Pensacola Heater Repair

If you look at a chart of temperatures throughout the year in Pensacola, FL, it’s easy to focus on the large hill of hot weather in the middle of the year, with average temperatures in the 90s. But you should also pay attention to the edges of the charts, where daily lows will start to sink into the 40s. You may worry about staying cool during the summer, but you cannot afford to ignore the need to have a working home heating system during the winter. A malfunctioning furnace, heat pump, or any other type of heater can lead to some miserable stretches.

When you depend on our expert NATE-certified technicians, you can rest easy knowing that you’ll have your indoor warmth restored fast, no matter what problem is troubling your heating system.

Signs It’s Time for Heater Repair

When a furnace refuses to turn on, or a heat pump won’t change from cooling mode to heating mode, it’s obvious that you need to place a call for repairs. But other repair issues aren’t as clear. Watch for some of these warning signs that you need to act sooner rather than later with repairing a heater:

  • A spike in energy bills: You should have a good idea how much you pay during the winter to operate the heater. But if those costs make a sudden rise, and you can’t account for it because of additional use, it probably means that the heater is suffering from a malfunction.
  • Strange noises from the heater: Modern heating systems are designed to run as silently as possible, and you’re accustomed to the subdued sounds that your heater makes when operating. If a loud, unusual noise interrupts this—such as grinding, hissing, or clicking—it almost always indicates a major repair need.
  • Cold spots in rooms: When a heating system begins to fail, one of the first warnings is that it will start struggling to keep certain rooms warm. When you detect cold spots in some of the rooms in your house (usually the ones the farthest away from where the heater is located), it’s time to call for a repair technician.
  • The air in your home appears hazy: You may blame dust or other pollutants for the bad quality of the air in your home but if this continues even after cleaning, then you should place the blame squarely on your heater. When a furnace is not working as it should, you or your kids might start showing signs of respiratory illness, incessant coughing, or asthma. This may be because your heater could be circulating contaminants, mildew, or other allergens throughout your home. If this is what you are experiencing, then try switching out your filter and see if that helps. If the problem persists, then your Lee Heating & Cooling gas heater repair service technician will repair your heater for you. Give us a call today.
  • The flame in your pilot light is not blue: When your furnace is working properly, the pilot light should be blue. If you look at the flame and it is mostly yellow, orange, purple, red, or green, then there is a problem. Colors other than blue are a sign that there are too many condensates such as rust or tar that will effectively reduce the efficiency of your furnace and may even be letting harmful pollutants move through the air of your home.
  • You need to keep on cranking the heat up: If you suddenly notice the need to constantly move the heat up way beyond what is reasonable and you still feel cold, there is no doubt that your system is not working as it should. If this is happening to you, call us right away to have your heater repaired. You don’t want to see your bills going up month after month just to be halfway pleased with the heat you are getting. Call us to get your heater fixed and start enjoying the comfort of a warm day at home again.
  • You are getting very short cycles: If you notice that the heater goes on, runs for a very short time, turns off, and then starts up again very quickly, then your heater is giving you what we refer to as short-cycling. This is a clear sign of a problem within your heating system. Don’t wait until this problem ends up damaging your heater completely. Give us a call today and let us have a look so that we can diagnose the problem and then fix it.

It Takes Professionals to Handle Heating Repairs

But why call on HVAC technicians at all? Aren’t there heating repairs you can do yourself, or which a general "handyman" or amateur might handle? The simple answer is, no. For one thing, if you have a gas furnace (the most common type of home heater) then it is probably illegal in your jurisdiction for anyone except a licensed professional to work on it. For another, modern heating systems are too complex for people without special training and equipment to handle correctly. Poor repair work will lead to an inefficient heater, and you will end up losing money rather than saving it. You need repairs done fast and done right, so only call on experienced HVAC professionals for the work. Our team of highly trained technicians will take care of the gas heater repair and have you enjoying the warmth of your heater in no time.

Benefits of Regular Heater Maintenance

You rely on your heating system to provide comfort to you and your loved ones throughout the winter season. You also want it to start working the moment the temperatures drop and you turn it on for the first time since last year. That is why it is important to carry out preventive maintenance on your heater to avoid unpleasant surprises when the days turn cold. There are several important benefits to performing regular heater maintenance, among them:

Immediate comfort

Starting the winter with a malfunctioning heating system means you risk not having heat for some days or more, depending on when you get a technician to come to your home and whether they tell you that your system can be fixed or needs to be replaced. Don’t fall into this situation and perform regular heater maintenance. Call us today to schedule it.

Extending the Lifespan of Your Equipment

Running a clean heater that has been lubricated and is in good repair means that the air can flow freely and unimpeded. There is less stress placed on the system and it can run longer, providing you with optimum performance.

Lower Repair Costs

If minor issues crop up, they can be detected during regular maintenance before they turn into something major that can lead to higher repair costs, and even to a need for a full system replacement.

Higher Safety

When your heater is well maintained, the amount of carbon monoxide that it will produce will be minimal and will be easily carried away by the venting system. Your technician will inspect the way the burner is working, the state of your gas connections, and all other parts to make sure they are working as they should be. If needed, they will carry out a gas heater repair.

Energy Savings

Turning on a heating system that is dirty or has not received the needed maintenance will make it work harder to raise the temperature of your home. By testing the airflow, checking all connections, inspecting all ductwork, tightening and lubricating parts as needed, and testing the calibration of your thermostat regularly, you will not only help your unit run better but may prevent gas heater repairs.
