Heating Repair – What You Should Know Before Starting

Google Rating

Heating Repair processIf you’re quite technically minded, good with a wrench and a screwdriver, you may consider tackling a heating repair job yourself – if you know what you’re doing, it can be a good way of keeping down the costs associated with running a heater, however, if you’re unsure, it can be an equally good way of emptying your wallet.

Before You Start

Before tackling any job like this, you should always try and be sure as to what the problem is and just what is involved in fixing it. A great tip – be honest with yourself, if you struggle to identify a wrench from a hammer, maybe you should get some professional help to repair the problem. Once you know where the problem is, you can work out if you’re confident enough of fixing it.

Safety

Be sure to minimize any risks – both in terms of power or fuel to the unit and temperatures – what may feel ‘slightly warm’ when held for a few seconds can easily turn into ‘feels like the sun’ when having to hold it for longer periods of time. Also remember that a heater is full of moving parts – try not to get your fingers or clothing trapped in any part of it. Would you lift the hood of your car and stick your fingers in the engine bay while it’s running? Nope.

Time

Leave yourself plenty of time to carry out the repair, even a professional can get things wrong if they are made to rush it. Another great tip – estimate the amount of time it will take you, then double it. We are sure that figure will be closer!

If you don’t feel confident enough to repair a heater (and let’s be honest, not many people can), then call the professionals at Western Heating and Air Conditioning. Always unbiased and professional. Contact us online to schedule an appointment.

Tyler and Carter were efficient, helpful, and courteous. They walked us through our new system and explained everything so we could use and maintain the system after they left. Great experience!

Brady and LT (and the entire Western Heating & Air Team) have been amazing through a less than ideal scenario. Our outdoor unit with our ductless system was having issues and completely went down on two occasions. Once they figured out the issue, they got a warranty claim in process and quickly got the new unit installed (Brady and LT are true professionals and pros at what they do). Our family feels in good hands with Western Heating and Air, and appreciate all the compassion and hard work to help us through this less than ideal scenario with the problems we had with the outdoor unit. THANK YOU!
