Common Heating Emergencies
When a heating system isn’t providing the heat necessary to keep people warm indoors, or if the heater won’t turn on at all, it’s a serious problem that warrants calling us, no matter the time of day or night. There are also a other emergencies to watch for that may not seem as obvious but which demand the attention of professionals:
- Signs of a cracked heat exchanger in a gas furnace: Gas furnaces are the most common heating systems in the area. If properly maintained, a gas furnace won’t offer safety worries. However, a crack in the heat exchanger for a gas furnace is a danger that can send harmful gases into the home. If you hear a rattling sound from the heat exchanger in the furnace, clicking sounds after the blower fan turns off, or the CO detectors in your house go off, you’ve got an emergency heating situation.
- Repeated tripped breakers: This applies to both electric and gas furnaces. When you turn on the furnace, and it soon shuts down because a circuit breaker trips, you may have a major fault in the system that needs fast attention. Please don’t keep resetting the breaker if it trips over and over—this is warning you that there is a major malfunction that could cause combustion hazards or electrical fires.
- Short-cycling: This refers to when a heater turns on for a short time, then shuts down, then turns back on a short time later, repeat. This places strain on the heater and could push it to a full breakdown. If you notice this occurring with your heating system, get ahead of the problem with fast repairs. There are many possible sources for short-cycling, and it takes professionals to determine the specific issue so it can be fixed and the heater rescued.
- Loud noises: Your heater shouldn’t make a racket when it runs. If it does, shut it off and call for service.
