One of the most uncomfortable things that can happen is a malfunctioning heater in your home when it is cold outside. Heating your home is often something you take for granted until something goes wrong with your system. That is when you realize how much you rely on your heating system to maintain comfort levels in the winter months. Heating repair is a service that promotes your personal comfort. The following will cover some common repairs you might need for your heating system.
1. Thermostat – One of the most common problems that cause your heating system to malfunction, lies within the thermostat. As a matter of fact, HVAC technicians frequently make repairs or calibrate thermostats. The thermostat is basically the control center of your heater, which means if it malfunctions, your heater will appear to be malfunctioning. This is an affordable repair whether it needs to be calibrated or replaced.
2. Filter clogs – It is not uncommon for the filters to get clogged. Filters are designed to catch debris, dust, and contaminants to prevent problems with the fan and motor and before they can enter into your home’s air supply. Heating repair professionals often handle this problem. It is recommended that you change your filters every 30 days for optimal air flow. If your filters get clogged due to the failure to change them, it will affect how your heater functions. At worst, it will cause problems with your motor or fan, which will require replacement. At best, changing the filter will fix the problem.
3. Air flow – Air flow problems are another common issue related to heater malfunctions. This problem can be caused by a blockage in your air ducts like a bird’s nest or a buildup of debris, clogged vents, or faulty fan belt operation. Any of these problems can cause your heater to malfunction. Most newer models have safety features that prevent operation when foreign objects are affecting the system.
These are only three examples of common issues that can cause your heater to fail to provide you with ample comfort levels in your home. Addressing these and other malfunctions in your heating system will not only improve your comfort, but also your indoor air quality, energy efficiency, and reduce your monthly energy bills.
