Heating Repair could be needed if your furnace ignitor looks the one on the left.
There may be nothing as unpleasant as arriving home on a cold winter day only to find your home uncomfortably cool. Patterson Heating and Air Conditioning has you covered and are available 7 days a week. Whatever type of heating system you have, Patterson’s certified technicians can repair or replace it. If your heating system fails, you probably have some questions – here are some commonly asked questions and answers that we typically receive:
Is there some way I could have seen this coming?
There are definite warning signs that your heating system may be on its way to a breakdown.
Increase in electric or gas bill. If your bill has been going up lately, it most likely means that your heating system is running less efficiently. This could be a sign that a total breakdown is in the near future or that you may need some repairs.
Excessive noise. If your heating system has been making a lot of racket or just more noise than it used to, you may need a repair. There are likely parts that are disconnected or components that are close to wearing out.
Your home doesn’t feel comfortable. If your home doesn’t feel warm enough, or if some rooms feel warmer than others, that’s a sign that your heating system isn’t running properly.
The thermostat won’t regulate. If it seems that your thermostat won’t stay at the designated temperature or if the system seems to be running constantly and never reaching the designated temperature, you may have a problem with your heating system or the thermostat.
Those are just a few of the most common warning signs that your heating system may be about to fail.
How much will a repair cost?
The cost of a repair is dependent upon the severity of the problem and if there are any new parts necessary. The length of time necessary to repair the system will also be a factor. Patterson Heating and Air Conditioning offers competitive rates and financing if necessary.
Could this have been prevented?
With routine maintenance you can keep your heat pump or furnace running well. Patterson offers Our Comfort Guard Service Agreement which includes two annual maintenance visits to tune up your heating and air conditioning system. The maintenance includes cleaning, lubricating, and repairing anything that needs to be repaired.
What if the heating system can’t be repaired?
It is possible that your heating system may not be able to be repaired. If this is the case, Patterson can install a new heat pump or furnace for you. There are definite advantages to installing a new system. Newer systems run more efficiently and cost less in energy. Sometimes the cost of repairs can be more than the cost of a new system. Our certified technicians can install any type and any brand of heating system. We will also help you to determine what system would be best for your home.
