Signs Your Heater Needs Repairs
Is your house cooler than it should be, even when your heater is running? It could indicate your unit needs to be repaired. Watch for symptoms like the following that can indicate your system needs to be serviced:
- Your property isn’t warming to the temperature set on the thermostat.
- Heat isn’t being evenly distributed throughout your home.
- There are loud noises coming from the unit.
- Your monthly utility bills are rising without an increase in your usage.
- There are leaks in your ductwork.
If you notice these symptoms, call StoneBridge Heating & Air Conditioning to schedule services.
What To Expect During a Routine Maintenance Visit
Our experts recommend that you have your heater serviced by a professional at least once a year. During these tune-ups you can expect a technician to perform the following tasks:
- The contractor will shut off the power to the unit. This is done to protect both him or herself and your household.
- He or she will examine all of the inner components of the system to make sure they are functioning as expected.
- The professional will inspect the belts and other parts and look for signs of wear and tear. If the contractor finds a part that should be replaced he or she will likely alert you to the issue and ask if you want him or her to replace the part during the inspection. This will help prevent your unit from needing repairs later.

How a Malfunctioning Heater Can Impact Your Home
A broken heater can have a larger impact on your home than failing to keep your property warm. It can also have the following effects:
- Risk of illness for your family. A malfunctioning system – especially if there is a serious issue with your system, like a carbon monoxide leak – can put your household’s health at risk.
- Lower indoor air quality. A broken unit can fail to remove all of the particles from the air, like dust and debris.
- Risk of fire. Certain issues with your system can cause an increased risk of fire.
- Higher utility bills. If your unit is working too hard to warm your home it can cause your electric bills to increase.
