What are signs that a heater needs to be repaired or replaced?
We have long, cold winters in Canada, which is why it is absolutely necessary to have routine check-ups and timely repairs performed on your heater by a trained professional. There are several signs that indicate that a heater is not operating correctly, that a homeowner should be aware of. The most obvious sign that your heater has a problem is when the device is not working at all, leading to a home with a dangerously low temperature. Our customers may notice that the problem is the heater’s thermostat, because it does not automatically turn on as temperatures drop. A non-functional heater may have something wrong with its wiring or components, causing it to spark, smoke, or emit strange odours. An additional sign of a malfunctioning heater is when it makes squealing or grinding noises, which indicates a part is worn or broken. We urge customers to call us immediately for heater repairs or replacements to avoid serious problems that could affect the safety of your home and your loved ones.
What type of maintenance is required?
There are many brands of heating systems used in private residences. Fortunately, the heating, cooling, and venting technicians who work for Bosco Home Services are trained to work on different models. One of the most important things we do while performing maintenance is check a home’s venting system inside and outside to make sure there are no blockages, such as leaves or dust. Having a ventilation system that is blocked can cause a heater to overheat or breakdown. More importantly, blocked ductwork can lead to a build-up of lethal carbon monoxide. Our technicians inspect systems for worn components and wiring, while changing air filters. A heater may need lubrication to prevent noises and overheating or a new part to replace a damaged one, and in more serious cases the whole unit must be replaced. Our technicians also verify that thermostats are operating correctly to ensure the heater turns on when it should. Before leaving a residence, we test the device to make sure it is working correctly.
How can a damaged unit affect a home?
In addition to keeping people warm inside their residence, a heater protects a home’s structure. Cold temperatures in a home or building can lead to damp walls, floors, and ceilings, as moisture collects on surfaces. Inside walls and ceilings the insulation and wiring also becomes damp, leading to mold growth that causes health problems and odours. A heater with damaged components or wiring can also create smoke that seeps into the fibres of carpets, draperies, and upholstered furniture. In extreme cases, a faulty heater may actually start a fire, which is why it is so important to take care of any problems you are having with your unit. After our technicians repair or replace a heater, you will be sure that your system is running safely and efficiently.
