Heating Repair in San Gabriel Valley, CA and Surrounding Areas
It can be hard to move around in the winter. Some days all you really want to do is curl up under the sheets so that you don’t have to deal with the bitter chill. Having a whole house heater can help warm things up. It’s easier to get up in the morning and do your regular routines. But what if your heater starts acting up? Here are two of the most common issues with this type of system along with the usual heating repair solutions:
Increased Fuel Consumption
If you have been using your heater for a while, then you have probably developed a feel for its typical consumption rates with normal usage. A sudden upward spike is a definite red flag. This can be caused by a number of things such as the development of a leak. The fuel tank may be damaged causing fuel to gush out which creates a dangerous situation. There might also be a problem with the air circulation or the unit itself that is lowering efficiency.
If you turned the heater on yet it still feels cold in the room, then check the system to see whether you placed the right settings. This might be due to a broken thermostat, a mismatched heater, or a furnace issue. It is best to call a technician so that the problem can be diagnosed correctly. Undersized heaters will not be able to provide adequate warmth especially in the coldest days of the season.
