Heating Repair and Useful Initial Knowledge
If you need furnace repair, it’s a good idea to be knowledgeable about your home furnace before the contractor arrives. You certainly don’t have to be experts on the subject, but contractors will almost always ask residents some questions related to their furnaces, and it helps to have answers. These contractors should be able to work well enough and figure things out on their own without the answers to those questions in most cases, but it still makes a difference when you are able to offer some information about your household’s furnace.
Next time you need furnace repair, impress your contractor by knowing these important facts:
- There are different types of furnaces: Furnaces are often defined according to the exact fuel that they use. Some houses have oil heating systems. Other furnaces primarily use natural gas or propane as fuel. Many modern furnaces use natural gas. However, people who have newer houses shouldn’t just assume that their systems use natural gas.
- The age of the furnace matters: Some contractors will be able to estimate the age of a given furnace based on what kind of furnace it is, but this still won’t tell them the furnace’s exact age. Even a few years can make a difference when it comes to the age of a furnace.
- The performance of the furnace over an extended period of time needs to be taken into account: The contractor will ask questions about when the problems with the furnace started. Try to describe how the problems began, when they began, and exactly what happened. If the contractor knows about how well the furnace has performed over the course of several months or years and what happened during that time period, it should be even easier for them to get a sense of the problem.

Signs You Need Heating Repair
Many property owners are unaware of the warning signs that their heater is struggling. However, knowing the symptoms of a problem with your heating system can help you stay on top of small issues before they result in expensive repairs or a full replacement. If you notice any of the below symptoms, call our experienced heater repair service technicians for help. We will guide you throughout the repair process and will even be there for you after repairs are completed to answer any questions that arise.
Symptoms of a problem requiring heating repair:
- Limited or no heat is coming from your vents - This could be the result of ducts that need repair or a blower fan on the fritz.
- Strange smells are coming from your vents - Depending on the season this is usually coming from either your ductwork or your HVAC unit.
- Your blower runs constantly - If even after your turn off your heating unit the blower fan is still running or your pilot light is still lit then give us a call.
- Your furnace is making strange sounds - By now you should have a good idea of what your heating sounds like. If you notice any new sounds that are audible from the next room then call in our Gainesville heating repair specialists.
- Your furnace comes on briefly but then shuts off - This could mean that you need heating repair, but it could be the beginning of the end for your unit as well.
- You smell gas, or the carbon monoxide detector goes off - If you smell rotten eggs then you have a gas leak and should leave the premises after turning off your gas and opening your windows.
- There are hot and cold spots in your home - Inconsistent heating often happens as a result of blocked air vents or ductwork that needs repair.
- There has been an unexplained increase in your energy bills - If the utility that powers your heating has a bill that's skyrocketing, then call in our heating repair experts because your unit isn't at 100%.
