Troubleshooting Tips for Heating Problems
If you're having issues with your heating system, you can perform some basic troubleshooting before calling a professional. These tips may help you get your heating system back online more quickly and potentially save you the cost of a service call.
If you're having heating problems, try these tips:
- Thermostat Settings: Check your thermostat to ensure it's set to "heat." If it's set to "cool," “fan,” or "off," your furnace won't produce any heat. Also, check if the temperature set is higher than the current room temperature or if you have any automated scheduling features turned on.
- Circuit Breaker: Confirm that your furnace's circuit breaker is on. If it's off, turn it on and see if your furnace starts working. If the breaker trips frequently, there might be a more significant issue.
- Air Filters: Dirty or clogged air filters can obstruct air flow, reducing your heater's efficiency. Regularly inspect and replace the filters as needed. For the average homeowner, we typically recommend changing air filters every three (3) months.
- Vents and Registers: Ensure all the vents and registers in your home are open and not blocked by furniture or other objects. Blocked vents can cause uneven heating.
If your heater is still malfunctioning after trying these tips, it's time to call the professionals from Moe Plumbing Services. Trust us to get your heater or furnace back up and running smoothly.
Signs Your Furnace or Heater Needs a Repair Inspection
In Los Angeles, our heaters may not be needed nearly as much as they are in colder regions of the country, but when we do need them, we expect them to function efficiently and safely. Being proactive about repairs and recognizing signs of trouble can ensure reliable heating when necessary.
Some signs that your heating system is struggling include:
- Inconsistent Temperatures: If your heater isn't maintaining a constant temperature or rooms in your house are heating unevenly, this could signal a problem.
- Unusual Noises: If you start hearing strange noises – banging, popping, rattling, or squealing – from your heater, it's time to have it inspected.
- Frequent Cycling: If your furnace constantly turns on and off, this could indicate an issue worth examining.
- Poor Air Quality or Circulation: If you notice dust, soot, or rust particles in the air, or if rooms are getting stuffy, this could be a sign that your furnace needs an inspection.
- Increased Heating Costs: A sudden increase in your heating bill could mean your furnace is not working at its peak efficiency.
If you notice any of the above signs, do not hesitate to contact Moe Plumbing Services. We assure you of fast, experienced repairs to restore your heating system to peak performance.
When to Replace Your Heating System
While effective and timely repairs can significantly extend the lifespan of your heating system, there comes a point when replacing your old, out-of-date, or poorly running heater or furnace becomes a more economical and efficient solution. At Moe Plumbing Services, our team of heating repair specialists will not only help you with heating repairs. We are also here to advise you of when a replacement is a more viable option.
Signs that you may need a new heater or furnace include:
- Age of System: If your heating system is 15-20 years old, replacing it may be more efficient.
- Frequent Repairs: A new system could be more economical in the long run if your furnace requires constant repairs.
- Rising Energy Costs: If your energy bills are continually increasing despite regular maintenance, it could indicate that your system is no longer efficient.
- Inadequate Heating: If your system struggles to maintain a comfortable temperature or your home has cold spots, it could be time for a new system.
Our team at Moe Plumbing Services is committed to providing honest, transparent guidance. We will never pressure you into purchasing a new system unless it's genuinely required. In the event that a replacement is advisable, we will guide you in selecting the most suitable new heater or furnace for your home and your budget, ensuring you make a decision that best fits your needs.
Complete Home Evaluations to Ensure Your Comfort Year-Round
Additionally, we do not just stop with heating equipment. We will conduct a complete evaluation of your house or business and provide tips on how you can efficiently maintain the level of comfort. We provide annual heater maintenance to get your system in working order for the winter. This will not only protect your equipment and your warranty, but it will ensure your safety as well.
