5 Signs Your HVAC System Needs Repair

HVAC in need of repair?

Kearney HVAC can help!


Loud noises coming from your HVAC? Boiler system on the fritz? The pros at Kearney HVAC have earned an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau as a result of all our work on heating systems across North Shore, MA and Seacoast, NH. From boiler service to heat pump installation, we can do it all!

If you’re noticing signs of a clogged filter, reduced air flow, air duct issues, or pilot light problems, we’re here to help! Read on for 5 signs that your HVAC system is in need of professional repair.

1. You Have an Unusually Noisy System or Ducts

Loud furnace? A noisy HVAC system or duct system is not typically a great sign. While a system will make some noise when it powers up, it shouldn’t be overly loud or startling, and it shouldn’t change much from how it sounded on its first day of operation. 

2. Your System Never Stops Running

If your HVAC system never stops running, it could be a sign that your boiler, heat pump, or furnace is not working properly. Your system should be able to fulfill your thermostat settings then go into standby mode. A constantly running system suggests that you could use heat pump, furnace or boiler repair. 

3. Rooms Are Cold Even When the Heat is On

Are your rooms still cold with the heat on? This is a common symptom of an HVAC system in need of repair. First, Kearney HVAC recommends that you check your settings to ensure that they haven’t changed by accident (little kids can change your settings without even realizing what buttons they’re pushing!). If you’ve confirmed your thermostat settings and see no signs of improvement, call Kearney for repairs ASAP. 

4. Allergy Symptoms are Worse at Home

If you or a loved one experiences allergy symptoms at home more than anywhere else, your HVAC could be the cause, especially if you have ducts. First, we recommend changing any filters in your HVAC system.

If that doesn’t resolve the issue, or if your furnace smells like eggs, chemicals, or sewage, schedule a repair with Kearney so one of our HVAC technicians can examine your system and identify the cause! 

Looking to boost your home’s indoor air quality (IAQ)? Kearney HVAC also offers ionization generator installation to help elevate your IAQ and alleviate allergy and asthma symptoms.

5. Heating Costs Are Rising Unexpectedly

While there’s always a normal fluctuation in heating fuel or electricity costs, your latest HVAC operation bills should never come as a total shock. If you see a sudden and unexplainable spike in charges, schedule repairs with Kearney ASAP to avoid another month of super high costs.
