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.

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.

Very professional and knowledgeable. The office staff communicated well and were helpful and courteous. We had a major plumbing job done. The cost for all they did was reasonable. The service pro tech, Emanuel Reyes did a great job! We will definitely recommend 1-800 plumber of Pearland,

Wanda N.

This was my first time with 1-800-Plumber Air of Pearland. I called with a minor issue with the dishwasher drain hose and asked that a tech be dispatched on Saturday so that I could be home from work. Chad was scheduled between 8am & 10am today (Sat) and arrived just before 9am. Chad was very knowledgeable and explained to me the entire process. He also answered my many many questions about what he was doing as he was doing it. I'm a smart guy but know very little about plumbing. I felt very comfortable with Chad doing the repair. The long and the short of it, 1-800-Plumber Air of Pearland has a new longtime customer and I will request that Chad be sent if possible the next time I have a plumbing issue.

Fine young man and as far as I am concerned he can be his permanent tech. He was very polite and he was very pleased with him and will be calling us again to work with Manolo. Manolo needs a pat on the back and he did a good job.

I had Kyle U as my plumbing tech. He did a great job and worked really hard to get to the bottom of things (like roots). He was also polite and honest.
