Do You Have A Heating Emergency?
Most HVAC experts recommend turning on the heater when the ambient temperature dips below 64 degrees Fahrenheit and setting the thermostat between 66 and 72 degrees. Babies, small children, and the elderly are particularly vulnerable to the cold and may require an even warmer setting.
If your furnace or other heater isn’t working correctly, and you know it will get below the low 60s inside, you may have a heating emergency. These might be the signs its time to give us a call.
- Heating System Won’t Kick On At All
- Pilot Light Won’t Light
- Blower Won’t Start Or Won’t Stay On
- Unusual Smell Coming From Heating Duct
- Heating System Makes Strange Noises
- Cold Air Blows Out Of Vents
Heating System Won’t Turn On At All
Whether you have a furnace, mini-split, or heat pump, the worst-case scenario is when your heater won’t kick on. Check if the circuit breaker tripped, and ensure your thermostat has batteries. If you have a gas system, check the pilot light.
If you can’t troubleshoot the problem independently, one of our emergency repair technicians can figure out what’s wrong.
The Pilot Light Won’t Light
If your pilot light doesn’t light, here are a few tips before you call us. If you can access it, try checking the thermocouple; it might be dirty. If cleaning doesn’t help, an HVAC service tech may need to replace the thermocouple or another component.
Air Blower Won’t Start Or Won’t Stay On
If your air blower won’t start or turn on at all, you may need to change a filter or clean the vents. If that’s not the problem, you may need to replace the motor relay. A heating repair company can inspect the motor and let you know if a fix or complete replacement is necessary.
Unusual Smell Coming From Heating Duct
The first time you turn on your heater after a long summer break, you may smell a slight, burnt odor, usually caused by dust buildup. If this doesn’t clear up after an hour, or you suddenly smell burning plastic or gas after the heater has already been used, you should turn it off and call emergency service.
You could have worn-out components or even melting wire insulation caused by an electrical problem, which could be a fire hazard.
Heating System Makes Strange Noises
Your furnace or other heating systems could be making strange sounds for many reasons. The fuel ignition could malfunction; you could have loose ducts, clogged air filters, a misaligned or broken blower fan, or another broken part.
In freezing weather, this warrants calling for emergency heating repairs.
Cold Air Blows Out Of Vents
Why is your heater blowing cold and not hot? You could have a failed heating element, or the burner could have died. You could also have problems with your ducts. In any case, you need to have your system serviced.
