Signs You Need Heating Repair
The most important thing you can do is to pay attention to your heater when it’s working properly. Taking the time to learn what it sounds like, how it turns on, and the little quirks it might have will help you identify when things aren’t working right.
Once you’ve noticed your furnace acting oddly you need to contact AmeriPro about heating repair right away. We’ve repair enough furnaces to be able to do so quickly and accurately. Common problems we’ve encountered include:
- Problems with air flow – Faulty blowers or blocked heating ducts can sometimes impede air flow. Both issues can be handled quite quickly.
- Thermostat issues-Thermostats wear out which makes keeping your home at the ideal temperature nearly impossible. Replacing the anticipator inside of the thermostat can generally solve the problem.
- Your home is heating unevenly-this occurs often with older systems when the insulation in the heating ducts starts wearing out. The insulation will need to be replaced and your entire home will once again become warm and toasty.
- Furnace failures
- Very little or sparse heat emanating from the unit damaged ignitors and broken blowers are generally at the root of this problem.
- Problems with pilot ignition-This could be a bad ignition switch, a clogged gas line, or a faulty sensor
- Strange smells emanating from vents- often caused from dust building up on the burner, This is a very serious problem which could trigger a fire. Shut the entire furnace off and call us right away.
Take Leaks Seriously
Carbon monoxide is something you need to take seriously. The carbon monoxide is odorless and deadly. Since 2000 approximately 100 deaths have occurred as a result of carbon monoxide, which was often triggered by a leaking furnace. Individuals with natural gas furnaces also need to worry about gas leaks which can lead to explosions.
Making arrangements with AmeriPro to come out and perform a regular maintenance check on your heater will always be the best way to prevent a potentially deadly leak. Our heating repair technicians have gotten extensive training from all the different furnace manufacturers and carry the tools needed to detect leaks. They also have the ability to identify worn or incorrectly used parts which could break and trigger a leak. As soon the AmeriPro heating experts notice a problem, they’ll take the steps needed to repair it, keeping you and your family safe.
When you suspect you have a leak the first thing you need to do is shut off the natural gas. This should be done at the main power source, not simply at the furnace itself. Once you’ve shut the gas off, you need to call AmeriPro.
