3 Possible Heater Repair Needs

cold-man-no-heatOur state isn’t exactly know for having fall or winter seasons with record-setting cold temperatures. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t get pretty darn cold. And when the temperatures do drop, the most important thing to have in your home is a working heater.

But what if you wake up one morning and you go to turn on your heater…and it never starts up? It is never fun to be the person standing in the hallway and shivering while you try to remember when the last time was that you saw your friendly local heating technician from Robbins Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.

A heater that isn’t working, or even is just barely working, is likely in need of some form or repairs. Not sure what repairs your heating system may need? Not to worry because we can give you some insight on how to tell what may be causing your spine-chilling issue.

What Is the Problem?

There is more than one reason that your heating system might need repairs. Some potential causes include:

There is a Broken Fan

If your heater has a broken blower motor fan there will be a few signs to look and listen for. The first sign of a broken fan is a strange clanging noise which could be from a fan piece that is broken and rattling in the ductwork, or loose and about to broke. The next sign of a broken fan is a lack of hot air making its way through your vents.

The Hot Air Is Being Blocked

The motor is running and the system responded to the thermostat, but the hot air is barely making its way into the room. This is likely a sign of a majorly clogged filter or blocked vents. A professional will be able to quickly and properly address both of theses issues  if they are the source of your repair needs.

Your Unit Was Improperly Sized

The biggest indicator of an improperly sized heating system is that it short-cycles or never turns off. If it short-cycles it means the unit is too big constantly turns on and off rather than finishing a full cycle. In contrast, a unit that is too small will always run because it can never accomplish its goal. Either way this issue will be one that causes your bills to skyrocket and can lead to your system breaking down. It is best to get your heater properly sized before this takes too big of a toll on it.

Resolve Those Repairs

There are, of course, more than three potential repairs that your heater may need addressed, such as a leak in the ductwork or an issue connecting with the thermostat. Whatever the problem turns out to be though you will want to call a professional quickly so they can fix your heating in Bloomfield, NM.
