Signs You Need Emergency Heating Repair

Whether it’s the first time you’ve turned on your heater for the season or it’s in the middle of a blizzard, you need your heater to work. A failing furnace, boiler, or heat pump can lead to major issues if not fixed quickly, not to mention causing your family significant discomfort. But what does it look like when your heater is about to fail?

Here are some signs to watch for:

  • Strange noises: Sudden or loud noises such as grinding, screeching, or persistent rattling could indicate loose or worn-out parts. It might be a blower motor issue, a problem with the belts, or even a sign of internal components that need lubrication.
  • Frequent cycling: If your heating system turns on and off more frequently than it used to, it’s not just working hard — it might be working inefficiently. This could be due to a malfunctioning thermostat, a clogged filter limiting airflow, or issues with the system’s internal components.
  • Cold spots or uneven heating: Some rooms in your home are comfortably warm, while others feel cold or drafty. You may have ductwork issues, where certain areas aren’t receiving the necessary airflow. Another possibility is that your heating system struggles to distribute heat evenly, which could stem from a malfunctioning blower fan or a compromised heating element.
  • Your energy bills cost way more: When a heating system becomes inefficient due to maintenance neglect or underlying issues, it uses more energy to provide the same amount of heat. The increased energy use from an inefficient heater can cost you thousands every year.

Is a leaking boiler an emergency?

Yes, a leaking boiler is typically considered an emergency. Leaks can start from various boiler parts due to the high internal pressure, corroded pipes, or faulty seals. If the leaking water comes into contact with the boiler’s electrical components, there’s a risk of short circuits or even fires. It’s crucial to address a leaking boiler promptly to ensure your safety and prevent further damage.

Why won’t my furnace come on?

4 common issues can cause your furnace not to turn on as expected.

  • The first place to start is your thermostat. Is it set to a higher temperature than the room’s current temp? Is it on “fan” or “off” instead of “auto”? Call us if everything looks okay, but the thermostat is still not talking to your furnace.
  • Another issue is the power supply. This could be due to tripped circuit breakers, blown fuses, or a power switch accidentally turned off. It might have gone out if your furnace is older and has a pilot light. Newer furnaces with electronic ignitions might face issues if the ignitor becomes faulty.
  • A clogged filter can restrict airflow, causing the furnace to overheat and automatically shut off as a safety precaution. Regularly check and replace your furnace filter.
  • Ensure that the gas supply is turned on. Sometimes, the gas valve can be accidentally turned off, or there might be issues with the gas supply to the house.

What Our Clients Are Saying

This was quite possible the best service call I’ve experienced. JD explained everything and worked with me so I could see how he worked through my radiator issue and we came to find a solution. He also listened and repaired my toilet so much better than the last person we had called out for the same issue. Church will be getting all my calls from now on. Thanks so much!

D. Dodwell

Kristi was top notch and provided A1 service. Very professional and pleasant. As always Church Plumbing was able to work around my schedule to accommodate me and complete my services.

T. Bay

I and my neighbors have used Church Plumbing & Heating for years and are totally loyal to this business because they deliver exactly as promised, efficiently and professionally, and at affordable prices. Recently, we had a seriously blocked kitchen sink, that one workman threw his hands up and said he couldn't fix it, and yet Church came out and fixed it in 30 minutes at a very affordable cost...

Q. Martin

Nick & JD were right on time, very nice guys & made quick work of relocating our kitchen gasoline (they had to do some ductwork too to get there!). I really appreciated how fast Church could respond to my appointment request & how easy communication was the entire project. Will be using again, will even try to request Nick & JD if possible. Thanks so much!

K. Peachey

Kristi was awesome! She drove an hour in a blizzard to come fix my furnace when I couldn't find anyone else to come help me so that we could have heat during this snowstorm. She was very nice and helpful as well!
