We Solve Problems on Heating Systems in Albany

Published on: December 7, 2012

It’s easy to take your heating system for granted until it breaks down on a frigid Albany night. That’s when you realize how important it is for heating systems in Albany to work effectively and reliably. While problems in electrical connections can cause a sudden and abrupt failure in your heating system, other problems can send signals that allow a skilled HVAC technician to solve the issue before it leads to a complete system failure.

Heating systems that take a very long time to cycle on after adjusting the thermostat or that turn on and off repeatedly can be caused by a number of problems. A faulty thermostat, fan motor, pilot light ignition or worn wiring may be to blame. Oversized heating systems also tend to cycle on and off frequently. Our quality heating contractors use their experience and skills to pinpoint the source of the problem. Left unattended, these operational issues will only worsen over time.

Higher than usual energy bills are sometimes the first indication that your heating system is in trouble. Poor energy efficiency is behind skyrocketing energy bills. Problems with heating systems typically cause the equipment to expend more energy than they should. Determining the reason for the impaired efficiency, however, requires the skill of a qualified professional.

Heating systems are intricate pieces of equipment that must work in precise sync with each other to achieve optimum efficiency. A fan that no longer turns off automatically will clearly run up your energy bills. Other energy-draining issues such as leaks and obstructions are more difficult to diagnose.

Fortunately, our expert technicians have a wealth of experience to draw upon when dealing with all types of heating systems in Albany. Our HVAC pros can not only quickly locate and address issues with energy efficiency but can spot ways for you to enhance the efficiency as well.

Sealing the ductwork in your heating system, for example, can improve the system’s efficiency by 20 percent or more according to the Environmental Protection Agency. Because it’s critical to maintain the ductwork’s air exchange balance, however, duct sealing is best left to our skilled professionals. Improper duct sealing can actually worsen energy efficiency.

Our problem-solving HVAC technicians are also your ideal resource when it comes to making decisions about replacing or repairing your heating system. We can perform cost analysis calculations that will help you choose the most affordable option.

During the cold months of an Albany winter, the last thing that you want is a problem with your home heating system. Our HVAC technicians also provide preventative maintenance programs that schedule winter tune-ups in the fall, before the extreme winter weather rolls in
