What to Know About Heater Repairs: The 5 Most Common Heating Problems
As the days get chilly, having a broken heating is definitely not ideal. If your heating system doesn't appear to work correctly, this would be the immediate factor to understand if you need a heating repair.
Your heating system should maintain a comfortable temperature inside your home. If it blows too much but doesn't maintain the temperature, you're wasting energy (and money) while suffering in a cold house. You could also risk your health from carbon monoxide poisoning or breathing in dirty air from a broken furnace.
Keep your eye on your furnace to identify these five common issues
1. Heating System Doesn't Ignite
Your heating unit won't blow warm air without a "lit" pilot burner. While it is a tiny flame, the pilot burner has the important role of lighting the gas from the burner to generate warm air.
If you realize your heating system is not igniting, approach it with caution to check the pilot lit. Sometimes, relighting it (with caution) will solve the problem. In other circumstances, you may have more serious issues that need remediation.
Start with a smell test. If you smell gas, do not try to relight the pilot fire. Call your local Pearland heating professional.
2. Heater Does Not Blow Warm Air
You know if your furnace is not working, if you turn it on and warm air does not blow. This might be an issue with the pilot burner. In addition, you may have a blocked filter or a wrong thermostat setting.
Ensure that your thermostat is set to "heat," and the temperature level is high enough to activate the heating system. Check the air filter. You will want to change it if the filter is old or dirty.
If those steps do not set off warmed air when your heating system comes on, it's time to call a Pearland home heating professional.
3. Blower is not Functional
If you listen closely to your furnace "when it is on", and you do not hear air blowing through the vents, you may have an issue. Do the following test to troubleshoot
- Check the breaker to ensure the heater has power
- Readjust the thermostat temperature level
- Your thermostat fan should be set
If the fan setup does not trigger the blower, you may require repair work for the blower motor.
4. Furnace Cycles on and off
A clogged filter could be the culprit for a furnace that repeatedly cycles on and off. Replace the filter and adjust the thermostat setting to make sure the temperature is not too high. Call your Pearland heating professionals if the furnace continues to cycle off and on rapidly.
5. Temperature Is Inconsistent
Is one room colder than the others? Check the vents. A closed or blocked vent won't allow the furnace to circulate air effectively through your home.

"Had them install 3 faucets. Tech (Dustin) was on time and professional Nice job, clean and neat. Had tiny problem, called and he was here right away. Great and will use them again"
EMANUEL REYES IS GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Detailed orientated and honest inspection. Chad took his time and explained everything that was going on very well. The service fee was fair for the small issues he fixed, and he was able to make a referral for water restoration for us, I would use his service again and plan to when our water heater goes out.
Outstanding work and very professional!!!
Ray did great.
Thanks for getting here so quickly and finding the issue. Also thanks for suggesting the locking caps - Hopefully this will prevent theft of the freon.
"Great service ,plumber was very good and did a great job .very happy"
1-800 Plumber + Air and Electric has done several jobs for me. They are professional and respectful. Shawn Harvey has been great to work with. Would highly recommend!
This was THE most painless repair experience! We had a leak in a pipe behind our water heater, spewing water out into space, ugh. Joe and his apprentice, Dan, were here in about an hour or so. They were both so very friendly from the moment they showed up at the front door! After they determined the problem, we discussed the needed repair, and then they began to replace the pipe(s) behind the water heater. This was pretty much an all-day job and I can honestly say it was no problem having them in my home. They were not only professional and courteous employees; they were two very kind individuals, who were also comfortable and friendly around my crazy dogs! I have had nothing but the finest experiences with this company and cannot recommend them highly enough! They are the best!
Swayze did a great job and was very courteous polite, and knowledgeable .
