What’s Up with Your Heater?

inside-of-a-heat-exchangerSomething fishy is going on with your home’s heater. You’re warm, but the heating that you’re trying to achieve isn’t really coming easily to you. It has in the past, but this year has been more difficult. You’ve taken a step back and now you’re asking yourself: “What in the world is going on with my heater in Staten Island, NY?”

We’re going to help you get to the bottom of it today. We’re pretty early on in the heating season. It’s going to be cold enough to run your heater here for the next several months. You need to think ahead about your comfort and address any issues you have bubbling up underneath the surface now. Our heating technicians can perform everything you’re looking for.

Common Heating Problems

Let’s get to the bottom of what’s going on with your heater:

1. Loss of Heat

This is one of the subtler heating problems. You’re sure to notice if your heater completely stops working, but a slight drop-off in heat might not be a standout issue. Before you leap to a heating problem, make sure that your thermostat is in great shape. If something is wrong here, then your heater is sure to have trouble.

If there’s no clear cause of a loss of heat, and you’re certain that you’re not as toasty as you used to be, then you need to schedule an appointment with us.

2. Low Airflow

If you’re running your heater more often or noticing that you’re cranking up your heater higher than ever, then you need to repair the unit. Low airflow only gets worse as time goes by. The problems will become more extreme with time and you’ll have more trouble getting and staying warm at home.

3. Dry Air

Have you noticed that your hair is a little dry lately? You pull your sweater over your head and your hair stands up on end because of the static. Your skin feels tight and flaky and you’re noticing lines in your skin that you’ve never noticed before. Your hair feels like the end of a broom too. These are all symptoms of a dry home keeping your body dry. Your heater is likely the culprit.

4. Hot and Cold Spots

Your kitchen and living room are scorching hot in a flash when you turn on your heater. Your bedroom though? It couldn’t be colder. You’re turning the other rooms in your home into a complete sauna just trying to get your bedroom to a temperature that barely passes as comfortable. It’s an issue that needs prompt repair.

5. Inaccurate Thermostat

Your thermostat reading is so off. Every time you walk up to the thermostat you balk because the reading is inaccurate. You find yourself wondering what temperature it could possibly be reading because it’s nowhere in your home.

An inaccurate thermostat reading isn’t just a minor annoyance. It’s a problem because it’s going to create issues with you trying to run your heater. Thermostat troubles need to be handled early on.
