When Should You Call Emergency Heating Services?

When your furnace fails to heat your home in the coldest winter months, contact us so we can provide you with emergency service. It doesn't have to be a serious repair situation. Once you find out that your furnace stops working efficiently, you need to call an HVAC technician, like 1-800-Plumber +Air of Portland to restore your heating system to its best condition. Be sure to pay attention to these signs:


The thermostat isn't working


A thermostat should always have the correct setting to work properly. If it is not responding, it means that the settings might be causing the problem. If you can't get heat, you should call emergency services for your thermostat.

The heating system produces strange sounds


Another sign that your heating system isn't working is when it makes strange noises. It can be a knocking, ticking, or thudding sound. These noises are an indicator that your furnace could be seriously damaged. If ignored, the problem can get worse and may lead to expensive repairs or even replacement.

You smell a rotten egg or sulfur in your home


If you operate your heating system through gas, taking extra care of your furnace is necessary because the lack of maintenance can shorten the lifespan of your system. You'll know your furnace is failing when you smell sulfur or mercaptan. If this happens, shut off your gas and call an emergency service to address the problem.


Heating system producing cold air


While it might be cold outdoors, your heating system shouldn't pull from it. If the cold air comes from your heating system, the issue might have to do with a misbehaving furnace.


How to Protect Your Heating


Without maintenance, your heating system will be prone to damage. That's why 1-800-Plumber +Air of Portland will make your home and your loved ones safe and warm by providing you with a heating system that functions well. These safety tips will prevent carbon monoxide poisoning and fire:


General heating safety tips:


  • Your portable space heater, furnace, or fireplace should be 3 feet away from any heating equipment.

  • Ensure a kid-free zone around your space heaters or open fires.

  • Avoid using your oven to provide heat for your home.

  • Plug in only one heat-producing appliance at a time.

  • Don't forget to turn portable heaters off before you go to bed or when you leave any room.

  • Use the correct fuel intended for burning space heaters as recommended by the manufacturer.

  • Install carbon monoxide alarms so you can prevent the risk of Carbon Monoxide poisoning. Alarms must also be tested on a monthly basis to make sure they can properly detect gas leaks.

  • If you suspect a gas leak, avoid lighting the appliance. Leave your home right away and call your local gas company or fire department.

  • Don't leave candles unattended.


Heating equipment safety tips:


  • Have 1-800-Plumber +Air of Portland install a stationary space for your heating equipment like water heaters or central heating system as they will perform the installation according to the manufacturer's recommendations and local codes.

  • Avoid DIY installation to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning

  • Be sure to clean your furnace or heating equipment, by scheduling maintenance regularly


Additional Tips



Your heating system will be at peak performance if you ensure regular maintenance. While your furnace isn't meant to last, some best practices can extend its lifespan. You'll need to check your thermostat settings first to ensure that you operate it based on the programmed temperatures. Any electrical connections should be tightened as well because any faulty connection can cause your heating system to operate inefficiently.


Keep moving parts lubricated because the lack of lubrication can cause your equipment to wear out more quickly than expected because of friction in motors. The heating system should operate and shut off correctly and this can be achieved if you check system controls. Take time to check the gas or oil connection, burner combustion, and heat exchanger to ensure they operate properly. Before the warm weather starts, your indoor and outdoor coils must be properly cleaned to prevent skyrocketing energy costs.
