Why Is Your Heating System Not Working?
Many things can bring about the need for a heat pump repair or repairs to a furnace. A homeowner may call because they hear the unit making strange noises or notice the home no longer heats evenly. At times, skyrocketing energy bills lead to a customer reaching out.
However, they may notice a problem that is more serious. For example, they see water pooling around the furnace, which is a sign they have a cracked heat exchanger. This is dangerous because deadly carbon monoxide may make its way into the home.
Rust or corrosion on a furnace is also a cause of concern. It could suggest a leak, which may also allow deadly fumes to accumulate in the home.
The problem with central heating may not be this extreme. It could be nothing more than dirty filters interfering with proper airflow. A lack of power to the unit could lead to it not functioning, or it might be a clogged drain line or cracked condensate drain pan. The heat pump may lack the refrigerant needed to operate correctly.
Grinding and scraping noises from a furnace suggest the ball bearings are worn out. A squealing noise, in contrast, is usually a sign of a loose belt. Pilot light and ignition problems lead to many service calls, as well.
Regardless of what the unit is doing, call S.O.S. Heating and Cooling. We’ll determine what the problem is and make the necessary repairs.
Heat Pump System Vs. Furnace
Homeowners often ask what the difference is between a heat pump and a furnace. These units have different purposes that must be understood to determine what is wrong with the unit and how best to fix it.
Heat pumps function to heat and cool the home by transferring heat from one location to another. During the winter, the unit heats air and distributes it throughout the home. In the summer months, it cools air and disperses it to all parts of the residence.
A furnace, in contrast, heats the home when it is cold outside. As with a heat pump, this unit is connected to ductwork to distribute warm air throughout the home. However, this type of unit doesn’t cool the home during the summer months. A separate air conditioning unit is needed for that purpose.
