So you turned the heater on in your Las Vegas home only to find it is blowing cool air, or even worse, not working at all. Well, don’t panic too soon. There are several steps you can take before having to call in a professional service like AC Las Vegas.
Check Your Thermostat
It sounds like a no brainer, but it is very easy to forget to properly set your thermostat for winter. If your heater is not working properly, make sure the thermostat is set to “heat” instead of “cool.” Once that’s done, make sure you have it set to the desired temperature. If it starts working, you just saved yourself a call to the repairman.
Change Your Air Filters
Perhaps your thermostat is set correctly, but not enough warm air is flowing through your home. You could have a clogged air filter. This is a common Las Vegas heating problem, because our desert environment tends to create a large amount of dust. When the filter becomes clogged with dust, pet hair and other particles, it will greatly restrict airflow.
Most hardware stores will sell the size you need. If you are unsure, just pull the old one out and take it to the store with you. It won’t hurt to buy a couple extra filters while you are there to save yourself a trip to the store down the road.
Still Not Working?
If the above-mentioned problems did not fix your issue, it may be time to call in a professional. At AC Las Vegas, our licensed and bonded professionals can help determine exactly what is wrong with your heater and the best way to go about having it repaired.
