Signs Your Heater Needs Repair
Wouldn’t it be convenient to turn on your heater during the cold winter months and have it work each and every time? Unfortunately, that’s not how the real world works where heating repairs are a necessity. Generally, heating repairs should be completed as soon as you notice an issue with your heating system because the longer you wait, the more costly the issue can become. Here are a few signs you should look out for:
What’s that Noise?
If your heating system is making an odd noise that you’ve never heard before, it could mean that you need heating repairs. For example, if your heater starts to grind or whistle when running, be sure to immediately contact a professional heating technician to evaluate the situation.
What’s that Smell?
Similar to a hearing an odd noise, smelling an odd smell is an indication that your heater needs repair. For example, a persistent burning smell means that something is wrong with your heater. The smell of fuel is another sign that your heater needs immediately repair. In either case, it’s crucial that you contact a professional heating technician to evaluate the situation right away.
Why is it Still Running?
A heating system that doesn’t cycle off when it should is a big problem. Just think about it. Continuously running your heater wastes a ton of energy and puts unnecessary wear and tear on your system. In fact, it’s just as bad as short cycling, which occurs when your system turns on and off too frequently. If you are experiencing irregular cycling, like continuous cycling or short cycling, contact a professional heating technicians to evaluate the situation and prevent damage to your heater.
Types of Heating Systems We Repair
With a furnace, heated air gets blown through ducts and is then released through air registers or grills to heat the various rooms of your home or business. Generally called a forced warm-air system, a furnace is powered by electricity, natural gas, or fuel oil.
There are some common problems that can develop in these different types of furnaces, including problems with the motor’s capacitors, bent or broken fan blades, and worn out fan belts. Cracks, holes, or disconnected ductwork can also create problems with your furnace affecting air loss and indoor air quality.
Boilers are a special type of water heater that distributes heat in hot water. Heat is given up as it passes through radiators or under floor tubing located throughout your home or business. Typically, residential boilers are fueled by natural gas or heating oil.
When it comes to fixing boilers, you need to call a professional to make sure the repair gets done right the first time. Some common problems with boilers that require professional repair include fixing the circulator pump, repairs to the expansion tank, flushing the system and sealing leaks.
Heat Pump Repair
Heat pumps can be best described as a two-way air conditioner. In the warm months, an air conditioner moves heat from inside a home or structure to the outdoors. Alternatively, in the cold months, the heat pump reverses this flow and, with the assistance of an electrical system, takes any available heat from the outdoors and releases it indoors. Heat is then distributed through a forced-air system.
A common problem that our heating technicians encounter with heat pumps is refrigerant leaks, which can develop in a number of locations due to the system’s design. Another problem area with heat pumps can be the compressor. It’s components can wear out because it operates under a lot of pressure.
