While some issues with your heating system are obvious, others are far subtler. Knowing what to look for can help you identify developing problems as early as possible. Regular maintenance is your first line of defense against issues with your Spring Hill, Florida, heating system. However, you should keep an eye out for these trouble signs as well.
A Growing Heating Bill
It’s easy to overlook a gradual increase in your heating bill. This may happen slowly over a long period of time, so you don’t realize at first that your heating expenses are on the rise. However, comparing your current heating bills to those from the past may reveal a developing problem. Your bills will naturally increase as the weather gets colder, but if your heating bills are notably higher this winter than they were last year in similar conditions, you may want to have your system inspected.
If you’re not paying close attention to the sounds your furnace makes during regular operation, it’s easy to assume a whirring or rattling sound is normal. However, your furnace should generally operate quietly. If there’s a popping or banging, there’s an issue with the system. Regular maintenance visits will help you catch these issues before the whole system shuts down.
Failure to Reach Your Programed Temperature
If you don’t have another thermometer in your house, you may not know if you’re really enjoying the temperatures that you’re programming into your system. However, if the home seems much colder than the temps your programmable thermostat is set to deliver, it’s worth investigating further. Use another thermometer to see if your home is as warm as you’ve set it to be.
