With the north winds blowing off the ocean causing the temperatures to drop low during the winter months in the Bay Area, you want to know your heater is going to work at full capacity keeping keep you warm and happy. Our goal at B.A. Morrison is to ensure you stay warm this winter. Heaters, regardless of age, like everything that has working parts require maintenance to avoid emergency service that is inconvenient and possibly costly. A Bay Area air conditioning and heating technician can inspect your HVAC system to ensure your furnace runs smoothly all winter long.

Don’t Wait Until Your Heater Isn’t Working To Service It

That said, if your heater stops functioning, start with the obvious.  Many problems are simple and can be fixed easily. Do a little detective work and assess the situation. If you feel your home needs professional help, call us. We have been serving the Bay Area since 1990. An expert can help your furnace last longer, saving you money in the long run.

Pilot light. California’s warm winter days are frequently windy. If you have doors and windows open they can create a draft that will blow or suck the pilot light out. Directions are usually clear about how to relight a pilot, but if you are in doubt, and you are looking for a trustworthy East Bay heating professional, call B.A. Morrison and one of our HVAC specialists will light it for you.  

Air filter. If the filter becomes clogged, the air coming out will be cold. Burrrr—definitely not what you want on a cold night.

Wiring. Wires get old and break. Replacing a wire is usually a simple fix but should be done by a professional. We at B.A. Morrison can service your heater and make sure the whole system is in good working order.

Thermostat and its wiring. Make sure the wire from the heating element to the thermostat is intact. If it is, it could mean the thermostat needs replacing. Our technicians can install a new thermostat and teach you about upgrading your home to a smart thermostat to save energy if you are interested. 

Other elements that might need repair or replacement depending on the age of your heater are the motor, and control board, and evaporator coils. Our East Bay HVAC professionals can quickly diagnose and fix any problems so you will feel cozy and safe during the chilly winter weather.
