Signs Your Heater Needs Repairs
If your house is suddenly freezing in the middle of winter, it’s a pretty sure sign that your heater isn’t working correctly. However, there are also other symptoms that can indicate you need repairs. Other signs to watch for include if some areas of your house are warmer than others, if you hear loud noises coming from the unit, and if your utility bills are increasing.
If you notice these symptoms, call our experts at Affordable Plumbing, Heating & Air.

How a Malfunctioning Heater Can Impact Your Home
If your heater malfunctions, it can leave your house cold and uncomfortable. It can also have larger impacts, including potentially making your family sick if there is an issue with your system that causes a serious problem like a carbon monoxide leak.
A malfunctioning system can also result in lower indoor air quality, as it’s not properly removing particles from the air, and higher utility bills.
What Is Considered a Heating Emergency?
When your heater malfunctions, you might not know when to call for urgent repairs, or when to wait and book a standard appointment. A broken heater can be considered an emergency if:
- It goes out when the temperatures dip below freezing. This could lead to frozen pipes and other issues.
- You have small children or people in your household with illnesses or disabilities that require the home to be at a comfortable temperature.
- There is a crack in your system that could lead to a carbon monoxide leak or a gas leak.
