Feb 3 ,2017

Heating Air Conditioning St. Louis Park MNThough there are several problems that could occur with your home heating system, it’s important to take note of the most common problems. This way, you can remain alert to any possible repairs that may need to happen.

Here are the most common causes of home heating repair problems, and how to identify them:

  • Dirty or clogged filters. If you notice that your heating system isn’t working efficiently, one of the first things you’ll want to check is the filters. Are they dirty and clogged with debris? This is likely the cause of any malfunction. Remember to clean out your filters monthly, to prevent them from clogging up your entire system.
  • Your thermostat is broken. This one’s easy to spot! If you notice that your heating system isn’t emitting any heat, a broken thermostat could be a likely culprit. Luckily, this is an easy fix.
  • Your pilot light isn’t working. Has your home heating stopped working, with no warning? If this isn’t due to a power failure, it’s likely that your pilot light or ignition system might be the problem. In this case, it’s highly recommended to get in touch with an HVAC professional!
  • Lack of maintenance. Generally, a lack of maintenance is often the cause of most home heating repair problems. To avoid costly repairs and possible replacement of your heating system, always be sure to properly maintain it.
