We are a heating and cooling company in Australia. The owner of this company is Max Ford. Under his guidance, the company has expanded; it has grown from having only 20 employees to about 200 employees only within 5 years of operation.
Almost everyone who uses a heater at home or in the office has had to repair it a few times during its lifetime. It is because several problems affect the way it operates. Thankfully. Most systems end up working as good as new ones after successful heating repair.
Examples of the issues that affect many heaters nowadays include:
Wear and Tear
After using the heater for some time, it will most likely experience natural wear and tear of some components. It usually causes heating problems such as:
- Heat control related issues
- Airflow problems
Lack Of Maintenance
After installing the heater, it is not wise to just sit back and use it for years without having a professional check on the system. Always schedule inspections and maintenance by professionals at least once or twice every year.
Doing this gives a chance for the technicians to study the system to make sure that it is functioning the right way. At this time, they can also identify any issues that are cropping up and deal with them right away so that they do not come and explode later on.
It gives the heating system a chance to run more reliably and efficiently because everything is in its place.
Dirty And Clogged Filters
These are the primary cause of reduced airflow. When this happens, it forces the heater to put in more effort to circulate the much-needed warm air.
At times, a clogged filter may be the reason behind damaging light switches which are responsible for controlling the fan a sign that shows it is time to invest in the heating repair.
Heater Does Not Produce Enough Heat Or Does Not Heat At All
You may notice that after some time, the heater may be producing less heat than what it usually does. Sometimes, it may even stop functioning altogether.
In addition to clogged filters, reduction of heat typically occurs when someone is not using the correct size of a heater to heat up their living space. When it does not produce any temperature, it may be because of issues with the pilot light, thermostat setting, gas, or power.
If the heater’s thermostat is not operating as it should, it results to problems with comfort levels as well as with the fan.
Pilot Control Problems of Electric Ignition
When the pilot or ignition is faulty, the heater may have a difficult time heating up a commercial space or a residential home. Clogs, thermocouple problems, and drafts are some of the culprits behind the unlit pilot lights.
A Continuously Running Blower
If the blower does not stop running, it may be an indication that the limit switch is having some issues. Most of the times, repair technicians have to step in and replace it so that you can continue using the heating system comfortably.
It is time to think about heating repair when your systems automatically switch between the off and on modes. These may indicate that the heater has several issues like improper airflow, bad thermostat, or clogged filters.
