Common Heating Repair Issues in Yucaipa, CA

Keeping your home comfortable is a huge priority for homeowners. All that use means that you will likely run into problems. Call the Yucaipa, CA heating repair pros at Russell’s Heating & Air Conditioning if you run into any problems with your heater or heating system. We’ve been repairing all different kinds of heating systems for over 30 years.

Here are a few of the most common heating issues that we see throughout Yucaipa:

Clogged Air Filter

For forced–air heating systems like furnaces and heat pumps, a clogged air filter is by far the most common cause of repairs. The air filter on your system is there to keep dust, dirt and other debris from getting into the moving parts. If it gets clogged it will restrict the flow of air into your heater. This can cause overheating, short cycling, insufficient heating and increased repair needs.

Not Enough Heating

We often get calls from customers whose heating systems aren’t heating their home enough. If this is happening to you, call the Yucaipa heating repair technicians at Russell’s Heating & Air Conditioning. This problem can happen with all different types of heating systems. That’s why the experts at Russell’s Heating & Air Conditioning have the experience and training to work on all types of heating systems. From electric baseboard heating and boilers to furnaces, heat pumps and more, our heating repair techs at Russell’s Heating & Air Conditioning can handle any issue.

Strange Noises

Another very common problem with heating systems is strange noises. Because of all of the moving parts that your heater has there are a number of things that can break and make noises. Depending on the type of heating system that you have the noise could vary.

  • Furnace rattling or wiggling flames – If your furnace is making a rattling noise it could be a sign that you have a cracked heat exchanger. If your heat exchanger is cracked it could be leaking carbon monoxide out into your home. Also, if you notice that your furnace’s flames are blue or wiggling, these can also both be signs that your heat exchanger is cracked.
  • Boiler squealing or leaking – If your boiler has started to squeal or if it is leaking water these are both signs that you need repair. Call heating repair professional immediately.
  • Furnace or heat pump squealing – If you have a furnace or a heat pump and it is squealing it likely means that the fan belt is worn out and needs to be replaced.

Heater FAQs

What are the signs of a heating failure?
Most heating systems will need to be replaced when they are around 15-20 years old. If you have a heating system of this age, it may be time to replace it. Other signs of a failing heating system include.

  • Troubles warming your home.
  • Slow to turn on.
  • Low airflow
  • Bad or strange odors.
  • Loud, banging noises.
  • Larger electricity bills.

If you notice any of these signs, it is time to contact Russell’s. We will inspect your heating system and give you service recommendations.

What are the parts of my heating system?
There are three main parts of a heating system: the furnace (or heat source), the ductwork (air circulation system), and the thermostat. Most California homes have a furnace, so we will be assuming that heat source in this description. The furnace is the part of the heating system that provides hot air. The ducts take the hot air to different rooms in your home. Finally, the whole system is controlled by the thermostat.

Depending on the size of your home, you may have a lot of ductwork or multiple thermostats. The basic components of the heating system remain the same, however. If you have a problem with any of these three components, you will need heating repair or replacement.

What type of furnace do I need?
A furnace burns a specific type of fuel to create your home’s heat. Often furnaces will create this heat using electricity, natural gas, or fuel oil. You may also find wood-burning furnaces. Electric and natural gas are probably the most common types of furnaces.

Your choice of furnace will depend on your climate, how much energy efficiency you want, and the size you need. You want to purchase a furnace and use a fuel type that will heat your home well without straining the system or running up your utility bills. The experts at Russell’s can help you determine the best type of furnace for your home.

How do I save money with my heating system?
The best way to keep the heating bills down is to set your thermostat to a slightly cooler temperature (or warmer temperature in the summer). You want to remain comfortable. But, a difference of just one or two degrees can change your bills dramatically.

Another way to save money is to keep your heating system well-maintained. This means regular maintenance and repair. A heating system that works efficiently will cost a lot less in the long run than one that has problems.

Should I choose combined or separate heating and cooling systems?
Most California homes have a heating and a cooling system. You can have these systems installed separately or purchase a combined system. A combined heating and cooling system will save space. It also saves you money because you will be purchasing one system instead of two.

However, there are some climates where a combined heating and cooling system will not work. Talk to the experts at Russell’s to learn more about which heating and cooling systems are best for your home.
