No one wants to be stuck with a broken heater over the winter, even here in Las Vegas. If you do find yourself in this situation, there are a few things you can do to get the heating repair you need without draining your bank account.
Common Heater Problems
There are a few common problems we tend to see when our customers call us for heating repair in Las Vegas. The key to finding out exactly what is wrong with your unit is to call a certified professional for help.
Excessive Wear and Tear
Normal wear and tear will take its toll on your heating unit over time. If yours is more than ten years old, it might be time to consider a replacement. Repairing problems piece by piece will turn into a costly endeavor over time. The smart investment might just be replacement.
Not Well Maintained
Our certified professionals often end up having to perform heating repair because a unit was not properly maintained. It is of vital importance to have your unit serviced and inspected periodically to ensure it is in good working order. We recommend once a season.
Bad Air Flow
Improper heating may also be the result of bad airflow. You should be changing the air filter of your unit every one to three months, depending on the type of filter you have. Most hardware stores will carry a size you need.
Once filters become caked with dust and other debris, it will reduce airflow. Failing to replace your filter when it is dirty may also lead to larger problems, as the dust covers coils and gets into the ductwork of your home. Replacing the air filter is a great way to keep larger issues at bay.
Thermostat Not Working
It is also possible that your thermostat is not working properly. It could be that the thermostat itself needs to be replaced, or the wiring redone. Before you call in a service provider however, it is important to ensure you have it set correctly. It is not uncommon for people to forget to switch the thermostat from “cool” to “heat” when winter rolls around.
