Signs Your Heating System is in Trouble

We’re moving deeper into the heating season, which means more strain on your commercial heating system. The more you use your heating system, the more strain is going to be put on it. That added wear and tear means a greater chance for problems to occur with the system. If you want to keep your commercial heating system in the best possible condition this winter, keep an eye out for the following signs that your system is in trouble.

Spike in Operating Costs

The older and more worn out a heating system gets, the more its efficiency will decrease. The system will be forced to operate for longer and longer periods of time in order to compensate for the loss of efficiency. This will cause the cost of operating the system to increase. If your monthly heating costs are rising for no apparent reason, it’s a pretty good indication of trouble of some sort in the system.

Strange Noises

It can be difficult to identify problems with your commercial heating system, since most of them tend to be quite subtle. One of the easier ways, though, is to listen for any strange noises coming from the system. Odd noises, from booming to grinding and so on, indicate various issues that need to be professionally dealt with. Call for repairs if you hear any strange noises coming from your system.

Loss of Output

Whether it’s less air circulation or less warmth in the air that’s being circulated, a loss of output is a definite sign that your heating system is in trouble. You could have an issue with the air handler, or with the burner assembly. Don’t ignore any loss in output. Call for repairs as soon as you notice it.
