The very first indication of a heating equipment trouble is that first cold day when your heating turns on and there is no heat. You remember that it worked fine the last time it turned on in April, what could have taken place over the summer and autumn?
HVAC Repair Contractors
We usually suggest calling an expert to fix heating equipment for safety and security and peace of mind. However there are some quick solutions you can do on your own even before you call us that might turn your heat back on.
Start by examining your thermostat. The thermostat should be toggled to “heat” and “on”. If it is a battery-powered thermostat, change the batteries if you have not replaced them in the last year. If you have a programmable thermostat, inspect the day and time is set to be “on” right now.
Have you checked the circuit breaker for your boiler/heating equipment to make sure it hasn’t tripped? You can switch off the breaker and examine 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 position. If it doesn’t remain on, you have an electric issue with the circuit.

No or limited air circulation bring about no heat might be the result of a stopped up air filter. To check your Chester’s filter, hold it up to the light. If you can’t see light coming through, the filter is clogged and you need to change the filter. It is an excellent idea to get 2 filters and change your filter two times a year, once in springtime and once in autumn. Remember that these air filters are engineered for one-way air circulation. Ensure the filter is inserted the correct direction.
Your heating equipment’s burners can get blocked or obstructed and as a result, your heater is fouled with debris and this should be dealt with immediately. A sure indicator of heater contamination is if the flames are yellow, not constantly blue and even. Over the summer, dust and residue can develop on the burners and an annual upkeep cleaning is all it requires to keep your heater's burners working effectively.
Many heaters have electronic ignitions and these can malfunction. A fast fix is to switch the unit's power on and off to reset the ignition. If this doesn’t work, it may be a sign that there is something else causing the pilot to not function properly. This could be a cracked burner, and if so, you must have a certified service technician look at the heating element to check if it is cracked or otherwise compromised.
What happens if you find your heater isn’t blowing air at all? This can be a problem with the thermostat, blower motor, transformer, control board or capacitor. First ensure that the blower isn’t blocked at all. After that, if you have actually examined the thermostat and it is set properly, a service technician needs to take a look at the various other causes provided previously for problems and perhaps replacement of that part.
Your heating unit has a control appropriately named a limit switch. A breakdown with this switch may cause the blower to run all the time, even though your thermostat is toggled to “auto”. Figuring out if the issue is with the thermostat or limit switch is rather simple. The limit switch is a fail safe kind of swtich: if the unit gets too hot, the burner turns off automatically when it receives a signal from the limit switch. If the blower still runs constantly, but there is no heat, the high limit switch could be at fault and your hvac technician will replace the switch.
Did you know that your heater's door has a safety switch? The access door is wired to ensure that when the door is open, the burners can not light and the blower fan will not switch on. Examine your access door to ensure that it is fully closed if your furnace is not switching on.
Oil or Gas HVAC Repair
If you have a gas or oil furnace, you have a fuel supply line that is running to your unit. This supply line has a shut off valve close by. You can inspect to see if somehow over the summer the gas/oil supply line to your furnace was unintentionally closed. The simple fix for this is to open the fuel supply line.
One symptom that you do not need to try and repair yourself is a gas leakage. If you smell gas from your heating unit or anywhere around it, please call a certified hvac repair service firm quickly. Your equipment may not be functioning because of a leak such as this and the very best course of action you can do for the security of your family and your residence is to get a certified professional to repair the leak today. We can take your call 24/7/365.
Older residences generally vented their heating units through the roof. Newer high efficiency heaters have air intake and discharge vents that vent horizontally to the outside via the walls of your house. These vent pipes can end up being obstructed with leaves or other debris which can hamper their performance. If you have safety testing covering these outlets, make sure that they are not entirely blocked with dust which is keeping air from getting into or leaving the system.
A twice yearly examination of your heating equipment and central air system will make sure that the first cold wave will not leave you stuck inside a chilly residence come Autumn or a sweltering home on the very first 90 degree day in the spring. Routine upkeep is the answer to getting your furnace in great working order to make sure that when you need it, it prepared to supply the performance you need.
