Avoid sudden heating system breakdowns and higher emergency repair costs by having repairs completed as soon as you know your heating system has a problem. Call the experts at All Seasons Heating & Cooling for all your heating system concerns. Our HVAC, furnace, heat pump and boiler services include superior heater maintenance, repair and installation of all the top brands. We quickly find and fix common heating problems, so you stay comfortably warm all winter.

Dirty Filters

One of the most common and easiest-to-fix problems is a dirty air filter. Clogged filters restrict airflow, which makes your heater work harder to circulate air, and can blow the limit switch that controls the fan. Clean or change your filters according to the manufacturer’s directions — sooner if they become clogged — to keep your heating system running efficiently.

Faulty Thermostat

Whether you have a conventional, programmable or smart thermostat, any thermostat may act up. Common thermostat problems include dead batteries, improper programming or temperature settings, and inability to match with your home’s heating system. We check thermostat wire connections and test your thermostat to determine whether it’s a malfunction or operator error.

Pilot Light Or Ignition Control Problems

Modern heating systems have a hot surface ignition or an intermittent pilot light. A malfunctioning ignition control could cause intermittent or no heat. Newer furnaces may not have a pilot light but have an electronic ignition, which can also fail. Our trained technicians check the igniter, flame sensor and other components to determine why your heating system won’t light or stay lit.

Leaky Ductwork

Leaky ductwork can increase heating bills and often goes unnoticed. We inspect ductwork and repair minor leaks, but you can also hunt for leaks yourself. Walk alongside your ductwork and feel for blowing air that indicates a leak that needs sealed. This is one of the many things you can try before calling us.

Scheduling annual heater maintenance and inspections prevents higher heating bills, unexpected problems, costly breakdowns and premature replacement of your heater.
