Residential Heating System Installation
Central heating systems are the most common setup for residential applications.
There are two types of setup for a central heating system, the horizontal installation and the vertical installation.
Normally these setups come with the air conditioning system as well. The heater or also known as the furnace, goes together with the evaporator coil, which is connected to the condenser, usually located in the backyard.
A horizontal setup is usually located in the attic, and the vertical setup is installed in a closet within the house or in the garage.
Central Heating Repair
Here are some of the most common repairs for your heating system.
We think this can help you save some money, because they are very simple and they are very common, specially if you just moved into you new home.
If your heating system sounds like is starting, you can hear the sparking and the inducer motor, but still blowing cold air, before you call your local contractor, check the gas valve and make sure is on.
This is the most common problem with families that just moved into their new house, so save yourself some time and money and check the gas valve first.
In a vertical setup is usually located right next to the furnace within the closet or in the garage.
If you happen to have a horizontal setup, the gas valve is going to be in the attic area. Most of the time is right above to furnace.
Another common repair with families that just moved in, is when the heating system is not working at all, but this is usually an easy fix.
Sometimes the realtor and even the gas company disconnect the furnace from the electrical outlet (specially in vertical applications) or in some cases they turn the breaker off.
So, before you call your local contractor or technician, check all your electrical connections.
Even if you been living in your house for some time, always check the electrical breaker and make sure that is on.
But if you don’t have any experience on how to check the electrical breakers, do yourself a favor and call your local contractor or technician, the last thing we want, is you getting hurt.
