Don’t Ignore These Common Signs of Heating Problems

As great as it would be to invest in a new heating system and to know with all certainty that you will never run into problems with it, that really is not the case. All heaters, even those that are manufactured by the most trusted names in the industry, are mechanical systems and, like all other mechanical systems, they are going to run into operational problems from time to time. The best thing to do is to learn to recognize the signs of trouble and deal with them in a prompt manner.

Today, we are going to explore some of the common signs that heating repairs in Tucson are necessary. That way, you’ll know what to look for and when to call for help. Sure, we don’t use our heating systems around here nearly as much as we use our air conditioners. That does not mean, however, that we can afford to ignore the signs of trouble we do encounter. If you think your heater is struggling, give the pros here at Goettl Air Conditioning Tucson a call.

There Are Cool Spots In Your Home

No, we don’t have to deal with subzero temperatures here in Arizona. It does get plenty cold around here during the winter season, though, and it is not enough that your heater is just functioning. It needs to be functioning effectively. That means that it should be heating your entire home evenly.

If your heater is failing to do so, you could be dealing with any number of problems. It could be a malfunctioning component in a zoning system, or your air ducts could be leaking. Have hot spots in those areas during the summer? Then you could be dealing with insulation problems. A professional heating technician will be able to tell you with certainty.

Your Heater Is Making Strange Sounds

If you use electric radiant heating in your home, then the system is more or less silent. That being said, all other heating systems are going to make noise of some kind. As the homeowner, you’ll know better than anyone what your heater usually sounds like when it’s running in your home.

Keep your ears open, and be sure to report any strange sounds or sounds that are much louder than usual to a member of our staff. Banging, screeching, grinding—none of these are normal sounds of operation. Ignoring them because the heater is still functional is just setting your heater up to fail soon down the road.

Your Heater Is Emitting a Strange Odor

When you run your heater, it should not smell strange. Sure, you may notice a faint burning odor at the very beginning of the heating season when you are first running your heater after a long period of downtime. That could just be the scent of dust burning off of burners or electric heating elements. If the odor persists, though, you need to contact us right away.

This is especially true if you are not smelling burning, but natural gas. That sulfuric stench is actually the result of an additive, and it is there to keep you safe. If you smell it when heating your home—or at any other time—get out of the house and alert the appropriate authorities.

G-O-E-T-T-L it’ll keep you cool, but it’s hard to spell.

Absolutely fantastic! Our AC unit went out unexpectedly. We called Goettl and they were here so quickly. The technician immediately knew what was wrong, didn’t try to upsell sell on anything and fixed the problem within a few minutes. Will absolutely call them again. I was super impressed by the responsiveness and professionalism of Josue.

Came home from work to an 85 degree house and a broken AC. Called at 0800 and they sent Matt Lopez out by 0915. He quickly diagnosed the issue and gave me the news that no one wants to hear, it needed replaced. He was extremely professional and kind with this news and assured me that we could figure this out. He called Tony Vizzone who helped get together estimates and drop the price to something that I was able to afford. Matt and Tony made this awful experience bearable and I can’t thank them enough for all that they have done for myself and the community. I’m a customer for life now!
