Fixing Simple Repairs

Although problems with modern heating systems are rare, when they do occur, you may want to fix them quickly yourself if the repair is simple. When performing any simple repair to a heating system in Alexandria, always make sure to consult the manuals for your heating system. Using the manual, you can typically troubleshoot and correct most common problems yourself. If there is no heat coming out, set the thermostat switch to the desired temperature. You can check to see if there is a faulty connection in the thermostat. It may just be a matter of tightening the connections. If the pilot light is out, you can simply relight it and press the reset button on the heating unit. If the heat still doesn't come on, check the fuses and the wire connections in the transformer.

When the furnace is recycling too little or too often, you can try adjusting the anticipator lever by turning it counterclockwise to increase the cycling time and turning the lever clockwise to decrease the cycling time. Many times, the off-beat recycling is due to an inaccuracy in the thermostat. You can easily re-calibrate the thermostat by following the manufacturer's instructions on the manual.

When to Call a Certified Technician

When simple troubleshooting techniques do not identify and fix the problem with a heating system in Alexandria, you should schedule a service call with Commonwealth Cooling & Heating right away. Putting off a timely repair can turn a small problem into a larger and more costly problem in the long run. In addition, you do not want to have an unexpected breakdown during the colder months in Alexandria, VA.

Many times, we can do the new installation the same day as the service call.
