Especially during the colder months, an emergency heating and furnace repair in Paradise, Nevada is never a fun situation. Even if it’s not freezing cold outside, you still need your furnace in working order to have hot water in your home for showers, or even just for washing your hands. And that water sure gets cold during the colder months!
Here at Ambient Edge, we have decades of experience fixing furnaces just like yours, as well as a variety of heating systems. Additionally, we never close. We are available anytime you need us, day or night, to get your heating system back in working order and reduce the amount of time you spend cold. Call us at 702-723-4704 to schedule your service.
Common Emergency Heating Issues
Typically, anytime you are without heat or hot water, you are experiencing an emergency heating situation. If you discover the problem in the morning, you may decide to put off calling the technician until you can be home for the technician’s arrival. After all, if you’re not home, you won’t feel the cold anyway.
However, there are some situations wherein you should definitely call someone pronto so as not to experience an even more serious situation as a result of waiting. Here are some heating situations that definitely qualify as emergencies.
If there is an odd smell coming from your furnace, like the smell of gas or burning rubber, you have a legitimate emergency. Turn off the furnace, open a window, and call us right away. Burning rubber may mean you have the makings of an electrical fire, and the smell of gas is never good. You need someone to look at your system right away.
If you hear a loud noise coming from the furnace that sounds markedly different from the sounds you’re used to hearing, such as a bang, screech, or buzz, turn your furnace off immediately and call a technician. Whether your unit is indoors or outdoors, loud noises are your furnace’s way of telling you that something is wrong.
Refusal to Operate
If your furnace simply refuses to come on, this may not seem like a true emergency at first. However, if it’s during the middle of a cold snap, you risk your pipes freezing and breaking, which can cause a catastrophic mess in the form of a flood. You need to get your furnace back up and running as soon as possible.
Plus, the sooner you call us, the less time you have to spend in your home cold, waiting for our technician to arrive. Call us while you’re at work, and we can meet you when you get home.
Common Furnace Problems
There are several reasons why a furnace can break down. Here are some of the more common furnace issues we tend to see when we’re on the road:
- Faulty ignition or pilot issues that stop the furnace from working
- Malfunctioning thermostats
- Frequently turning on and off, which can point to anything from a clog to an airflow problem
- A dirty filter, which causes the furnace to only blow out cold air
- Hot or cold spots in the home, which can be due to a build-up of dust or debris
These are only a few of the problems we deal with often and can fix for your furnace. Even if your furnace is running but you are still experiencing issues with it, give us a call and let us take a look.
Problems You May Be Able to Fix Yourself
Furnaces experience a few problems that you may actually be able to fix yourself.
Your furnace may refuse to work because the batteries in your thermostat are dead. (Yes, really!) Try changing the batteries in your thermostat to see if that fixes the problem.
Your furnace running may cause your power to shut off. This is a pretty common electrical issue and an easy enough one to fix. Are there any devices running on the same circuit as your heater? Simply unplug one or two of them and reset the breaker.
