Problems That a Heating Service Can Help Fix, Wilton, Connecticut

A quality heating unit can dependably heat a home for up to 15 years or longer, but getting this equipment to stay at peak performance takes regular care. In addition to routine maintenance, homeowners must stay aware of how their heating unit is performing—and respond to problems promptly. Be sure to call a full service company for repairs if you notice any of the following warning signs.  

Signs You Should Call a Heating Service for  Repair

1. Odor

You should not have odors coming from your heating and hot water units.  If there are odors call Servco Oil & Propane.  If you smell propane, exit your home and call from outside the home.

2. Unusual Sounds

As heating units age, internal components can loosen or become weak, resulting in a variety of odd noises. If you hear rattling, squealing, or banging coming from your equipment, a mechanical issue likely needs attention from a professional.

3. Reduced or Uneven Heat

When your thermostat needs to be turned up higher than usual, a malfunction may prevent it from communicating properly with the heating unit.   If little or no air is coming out of the vents or the radiators are cold, call Servco Oil & Propane for service.

4. Frequent Cycling

Mechanical problems can prevent a unit from reaching set temperatures in a reasonable amount of time, causing it to work harder than it should. When this happens, the equipment can overheat, shut off, and start back up.  If you notice your system running more frequently than normal, have a professional evaluate it for potential complications.

5. Increasing Utility Costs

If you’re spending more than usual on fuel during the winter, it may be caused by a unit running more than it should. A professional inspection can help identify potential reasons why your equipment is inefficient—and how to restore cost-effective performance.
