Late Season Heating Repairs Are Always Worth It!

Monday, March 4th, 2019

cold-manWe know, we know. We’re into March now.  Sure, the heater is making a strange sound. Sure, the heater is not putting out quite as much heat as you’d like it to. But, whatever—like we said, it’s March! Surely the issue can wait.

Well, no. Not really.

If you plan on waiting to schedule heating repairs in Asheville, NC, until next winter is upon us, we suggest that you reconsider.

Forced Air Heater? You Need Fresh Filters!

Monday, January 7th, 2019

man-with-filterHeat pumps and furnaces, both gas and electric, are what we call forced air heating systems. That simply means that they heat air and then use a fan and ductwork in order to distribute that heated air throughout the house. In addition to this shared method of heat distribution, forced air heaters share another trait in common—their use of air filters. Know what else they share in common? The fact that a dirty filter will cause them problems.

How big of a problem could a dirty air filter really cause? Well, keep reading. We’ve got a whole blog post about it, so that should give you a hint about how serious of an issue your dirty air filter can really be. Not only is it detrimental to your system’s performance, but it can actually lead to the need for heating repairs in Asheville, NC, as well. Don’t let something as simple to handle as a dirty air filter cause big problems for you!

Why Is My Heater Starting and Stopping So Much?

Monday, December 24th, 2018

cold-manOkay, so a heater that is starting and stopping is not really something to be worried about—provided that it is not starting and stopping very rapidly. Your heater, after all, should not be running nonstop. If it is, then there is a problem of some kind. It may even be too small for your home, meaning that it is running and running to produce a heating output that it really cannot achieve. If your heater starts up and runs very briefly before cycling back down, however, then it is short cycling.

This is a problem for a few different reasons. A heater that short cycles suffers a lot of wear and tear that it otherwise wouldn’t. That means it will degrade faster, shortening its lifespan and resulting in more frequent repair needs. It will also waste energy, as it uses more power to start a system up than it does to keep it running. Ultimately, you’ll likely be paying more for a weaker performance from your heater in Asheville, NC!
