Avoid Wasting Money on Unnecessary Heating Repairs

Gas furnace

Whether you have a broken furnace or a leaky gas line, there are ways to avoid wasting money on unnecessary repairs. First, it’s best to hire a HVAC professional. A professional will know all about home-heating equipment and will not be caught off guard by any of its problems. A reputable HVAC company like Dukes of Air will have multiple technicians on staff who can all work together to fix the issue. This means that you don’t have to keep paying for the same repair twice.

The thermostat is another component that you should check regularly. A dirty flame sensor can affect the efficiency of your heating system. Its location is crucial, as it is situated close to the back of the furnace and in the path of the burner.

Oil furnace

There are a few things you can do yourself to troubleshoot your oil furnace and make it work again. First, you’ll need to remove the access panel covering the burner blower. The panel is typically held in place by several screws on the housing’s rim. Once removed, you can access the air blower and filter. There may also be a stack control that needs to be replaced. Identifying which one is broken can save you time and money.

Your oil furnace should come with a warranty that covers repairs. It’s important to get regular tune-ups to avoid expensive repairs down the line. You should also choose a company that offers a lifetime guarantee on their work.

Electric furnace

If your electric furnace has stopped working, you might want to consider hiring a professional to come and fix it. These furnaces are often fused separately from the rest of your house and can trip circuit breakers. To fix the problem, check the fuses and replace them if necessary. If this does not fix the problem, you may need to replace the furnace’s heating elements. If you have trouble locating the fuses, you should first consult your owner’s manual for your specific brand of electric furnace.

Another common problem is that your electric furnace will refuse to turn on, leaving the house freezing. This can make your family miserable and raise your risk of illness. A broken fuse or a blown circuit breaker can cause the problem as well.

Boiler

If you’re in the market for a boiler repair, you need to call a professional right away. Boilers contain gas, which can be dangerous to work with, so you shouldn’t attempt to do any of the work yourself. Call a professional to make sure the work is done correctly.

Keeping your boiler maintained can help it last for many years. However, eventually, it will need to be replaced. Before this happens, you should be aware of a few warning signs that your boiler is about to fail. If you notice the first of these signs, you should contact a professional immediately.
