In certain areas of America, it gets cold and people living in these cold conditions are reliant on an HVAC heating system to stay warm and comfortable. HVAC heating systems can basically be divided into two categories, a radiant system that incorporates separate HVAC heating units and a centralized HVAC heating system that incorporates a single central heating unit. 

There are three different forms of HVAC heating systems and these are a hydronic system, the forced-air duct system, and the mini-split ductless system. All three types can be installed and repaired by the experts at Heating repair Waltham Heating repair Watertown and Heating repair Newton.

The Hydronic system uses a boiler that heats water and then pumps the hot water through pipes under walls and floors. This heats up walls and floors and the entire room. 

The second type of HVAC heating system is what is called a forced-air heating system. The forced air system works by creating hot air and then blowing it through a ventilation system (pipes) into an inside environment through ducts.

The third type of heating system is the mini-split system that is composed of single units that create hot air and blow it out. Typically, these units will be used to heat a single room.

When any type of HVAC heating system stops functioning properly it’s time to contact Heating repair Waltham Heating repair Watertown and Heating repair Newton.

Signs that your HVAC heating system needs repair
One sign indicating that an HVAC heating system needs repair is when it creates unusual and weird sounds. If your HVAC heating system makes clanking sounds or whistling and groaning noises then chances are it needs repair work which should be conducted by HVAC heating experts like Heating repair Waltham Heating repair Watertown and Heating repair Newton.

A squealing motor can indicate the motor’s bearings need replacing or possibly the blower motor is failing. Whistling noises can indicate airflow issues or dirty burners.  

Power supply problems
If your HVAC heating system shuts down suddenly it’s probably because of a blown fuse or a tripped breaker which indicates there is some sort of electrical problem. A typical cause of a tripped breaker is dirty filters. When a filter is dirty it clogs the filter system which means the blower has to work harder to force air through the air filter. The blower working harder means it is consuming significantly more energy which may trip the circuit breaker.

The solution is to call the HVAC heating system professionals at Heating repair Waltham Heating repair Watertown and Heating repair Newton and have them clean the entire filter system and blower fan.

Smells and foul odors.
A smell or foul odorindicates that an HVAC system is in need of repair. For example, if the heating system is issuing a musty smell this is an indication that there is a build-up of water somewhere in your heating system. 

Another worrying smell that may occur is a burning smell. A burning smell indicates that electrical wiring has been damaged or the heating system is overheating. A burning smell indicates there is something seriously wrong with an HVAC heating system and even possibly dangerous so when a burning smell occurs make sure to quickly contact professional repairpersons at Heating repair Waltham Heating repair Watertown and Heating repair Newton

Inconsistent temperatures
If the HVAC system is not providing consistent heat levels this is an indication that repairs are needed. Inconsistent heat supply can be caused by blocked or closed air ducts, incorrect furnace size, dirty filters, and duct leaks. To clean or repair duct leaks or dirty filters call the professional repair teams at Heating repair Waltham Heating repair Watertown and Heating repair Newton

Reduced or low airflow
If an HVAC heating system blows room temperature air or ceases blowing air completely then it needs repairing by Heating repair Waltham Heating repair Watertown and Heating repair Newton

Lack of heated air or lack of any air can be caused by several problems including dirty and clogged air filters which cause the furnace or heat pump to overheat and shut down, the furnace is turned off, the heat pump has leaked, or is low on refrigerant, an electrical problem, the registers are blocked, the heat is escaping because of a ductwork leak or the thermostat is set incorrectly.

To correct any of these problems contact an HVAC repair team like Heating repair Waltham Heating repair Watertown and Heating repair Newton

HVAC heating systems produce condensate which is removed from the heating system in a condensate drain. The drain lines can become clogged or cracked which causes a water leak. Water leaks can also be caused by the collector box, the heat exchanger, or the evaporator drain pan. It is also possible that the HVAC system can have a refrigeration leak.

All leaks can be repaired by qualified repairmen at Heating repair Waltham Heating repair Watertown and Heating repair Newton

A dirty condenser or evaporator coil
If not changed regularly furnace filters can become dirty which leads to the indoor evaporator coils becoming dirty and clogged which significantly reduces the efficiency of the coil. Dirty indoor coils should only be repaired by trained professionals like those at Heating repair Waltham Heating repair Watertown and Heating repair Newton

Thermostat malfunctions
Thermostats can basically be divided into two general types, programable and nonprogrammable. When a furnace ceases to operate the most common reason why is because of a problem with the thermostat or the thermostat is set incorrectly.  

Other problems with the thermostat include; a thermostat being old, a thermostat being placed incorrectly, dirt and debris build-up, and the thermostat batteries running out of power.

Thermostats are sensitive equipment and if a thermostat needs repairing, this should only be done by qualified repair technicians such as those at Heating repair Waltham Heating repair Watertown and Heating repair Newton
