Even the best models of heaters are still susceptible to problems on occasion. However, not every problem has to become a headache. Being alert to the early, subtle signs is the key to avoiding a sudden emergency.
Some of the most common symptoms of heater problems include issues such as:
- The smell of burning dust – This is often a sure indicator that the heater’s burners have become clogged. If the burners are covered by layers of pollen, grime, lint, dust, and dirt, they will not ignite immediately. This delay can ruin the sensitive heat exchangers. It can also deteriorate indoor air quality through carbon monoxide poisoning.
- The system keeps cycling on and off – This sign means that the airflow has been cut off, most likely by dirty filters. As hot air builds up and cool air is trapped outside, the system will often shut off suddenly.
- The evaporator coil has frozen over – When there is not enough heat in the air to be absorbed, the moisture gathering on the coil will freeze over. Usually, the lack of heat comes from proper airflow.
How Long Does Heater Troubleshooting Take?
The answer to this question greatly depends on the type of heater problem. When the issue is with a loose connection or a dirty filter, this can be resolved quite quickly. It often only takes a few hours to change these parts out. However, other types of heating troubles may take several days or even weeks to fix, especially if any replacement parts must be ordered.
