On Checking and Maintaining Your Heater
Heaters do need to be checked, maintained, and repaired at least once a year. The heater is responsible for maintaining the ideal room temperature. It’s also used to maintain the humidity level inside the room. But how can you tell if your heater needs repair or replacement? For proper repair work, schedule a heating service!
Here’s what you can do to check and maintain your heating system:
Look at the control panel
Look at the control panel of your heater to see if it has any errors or lights flashing. You will need to turn it off and on to see or check if there is an error code or flashing light. Some lights will indicate the problem and how to handle them. So, if you see any flashing lights, check the unit’s manual to learn what the codes mean and how to fix them. Make sure to contact your repair service provider to help you determine what’s causing the issue.
Check the casing
Look at the heater’s casing to see if it has moisture around the heat exchanger. If the heat exchanger has condensation, then this is a sign that the heater is broken. So, have it checked by your trusted service provider right away. This problem can cause a stop working and even damage the heater. You must contact a technician as soon as possible.
Take a gander at the circuit breaker
Check the circuit breaker. If there is a problem, the breaker may trip and the power will be cut off. Check the heater’s breaker to see if it has tripped. If the breaker is tripping, this is a sign that the heater has electrical problems. But before repairing the electrical problem, you first need to have it checked by a technician. So, hire a heating expert as soon as possible.
