Heating Repair – What You Should Know Before Starting

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.

I care about how I'm treated by the technician and that's why I'll use this company while Ben is employed there. He knows what he is doing with the cleaning of my heater, and and he cares about my feelings as a person while he is there. Thanks!

Easton was a breath of fresh air. He was confident, efficient and positive. We enjoyed having him check out our furnace.

Wesley arrived and did maintenance as well as made sure everything was in working order. He explained some of the issues I had been experiencing and why they were happening. Very knowledgeable and professional. Wesley has been to our house before. When he's done i feel confident and assured that we have been taken care of and have been given sound advice for home maintenance between checkups. Thanks again for the quick response even though I know you guys are so busy.
