Winter Ain’t over Yet: Keep an Eye out for Late Season Heating Problems

Reading book in warm house

Well, we’re heading into the last weeks of winter 2018/2019, which may have you thinking ahead to the warmer weather and sunny days to come. But as we New Englanders know all too well, heating season ain’t over until it’s over (remember that Nor’easter we had in early March last year?).

With average temperatures in our Central Massachusetts service area dropping into the mid-40s well into May, your heating system will be hard at work for a while longer. If you have not gotten a heating tune-up yet this season, it’s not too late!

Signs you need professional heating system service

Not sure if you need a heating house call? Here are some signs your heating equipment needs some TLC from a heating repair professional:

  • Unusual noises (grinding, banging, etc.)
  • No or insufficient heat coming from your vents or baseboards
  • Rising energy bills compared to previous years, despite comparable use and heating oil prices
  • A pilot light that burns yellow (should be blue)
  • A furnace that won’t turn on or shut off

Stay on top of heating service!

Did you know that four out of five costly heating equipment repairs could be avoided with professional preventative care for your equipment?

An annual inspection of your furnace or boiler will help identify and address any issues that could get worse down the road. If your equipment already needs a repair, remember: the more you wait, the greater your chance for a no-heat emergency.
