Home Heater Repair in Denver, CO
In Denver, CO, you rely heavily on your heating in the winter. When your system gives out during the coldest time of the year, your home can quickly grow uncomfortable.
At HomeSmart from Xcel Energy, we provide high-quality home heating repair services. But if you’re comfortable doing a little troubleshooting before calling a professional, try the tips below.
When your furnace is acting up, the issues could be caused by somewhat simple problems. Before you do anything, take a look at your thermostat. Be sure the power switch is in the right position and that the thermostat is properly programmed. If it’s not on and operational, check the batteries and the power supply. There’s a chance a fuse may have been broken or blown.
If the thermostat has a constant power supply and is correctly set, a dysfunctional thermostat could be the problem. Your furnace issues could also be a result of a:
- Clogged filter
- Blown or broken fuse
- Damaged part
- Extinguished pilot light
- Valve or electronic ignition issue
You can carefully relight your pilot light by following the instructions in your owner’s manual, and a simple inspection of your breaker box can reveal any power problems. Filters can simply be replaced or cleaned. For other, more complex issues, it’s better to call a professional to take a look.
As part of a forced hot water system, boilers heat up water and send it through the pipes for effective heating. Like furnaces, boilers can have problems when the pilot light goes out or a fuse blows or breaks. If the pilot light is extinguished, safely relight it. And if you suspect there’s a power issue, look at your fuse box.
Problems may also be caused by:
- Expansion tank issues
- Mineral deposits
- Pump issues
For your safety, don’t take on repairs and other tasks you aren’t comfortable with. If the issues persist after some basic troubleshooting, call the professionals at HomeSmart from Xcel Energy for top-notch home heater repair and maintenance services.
