Common Central Heating Issues – Pt. 1

hvac technicianAs winter sets in, even Texans are turning on the heat. There is no convenient time for your central air to break down, so it’s important to watch for signs that it may not be running as efficiently as it should. Here are a few common issues to look out for when you own a central heating system:

Heat Loss – If your heater does not seem to be heating your home adequately, or the heat is not evenly distributed around your house, it can be the result of a few different common issues. These issues include an airlock, clogged or dirty filters, and airlock.

Air Lock – Sometimes air can become trapped in your pipes, which prevents hot water from moving through your system. This may require a technician to back-flush the heating system or bleed the radiators.

Frequent On/Off Cycling – If your furnace keeps cycling on and off more frequently than it should, you should call a technician to get your heater fixed as soon as you can. This frequent cycling can be caused by any number of issues like low water pressure, a pump problem, issues with your thermostat, or a closed valve.

These are just three common issues that you may run into this winter. In our next post, we will cover three more problems for which to look out. When you need heater repair in Conroe, TX, contact the team at Air On Time AC at (281) 883-9972.
