Home Heating Repair Service
If the weather outside your come remains constant but the inside of your house is having issues maintaining tolerable temperatures, you may need a home heating repair service. Your furnace, boiler or other home heating source and other HVAC components will need to be inspected by a professional technician to troubleshoot and inspect for problems.
An HVAC contractor or company will generally check your furnace and its parts, including the heat exchanger, blower, draft induced motor, pilot light, igniter, gas burners, valves, fans, motors, flue, thermostat control system, and the ventilation system.
How an HVAC unit creates heat in your home
Most modern homes will have one single appliance that both heats and cools the air. This is commonly called an HVAC unit, and it is often attached to a furnace in your basement. There may also be an outside component that controls the air conditioning. When the furnace is turned on, the HVAC unit contains an air handler that will push the heated air through the ducts and vents throughout your home. However, if one of the mechanical components is not working properly, you will find that your utility bills keep going up but your house keeps growing colder.
It’s important to hire a qualified professional
If certain rooms of the house feel colder than others, you may have a bigger issue than just changing the filter in your furnace. Many homeowners will attempt to make furnace repairs or replace faulty parts themselves, but keep in mind that HVAC units are hardwired into the electrical system, and safety issues can occur. Worse, if you are unable to make the repair properly, you could require a furnace replacement.
