How to Properly Maintain a Heater

Chances are, you only use your heater for the cold parts of the year (unless you find warmer indoor temperatures comfortable). Because it isn’t turned on and utilized throughout the year, people often fail to maintain the unit.

Here are a few of the best tips to keep your heater running all winter long:

  • Flames – If your heater uses a pilot light, it should be an even blue color. If it is not, there is definitely a ventilation problem.
  • Change the filter – Much like your air conditioning unit, your heater needs a clean filter to function.
  • Inspect the flue pipe – Check for holes that may leak carbon monoxide, especially around the intersection of the pipe and furnace.
  • Clean your floor vents – Remove registers and vacuum out the ducts. This increases efficiency and allows for easier breathing.

There are a number of ways to maintain and prepare your furnace for the winter, the easiest of which is simply calling us for heater maintenance. We will inspect, lubricate, change, and take care of your entire system, ensuring it is ready for the winter.

If you wake up in the middle of the night to a freezing cold house, you might bundle up and fall back asleep.

Fortunately, you can count on Pat Plumbing, Heating and Air for prompt, reliable heater repairs. We can handle all issues regardless of how simple or complex they may seem.

Here are a few of the most common heater repairs we make:

What are the Signs You Need Heater Repair?

If you're experiencing issues with your heating system, it's important to be aware of signs that indicate you may need heater repair. Here are some common signs:

  • No Heat: This is the most obvious sign. If your heater is not producing any heat, there's likely a problem with the system that needs to be addressed.
  • Insufficient Heat: If your heater is running, but the produced heat is not sufficient to warm your space, there may be issues with the thermostat, heating elements, or other components.
  • Strange Noises: Unusual noises such as banging, clanking, or squealing can be indicators of mechanical problems within the heating system. These noises may suggest issues with the blower motor, belts, or other components.
  • Odd Smells: Strange or unpleasant odors when the heater is running could be a sign of a variety of issues, including a dirty air filter, problems with the electrical components, or even a gas leak (in the case of gas heaters).
  • Frequent Cycling: If your heater is turning on and off more frequently than usual, it may be a sign of an issue with the thermostat, a clogged filter, or an issue with the airflow.
  • High Energy Bills: A sudden increase in your energy bills without a corresponding increase in usage could be indicative of an inefficient heating system. This might be due to a malfunctioning component or a lack of maintenance.
  • Uneven Heating: If certain areas of your home are significantly colder than others, it could be a sign of duct problems, issues with the thermostat, or other issues that affect the distribution of heat.
  • Pilot Light Issues (for gas heaters): If you have a gas heater and the pilot light is frequently going out or has changed color, it could indicate a problem with the thermocouple, gas valve, or other components.
  • Increased Dust and Dry Air: A malfunctioning heater may produce more dust or dry air, leading to discomfort and potential respiratory issues.

If you notice any of these signs, it's important to address them promptly to prevent further damage and ensure the efficient operation of your heating system. 

Consider consulting with a professional HVAC technician to diagnose and repair the issues. 

Regular maintenance can also help prevent many of these problems from occurring in the first place.
