Heating Repair Services in and Around San Diego County

Residents of San Diego, CA, don’t use heat as much as they use ventilation and air conditioning. However, from November to March, temperatures drop into the 50s and sometimes as low as the 40s. So, it’s still important to inspect your heating unit for signs of damage, and if you notice something is off, you can count on the skilled experts at Carini for professional heating repair services.

Symptoms of A Malfunctioning Heating System

  • Loud Noises: If your system emits a loud, thumping sound, it may be time for a furnace repair. This noise is frequently caused by unbalanced blower wheels. If you hear a metallic scraping sound, that’s bad news, as it means the blower is so loose that it’s hitting against the unit’s housing as it rotates, potentially causing damage.
  • Unusually High Heating Bills: After many years with the same furnace installation, you should have a good idea of what your heating bill will look like going into each cold season. If your power bill is sky high and you don’t know why, it could be your aging heater.
  • Frequent Cycling: Can you hear the furnace kicking on and off frequently throughout the day? If so, perhaps your filter is clogged, or maybe your thermostat is having issues. Excessive cycling will jack up your power bill and run the system more often than necessary.
  • Poor Airflow: The most common cause of bad airflow is a clogged filter, as mentioned above. It’s essential to clean the air filter frequently to avoid costly furnace repairs as much as possible. If your filter is clear and you still have airflow issues, contact Carini for professional heating repair services.
  • Inaccurate Thermostat: If your heating system is not working properly, don’t jump the gun by scheduling a heating furnace repair without inspecting further, first. Your thermostat may have malfunctioned due to a blown fuse or faulty wiring. Make sure the issue isn’t as simple as a tripped circuit breaker before seeking the help of a heating repair service provider.
  • Unpleasant Odors It’s important to understand how to identify smells that may be the result of an issue within your heating system. A burning smell is a huge red flag, obviously. A must smell is less alarming, but could be a sign of mold somewhere in the system.

Carini Services and Repairs All Major Furnace Brands in San Diego County, CA

Whether you need a gas furnace repair or a wall heater repair, Carini has experience working with all of the most common heating systems used throughout the United States. Each manufacturer focuses on similar performance categories, measured by an industry standard annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE). AFUE is the ratio of annual heat output of the furnace when compared to the total annual energy used by the particular furnace unit. If you have an extremely old system with a low AFUE rating, a heating furnace repair may not be enough to fix your problem — you could need a new unit. You can count on Carini anytime you need heating repair services.
