What’s Wrong With Your Blower Motor?

Monday, November 8th, 2021

Don’t think we forgot about all the heat pump and furnace owners in our area. If you’re the owner of a forced-air heating system, then this blog post is specifically designed to help target a problem that we see all the time. We’re going to focus on issues with a blower motor, one of the integral components of a heating system that uses hot air to heat a home.

When the heat is produced for the air in your heating system, it needs to be distributed to the rest of your home via your air ducts. A large blower motor is responsible for this, as it pushes the air throughout the ducts into each of your home’s rooms. If your blower motor isn’t working properly, we’ll help figure out what the problem is.

While people might think because combustion is occuring, that gas furnaces are dangerous pieces of equipment, it’s simply not as true as you’d think.

Why Your Heater Is Making Odd Noises

Monday, December 10th, 2018

woman covering her ears, imposed on a white backgroundA heating system may break down with little to no warning at all. It will go from seemingly operating “just fine” throughout the day and night to suddenly halting, or just not turning on at all. This is uncommon, particularly if you had fall maintenance. Even with that tune-up though, unless there’s a sudden electrical failure, a furnace or heating system usually gives off some sign it’s about to fail.

Often, this sign is a loud and/or unfamiliar noise. It may be accompanied by some unusual performance from your heating system, but this isn’t always the case. We don’t encourage you to try to repair the system on your own, but at least you can be prepared with what might be going on, before you call a pro for expert heater repair in Alameda, CA.
