Common Furnace Repairs
Gas, oil, and electric furnaces are the most commonly used heating equipment found in Southern Maryland homes. These systems are dependable and effective, but they can experience a few common issues from time to time:
Pilot light failure: A pilot that refuses to stay lit, or will not light at all, may simply need furnace maintenance service. However, it’s also possible that repair may be necessary.
Furnace overheating: Overheating is typically caused by airflow restriction. You can start by changing the air filter in your furnace. If this does not resolve the issue, you will need to call for furnace repair.
Short-cycling: Short-cycling can be caused by a variety of issues ranging from very simple to complex. However, regardless of the cause, we urge you to schedule furnace repair as soon as possible.
Some furnace problems may be able to be repaired with little cost or worry. However, it may be more cost-effective to simply replace the system entirely. Our experienced technicians will provide you with the service and information you need in order to make the right call.
Boiler heating systems are equally powerful and durable, and they rarely need repair beyond routine heating maintenance. But no system is immune to trouble from time to time. You may need boiler repair if you notice:
Boiler leaking: Because boilers use hot water and steam to provide heat, it’s possible for the boiler to begin leaking when it is in need of repairs.
Uneven home heating: A home boiler should provide incredibly even heating at all times. If you’re noticing cold spots, you may need boiler repair. If the system is over 15 years old, you may need boiler replacement.
Heat Pump Repair
Here are some of the most common heat pump problems our team repairs:
Heat pump stuck in a mode: A worn reversing valve will keep your heat pump from switching between “cool” and “heat” modes.
Heat pump is frozen: Heat pumps can typically defrost themselves, but sometimes the defrost will fail, or the ice formation will be too extensive, meaning you need repair.
