When you rely on this machine, you expect it to work day in and day out without any issues. Unfortunately, a heater is a machine so you are bound to have some problems with heating in Denver at some point. It is important to know what some of these common problems may be before the cold weather starts to set it. As soon as several weeks from now, the true cold season will begin. What could go wrong? |
For starters, your heater could be blowing cold air. Of all the useless things for a machine to do, this could top it. A heater would continue to consume high amounts of energy for it to make you feel event colder! All it does is get the air moving! Why would this happen? Why would you hear the heater blowing and feel cool air around your feet that does not rise? Just as when an air conditioner blows warm air, there is a serious problem with a heater when it refuses to blow hot air--its chief purpose. Below are some reasons that this may happen, some troubleshooting and repairs that a professional heater technician would carry out, and what--if anything--can be done to prevent this problem.
First of all, do not be alarmed if your heater blows cool air for only a few minutes when you start your system. This occurs because there is cold air that has settled in your vents. Warm air will follow as soon as the machine has time to produce it then distribute it, which can take several minutes. There is not a problem with your machinery itself in these circumstances.
Depending on the type of heater you own, there could be many problems at hand if your heater never quite warms your home. First of all, there could be a lack of gas supplying your furnace. There may be an issue with the thermostat and the signals that it is sending to the heater. For the former issue, check your gas supply or contact your utility provider for assistance. For the latter issue, quickly check to be sure that your thermostat is on the heat setting and the target temperature is high enough that warm air would be required to reach it. There may also be a problem with the battery in the thermostat. Even if it is low but not dead, the thermostat may have trouble communicating with the heating unit.
You can also try checking your system's pilot light. Is it lit? Will it relight? If not, then there must be an issue with your fueling supply.
If you want, you can try to reboot your heater. Do so by lowering the target temperature on your thermostat to a level that is at or below the current room temperature. Then, turn off the breaker for the heater. Let it rest for a few minutes, then turn it back on. Raise the thermostat temperature, be sure that the heat setting is on, and wait a few minutes for cool air to blow out of your vents.
Does the air eventually get warm?
If these basic troubleshooting techniques do not work, consider contacting experts in heating in Denver. These professionals can assess the complex issues that may forbid your heater from blowing cold air then repair these issues. In fact, it is recommended that you schedule a tune-up for your heater in the fall so that it is prepared to endure the winter. That way, you will not be forced to check into a hotel or stay with a relative because your heater is not blowing hot air.
