Treating Lingering Heating Repair Issues

As you use your heater less and less during the progression from winter to spring and on into summer, you may detect issues with its performance that started to develop during the cold months. If you still have any problems lingering into these last days when you may still need the heater warming your home, is it best to wait until the fall to deal with them, or should you have repairs done as soon as possible?

The answer is: as soon as possible. Delays on any repairs for an important household system can mean a breakdown at an inconvenient time. Use this slower period during the spring to call up a quality cooling and heating service in Salt Lake City, UT to schedule repairs for your furnace, boiler, or radiant heater. At Your Service Plumbing, Heating & Air is ready with 24-hour emergency repairs, 7 days a week.

Some lingering issues to watch for

  • Uneven heating: If your heater begins to lose its heating power, it will cause some rooms to receive less heat than others. If you’ve started to discover some rooms feel colder than they should, don’t shrug off the trouble just because warmer weather will arrive soon. Your heating system will likely continue to decline, and you need to stop the wear and tear as soon as possible.
  • Noisy operation: You should be familiar with the noises that your heating system makes during normal operation. If it started to develop a new, unpleasant noise at the end of winter, it almost always indicates a repair need somewhere inside the system. Whether it’s rumbling in a boiler or screeching from a furnace, the sound needs the attention of a professional to see what ails the heater.
  • Odd smells from the vents: This applies to furnaces, which use ductwork to distribute heated air to the rooms. If you smell acrid or musty odors from the vents, it’s a major warning sign of something going wrong. The burning smell probably comes from a motor about to stop working. The musty smell might be due to breaks or leaks in the ductwork, which requires the work of duct sealers to fix.
  • Leaking: This applies to boilers and hydronic radiant heating systems. You shouldn’t see any leaking coming from the water tank or the pipes, and this could mean a dangerous increase in water pressure. Technicians can seal the leaks and then look for the cause, such as sediment build-up or corrosion.

Make certain that your heater goes “offline” for the summer in the best shape possible; that way it will be best prepared for the first cold day of winter. At Your Service Plumbing, Heating & Air has excellent heating service in Salt Lake City, UT to bolster your heater.

During this very unusual time, we have put a plan in place to do our part to help keep our community safe. First and foremost, we are going to stay CALM, PATIENT, KIND, and POSITIVE!

There is much to consider regarding the COVID-19 virus (Coronavirus) and its possible transmission in your home. While there are various and effective indoor air quality measures available to help protect your safety, including duct sanitization, ultraviolet (UV) germicidal light treatment, and HEPA air filters, they alone cannot protect from all forms of COVID-19 transmission. It is important to follow all official guidelines for preventing the spread of this virus.

Because we have a direct impact on the indoor environment, here are practical steps we are going to take to keep people safe:

  • Wash our hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and water
  • Cover our nose and mouth when sneezing or coughing
  • Wash our uniforms every day including cleaning our belts
  • Stay home if we are feeling sick
  • Offer a warm smile and friendly greeting instead of a handshake
  • Wear shoe covers and latex gloves in homes and businesses
  • Wipe down surfaces and equipment touched in a client’s home with disinfectant wipes
  • Wipe down door handles, steering wheels, gear shift lever every day
  • Wipe down pens, clipboards, tablets, cell phones, and anything else passes between techs and clients.
  • We have masks on each truck and will wear them at client’s discretion (Currently the CDC does not recommend that people wear masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19)
  • We are complying with all recommendations and guidelines from state agencies and will be proactive in our efforts to see that our team members and clients are protected.

As the situation unfolds, we will take each day one at a time and ensure we are being smart, supportive, and helping all those we can in our community.

Thank you for your continued support!
