The Complete Guide to HVAC Heater Repair and What You Should Know

Introduction: How Does a Heater Work?

Heaters are used to heat up a room or space

A Heater is a device that is used to heat up a room or space. They produce heat by converting energy from the electric current into heat.

Common Types of Heaters and Their Uses

Heaters are a great way to stay warm in the winter. They come in many different shapes and sizes, but they all have one thing in common: they generate heat.

Where Do I Start with Fixing my Broken Heater?

The first step to fixing a broken heater is to unplug it and turn off the power. Next, you should inspect the heater for any visible damage. If there is any, then you should replace the part that needs to be replaced. If there isn’t any visible damage, then you should check if it’s plugged in and if the breaker is off. If it’s plugged in and the breaker is on, then you may need a professional electrician to look at it.

If your heater is not producing heat or seems too hot, then check if there are any leaks or signs of water coming from under the unit. You can do this by using a dry towel or tissue paper around all of its edges and corners as well as underneath it.

Why is it Important to Know About the Life Cycle of Your Heater?

The average furnace lasts about 15 to 20 years, but there are some that last even longer. Systems that have lasted this long have had regular preventive maintenance done on them. Most parts in furnaces won’t last through the whole cycle, so repairs and replacement parts are a lot of the time, too. In most cases, they’re cheaper than having to buy a new one. When the heat exchanger in a furnace breaks down, this is not the case. This is because this is the most expensive part of a furnace.

When is the best time to get your furnace checked out?
Tune-ups and preventive maintenance are very important for the life of your heating system. Our HVAC experts will check the heating unit for broken parts and clean the system. We can also look at and clean your ductwork if it’s needed. When you clean your heating system, you make it work more efficiently and it lasts longer. If you live in a place where there is a lot of dust and dirt in the air, it also makes the air cleaner.

If the furnace doesn’t work the way you think it should, let us know. Allowing the system to run with worn or broken parts can make it less efficient and shorten its life.

Common Propane Gas Furnace Problems and What to Do About Them

Losing your heat in the middle of winter can put your life in danger. Watch this video to learn how to stay warm when your furnace stops working.

Here are the four problems that happen most often with furnaces. Read on to find out how to fix many of these problems and what you can do to keep them from happening again.

No Heat

One of the most common furnace problems is that there is no heat. There’s no one thing that could have caused the lack of heat, so you’ll have to look into it to find out what’s wrong.

First, make sure the thermostat is working. You can turn off the heat or set it to a low level. If this is the problem, change the setting on the thermostat.

If the problem isn’t the thermostat, make sure the propane valve is closed. If a valve is closed, propane can’t get into the furnace to heat the air. If it’s locked, you can open it yourself or ask a professional for help if you need to.

A blown fuse is the third thing that could cause there to be no heat. This fuse needs to be changed out. You will need to set up a gas furnace repair to do this.

When working with propane, you should always be very careful. Teach your kids about safety with activities that are fun and easy for the whole family to understand.

Lastly, if your furnace has a pilot light, look through the tiny window on the front of the furnace to see if it is on. The tip of the flame should touch the thermocouple. If your furnace doesn’t have a pilot light but instead uses an electronic ignition, check to see if it is on.

Fan is Not Running

If you find that the fan on your furnace is not running, look first through the inspection window in the blower compartment.

Do you see a green light that blinks? If so, move on to the next tip on how to fix a broken furnace.

If your furnace has a red light or no light at all, the transformer, control board, blower motor, or run capacitor could be broken.

Check the breaker if you saw a green light. If it trips, look at the control board to see if there are any loose wires or burned spots. Do not turn on the power again until these problems have been fixed by a trained professional.

Blower Does Not Turn Off

You suddenly realize that your gas furnace’s blower has been going nonstop for at least an hour. What’s next?

Do some troubleshooting to find out if the problem is the setting or the fan.

First, look at the thermostat to see if the fan is set to run all the time. The fan shouldn’t be on all the time because it needs to cool down between uses. You should set your thermostat to automatic so that the blower can turn on and off as needed.

The fan’s control switch could also be the reason why the blower won’t turn off. If the switch doesn’t let the blower turn off, you will need to replace this part.
