As autumn trickles away and we get closer and closer to winter—and have our heat on more and more of the time—it’s the perfect time to review the signs of a heater that needs repair. Most of us only pay attention to the heater when it’s broken. But if we can be aware of small symptoms and catch problems early, it can make the difference between a quick repair now and a total breakdown later in the season. And you definitely want to avoid having no heat in the middle of a January night in Connecticut!
Here are several symptoms you can watch and listen for. If you experience any of these, schedule heating repair right away to avoid a bigger problem developing.
