Keep Your Home Warm with Heating Repairs
Posted on: November 25, 2015
When the cold fronts start rolling into Belleair, it’s time to make sure that any heating repair services are taken care of. You don’t want to be left dealing with the surprisingly low evening temperatures, so contact Midway Services to keep you nice and toasty all winter long.
Signs You Need Heating Repairs
Besides the distinct chill in the room, there are many signs you may notice that indicate the need for heating repair. Call an expert right away if you notice:
- Burning smells in your vents
- Unusual noises
- Incorrect temperature readouts
- Gas appliances that don’t ignite
- A pilot light that’s out
Although these signs don’t necessarily indicate an emergency, it’s important that you address them before they progress. By examining your appliances, a technician may also be able to tell you where you could be saving energy and lowering your monthly utility bills.
Repair or Replace?
When deciding whether you need to replace the unit or if you need us to fix it, first consider how old it is. In our experience, if a unit is older than ten years, it more than likely needs to be replaced. If you’re a new homeowner or have forgotten when you purchased it, locate the serial number, which contains the date the unit was manufactured.
Another sign that replacement is necessary is if sediment has accumulated on the bottom of the tank. This hardened layer will result in a less efficient heater along with clanging and rattling noises. If you notice that water looks rusty, it could indicate that the unit is rusting from the inside out. This will eventually result in a leak, which will require water heater repair or replacement. It isn’t always easy to locate the cause, so let members of our staff identify whether we can fix it or if you need to install a new one.
