5 Common Heating Issues infographic (View as a downloadable PDF)

You depend on the furnace of your HVAC system to provide you with the heat you need all winter long. But before the winter temperatures arrive, the experts at Hassler recommend taking this transition period to fix any of the HVAC issues that are spiking your energy bills or undermining your overall home comfort. Here’s how we recommend fixing these 5 common heating problems:

Strange Noises Coming From Your Heating Equipment

Hearing any bangs, clanks, booms, or clicks when you adjust your thermostat? It could be a couple of things:

Clear Any Debris

Take a walk outside and clear any outdoor equipment, like a compressor unit, of any twigs, branches, or other debris that could be preventing proper operation. 

HVAC Tune Up

A strange noise could indicate a broken or failing part, like a blower fan or heat exchanger. Call in the Hassler HVAC experts to diagnose your HVAC noises!

Unexpected High Heating Bills

Are you experiencing sticker shock from an energy bill that is much higher than you planned? You may need to:

Change Your Air Filter

 A clogged air filter will force your HVAC system to work much harder than it needs to, and will send your energy bills sky-high.

Consider furnace Replacement

If your furnace is more than 15 years old, it may be time to replace them with an updated, energy-efficient model.

Smelling Something Stinky Coming from Your Vents?

Are you noticing a foul odor coming from your HVAC vents? You could be suffering from “Dirty Sock Syndrome,” which is caused by the holes and gaps in your ductwork that allow excess dirt and bacteria to build up in your system. Call in the Hassler pros to repair your ducts, and to locate any other areas that may be undermining your home comfort.

Have You Had That “One Uncomfortable Room” All Year?

Many homes have that one hard to condition room above the garage that is exempt from the existing ductwork in their home. You could be in need of:

Duct Repair

Excess leaks and poor duct design can lead to uneven heating and cooling throughout your home. Diagnose your ductwork issues with an HVAC professional.

Mini Split Installation

The energy-efficient power of a ductless mini split is a great solution to supplementing your current HVAC system, and controlling the temperature in those hard to reach areas.

Furnace Won’t Turn On

Have you found yourself staring at your thermostat, puzzled as to why your heating system won’t turn on? Make sure to check these off your list:

Check Your Thermostat Settings & Battery

Is your thermostat set to “heat”?for your furnace? It may seem simple, but double check your thermostat settings are accurate. Have a battery-operated thermostat? Install a fresh set of batteries for the new season!

Schedule an HVAC Tune-Up

If your thermostat is operating correctly but your HVAC equipment isn’t, it’s time to bring in the pros. A professional HVAC tune-up or repair with the experts at Hassler will get you the thermostat diagnosis you need.
