Your Emergency is our Emergency
As the oft-repeated statement goes, "Out of sight, out of mind." You will never know the importance of emergency furnace repair until you need one. That's why if your furnace is malfunctioning, schedule an appointment with professional technicians so they can discern what the problem is. These are the possible reasons to consider an emergency furnace repair.
1. Strange Noises Coming From The Furnace
It's normal for cooling and heating systems to make odd noises, but they shouldn't be loud, repetitive, and frequent. You will need to call a specialist like 1-800-Plumber +Air of Richmond to deal with the problem. The noise that your furnace produces may vary and they may suggest a specific problem.
Popping: A popping noise may be normal if it doesn't happen frequently. However, hearing a popping noise more often might indicate a serious problem such as a cracked heat exchanger, which can be dangerous as it can leak carbon monoxide.
Grinding: The components of your furnace require lubrication to prevent damage. A grinding noise from your furnace only means that the motor inside your furnace has been damaged.
Thumping: When the motor or blower wheel of your furnace becomes loose, the furnace produces thumping noise.
Rumbling: An indicator that a furnace has completed a cycle is when it goes silent. A rumbling noise after your furnace completes a cycle means that the fuel might still be burning. This issue might be taken care of immediately as it can be a fire and safety hazard.
2. Furnace Has Trouble Turning On
Before winter, it's imperative that you check your furnace to find out if it's properly working. If your furnace won't turn on, scheduling an emergency repair is necessary. Your furnace isn't working because of a power issue. Contact us so we can send a heating and cooling specialist to inspect and perform a furnace tune-up. Maintenance can extend the lifespan of your furnace, reduce the risk of repairs and even lower your monthly energy bills. You will also be avoiding emergency situations.
3. Overheating Furnace
A furnace that is working too hard will start to overheat over time. In most cases, the furnace turns itself off when overheating through its sensor, but if the sensor is broken, you can't tell when your furnace is overheating. There are many reasons furnaces overheat such as a blockage due to debris or dirty filters. An overheating furnace can be dangerous as it can lead to fire hazards and breakdown. Be sure to call 1-800-Plumber +Air of Richmond as soon as you find out about an overheating furnace.
4. Broken Thermostat
Thermostats need to be calibrated so they will function efficiently. Once they become disconnected or decalibrated, they will stop working. While it is easy to repair thermostats, this issue should be handled by an expert since it requires electrical work and recalibration.
5. Strange Odors
There are furnace odors that shouldn't be a cause for alarm, but there are also odors that you can't afford to ignore. If your furnace has a metallic scent, chemical smell, or sulfuric scent, you will need to call a professional like 1-800-Plumber +Air of Richmond right away to prevent serious issues.
Common Air Conditioning Problems
Taking care of your air conditioner is essential to prevent costly repairs. While it's normal for your AC to fail, especially if you've been using it for years, regular tune-ups and maintenance will extend its life. Here are the common AC problems you might encounter that will require the expert hands of an HVAC technician.
Not Blowing Air: The problem might be due to a dirty air filter that's blocking your unit's airflow. If your air filter is dirty, it can freeze up your unit's condenser, affecting its performance.
Not Turning On: If your AC isn't working, you need to replace the batteries if they're already dead, but if they are still in working condition, it might be the settings of your thermostat that's causing the problem.
Unit Freezing Up: An AC can freeze up because of low coolant levels, problems with the blower motor, insufficient airflow, and low outside temperature.
Refrigerant Leaks: Coolants that leak can result in a damaged compressor, high power consumption, uneven cooling, and coil freezing.
Common Heating Problems
Staying comfortable during winter requires an efficient furnace. These problems can plague your furnace so make sure to take proactive measures like scheduling maintenance with 1-800-Plumber +Air of Richmond.
Frequent Cycling: If your furnace cycles between the on and off modes, then it might be because of a clogged filter, incorrect thermostat setting, and improper airflow.
Pilot Control Issues: Your heating system won't heat a home if it has a faulty pilot or ignition.
Noisy Furnace: An unusual noise indicates a mechanical problem, a clogged burner, or airflow reduction.
Dirty Filters: A dirty air filter can reduce airflow, causing your furnace to work harder. A clogged filter can also damage the limit switch that controls the fan of your heating system.

Justin and Richard from electric cane. Did a superb job! Highly recommend always!
Positive: Professionalism , Punctuality , Quality New hot water heater installed same day as estimate. Very friendly and quick. Very thorough explaining everything.
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!
Joey and Moses came out to replace a waterline and were AWESOME!!! They answered my questions, where patient, friendly (respectful) and VERY professional! This my 2nd time using 1800 plumber and both visits were great! I look forward to continue using them!
So nice and professional.
