Signs Your Heating Unit Needs a Tune Up

 

HeaterHomeowners that are experiencing problems with their heating units may have to seek the services of a professional in order to remedy the problem. There are many parts that make up a heating unit, and many of those parts require special experience, or tools, in order to replace. It is not financially beneficial for a homeowner to try to service their heat unit themselves. Instead, they should hire someone that has the experience and ability to quickly diagnose, and repair, a homeowner’s unit. Homeowners can help to point the professionals in the right direction, though. They can look for the telltale signs that a heating unit is starting to perform poorly. If they do this they may be able to catch a small, and inexpensive, problem before it escalates to a full blown disaster.

A heating unit that turns on and then shuts off continuously should be serviced. This is known as ‘short cycling’ and it often means that there is something wrong with the control board on the heating unit. The fan motor of the heating unit will turn cycle on and off while it tries to heat the home. If left undiagnosed this problem could overload the furnace’s blower motor since the blower motor is being put under, and off of, a power load frequently. It also will increase the homeowner’s electric bill since the fan motor will be on more than normal.
