No matter what kind of heating, ventilation, air-conditioning, or furnace system you might have, you can save a great deal of money and increase the comfort of your home by properly maintaining and upgrading your equipment.
Floor Heating Systems
One of the advantages of electric radiant floor heating systems is that after they are properly installed, they rarely stop operating because there are no moving parts involved and the system is enclosed and protected by your choice of flooring material. When heating systems do fail, it is almost always becase the system was not properly installed.
If your floor heating system stops working, the first sign is that part or all of your floor does not heat. Another problem you might see is that the ground fault indicator in your electrical panel will trip frequently, sometimes causing other electrical problems in your home.
Wall Heating Systems
Wall heating systems can be electrical, gas or hot-water based units mounted on the walls of your home. Gas wall heaters are the most efficient of these types and can be vented or unvented and supply enough heat to warm a small or medium-sized room with either propane or natural gas.
Broken wall heating systems can become dangerous because a wall heater that is not functioning properly could become a source of Carbon Monoxide (also know as CO), which is a colorless, odorless, and poisonous gas the results from the incomplete combustion of fuels.
When a wall furnace isn’t working properly, its often because the pilot light has gone out. It’s rare for a wall furnace to stop working when the pilot light is going, but when that happens it usually requires an expert to diagnose and begin repairing the unit immediately. Most gas wall furnaces problems not related to the pilot light are caused by valves, thermocouple components, a thermostat, and a gas orifice and the problems are not always easy to diagnose.
When one isn’t working properly, the cause is most often related to the igniter, which is usually a standing pilot light. It’s rare for a heater to malfunction if the pilot is working properly, but it happens. That’s usually related to a malfunction of the thermostat.
Forced Air Furnace Systems
A forced air furnace system is a heating system that distributes heat throughout your home using air ducts designed to efficiently disperse warm air throughout your house. Heated air travels through the ducts in your walls, ceiling, or floors and is expelled through vents into different rooms or your home to maintain a constant temperature. The air is heated using a range of different heating systems including gas furnaces, electric furnaces heat pumps or hydronic coils. These units are coupled with a fan or blower which distributes the heated air throughout your home.
When diagnosing a problem with a forced air furnace system, the first thing to check is your thermostat to make sure it is working properly. Also be sure that the air flow is not being blocked by a clogged filter. You should regularly replace your air filter with any heating system or furnace you own.
If your forced air furnace is not distributing air, it’s possible that you may need to replace a faulty blower belt. Similarly, if it is not running at all, a motor replacement may be in order. Regardless of your forced are furnace problem, call Carter Services, we can help!
