visit a company's website to get an idea of the types of services they offer, how long they've been around, and if you get a sense that you would feel confident hiring them. Always, yes always, read reviews! There's no better source, other than all your friends and family, to find out what's it's really like to deal with a company. Are their reviews good or not-so-good? Do people compliment them on things that are important to you like timeliness, professional and polite technicians, modern equipment, good communication? Reviews can reveal a lot about how a company conducts itself.
