Signs It’s Time to Call for a Professional
There are a few common signs that your heating system may need repair:
- No heat – when your heating system won’t turn on at all, there is clearly a problem. There are a number of things that can cause a break down, so it’s best to call a professional.
- Not enough heat – is your thermostat set to one temperature but your home isn’t that warm? Uneven heating can be an indication of several problems, ranging from issues with the piping system to a kinked fuel line, so let a trained expert figure it out.
- Water leaks – with a hydronic system, it is not uncommon to develop a problem with leaks. Leaks can occur at the heat distribution point (radiators, etc.) with the piping or with the boiler. Leaks can cause corrosion and/or a drop in pressure, both of which can be problematic for your system.
- Some radiators work, some don’t – are some of your radiators/baseboards producing heat while others aren’t? This can be indicative of an issue with the piping, a problem with a circulator pump or an issue with the radiator or baseboard.
It can be tempting to ignore the signs of problems, particularly if your heating system is still working. The thing to remember is that problems do not resolve on their own and they usually become worse.
