Heating Systems Snapshot

The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) provides a helpful look at various heating systems including furnaces, boilers and heat pumps. ACEEE describes furnaces: “A furnace works by blowing heated air through ducts that deliver the warm air to rooms throughout the house via air registers or grills.” These systems are powered by electricity, natural gas or fuel oil. Boilers “distribute the heat in hot water, which gives up heat as it passes through radiators or other devices in rooms throughout the house.” In most homes, boilers use natural gas or heating oil. Heat pumps are described as “two-way air conditioners … scavenging heat from the cold outdoors with the help of an electrical system, and discharging that heat inside the house.” There are also state-of-the-art heating systems, such as radiant floor heat, ductless heat pumps and combined heat and power (CHP).

Signs Your Heating System Needs Attention

Smell: The Carrier website describes normal dust burn off as “a light burning smell that should dissipate relatively quickly.” They share a list of odors that are cause for concern: electrical, metallic or plastic burning smell, musty/moldy/locker room smell, and rotten eggs/sulfur (vacate the premises and contact the gas company right away as this may signal a gas leak).
Sound: The Spruce cautions homeowners to take notice of any sounds their HVAC system is making. Noises listed include scraping, thumping, humming, squealing, banging and rumbling. They recommend calling a professional and turning off the power and gas to your system.
Cost: Bob Vila warns readers about the link between rising energy bills and a furnace in need of repair (also note the reminder about changing filters).
