Heating Repairs in Evanston, IL
Although the days grow shorter as the cold creeps in for the season, a day without heat can feel like the longest day of the year. With that in mind, heating Evanston homes and businesses requires our team to be ready at a moment’s notice to perform repairs. That’s why we offer emergency heating services 24 hours a day.
But not all repairs require urgent attention. In fact, homeowners often overlook issues with their heating systems so long as their homes stay warm, and understandably so. Many heating problems simply reduce the efficiency of the system rather than turning off the heat altogether. So without inspecting your furnace, rising energy bills might be the only sign you have that something is wrong.
In addition to rising energy bills, here are a few more symptoms that can signal a need for heating repairs:
- Reduced airflow from vents
- Strange smells or sounds coming from vents
- Cold air coming from vents
- Need to frequently adjust your thermostat
- Yellow pilot lights on gas furnaces
- Newly uneven temperatures throughout the house
- Reduced indoor air quality
If you notice any of these symptoms, especially strange smells, give us a call as soon as possible. Issues like reduced airflow and uneven heating should be addressed, but they aren’t dire problems. On the other hand, new smells, such as those of rotten eggs or dirty socks, can be a sign of a serious issue that should be dealt with immediately.
Heating Installations for Evanston Homes and Businesses
As the days grow shorter and the cold begins to creep back into the North Shore, it might be worthwhile to consider whether your heating system needs a replacement. Most heating systems will last for 15 – 20 years when properly maintained and as little as half as long when not cared for.
So if your system is nearing the end of its teenage years, you should plan for a replacement sooner than later. Now, that doesn’t mean you need a new heater the day your old one turns 20. Rather, you should be aware that your system may give out on you in the not-too-distant future.
That said, many of our clients don’t want to risk their system failing on them. Thus, some will replace their heaters at the first sign of trouble if the unit is more than ten years old. But whenever you have a problem with your heat, we prefer to diagnose the issue before scrapping the unit.
Even our most seasoned technicians have been surprised by the simple causes of seemingly complex issues in some clients’ homes. By finding the root of the problem, we can provide you with the best advice on how to move forward. A new unit may very well be necessary. But if we can keep you warm with your current system for a fraction of the price, we always want you to be aware of that option.
Heating Maintenance Services in Evanston, IL
Like any machine with moving parts, your heating system needs regular maintenance. Doing so allows us to check the functionality of each component in your system, from filters to blowers, pilot lights to motors. In the process, we add lubrication where needed and clear out any debris that might reduce the airflow through your vents.
If you haven’t had your heater serviced yet this year, give us a call to make an appointment. Regular maintenance is the best way to extend the life of your system and keep energy bills low. So why wait another day, call us at 773-829-4295 today!
