3 Signs You May Need Emergency Heating Repair

During the frigid winter months, it is imperative that you keep your heating system running in top shape. There are few things worse than waking up to find that your heat has stopped working in the middle of the night, effectively turning your home into an igloo. Thankfully, if your heating system does malfunction, One Hour can provide emergency heater repair for Montgomery County and across Southeastern PA with guaranteed on-time arrival when you call.

In an effort to prepare you for the possibility of a heating failure, we have compiled the three primary warning signs that require emergency heater repair. These heating red flags include:

Thermostat Issues
If your thermostat displays a noticeably different temperature than what it feels like inside your home, it could be an early indication that your system needs attention. We see plenty of clients whose systems are otherwise working correctly, but the sensor that corresponds to the temperature reading on their thermostat is not.

While it is often a simple thermostat issue, it can also be a sign that your heater needs a full repair. We strongly recommend calling one of our technicians to have a look while you still have heat, rather than waiting for your system to fail completely.

Strange Noises
If you can hear strange noises coming from your furnace, chances are high that your heating system is crying out for help. Typically, any sounds coming from your heater that seem out of the ordinary are not a great sign. In most cases, they mean that your heater is working harder than it should be to produce the energy to warm your home. Even if your system seems to be working properly, allowing it to continue running while it’s making odd noises can eventually wear it down and cause it to fail.

The experienced HVAC technicians at One Hour are more than happy to take a look at your system if it is making atypical noises, even if it still seems to be functioning properly. When it comes to losing your heat in the dead of winter, it is always recommended to err on the side of caution.

Heater Failure
The most severe (and most obvious) reason you would require emergency heater repairs in Bucks County or anywhere else in Pennsylvania is that your heat has stopped working completely. Not only will the inside of your home become increasingly frigid, but when your system fails altogether, you run the risk of letting your pipes freeze and potentially burst. This scenario merits an immediate call to One Hour. We pride ourselves on showing up promptly and using our 33+ years of experience to solve the problem quickly.
