Beware of Late Season Heating System Breakdowns

Beware of late season heating system breakdowns

Believe it or not, spring 2020 is a little more than one month away, with a short February eventually yielding to the first month of spring.

But as we know all too well here in Pennsylvania, heating season ain’t over until it’s over.

With average nighttime temperatures in our PA service area dipping into the mid-40s well into May, your heating system will still be on the job for at least three months, so if you have not taken care of routine heating maintenance yet this season, it’s a good idea to do it now.

Not sure if you need heating system service?

Here are some things that may indicate that your heating equipment needs professional heating service or repair:

  • It’s making unusual noises (grinding, banging, etc.)
  • Your vents are not blowing hot air, or your baseboards are not heating up
  • Your utility bills are rising compared to last year, despite comparable use
  • If you have a gas furnace with a pilot light, the pilot light is burning yellow
  • Your furnace won’t turn or stay on
  • Your furnace won’t shut off

Stay ahead of heating repairs and breakdowns

The key to preventing potentially costly heating equipment repairs and breakdowns is to be proactive about maintenance, whether or not your system is showing signs like the ones we described above. An annual heating tune-up will help identify and address any issues that could get worse down the road.

If your equipment already needs a repair, it’s still better to catch the problem sooner than later – the more you wait, the greater your chance for a no-heat emergency or a safety problem with your heating equipment.
