Milford, NH Homeowner Spot the Signs a Heating System Needs Service

There are some common signs to watch for that are clear indicators your heating system needs service, including hot or cold areas throughout the home, high energy consumption, unusual sounds and the age of the unit.

A homeowner in Milford noticed that her heating system was behaving in an unusual way. With winter fast approaching, he wanted to have the unit serviced before the frigid cold set in.

Red Flag Your Heating System Needs Service

One sure giveaway that your heating system is not operating properly is an uneven distribution of heat throughout the home, resulting in colder and warmer rooms throughout. This could mean that the system’s air filters are dirty or that the vents are blocked. A technician can quickly troubleshoot and correct the problem.

If you are suddenly seeing an increase, beyond that caused normally by the declining temperatures, in your energy bills your unit may not be operating efficiently. Causes of this inefficiency can range from a thermostat problem to other problems with the heating system itself.

Sounds Coming from the Furnace

An unusual sound suddenly coming from the furnace can also indicate that your heating system needs service. Common sounds indicative of a problem include dripping, gurgling, tapping or banging. If you hear a harsh, metallic sound coming from the furnace, you should immediately shut the system off and contact a technician for service.

A typical heating system has a lifespan of about fifteen years. Beyond that you will notice that the unit’s efficiency will worsen, as it begins to wear down.

In the case of the homeowner in Milford, she was hearing a banging coming from the furnace. A Joyce Cooling & Heating technician was able to quickly identify and correct the problem. She is now comfortably enjoying the quiet heating of her home.

Testimonials & Reviews

We had central air conditioning installed last year by Joyce and were very satisfied with the job. Today, John N. serviced the unit and all of the components and he was incredibly thorough and professional. He explained exactly what was serviced and what to avoid (greenery around the outdoor unit). I highly recommend Joyce Cooling & Heating!

I also really appreciate how flexible they were with our 3 dogs, they did a great job ensuring materials /parts during install kept tidy to ensure the dogs didn't get into anything. Thanks for the great work!
