Heating Repair – Do-It-Yourself – 6 Steps to Heating System Repair


Welcome to One Hour TV! This is Jim from One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning! I have a few questions for you:

Is your heating system blowing cold air?
Does one room feel chillier than another?

If so, I have some helpful information that could help your system get back to producing comfortable air. These are the 6 helpful steps you can take:

Step 1: Check your thermostat setting. Make sure it’s set on “heat.” Replace the batteries on your programmable thermostat. Then, set your thermostat at least 10 degrees warmer than the indoor temperature to get a clear gauge if your heating system is operating properly.

Step 2: Test your thermostat’s accuracy with another temperature gauge. If they do not match, your thermostat may be out of calibration and needs to be reset. To do so, reference the manufacturer’s instructions.

Step 3: Check the power to your unit. A circuit breaker may be tripped. In that case, flip the switch. This should not happen often—if it does, consult a licensed HVAC technician. Also, check the master switches to both your inside and outside units, and make sure both are on and receiving electricity.

Step 4: Press your heating system’s reset button. By resetting the unit, it can clear some of the minor mechanical issues that may cause the system to act irregularly.

Step 5: Go to the system’s return vent and change your filter. Dirt restricts air flow, can cause problems, and impact the temperature of your home. As a rule of thumb, change your filter every month.

Step 6: Make sure none of your air vents are blocked! Nothing should be obstructing them, including drapes and furniture; they can restrict air flow and impact a room’s temperature.

Those are my 6 steps you need to know to repair your heating system. If your system still acts irregularly after following them, it likely needs servicing.

When choosing a heating and cooling company, it’s important that you find one that employs licensed, highly trained, background-checked, and drug-tested technicians. Considering this person will be in your home, it would be nice if the technician is also well-groomed, honest, polite, informative, and will give you options on how to improve your comfort.

Our services are not limited to only HVAC maintenance, HVAC installation, and HVAC repair. One Hour Air Conditioning and Heating also is concerned with the QUALITY of the air inside your home. Allergies are a big problem. Statistics prove that often the quality of air inside your home can be worse than outside, due to the home being air tight and accumulating dust, molds, and contaminants. Your air conditioning ducts often harbor many of these contaminants. One Hour Air offers Air Duct Cleaning to promote a healthy indoor environment.
