HVAC Repair Companies
We always recommend calling a professional to repair heating systems for security and peace of mind. However there are some obvious solutions you can do yourself before you call us that might turn your heat back on.
Start by examining your thermostat. The thermostat must be toggled to “heat” and “on”. If it is a battery-powered thermostat, change the batteries if you haven’t changed them in the last year. If you have a programmable thermostat, check the date and time is programmed to be “on” at this time.
Have you inspected the circuit breaker for your boiler/heating equipment to see to it that it hasn’t tripped? You can shut off the breaker and check the fuse if the breaker was “on”. You can also turn the switch on and off to make sure the button stays in the ON placement. If it doesn’t stay on, you have an electric problem with the circuit.
Did this fix the problem? If not, just call us.
Gas and Oil HVAC Repair Near Me
If you have a gas or oil furnace, you have a gas or oil supply line that is running to your unit. This supply line has a shut off valve nearby. You can inspect to see if somehow over the summer the gas/oil supply line to your furnace was unintentionally shut off. The simple solution for this is to open up the fuel supply line.

No or restricted air flow resulting in no heat may be the result of a stopped up air filter. To inspect your Caldwell filter, hold it up to the light. If you can not see light coming through, the filter is clogged and you need to replace the filter. It is a great suggestion to buy two filters and switch out your filter two times a year, once in the spring and once in autumn. Remember that these air filters are crafted for one-way air circulation. Ensure the filter is put the right air flow direction.
Your heating equipment’s heaters can get stopped up or obstructed and as a result, your heater is contaminated with particulates and this needs to be dealt with as soon as possible. A certain indication of burner contamination is if the flames are yellow, not consistently blue and even. Over the summer, dirt and soot can accumulate on the burners and a yearly upkeep cleaning is all it requires to keep your heater's burners functioning effectively.
Many heating systems have electronic ignitions and these can malfunction. A quick fix is to switch the unit's power off and on to reset the ignition. If this does not fix it, it may be an indication that there is something else causing the pilot light to not work properly. This might be a cracked burner, and if so, you need to have a qualified service professional go over the burner to check if it is broken or otherwise rendered unusable.
What happens if you find your heater isn’t blowing air at all? This could be an issue with the thermostat, blower motor, transformer, control panel or capacitor. First ensure that the blower isn’t blocked at all. After that, if you have checked the thermostat and it is adjusted properly, a professional needs to have a look at the other possible causes detailed previously for problems and possibly replacing of that component.
Your heating unit has a control appropriately named a limit switch. A malfunction with this switch might cause the blower to run constantly, even though your thermostat is toggled to “auto”. Figuring out if the problem is with the thermostat or limit switch is quite easy. The limit switch is a fail safe sort of swtich: if the unit becomes too warm, the burner turns off immediately when it gets a signal from the limit switch. If the blower still runs constantly, but there is no heat, the high limit switch might be to blame and your a/c technician will replace the switch.
Did you know your heater's door has a safety switch? The access panel is wired so that when the door is open, the burners will not light and the fan will not switch on. Examine your access panel to make sure that it is fully shut if your furnace is not activating.

Tune Up and HVAC Maintenance
Older houses typically vented their heating units through the roof. More recent high efficiency heating systems have air intake and discharge vents that vent horizontally to the outside via the walls of your house. These vent pipes can become obstructed with fallen leaves or various other debris which can hamper their efficiency. If you have protective screening covering these outlets, make sure that they are not totally blocked with dirt which is keeping air from getting into or leaving the system.
A twice annual examination of your heating equipment and central air conditioning system will guarantee that the first cold wave will not leave you stuck inside a chilly home come Autumn or a blistering home on the initial 90 degree day in the springtime. Regular maintenance is the answer to keeping your furnace in great working order so that when you need it, it is ready to provide the efficiency you need.
