Now that we are well into the last official month of fall, chances are you have already been using your furnace. But, is your furnace or heating system truly ready for the winter ahead? Let Abner Boiler & Heating Company help you make sure that your heating system is ready to go to avoid any potential problems. Here are five common issues that can occur with heating systems during the winter months.
1. Carbon Monoxide Leaks
Anything that burns fuel in order to work, such as a boiler or furnace, produces carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide leaks are most common in furnaces that are at least 10 years old and can be very difficult to detect. There are always things that could go wrong that would prevent your heating system from properly venting this gas out of your home. It’s a good idea to have your furnace or boiler inspected to make sure it’s safely sending the carbon monoxide out of your home as it should be.
2. Faulty Pilot LightA furnace will simply not run without a lit pilot light, and there are various possible issues with your heating system that could cause your pilot light to keep going out. Let us help you get to the bottom of the issue and fix the reason your pilot light isn’t working. No matter the age, make, or model of your unit, we can service or repair it. You can trust our diagnostic sleuthing skills!
3. Heat CyclingHeat cycling is when your heater is turning on and off more often than usual. It may still feel as though you are getting enough heat, but this lowers your system’s efficiency while increasing your utility bills. You may be experiencing heat cycling due to a dirty filter or a broken thermostat. The technicians at Abner Boiler are available to troubleshoot and repair any issues you have.
4. Inconsistent Temperature
Have you noticed that the rooms in your house seem to vary in temperature when your furnace is running? It may be due to dirty filters, coils, air ducts, or some other issue. Our trained technicians can do anything from simple tune-ups to complex HVAC repair work. A regular service check can catch small problems before they turn into major issues that lead to breakdowns.
5. Thermostat IssuesIf your furnace won’t turn on or continues running without turning off, then you might have an issue with your thermostat. You may also notice that the temperature in your room does not match the temperature that’s set on your thermostat. If you suspect that it may be broken for one of these reasons or any others, then let us check it out for you.
