Signs Your Heater Needs Professional Services
Identifying the need for professional services for your heater can be challenging, especially if you’re been overlooking regular maintenance. Here are some signs indicating potential issues with your heating system.
1. Dirty Air Filter
A clogged air filter can cause the system to work much harder than needed and cause it to lose efficiency.
2. Failed Pilot Light
Most modern pilot lights are electronic ignitions, but there are still some that have a constant flame. There should be safety features in place that will shut the system down if the pilot light fails. If your system will not start, this is the first place to look.
3. Unreliable Thermostat
Your thermostat is your heater’s connection to your indoor space. It knows what the temperature is, and what temperature you want it to be. If the batteries are low or the thermostat is not properly calibrated, it will never tell the system to start.
4. Damaged Heat Exchanger
In heating mode, the heat exchanger expands. And when the system is not running, the heat exchanger contracts. These small movements over time can cause cracks in the system. These cracks can cause poor combustion of the gas, lower the efficiency of the system and can leak carbon monoxide into the home.
5. Weak Ventilation
Poor airflow drastically reduces the furnace’s ability to deliver heated air to the home. This could be due to your air filter or a number of other factors. Closed vents, leaky ductwork and a worn-out blower can all contribute to poor airflow.
6. Broken Heating Elements
General mechanical problems play a role in any system. If your furnace is old and has not been maintained seasonally, it might save you from some cold winter nights to schedule your furnace tune-up.
When you notice any of these signs, it’s essential to address the problem promptly by contacting a qualified HVAC technician. Delaying furnace repair can lead to further damage, reduced efficiency and safety risks. To avoid problems, schedule yearly furnace inspections and tune-ups with Summit Air Conditioning & Heating.
