Your home’s heating system is important.  Without a heating system, you may be unable to get warm and will be constantly miserable. Even in a desert area like St. George, you don’t want to be without heat in the winter. 

Heating systems are important, but you never know when yours might break. If its the middle of winter and suddenly your heat won’t turn on, then you’re in for a long night. One way to prevent this nasty surprise is to have your heating system inspected by a heating company before the winter begins. A professional heating expert can tell you if it looks like your heater may soon go out or if any parts should be replaced. While this inspection may not find every problem with your heater and it could still break a while later, this may help prevent it from breaking without warning. 

If your heating system does break, there are a few things you can check into before calling a specialist. If you can figure out what is wrong with your heater before bringing someone out to your home, then the cost for labor may be less. Here are some common heating system problems:

  • The filter is too dirty
  • The blower belt is ruined or has slipped
  • The thermostat is broken
  • Old or worn-out parts
  • The ignitor is bad

If the problem with your heater is that the filter is too dirty for it to properly run, then you can easily replace the filter yourself. Make sure that you check for this common issue before spending money to bring an expert to your home. If a part or parts of your heater have broken, then you will need to replace them before your heater will run again. Some parts are more expensive and difficult to replace than others. It depends on the problem and the part needed to know whether or not you will need to hire a heating company to fix it for you. 

The cost of the repair will depend on what part is needed and how much damage has been done to the system. It also depends on what company you hire and the rates they charge for labor and service. 

A general heating system repair will probably cost a few hundred dollars when you include the parts replaced, the labor performed, and the attached fees. It may cost less than this but it probably won’t be much more expensive than this, unless you are facing a bunch of major heating system repairs and part replacements. Unless you have experience in this area or are able to tell what is wrong with your heating system, then you won’t know what the issue is or how much it will cost to repair. While you can make really minor repairs by yourself, you will need to hire a heating company to take care of any of the larger or major repairs that your furnace needs. 

When you are deciding on a heating company to hire, it’s a good idea to look into a few different companies before settling on one. If you have had work done on your system previously and liked the company that you went through before, then giving them another call would be a good idea. If this is your first time hiring a heating company’s services or you didn’t like the company you’ve gone through before, then you should try to find one that will actively and quickly take care of your needs and that has your best interests at heart. This is broad criteria and can be difficult to judge from just a phone call or a website. Look through the company’s reviews. Keep in mind that some people just like to complain and so not all reviews should be trusted as completely accurate. If most of the reviews you are seeing on a company are positive, then chances are that you will also have a positive experience with that company. 

Don’t wait to get your heater inspected or repaired. Without heat, you will be miserable. Repairs are more likely to be cheaper than they are to be really expensive, so don’t let the fear of cost prevent you from taking care of your furnace and taking care of your family’s needs.

Once you have decided on a company, don’t hesitate to give them a call. Talking to a representative can give you a better look at the company and give you an idea of how you will be treated. If you enjoy your conversation with the company, then go ahead and invite them to your home. If you don’t like how the conversation went or you don’t feel as though your questions were answered, then maybe try another heating company before making a decision. 

What if your furnace goes out in the middle of the night? What if you desperately need heat and your system isn’t providing it? A lot of heating system companies offer 24-hour emergency services. If your heater goes out unexpectedly and you need it fixed right away, then calling an emergency service line may be the way to go. You can have a professional at your home fixing your furnace quickly, greatly lowering your stress levels. If you can find a company that offers this 24-hour protection, then you can rest easier knowing that if something were to happen, you have a plan of action. 

Heat is essential to your life. Without a working furnace, you and your family will be uncomfortable and more likely to get sick. It’s never fun to be cold for hours on end, so making sure that your furnace is in working order and won’t break down anytime soon is important. You should get your heating system tuned up and inspected yearly in order to avoid this situation. There is still the possibility of your system breaking or needing a repair, but it is less likely to happen in the middle of winter if you have had your system inspected and taken care of before the weather turns too cold.
