Common Central Heater Repairs
Heating systems fail for a variety of reasons. Sometimes your heater will tell you that it’s about to fail. Some of these indicators include not being able to heat your home like it used to, unable to get the temperature up to what is comfortable for you, inconsistent temperatures in different areas of your home, strange or loud noises.
Anytime you feel that your heater unit is not working properly, you should give us a call so that we can send a trained technician to inspect your system. Many times we can find a problem and fix it before it becomes a major issue or leads to complete system failure.
There are several reasons why your pilot light may not stay on or goes out. Even though re-lighting your heater pilot light can be DIY, it may be a good idea to get a trained technician to look at it.
One of the easiest things you can do at home to keep your heater working properly is routinely change the air filter. If you have severely clogged filters, it can affect how well your system warms your home. Prolonged use with a clogged filter can damage your system.
A heat exchanger does exactly what it sounds like. Air gets passed over tubes in the exchanger which warms the air that goes out into your home. Over time and with neglect, the heat exchanger may crack needing replacement.
A limit switch detects how hot your furnace is getting and shuts it down in case it reaches certain “limits” hence the name. A malfunctioning limit switch can result in damage to your furnace as well as your home.
Sometimes your furnace will be running just fine but the thermostat which is the “brains” of the HVAC system is malfunctioning and sending the wrong messages to your heater. A Majestic AC technicians can find what wrong and fix or replace it.

Heater Preventative Maintenance
There are a couple things you can do to keep down the repairs needed as well as prolong the life of your furnace. First, keep you filters clean by replacing them routinely. How often depends on the type of filter you have as well as your lifestyle such as pets, smoking, etc.
Secondly, get your furnace checked and tuned-up each fall BEFORE first using the system. An HVAC technician will perform a safety check, lubricate motors and basically inspect the whole system. They may even detect problems before they become costly repairs.
Your home furnace will give you many years of warm comfort in your home but it must be repaired and maintained to keep it running efficiently. A poorly maintained gas heater could also be very dangerous to your family.
