1. COILS AND PIPES FREEZE
Water in coils and pipelines might freeze in cold weather. The house becomes chilly and uncomfortable as a result of the heating system being unable to function properly. Even worse, the frozen water may expand, bursting the coil or pipe. That urgent fix is quite pricey. Call an HVAC specialist right away if you think you may have frozen water that is keeping your heating system from working. While you wait for the repairman, you should shut off the water supply.
2. SOME ROOMS ARE COLDER THAN OTHERS
In your home, you discover that certain areas are noticeably colder than others. It’s possible that the heating system isn’t operating properly. An HVAC expert can help you identify the issue. The heating system’s blower motor could not be operating properly. The system may be unable to heat effectively due to a dirty air filter. It might not even be the heating system. You can have air leaks around your windows and doors that allow chilly air to enter.
3. AIR FILTERS GET DIRTY
You need a fresh air filter in place if you heat with a forced-air furnace or heat pump. The air filter aids in preventing dust from entering the heating system, which keeps it operating effectively. Air flow is restricted when the filter is clogged. The heating system has to work harder as a result. As a result, the system overheats and shuts down too soon. At the very least once a month, check your filters. To maintain the air flowing freely, replace or clean them as necessary.
4. THERMOSTATS BREAK
Heating systems are controlled by thermostats. The heating system won’t function as planned if the thermostat isn’t operating correctly. It could be necessary to adjust and clean the thermostat. Or perhaps a replacement is required. A programmable thermostat is a wonderful choice if you need to replace your current one.
5. PILOT LIGHT WON’T IGNITE
A pilot light is necessary for gas or propane-powered heating systems to ignite correctly. Some older systems turn on the pilot light when the system starts, while others have a pilot light that runs continuously. The flame sensor may be unclean or broken if the pilot light won’t light. If necessary, a heating expert can clean or replace it.
The first thing you should do if you have any of these issues is to contact an HVAC expert. Call the experts at the Command Service Center immediately. We are the HVAC specialists who can restart the heating system.
