Signs Your Heating System Needs Repair

During the winter months, the last thing you want is a heater that just doesn’t seem to be working properly. While the temperatures here in Texas don’t typically drop to below zero in the winter, it still gets cold enough where we need to use our heaters. In this blog, we’re sharing a few signs to look out for that could be telling you your heater might be in need of repair.

Odd Noises

All heating systems make noise when they turn on or are running, but this noise is usually a low humming sound which is absolutely normal. If you hear an odd noise, such as loud screeching or banging, this could mean that there’s an internal issue with your heating system. Perhaps there’s a loose part in your system that needs to be reattached, but either way, you should contact Hedrick's Service Now to come inspect your heating system.

Uneven Heating Throughout the House

If certain rooms of your home feel colder than others when you know your heating system is running, this is a clear sign that something is wrong with your heater. This might be a quick fix if you seal some cracks in your doors and windows, but if the problem continues, it’s time to call our team at (214) 509-6029 for professional help.

Burning Smell

Burning odors are never a good sign. If you smell a burning odor when you turn your heater on, this is a clear indication of a broken part inside your heating system. It’s possible that there could be a piece of plastic or rubber inside your system that is burning when you turn your heat on, but only the pros can help figure this out. If you’re noticing unusual smells when your heater is running, don’t hesitate to contact Hedrick's Service Now.
