Can I repair my heater myself?
Sometimes, yes. But heating systems depend on several interconnected units and parts, many of which contain delicate or complicated electrical components. Even a small mistake can cause problems down the line, and any work with electrical components can be dangerous for anyone who isn’t an expert. Luckily, there are some heating fixes that any homeowner can do.
Here are 5 simple heating fixes:
- Check to make sure nothing is blocking the air vents. If furniture, objects, or debris is blocking an air vent, it can prevent warm air from spreading through your home and cause your heater to work harder.
- Make sure the thermostat is on and has fresh batteries. If the thermostat is off or out of power, your heater won’t turn on when it’s supposed to.
- Check that the heater or furnace is receiving power. If your heating unit isn’t turning on, try turning on an appliance or turning on the lights in the room. If the room doesn’t have power, make sure the circuit breaker hasn’t been tripped. If you check the circuit breaker and still aren’t receiving power, call your utility provider to ask about local power outages.
- Check that the thermostat is set to heat. Make sure any timers are set according to your needs.
- Make sure all windows and doors are completely shut. If there are any open windows or doors in your home, the warm air will escape outside and cause your heater to work harder than it needs to.
If these fixes don’t solve your heating issues, don’t hesitate to call a heating professional for assistance. At Ambient Edge, our technical specialists are trained to look for small and hard-to-find issues and signs of wear and tear. And because they’re all experienced industry experts, they can diagnose and fix most heating issues within a brief service call.
How do I know if I need urgent repairs?
Not every heating issue requires emergency repairs. But if you’re not a heating expert, it can be hard to tell what issues require immediate repairs to avoid major and expensive repairs. In general, if you notice anything out of the ordinary with your heating, it’s always a good idea to call a heating professional for advice. But there are a few signs to look for that signal a need for urgent repairs.
Here are some signs you’re experiencing a heating emergency:
Heat won’t turn on. The most obvious sign your heater needs urgent repairs is if it just won’t turn on. A broken heater on a cold night is an urgent problem for any household. Not only does it cause discomfort, it also indicates a major issue in your heater or furnace. If your home isn’t experiencing a power outage but your heater or furnace isn’t turning on, it’s probably signals a failed component within the heating system. Our technicians can inspect your heating system quickly and get it back on its feet within a brief service call.
Cool or cold air from vents. If your heater is only blowing cool or cold air, it could mean there’s a leak in your home’s ductwork or that there’s a problem with the burner or other heating components. Our technicians can diagnose the problem quickly and get it repaired fast.
Loud and strange noises. Modern heaters and furnaces are designed to run quietly. But as a heater gets older, it may start making loud banging, rattling, or high-pitched squealing noises. Loud banging may indicate a problem with the blower, while a rattling sound when the heater starts may indicate a failing motor. High-pitched squealing might signal problems with the motor bearings.
If you notice your heater or furnace making any strange new sounds, it’s a good idea to get a heating professional’s advice.
Short cycling. Short cycling is when your heater or furnace turns off only 15 minutes or so after it turns on. Short cycling can arise out of a problem with the thermostat, electrical wiring, or the ignition. If left unrepaired, short cycling can cause bigger problems as your heating unit works increasingly harder over short periods of time.
Smell of gas. Call your gas provider or fire department if you ever smell natural gas! Avoid activating any flame or heat source (including lights), and if possible turn off the gas valve to your home as soon as possible. Once your home has been inspected, call a heating professional to look at and repair your heater or furnace.
