How To Know If Your Central Heating And Cooling System Or Your Boiler Need Repair
There are several ways to tell if there are problems with your furnace, air conditioner or boiler. The most common indication is that your heating and cooling costs are going up. If you notice that utility bills are increasing for no apparent reason, it may well be that your boiler or central heating and cooling systems are to blame. Although these systems may still work, they’re not working as well as they used to. If a heating or cooling system or a boiler has issues, the unit will have to work extra hard to do its job. The additional strain on the system often requires additional energy usage, which in turn raises utility bills.
Signs That You Need Furnace, Boiler Or Air Conditioner Repair
If you notice any of the following symptoms, it’s a good idea to call for HVAC repair as soon as possible. That way, the problem won’t get any worse.
* Your central heating or cooling system isn’t keeping you as comfortable as it used to
* Boiler, air conditioner or furnace are making strange noises
* You’re not getting as much hot water as usual.
* There is ice on your air conditioner or heat pump
* Furnace flame is yellow instead of blue
* Indoor heating or cooling is uneven; some rooms too hot and other rooms too cool
* Indoor air temperature doesn’t match thermostat setting
How Can I Avoid Air Conditioner, Heater And Boiler Repairs?
The best way to keep your HVAC systems in good condition is to schedule regular maintenance. Air conditioners should be serviced every spring, just prior to the warm weather. Furnaces should be serviced every fall, just before the cold weather starts. Boilers should be serviced once every year as well. Besides extending the lifespan of your equipment, annual maintenance can reduce utility bills and help to prevent unexpected repair calls.
When Should I Replace My Air Conditioner, Furnace Or Boiler?
If your air conditioner or heat pump is over ten years old, it’s probably time to shop for a system replacement, especially if your existing unit has not received regular maintenance. Furnaces and boilers usually last for about 15 years, but can last much longer with annual furnace or boiler service. If your system needs frequent repairs, it may be more economical to replace it than to repair it. The good news is that you can replace an older furnace, air conditioner or heat pump with a new high-efficiency system that will save you money on energy bills every month.
