The cold temperatures are still lingering. Therefore, you need to keep your HVAC system in tip-top shape to ensure the comfort of your Mokena, Illinois, home. Staying on top of repairs can reduce your risk of letting a small problem become a big one, helping prevent costly breakdowns. To keep your heating system humming through the end of the season, watch for the following signs of trouble:
Clunking, squealing or banging noises coming from your heating system are often a sign that a part is broken, worn or beginning to fail. It’s important to address these issues immediately. That way, loose parts won’t damage other components and cause the system to break down.
High Utility Bills
Fluctuations in your energy bills during peak heating and cooling months are pretty normal. However, if you’re getting energy bills that seem higher than usual, your HVAC system might have worn or damaged parts. A professional can take a closer look and rectify the issue.
If you can’t seem to keep your home at a comfortable temperature, you might need a repair rather than a simple thermostat adjustment. When the components of your system aren’t working properly, it can limit the airflow. As a result, it can be difficult to heat your home adequately.
Short or Constant Cycling
If you notice that your system is running in short spurts and shutting off, or if it seems to be running non-stop, something in the system may not be functioning properly. This can affect the comfort of your home. It can also lead to higher monthly energy bills.
Yellow Pilot Light
If you have a gas furnace, the color of the pilot light should always burn blue. If you notice that it’s yellow or any other color, it could mean your furnace is producing carbon monoxide. Turn it off and call an HVAC service technician immediately.
