Signs Your Westwood Home Needs Heating Repairs
Whether your gas furnace is acting up or your heat pump is on the fritz, Suburban has the experience to fix the problem fast. The best way for homeowners to prevent unnecessary repair requests is by performing routine maintenance on their home’s heating system.
Routine maintenance provides your system with the adjustments it needs to perform well and last for years to come. Without proper maintenance, homeowners may notice these signs of needed heating repairs:
- Unusually high electric bill
- Uneven or insufficient heating throughout the home
- Inaccurate thermostat readings
- Continued cold spots despite cranking up the heat
- Strange sounds emanating from your system
- Poor indoor air quality
One sign of needed repairs that can’t be overlooked is when your gas furnace’s pilot light turns yellow. Your furnace’s pilot light should burn blue when operating normally.
If you notice the pilot light on your gas furnace has turned yellow, leave the home immediately and call 781-769-1515 for repairs.
A yellow light indicates that your system could be producing toxic carbon monoxide gas, which could endanger you and your family.
Heating Repair vs. Replacement
Your heating system won’t last forever, whether it’s a furnace, boiler, or heat pump. However, that doesn’t mean you have to rush out and replace it every time a repair is needed. When it comes to deciding whether repair or replacement is the best option, consider the following:
- Properly maintained heat pumps and boilers will last between 10 and 15 years, and furnaces can last between 15 and 20 years. The closer the system is to the higher end of these ranges, the more likely replacement is the better option.
- If any repair of your heat pump, boiler, or furnace exceeds 50% of the replacement cost, it’s best to replace the system.
- If the cost and frequency of repairs are increasing, it may be more cost-effective to replace rather than continue repairing a failing unit.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why isn't my heating system generating any heat?
Why do HVAC systems short-cycle?
Short-cycling can be caused by overheating, problems with your thermostat, dirty air filters, or a refrigerant leak if you have a heat pump. In most cases, short-cycling can be quickly resolved with minor repairs.
Is preventative maintenance worth the effort?
Absolutely. Staying on top of preventative maintenance will prolong the serviceable life span of your furnace, heat pump, or boiler. It will also help preserve warranty coverage, which can protect you if you have a newer heating system with a serious fault that requires prematurely replacing your unit.
