Why Isn't My Heater Working?

February 10, 2022 | Blog

Being in a cold home can be uncomfortable, especially when the temperature outside is low. If you have heater system problems, you have come to the perfect place. Our team at Southern Air Mississippi wants to give you some troubleshooting advice.

Most homeowners can fix some heater repair issues, and some may require professional help. If you are uncomfortable performing any of these fixes, give us a call today to schedule a furnace repair. No matter the problem, we are here to help!

5 Common Heater System Issues

The following issues are some easy and not-so-easy fixes. We want to be sure you can identify them to know when to give us a call. Being able to identify the problem with your system quickly will help you to be able to react rapidly. If the issue goes unnoticed, your system could become more damaged and cost you more to repair.

Issues With Your Thermostat

Most modern thermostats are made to last a while before needing to be replaced, but there comes a time when your thermostat may need repairing or replacement. If you notice your air not kicking on when switching to heat or cool, it may be time to schedule an inspection to see if your thermostat is at fault.

If you require a new thermostat, we recommend a smart programmable thermostat. The pro of a smart programmable thermostat is setting a schedule for your thermostat.

Setting a schedule means less energy waste and more money in your pocket!

Low Coolant Levels

If you have a heat pump system, your heater relies on the coolant to not overheat. If your HVAC system is repeatedly shutting off after only being on for a few moments, it may be time to replace your coolant. This is something you can DIY, but our recommendation is to give us a call to help assist you. Give us a call today to schedule your appointment.

Damaged Ductwork

If your home is heating improperly or not at all, it may be a sign of ductwork issues. There may be small holes in your ductwork, causing uneven heating. If you suspect your ductwork to be the issue, give us a call to schedule an appointment today.

Neglected Heater System

It is vital to take care of your furnace. Making sure the system and the area around it is clean is crucial. Check to make sure your air filter is not clogged. You should change your filter every two to three months.

Our number one recommendation for maintaining the health and quality of your system is to schedule a heater tune-up at least once a year.

Time to Get a Heater Replacement

Our heater systems would last us forever and never have any issues in an ideal world. Modern heaters are built better than in the past, but it is still possible for your heating system to die out and need to be replaced.

Our team at Southern Air Mississippi can provide trusted service and heater installation for any home in the Mississippi area. If you need a furnace installation, we will be the ones you call. If you are unsure if you need a replacement or not, feel free to give us a call to schedule your appointment today!
