Top 5 Reasons for Emergency Heating Service Calls

emergency heating serviceNot sure when to call for emergency heating service and when to wait for a scheduled repair appointment?

A cold New Jersey night can quickly become much worse if the heater in your home suddenly stops working. In some cases, it might be fine to throw on another blanket and wait until regular business hours to schedule repairs. But, in other cases, like we’ll review below, it’s advised to call in for emergency heating service.

Signs You Need Emergency Heating Service

Furnace Won’t Turn On

If your furnace doesn’t even turn on, first try resetting the breaker and make sure that your thermostat is working properly. If it’s extremely cold out and it still won’t turn on, it’s best to call for emergency heating service.

Lack of Heat Output

If your furnace is running but not providing adequate heat, it’s likely the air filter is clogged. Clean or change the filter to see if that fixes the problem. If not, evaluate whether the heat is warm enough to wait until regular business hours, if not, don’t hesitate to call.

Unusual Odors

Do you smell musty odors? Your air ducts or air filter may need to be cleaned. This can usually wait. However, if you smell smoke, burning plastic or chemical odors, you may be facing a bigger problem with your HVAC or electrical system, in which case it is advised to call in for emergency heating service, immediately.

Carbon Monoxide Alarm

If your CO detector sounds an alarm, you could be facing a major problem—call Brown’s. If you smell natural gas—it smells like sulfur—much like rotten eggs.  Shut down the system, open a window or two if it is possible and call NJNG at 800-GAS-LEAK (800-427-5325), and then call Brown’s at 732-741-0694 to have it inspected.

Strange Sounds

Tapping, clicking, ticking… some noises could be coming from damaged parts, such as the fan belt, which can wait until regular business hours. Other noises, such as screeching or banging could be due to improper combustion or damaged motor. If you’re unsure of where the sound is coming from or what it means, it’s best to err on the side of caution and get the system inspected.
