Heater Repair – How Do You Know When You Need a Professional?

When the temperature plummets in New England, you need a heating system you can depend on to keep your family warm. During this time of year, your home’s heating system plays a vital role not just in your comfort but also in your safety.

There are a few heating repair and maintenance projects, like replacing filters, that are easy to take care of on your own, but there are also several jobs that need to be left to the professionals.

How do you know when you need a heater repair professional?

Watch out for these warning signs:

Warning Signs You Need Professional Heater Repairheater repair framingham

  1. Sudden unexplained spikes in your energy bill. If your heating costs suddenly rise without a known reason, it could be a sign that your heater is being forced to work harder to keep your home warm. When your system has to work harder, it causes additional wear and tear that could put you at risk for a total system failure. If you’re noticing higher than usual heating bills this winter, let one of our professional heating technicians diagnose the problem and help you find a solution.
  2. Uneven heating. When there are certain rooms in your home that aren’t as warm as the others, it may be a sign that your heater is improperly sized or too old to work as it should. It could also indicate a malfunctioning thermostat, a blocked vent or a number of other problems. Uneven heating isn’t normal, and it’s a problem that warrants a call to an expert.
  3. Heating system failure. If your heating system won’t turn on or if it stops working, call for heating repair immediately. A heating system failure can be caused by a number of factors, and if you don’t have the right training and equipment, trying to fix it yourself is a recipe for disaster. There is a high risk of gas exposure and electrical shock, so repairing a broken heater is a job that’s best left to the professionals.

  • Francis from Nicholson Plumbing and Heating was excellent. He was here to evaluate HVAC in our home. He was very patient and answered all my questions. He is also polite and easy to communicate with him. He explained technical concepts to me in layperson terms!

  • Nicholson offered what is possibly the best customer service I have dealt with in a home repair situation.  I called them because I was looking to replace my very old furnace.  They came out to do an initial estimate, and then came back when I had some further questions about my options.  After installing the furnace, they ran into some problems with my air ducts.  This happened on a Friday, and the problem was fixed by Monday afternoon.  In addition to their excellent service, they did quality work at a fair price.  I would recommend them to anyone looking for an HVAC company in the Framingham area!

  • Recently used these guys because my HVAC unit AC wasn’t working (first hot day of summer).  Showed up on time, wore booties, fixed the unit.  During the visit we talked about how my unit was having problems in the winter – which was resulting in NSTAR service calls of maybe 3-4 times per season (I am on a service plan with them).   He was the first guy to tell me WHY the problem was happening, and HOW to fix it.  I find it strange that all of the NSTAR guys etc. no one took time to point out how to fix the source of the problem…Very professional, smart.  I would use them again, and plan to for the fix on my heating unit!
