What Are Signs That Your Wall Heater Is Damaged?
Many house heating systems are designed to be largely invisible and seamlessly incorporate into the design of your house. That’s why it can be challenging to spot when your house is running on the wrong heater, especially if no one ever breaks out the thermostat to make changes. You can generally spot your heating system when it has broken down and is doing something it wasn’t designed to do; however, there are a few telltale signs that you can look out for that will give you an idea as to when it may be time to call a residential wall heater repair service.
Lower Than Expected Temperatures
The first thing that you will notice when your heater starts to malfunction is that the room’s temperature will start to drop. Even though you turned up the thermostat, it may not be sufficient to keep your home warm. It can be tempting to blame a change in the weather but, in fact, a heater that isn’t working properly will not be able to keep your home warm enough. In many cases, you might have to turn your thermostat up to compensate for a heater that is not functioning correctly.
Is Always On
You will notice that your wall heater is always on, but you do not use it that often. If you have a gas-powered heater, this means that you may have left it on when you weren’t home. If you have a wood-burning heater, it could mean that it is heating up. While having your heater always on might seem convenient, it is not an efficient use of fuel and can put unnecessary strain on your system, meaning it may need to be replaced sooner than later.
