What’s Going On With My Heater?
Heaters work hard to keep us warm through the cold winter months. When properly maintained, some equipment can last up to 25 years. Heaters will, however, still require the occasional repair. The most common heater repairs we fix include
Electric Ignition or Pilot Light Problems - When there is a problem with the thermocouple or pilot light ignition a heater cannot turn on the warming agent.
Faulty Thermostat - If the thermostat is broken, a heater cannot heat a home properly.
Mechanical Problems - Can be caused by normal wear and tear or a faulty part, mechanical problems are usually indicated by strange noises, airflow reductions or even overheating.
Blower Is Always Running - This could mean the limit switch has malfunctioned.
Leaking & Dripping - For boilers that leak, depending on the location of the leak it could be a minor fix or major repair.

According to our analysis, the average cost of a furnace repair is between $350 and $525. However, a variety of factors affect that figure. For instance, most of the furnaces we've serviced in recent years have been around 10 years old or less. As systems age, you can anticipate that their problems will become more serious. As a result, you should budget more for repairs. In fact, it's not uncommon for older or poorly maintained furnaces to need repairs costing between $1,000 and $2,000 to be made.
Check the thermostat first. The thermostat ought to be set at a level that activates the furnace. Give it a minute to come on and heat up after you've set the temperature just right. Check the wires leading back to the furnace for breaks if your thermostat doesn't seem to be working. If you do discover a wire break, cut the power and join it back together with electrical tape. Maybe the battery needs to be changed also.
Next, verify that the gas is on. Similar to the thermostat, it's easy for the valve to get turned. Follow the gas line back to the meter from the furnace to verify this. If a handle is present, turn it so that it is parallel to the gas pipe. Most older boilers and furnaces have a pilot light. Remove the front panel and the burner cover if yours has a pilot light to see if it's lit.
A dirty flame sensor and an unclean air filter are two of the most frequent causes of central heating problems in homes. Replace the air filter every one to two months and use a steel wool pad to clean the flame sensor. Future issues will be less likely as a result.
