It’s never fun when appliances break down, but it’s especially annoying when it’s your heater that’s not working. During the winter, it’s important that you have confidence in your heating system, and with One Hour Air Conditioning and Heating Del Rio, you can have that confidence.
Hopefully there is nothing wrong with your heating system when you need it most, but if worse comes to worse, our team of heater repair experts can repair heating systems to good as new. Some reasons that you may need heating system repair are: lack of regular maintenance, clogged filters, and pilot light issues.
Lack of regular maintenance is a death sentence for your heating system. If you’re not cleaning your burners, filters, air ducts and inspecting your system on a regular basis, then you’re asking for a heating system break down. You should be performing heating system maintenance twice a year, because this will prevent several causes of heating system failure.
Like any other appliance, the more you use your heater over time, the greater chance it has for needing heater repair. With just normal wear and tear, the belts and bearings are the first to go. Another thing to watch out for in heaters are obstructed air filters. This can cause the system to work harder, and cycle more often than necessary.
Filters become obstructed or clogged when people don’t change them often enough. A good rule of thumb is to change them twice a year, but there are factors that may cause you to need to change them more often. Some of these factors include: pets living in the home, how many people are living in the home, the air filter type, and how much air pollution there is around the home.
Another issue you should be mindful of is the functionality of your pilot light or ignition system. If you notice that your heater is no longer blowing out warm air, you’ve probably got a pilot light or ignition system problem.
