Most Common Heater Repair Services In Farmington

We’ve been doing this a while and when it comes to things that can go wrong with a heating system, you really can’t surprise us. To give our clients an idea of the issues you could be facing, here are the most common repairs that our technicians find themselves providing.

Pilot Light Issues

In heaters that operate using natural gas, pilot lights are small, constantly lit flames that provide the initial spark for furnaces to ignite. Issues with your pilot light can cause start-up issues, gas leaks or even create small explosions within your system and need to be addressed immediately.

Heating Element Or Heating Coil Replacement

Electric heaters generate heat utilizing coils similar to the ones used on convection stoves. While element issues are nowhere near as serious as pilot light issues, they can still prevent your system from creating warm air.

Blower Motor Or Fan Malfunction

The blower motor is responsible for forcing air throughout your system. A weak or faulty blower motor can cause poor airflow and a broken motor will prevent it entirely.

Thermostat Issues

Thermostat issues are tricky because they can present themselves as far more serious than they are. The thermostat’s purpose is to create a user interface between the homeowner and the heater, allowing you to control your system from a simple switch in the hallway.

This means that a broken thermostat can make it seem like your entire HVAC system is down when in reality – it’s the control.

Thermostat issues are usually very easy to fix with a simple replacement. If you’re replacing your thermostat anyway, now is the best time to ask about our money-saving smart thermostats!

Clogged Air Filters

All heating systems require an adequate amount of uninterrupted airflow to function properly. Air filters contribute to airflow and are essential for removing particulates from your space.

Changing them when dirty is crucial to avoid hindering airflow. Neglecting this can lead to overheating and system failure.

Gas Leaks

Gas leaks are dangerous and any home that utilizes it as a fuel source should always have working gas detectors. Natural gas is treated with a chemical that makes it smell like rotten eggs, so anytime you notice that smell, evacuate your home and call 911.

For furnace repairs, you should contact the professionals here at Robbins.

Ductwork Issues

Ductwork is an essential component of traditional HVAC systems. When damaged or not properly installed, ducts are one of the largest points of potential efficiency loss for the system.

It’s been proven that faults in your ductwork can account for up to 30% of your system’s efficiency loss. Not to mention, dirty, unmaintained ducts can greatly lower the quality of your indoor air.

Heat Exchanger Problems

The heat exchanger is a furnace component. Its job is to be heated by the burners to act as the heat transfer medium between the direct flame and air. A cracked heat exchanger can lead to extremely inefficient heating and potentially allow dangerous gasses to pass into your system.

Heat exchanger problems are rare but one of the most significant issues you can face with your system. When they happen, Robbins is the furnace repair company for you.

Peak Heating Season In Farmington

While summer heat waves put heavy strain on air conditioning systems, Farmington’s winter months are no joke either. January is typically the coldest time of year, with average low temperatures dipping down to a bone-chilling 19 degrees Fahrenheit. Even the average high of just 42 degrees means furnaces have to work overtime to keep homes comfortable.

This combination of frigid temperatures and increased heating demand makes January the busiest month for heater repairs in Farmington. Problems like cracked heat exchangers, ignition failures and thermostat malfunctions become more prevalent as the heating load intensifies.

Preventative maintenance is crucial to ensure your furnace can make it through Farmington’s harsh January without breaking down. Having it serviced before winter allows a technician to inspect, clean and optimize performance — increasing reliability when you need it most.

Don’t get caught in the cold this January. Schedule a tune-up to avoid becoming another statistic in the winter heating repair rush.
