When Do I Schedule Heating Repairs?

Monday, October 22nd, 2018

hello-winterThat weather forecast is definitely telling us something, and that something is that winter is on its way once more! You’ve already been running your heater, we’re sure, but its days of work are in their infancy for this heating season. There is a whole lot more, a whole lot colder, weather coming our way, and you need to know that your heater is going to be there for you throughout the worst of it. Routine maintenance is the best insurance in this regard.

Even when you have your heater in great working condition, though, there is a chance that it is going to run into operational problems of some kind. There is simply no such thing as a 100% reliable heater, and anyone claiming that they have one to sell you can probably find you a really good deal on a bridge, too.  (more…)

Why Does My Heater Keep Shutting Down?

Monday, December 18th, 2017

chilly-couple-on-couchDecember is somehow already nearly halfway over. We’ve got a lot of the heating season left to go, though, and this being Vermont means that the cold weather is going to be pretty severe for the foreseeable future. If you hope to make it through the heating season in true comfort—or anything even resembling it—then you really need your heater to be firing on all cylinders. The fact that your heater is generating heat does not necessarily mean that it is doing so in the proper manner.

One question that we get from concerned homeowners now and again is why their heaters seem to be running in short bursts. The system starts up, but stays on only briefly before shutting back down again. While this may seem at first to be something of an odd quirk, the fact is that any problems with your heater have the potential to seriously disrupt your comfort. This particular problem is called short cycling, and it can definitely spell trouble for your heater in Ludlow, VT.

The furnace has earned its place among the home heating system elite thanks to its prompt, effective heating performance. Like any other heating system, though, the furnace is not perfect. At some point, you are going to find yourself in need of furnace repairs. Ideally, you’ll realize this early on.

The longer that you wait to have any issues with your furnace resolved, the worse off that system is likely to be. The “good” news, if you can call it that, is that your furnace is going to exhibit some warning signs when trouble is brewing.

How Prompt Heating Repair in Southern Vermont Protects Your Comfort and Your System

Monday, December 2nd, 2013

If you start to experience issues with your heater—a rumbling boiler, a gas furnace with a flickering pilot light, a general loss in heating power—your first instinct might be just to ignore it. Maybe it’s nothing and it will go away soon. However, this rarely occurs. When your heater shows signs of a malfunction, you need to have prompt repairs performed on it. Call a professional HVAC contractor (try to find one with 24-hour emergency service) and summon their assistance. Leaving small repairs until later usually means big trouble sooner—both for your comfort and for your heating system.

For the necessary heating repair in Southern Vermont, look to HB Energy Solutions. We have over two decades of experience. And yes, we offer 24/7 emergency service.

Why prompt heating repair is so important

The reason that getting timely repairs done on your heating system is crucial is that malfunctions tend to increase and cause a chain reaction of other malfunctions. This will lead to your heating system requiring a serious and expensive repair to keep it operating. As your heater continues to decline, your comfort will suffer as the system begins to struggle to maintain the warmth you expect. Something that seems simple, like cracks in a blower motor fan belt, can quickly turn into a major problem when the belt breaks loose and begins to strike other components in the cabinet. Problems with wiring that sound minor won’t seem so when they start tripping circuit breakers and continually cutting off the power.

Eventually, unattended repair needs will lead to your heater shutting down entirely until emergency repairs restore it. You know when this will happen, right? Correct, it will happen on the coldest day of the year. This isn’t some invisible hand of fate at work; it’s because the heater will be pushed to the limits of its ability on that day, leading to those malfunctions that will finally cause it to break down.

However, you can avoid the need for emergency calls to get your heater back in operation with regular preventive maintenance and care. If you enroll your heater in a maintenance program that provides an annual check-up and tune-up so that it runs its best, you will encounter far fewer repair issues and enjoy better comfort throughout the year.

Whether you need immediate heating repairs or you want to start with regular maintenance, contact HB Energy Solutions. One call to us will have your problems taken care of. We have served Southern Vermont with heating repair and maintenance for 21 years. Join our family of satisfied clients today.
