Don’t Ignore These Signs
If your heating system seems like it’s trying to tell you something, it probably is. Signs like banging or knocking, elevated heating bills, unusual odors and irregular heating patterns don’t just happen for nothing. When one or more of these things starts to happen with your heating system, the smart thing to do is call for some professional attention. Chances are, there is at least one component that requires repair and the sooner you take action, the sooner the heater will be running at full capacity once again.
Annual Heater Maintenance Provides Many Benefits
If you take the time to schedule routine heating maintenance services, you may never notice any of the signs mentioned above. If you have a technician come in during the fall, you can have any minor issues remedied before the heavy usage begins in the winter. Your system will run more efficiently, which will save money on your bills, and you can count on smooth, consistent heat when the temperatures plummet.

How a Malfunctioning Heater Can Affect Your Home
If your heater malfunctions, maybe because you haven’t gotten it serviced this year, you might crank up your thermostat before discovering that it’s not working correctly. Perhaps it's blowing irregularly, making weird noises or shutting on and off for no apparent reason. You might be tempted to shrug it off, but doing so could put your home at risk.
A malfunctioning heater can be a major fire hazard. Heaters are responsible for plenty of household fires, and if you don’t contact a furnace repair expert, a malfunctioning heater could be a devastating fire waiting to happen.
Carbon monoxide poisoning
This is not a danger with electrical heaters, but certainly a huge risk with everything else from gas and petroleum to wood and charcoal powered heaters. Carbon monoxide is tasteless and odorless, which makes it even more dangerous. Faulty heaters used in enclosed places pose a high risk as do paraffin stoves and coal fire drums.
A heating system filled with dirt and debris can be blowing all kinds of pollutants and allergens into your home, compromising your indoor air quality and exposing you and your family to dangerous allergens and chemical substances.
To keep your home safe, work towards maintaining a safe heating system. We encourage regular maintenance of old heaters as well as updating home heating systems. If you’re not yet ready to replace your old heater, be sure to have it serviced and maintained at least twice a year to keep your unit fully functional, minimize risks, and keep your home safer.
Do You Need Your Motor Repaired or Replaced?
If you notice that there is little to no airflow coming from your vents, even when you have your heater cranked up, it could be a sure sign that there is an issue with your blower motor. The blower motor is the part of your furnace that is in charge of blowing warm air through the ducts out to your home. While the motor can, in some cases, be repaired, a broken blower motor will likely need to be replaced. The experts at Time Plumbing, Heating & Electric Inc. can help you get your motor problem resolved in no time!
The Real Cost of DIY Heater Repair
Getting in there and trying to make repairs to your heating system on your own may seem like a great idea, but it will only cost you in the long run. Most of the time, DIY heating repairs aren’t completed to professional standards, and not only will the original problem surface quickly, but there may be additional problems that pop up.
Homeowners don’t have the same experience and troubleshooting skills that a professional has, and mistakes are common. Just leave the repairs and maintenance to the pros, so you won’t have to worry about your family shivering on a cold winter night.
