Most Common Easton Heating Repairs

Troubleshooting your heating system can be difficult. The trick is to pin point the exact cause of all your recent difficulties with your heating system. This can be hard because there are several different things that can go wrong with your heating system.

Every heating system is different, an important step in determining whether or not you need heating repairs is knowing what type of heating system you have, and now it works.

Some of the most common heating systems include:

  • Gas Furnaces
  • Electric Furnaces
  • Central Heating
  • Boiler
  • Heat Pump

However, no matter what type of heating system you have in your home, there are some common Easton heating repairs that every heating system runs into at some point or another. Some of the most common heating repairs include the following.

Lack of Maintenance

No matter what type of heavy piece of machinery you are working with, you have to provide proper maintenance. You wouldn't allow your car to be driven for long when it is overdue for an oil change. The same goes for your heating system. Â Your heating system requires regular maintenance that includes:

  • Cleaning your burners
  • Changing you air filter
  • Cleaning your air ducts
  • Inspecting the main system for signs of malfunctions

We recommend having your heating system proper maintenance at least twice a year to guarantee that all parts of your system are working correctly.

Regular Wear & Tear

The heating system in your Easton home is used more frequently in the winter months. There are some days when your heater will run all day and all night, and that's okay. This is why you have a heater. However, you have to be aware that regular usage will lead to common malfunctions in your system.

The more you use your heating system, the higher chance you have for a malfunction. Wear and tear on essential parts of your system such as belts and bearings can cause need for major heating repairs.

Clogged Filters

Just like with your air conditioning system, the filter in your heating and cooling system affects the function of your heater. To ensure that your heater stays functioning correctly you should change out your air filter regularly throughout the entire year. How often to change your air filters can depend on several different factors:

  • The type of air filter you are using
  • The air quality of your home and what level you want your air quality to be at
  • If you have pets
  • The occupancy of your home
  • The level of air pollution and construction around the home

Pilot Light or Ignition Control Issues

If you have a gas heater or furnace, it is able to provide you with hot air due to your pilot light. Other systems use a similar electronic version known as an ignition control. Â It is very common to have the pilot light go out in your heating system. Â This can cause your home to go without heat.
