Local Heating System Repairs In San Antonio

It’s finally happened. After waiting for several weeks for winter to finally arrive, the San Antonio weather has gone from hot to warm to freezing — and it’s time to turn on your heating system for the first time in eight or nine months. You go to the thermostat, flip the switch and … nothing.

Here at Roadrunner Plumbing, we get it. That’s a horrible feeling for any homeowner to experience, and it can be more than just uncomfortable, depending on the temperature. We need heat to survive. It’s exactly why Roadrunner is open 24 hours a day Monday through Saturday to handle heater repair calls when you need us most.

Common Heating Repair Issues

What’s actually going on that’s preventing your heater from warming your home? It depends. There could be any number of issues causing heating repair San Antonio homeowners might face. Here are just a few of the most common red flags to watch (and listen or smell) for:

  • Short cycling – Short cycling is the term for a system turning on and off over and over again before it ever completes a full heating cycle. This might be a sign of an issue with the pilot light, which your system uses to burn natural gas and produce heat. If the pilot light isn’t working properly, your furnace could repeatedly turn on and off. Any pilot light issues should be handled by a furnace repair professional.
  • Unusual noises – If your heater is making more noise than producing warm air, something is going on. This might be an easy problem to notice to anyone who is paying attention, but you should trust professionals to inspect and find the issue.
  • Thermostat issues – The thermostat is the brain of your heating system, but not all issues with it require a call to the experts. Sometimes you just accidentally put your thermostat on the wrong setting — like turning the fan to “On” instead of “Auto.” That’s a simple enough fix with the touch of a finger. Other thermostat problems aren’t so simple. If it’s broken, you’re going to feel the consequences inside your home and need to call Roadrunner to have it looked at.
  • Strange smells – Unusual smells are worrisome, but it’s important to remember that Dirty Sock Syndrome is a real thing. When you turn on your heater for the first time in a long time, there’s likely going to be a strange smell that’s often compared to the smell of dirty socks. This is lint, dirt and debris burning off the system’s coils. The smell should go away within a few minutes. If it doesn’t, that could be a sign of a real heating repair issue.
  • Mechanical problems – Whether it’s the compressor, heat exchange, motor or something else, your heater is a complex machine. A thorough inspection will likely be required to find the problem and come up with the best solution for you.
