Noises Your Boiler Should NOT Be Making

Monday, October 7th, 2019

One lesson you learn very early on in the HVAC industry is that every heating or cooling system has its own noises it makes. This exists on a spectrum, from normal noises of the heating or cooling process, to the noises that spell disaster to every homeowner who hears them.

There’s a misconception that boilers don’t make as much noise as other heating systems like furnaces or heat pumps, but that’s just not true. Sure they might run quieter since they’re not a forced-air system, but they still make noises when they’re having issues and you should still be on the lookout for those issues. Whether it’s banging, shrieking, or grinding, your boiler could be warning you that you need some work on your HVAC in Avon, OH. These problems can be costing you money on your heating bill that could only get worse the longer you ignore them!

Monday, January 28th, 2019

heat-pump-repairIs your heat pump failing to operate the way you expect? Well, don’t reach for the phone just yet. First, check to see if any of these factors are responsible.

Defrost Cycle

If your heat pump is blowing cold air in the middle of winter—and you’ve made sure it’s not accidentally in cooling mode—go ahead and inspect the outdoor unit. If you find that it’s covered in ice, don’t be alarmed. Your heat pump is most likely using a defrost cycle to get rid of the ice. During that time, it may blow cold air.

Leave Furnace Repair Services to the Professionals

Monday, February 26th, 2018

Low Air Flow Indicates a Need for Furnace Repair

Monday, February 12th, 2018

low-air-flow-heatingMost homes in the area rely on forced-air furnaces to stay warm in the winter. These furnaces heat the air via burners or electric coils, then blow the heated air through a series of ducts into the various corners of the home. It’s effective and inexpensive, which is why it’s such a common form of heating. But like any system, it can run into trouble from time to time. You need to be able to notice when that happens with your furnace, and call in a repair service when it does.

Homeowners should never attempt to formally diagnose a problem with their furnaces: that requires proper licensing and training. You can, however, note when something isn’t right with your furnace and call in a repair service. Generally speaking, anything that doesn’t match your system’s normal behavior is cause for concern.

More specifically, a lack of air flow from your system usually indicates a significant problem. The sooner you spot it, the better.
