How Do I Know My Heating Unit Needs to Be Repaired?

There is no one surefire sign your heating system needs to be repaired. However, there are lots of little indicators that you may have a problem which are easy to keep an eye out for year-round. While most people never even think about getting their heating system repaired until a problem is staring them in the face, it’s always better to call a technician sooner rather than later. Even if an issue is not clearly evident, calling for service now may end up saving you money in the long-run, as an experienced Caldwell heating repair technician will be able to diagnose and solve issues quickly, saving you money on costly fixes, or even whole-system replacement in the future.

Common Signs You've Got A Problem With Your Heater Include:

  • It’s emitting a burning smell
  • It’s making a strange rattling or banging sound
  • It keeps short cycling (turning off and on erratically)
  • It refuses to turn on at all
  • It doesn’t work well with your thermostat
  • It leaves cold spots, heating certain rooms well and others not at all
  • It runs for extended periods of time without properly heating your home

10 of the Most Common heating Problems

Over our years in business, we've been able to diagnose a variety of issues with heating systems in need of repair.

Some of the most common heating problems to be on the lookout for include:

  • No fuel: Regardless of the type of heating system you have, it requires fuel to run. If the fuel is low or it's unable to power your unit, it will cause your system to start to work less efficiently. This can result in cold air, foul odors, and more.
  • A moldy unit: If you have inadequate ductwork or your property is poorly insulated, moisture can build up in your unit. The longer it builds up, the more prone it is to mold growth. You can tell if you have a moldy unit if you start to smell a musky odor.
  • Pilot light or ignition control issues: If you're dealing with intermittent or no heat, it could be the result of your ignition control or pilot light malfunctioning.
  • Dirty or clogged filters: When the filter is dirty or clogged, it creates less area for warm air to circulate through, thus making your system have to work harder to keep your home a desired temperature. Another issue that dirty or clogged filters can cause is a blown limit switch, which is what controls the fan.
  • Leaky ductwork: This problem can be hard to detect if you're not specifically looking for it. One way to check if your ducts are leaky is to walk by the ductwork in your attic and see if you feel any air blowing. Should you, give us a call as soon as possible. Leaky ductwork makes your unit run less efficiently.
  • Faulty or aging components: If you're having issues with circulation or air flow, it could be the result of faulty or aging fan motors, belts, ducts, or bearings. When they aren't operating as they should, it can cause your unit to overheat.

Prevent Heating System Breakdowns With Regular Filter Changes

Scheduling regular maintenance for your heating system keeps it running at peak performance. One critical part of the maintenance process is your filters. The primary purpose of your furnace filter is to protect your equipment. Running your system without a filter can damage your furnace and lead to costly repairs. As mentioned above, excessively dirty filters restrict airflow, can cause poor system performance, added energy consumption, and even premature system breakdown. It is best to check your filters monthly and replace them when they become dirty.

How Often Should Filters Be Changed?

  • Standard 1 inch thick filters may need to be replaced as often as monthly
  • Large 4 - 5 inch thick filters can easily last six months between changes

Our heating repair and maintenance technicians in Caldwell recommend using sizeable pleated media air cleaners when possible. They have minimal air restriction, do a fantastic job of protecting your equipment from the build-up of dirt, and help reduce visible dust in your home.
