Furnace Repair Services in New Hampshire
No Heat Blowing
If your furnace is on but not giving off any heat, you may have a clogged or dirty air filter. Typically, you’d want to change your air filter every 30 to 60 days, but that’s also dependent on many other factors in your home. If you smoke, have pets, or suffer from allergies, you may need to change your filter on a specific schedule. Since it gets cold in our neck of the woods, we all run our heat more often than other areas of the country, which leads to the filter getting clogged quicker. If changing the filter doesn’t fix this issue, it’s time to call Heritage for help.
Drastic Temperature Changes
Any drastic temperature changes while running your furnace are cause for alarm. You may suddenly feel cold air vs. hot air, even if it’s been warm in the room for a while in some situations. In this case, turn off your furnace completely, wait about five minutes, then turn it back on again four or five degrees higher than what you had the temperature set to. See if that does the trick. If not, turn the furnace off and change your thermostat batteries. If neither of these tips works to get your heat working properly, it’s another reason to call our experts in.
Pilot Light Failure
If your home furnace does not turn on at all, that is commonly an issue with your pilot light. If you have an older furnace in your home, pay attention to your pilot light and if it remains lit. If the pilot light goes out and wont re-light when you reset the furnace, the system won’t turn on at all. A pilot light essentially stays lit 24/7/365 days a year; it’s a waste of fuel and could cost hundreds of dollars in fuel costs over the course of a year. An electronic ignition replaces older pilot light technology and saves you money.
