What Causes Heating Problems?
There are a lot of reasons that your home heating system might fail on you. At St. Petersburg AC and Heating, these are the most common emergency heating issues we encounter:
1) Broken Thermostats
Thermostats may be small devices, but they are key to your heating system. They are what tell the heater to turn on and off at temperature intervals. If your thermostat isn’t working or reading temperatures properly, you may have problems like the heater won’t turn on, the heater is constantly running, or inconsistent heating.
2) Dirty Heater Filters
Heater filters should be cleaned or replaced about once every 1-3 months, depending on the type of filter and how much use they are getting. Unfortunately, many residents forget to change filters and dust can accumulate in their heating unit and throughout air ducts. The dust can wear down parts, cause parts to break, and obstruct airflow to the point that your unit doesn’t heat efficiently.
3) Loose or Broken Fan Belts
Your heater may be working but the fan is broken and not able to move the hot air through the ducts to your home. This can be fixed with a new fan belt or by tightening parts to put the fan belt back in place.
4) Broken Pump
In central heating units, the pump is responsible for moving water around. Pumps need to be regularly maintained and tuned up or they can fail, causing your heating system to fail in the process.
5) Pilot or Fuel Issues
If your heating system is not turning on at all, it could be a problem with the pilot, ignition control, or lack of fuel. It depends on which type of heating system you are using but the good news is that these problems are generally very fast and easy to fix.
Prevent Heating Emergencies from Occurring
It is important that you have your heating system inspected and tuned up at least once per year, preferably at the start of the heating season. Inspection can reveal potential problems, such as dirty or worn parts. Fixing them early can prevent serious and costly problems. One example would be the simple step of lubricating parts to prevent them from wearing down, saving you from having to buy pricy replacement parts. Our heating maintenance plans are affordable and performed by licensed, NATE-certified technicians.
