Heating Services in Corpus Christi, TX
Your central heater is a huge part of your comfort and safety during the colder months of the year. Keeping it maintained and running well is essential to not only a warm home, but to energy efficiency, fewer repairs, and the life of your system. Temperature Humidity Air Quality Solutions (THAQ) has been providing exceptional heating services in Corpus Christi, TX, for almost 50 years. Whether you’d like to get a new furnace installed, are considering a heat pump, or your existing unit needs repair, we’re here for you!
When it’s time for a new heater, keep in mind that the most crucial factor is the way the system is installed. This step is even more important than the type of heater (gas furnace, heat pump, geothermal, etc.), its brand, and energy efficiency rating. If your heater is too small for your home, you’ll wind up with higher energy bills because the unit can’t keep up with the power demand. A heater that is too large will turn on and off a lot, also resulting in inefficiency and a home that isn’t well heated. To select and install the appropriate model for your home, a professional must perform something called a Manual J load calculation. This is a set of measurements that take into account many features of your home — not only square footage. Some of these factors include the direction your home faces, the number of windows, the number of family members, what type of insulation your house has, and the material from which your home is built (such as brick, for example).
By installing a furnace that has the correct heating capacity, you’ll be comfortable all winter long. You’ll also get maximum energy efficiency that translates into lower utility bills. Longer life of your system is another benefit. The techs at Temperature Humidity Air Quality Solutions will take the time to install your new heater safely and adequately. We’ll also check that the airflow is consistent throughout your home and ensure that your ductwork is tightly sealed.
Heating services aren’t only vital when your system fails. Proactive heater repair begins earlier in the season before you even turn on your furnace or heat pump. Many units break down or struggle not because of the increased heating demand in the winter but because of not being prepared for continuous use after being idle all summer. As surprising as it sounds, the most common cause of furnace failure is a dirty or clogged filter! Dirty filters make your heater work harder by creating resistance. Over time, the condition of chronic overwork leads to components breaking — especially when moving parts are dirty, unlubricated, or worn. Other common causes of furnace breakdowns include pilot light failure or electrical problems, a clogged or worn blower motor, issues with the fuel supply (electric or gas), or a broken thermostat. An HVAC inspection and tune-up in autumn can save you a ton of money and hassle by catching problems early.
Indications Your Furnace or Heat Pump Needs Repair
- Your furnace or heat pump is producing only a low level of heat or no heat at all. An issue in your ducting may be to blame. Sometimes a malfunctioning thermostat is a culprit.
- The unit has been starting and stopping a lot. While it’s normal for your furnace to run in cycles, it shouldn’t be short cycling. Short cycling indicates a dirty heat sensor or a failing fan motor. Sometimes a unit does this because it wasn’t correctly installed as we mentioned above.
- You’ve noticed excessive moisture around your home. A cracked heat exchanger can cause this. This component consists of a set of tubes or coils inside your furnace that get hot by burning fuel. It’s the part responsible for heating the air. A blocked vent can also lead to high humidity.
- If your furnace’s pilot light is any color besides blue, that’s a bad sign. A yellow flame indicates incomplete combustion. If the natural gas isn’t being burned completely, excess carbon monoxide is released. If the flame is bright orange, this means that too much gas is feeding the fire. Both CO and natural gas accumulation are extremely dangerous. When your furnace’s flame is anything but blue, turn off your system. Open the windows and call a certified HVAC tech right away. Installing a carbon monoxide detector will alert you of issues like this in the future.
- Your gas or electric bill has suddenly spiked, although your energy usage hasn’t changed. Check your filter and replace it if indicated. If it’s in good condition, there may be a problem inside the ducting or with vents. Sometimes high energy consumption is a sign that your furnace or heat pump is nearing the end of its life.
- If your unit is operating noisily or making strange sounds, it may be a symptom of loose parts inside or that the blower fan belt needs to be replaced.
