A malfunctioning heater can make your home or business miserable during our extreme winters. Here are a few common heating repairs and their solutions:
- Clogged filter: Your filters last between three to six months depending on their type and if you smoke or have pets. A dirty filter reduces efficiency and airflow, making your furnace work harder than necessary and cycle more often. Replace your filter regularly to avoid putting excessive wear and tear on your unit.
- Cracked heat exchanger: Making your system work harder with a clogged filter can cause your heat exchanger to overheat and crack. This is one of the many signs that your heater is on its way out and should be replaced.
- Unpleasant odors: Mold, overheating, a gas leak, or burnt wires can cause foul odors from your heater. When you call our professionals for heater repair in Kokomo, describe the smell so we can keep you safe before our team arrives.
- Unusual sounds: Rattling and pinging are sounds you shouldn’t constantly hear from your furnace, but these are often easy fixes. Tightening loose parts can stop the rattling, and pinging is usual during changing seasons as your ductwork expands or contracts.
Regular maintenance can prevent your system from suffering from these common repairs. We understand that your furnace isn’t always going to break down during normal business hours. That’s why we offer 24/7 emergency services to restore comfort to your home or business as fast as possible.
Maintenance to Prevent Repairs
Biannual maintenance keeps your HVAC systems at their best, so you can avoid costly repairs and keep your warranty valid. When fall arrives, call Brandt’s Heating & Cooling for maintenance and necessary heater repair in Kokomo, so you have a reliable heater throughout the winter.
Benefits of regular maintenance include:
- Fewer breakdowns
- Improved airflow
- Reduced cycling
- Higher efficiency
- Valid warranty
- Longer lifespan
Regular maintenance prevents unexpected breakdowns and allows our team to replace aging parts before they completely go out and damage other parts of your system. Faulty fans, blocked ducts, and clogged filters stop air from moving throughout your system, making your heater cycle more often and reducing efficiency. The harder your unit works, the more prone it is to breakdowns. Regular maintenance is also required for most warranties to stay valid. Protect your unit for years and extend its lifespan with biannual maintenance.
