What are the Signs You Need Heater Repair?

Your heater is responsible for keeping your family warm throughout the winter, so it is important to make sure it is functioning as efficiently and effectively as possible. As soon as you suspect that something might be wrong with your heater, give our team at Jackson Plumbing, Heating & Cooling a call. Even problems that appear to be minor can be indicators that something more serious is going on with your system.

Schedule a heater repair if:

  • You are constantly adjusting the thermostat
  • The heater is making strange sounds
  • The pilot light is yellow instead of blue
  • The heater is extremely noisy during operation
  • There was an unexpected spike in your electric bill
  • Your home is unevenly heated
  • There is a ton of dust in your home after running your heater
  • Your home is never quite warm enough
  • The heater is short cycling
  • It smells like something is burning when your heater is on

Why is Your Heater Blowing Cold Air?

Depending on the type of system, there are a few possible explanations for why your heater is blowing cold air. If you have a forced-air heating system, which most people do, the most likely culprit is a problem with the blower motor.

  • The blower motor is responsible for circulating air through the system, and if it isn't working properly, the air will never get warm.
  • You may have a freon leak. This is the refrigerant that heat pumps used. It is used to both transfer heat in and out of the house, so if there isn’t enough, your system won’t work properly.
  • If you have a furnace, one possibility is that the burner isn’t working properly. The burner is what actually produces heat, so if it isn't working correctly, the air will remain cold.
  • For both heat pumps and furnaces, there could be a problem with the thermostat or air filter. If the thermostat isn't set correctly, it won't signal the heater to turn on when it should. As a result, the room will stay cold even though the heater is operational.

While these are some of the most common reasons why heaters blow cold air, there could be other issues at play as well. It's best to call a professional for help. We will be able to diagnose and fix the problem quickly so that you can get back to being comfortable in your home.

How to Prevent Heater Problems

Because your heater is such a big investment, you’ll want to protect it. The best way to keep your system in top shape and avoid repairs is to keep up with routine maintenance.

Below are important maintenance tasks:

  • Check the filter and replace it every 1-3 months
  • Regularly check the pilot light to ensure it is blue
  • Make sure no flammable objects are surrounding your heater
  • Keep all air registers open and remove any items blocking them
  • Schedule a professional inspection and tune-up once a year (during fall)

What Do Our Heater Maintenance Services Consist of?

During professional maintenance appointments, your technician will carefully examine each component of your system, run a full safety and performance test, lubricate motor components, clean dirty parts, tighten loose electrical connections, and identify any problem areas.
