COMMON HEATER PROBLEMS
When it comes to heating repairs, there is hardly anything that Colossus HVAC’s expert technicians haven’t dealt with before. We can conduct quick and effective heating repairs if you are dealing with the following issues:
A HEATER THAT’S BLOWING COLD AIR
If your furnace is blowing cold air, the first thing you should is check the thermostat. If you have tinkered with the thermostat and the furnace continues to blow cold air, then it could be one of the following problems:
- A dirty filter
- Leaky ductwork
- Pilot light problems
- Lack of fuel
No matter the issue, we promise to identify the exact problem after a short inspection and make the necessary repairs so that your heater blows hot air again.
A HEATER THAT WON’T LIGHT OR STAY LIT
If you are working with a newer furnace, it may not have a pilot light as electronic ignitions have risen in popularity. Sometimes, it’s a simple cleaning of the sensor, but it may need to be replaced.
You should never attempt to repair your heater yourself because you could end up doing more damage. Worse than doing more damage and paying extra for repairs that could have been avoided with patience, you could also cause a carbon monoxide leak, which could be potentially lethal to everyone in your home or business.
Let all your heating repair problems be handled by the experts at Colossus HVAC because we guarantee that our work will never put you in jeopardy.
A HEATER THAT NEVER REACHES THE RIGHT TEMPERATURE
This problem isn’t always easy to detect but what it can mean is that if you generally set your thermostat to 70 degrees in the winter time, but your home only ever gets up to 66 degrees, then this is an issue. Sure, you’ve probably tried to correct the problem by turning up your thermostat but then your family complains that it’s too hot and you really can’t win!
It’s important to remember that if you are experiencing this issue, then you are not alone as it is a problem that we at Colossus HVAC receive many calls about. In some cases, this problem is because of a genuine error or malfunction within your HVAC unit and can be addressed by our skilled technicians easily. However, the reality is that often an issue of this nature occurs because the outside temperature has fallen dramatically. When the temperature in Brick drops below 25 degrees, even a fully functioning HVAC heating unit can experience problems.
When the temperature in your Brick home drops approximately two degrees below room temperature, supplemental heat comes on to assist the heat pump. Then, when the heat drops within one degree of room temperature, the back-up heat cycles off and the heat pump continues running, trying to reach the set temperature but often falling short. This type of problem usually occurs when the temperature is at its coldest – somewhere between 0 and 30 degrees.
The simple reality is that although this is a common problem, this is how heat pumps are designed to operate. The reduced heat is an unfortunate but expected result of them being able to run for long periods—that is why they are deemed to operate at such an efficiently high level. In cases like this, we at Colossus HVAC recommend you raising your thermostat by two or three degrees in an attempt to find that sweet spot that isn’t too hot or too cold!
ELECTRIC BILLS THAT ARE JUST TOO HIGH
If you’ve noticed that your electric bills are simply too high and you’re not sure why then you may have a problem with your heat pump. As is to be expected, your home’s electric bills from your heater will be highest in the coldest months of the year. The obvious correlation is a result of more heat being expended in this period. But if your bills are significantly higher than previously then it could be a direct result of a problem with the heat pump.
These problems include minor issues like a tripped breaker for the outdoor unit, to a dirty air filter or more serious problems like an iced-up outdoor unit, a refrigerant leak or the most serious problem—a damaged compressor. If this is the case, you really do need to call Colossus HVAC as soon as possible and allow us to inspect the problem in closer detail. Once we have had a chance to assess the issue in greater detail, a more accurate repair plan can be put in place.
REPAIRS VS. REPLACEMENT
All appliances have a shelf life. And even though we are confident in our ability to fix any problem with our heating repair expertise, sometimes replacement is the only option.
Furnace replacements are something that most home and business owners don’t want to spring for without warning. But, at least with our help, we can find you the right furnace that works with your budget and heating needs.
