Heating in Hartford is as much a part of our homes as the floors and walls. When winter comes and the fierce New England cold sets in, we need our heaters and furnaces to perform day in and day out. When problems arise, a qualified service technician can step in and instigate timely repairs. But it helps if you the homeowner understand what’s involved, and why you have problems with your heating in Hartford. A few common culprits are usually the answer.
In many cases, heating problems stem from overall neglect and lack of maintenance. We don’t usually think about our heaters until they break down, leaving them out of sight and out of mind for most of the year. Dirt and dust build up, parts wear out from lack of use and the quality of the heater slowly deteriorates over time. Small issues suddenly turn into bigger ones when a component fails, leaving you scrambling to get it fixed before the next cold wave hits.
You can help prevent that by scheduling a regular maintenance session every year in the fall, before the snows arrive. The technician can help correct those little problems, as well as cleaning the heater and identifying any areas in need of larger repairs. An ounce of prevention beats a pound of cure, as the saying goes, and a little maintenance can really help you prevent significant problems.
As for problems themselves, they usually tend to gravitate around three basic issues, each of which has multiple possible causes:
- The heater won’t start at all (possibly an electrical problem, or an issue with a core component overloading).
- The heater doesn’t blow hot air (a problem with the pilot light or burners, or a problem with the electrical coils if you’re using an electrical heater).
- The air flow is restricted (a blocked duct, a clogged air filter or possible a leak somewhere).
