Common Heater Problems

January 30th, 2018

As soon as the cooler weather rolls along, many people end up making calls for heater repair services. While most heater issues are not emergencies, they are still inconvenient. If you suspect a heater issue at your home or business, don’t delay a call to Guaranteed Plumbing & Heating, Inc. Their dedicated crew of plumbing and heating experts is always prepared to assist with a wide range of heater issues that might arise during the winter season.

Whether the heating issue is related to a residential heater system or it involves a commercial heating system, Guaranteed Plumbing & Heating System, Inc. knows exactly what to do. By understanding a few of the common signs, you’ll be able to troubleshoot whatever issue plagues your particular heater system.

One of the most common and fixable heater issues that people run into is simply lack of maintenance. When life gets hectic you might forget to schedule regular maintenance and inspections, but these are important to guarantee properly functioning heater systems.  Unexpected problems such as breakdowns and malfunctions can be avoided with a little bit of routine care.

Other common heating issues include dirty or clogged filters. When your heater’s air filter is clogged with debris, the entire systems run less than optimally. In some cases, the light switch can even be damaged which will interfere with your heater’s fan.

Many people run into problems with their pilot light. Ignition issues are also common. Trouble with both the pilot light and the ignition can be resolved through the help of Guaranteed Plumbing & Heating, Inc.
