We’re well into winter, and finally feeling a little cool air. You know what that means; it’s time for a boiler check. There’s nothing worse than coming home after a long, chilly day only to have no heat.
At Smart Heating Systems, we recommend scheduling an Annual Boiler check at the start or just before Winter season. This will ensure your system is ready for the season ahead. If it’s been a while since you last had your boiler check and are starting your heating system anyway, here are the top 5 signs you need to know if you need a boiler check.
After a season of lying dormant, it can take some time to get used to your heating again. When you kick it on for the first time in a season, pay attention to how and where it heats your home. A sure-fire sign you need a boiler check is if your home isn’t heating as it should, or heat isn’t evenly distributed throughout your home.
It’s normal for your heaters to make some sounds; especially when you start it up after summer. Oftentimes, your heaters will make a small pop or click when it turns on for the first time. This is normal and nothing to be concerned about. The cause for concern comes when you hear prolonged scraping, grinding, rattling, or squeaking. These noises are a sign you need a furnace tune-up.
Short cycling is when your heaters constantly turns on and off, and never allows the heating system to run through a full cycle. Your indoor temperature is controlled by your thermostat, think of it as the tv remote for your entire heating system. If your heater is unable to reach your desired temperature, it will short cycle in an attempt to heat the home. If your system is never allowed to fully take a break, it’s taking on unnecessary strain which can lead to extensive repairs or premature system failure.
Almost 30% of your annual energy bill goes to heating, according to energy star. Because of this, it’s normal to see a small increase in your utility bills during furnace season. If you see a huge jump, then it’s time to call a certified Boiler Engineer. As we mentioned above, certain things can make your system work twice as hard to produce the same amount of treated air. This extra effort will be reflected on your utility bill. When our trained boiler engineers conduct a full system check, they meticulously check your entire heating system, making sure everything is working at peak efficiency. If part of your system is not working, they will let you know any next steps.
