5 Common Lubbock Heating Problems

It’s around the winter months when I receive calls pertaining to the five most common Lubbock heating problems. As you know, January is our coolest month. However, you probably turned on your heating system as soon as dipped into the 20 degrees. That doesn’t mean that one of the Lubbock heating problems can’t occur at any time during the winter season. If your heating stops working properly, you want to identify the problem as quickly as you can to determine how to fix it.

Electric Heating Problems

1. No Heat

Sometimes the temperature setting won’t match the temperature in the house. For example, the temperature is set at 80 degrees, but the thermostat shows 50 degrees. Check the thermostat’s battery and setting. You may want to check the breaker or fuse. Check the filter to make sure it’s not clogged.

3. Constant On and Off Heat Cycles

like a clogged filter or need to adjust the blower.

4. Furnace Won’t Turn On

There are a few reasons why this is one of the common Lubbock heating problems. There’s a blown fuse or breaker. If this isn’t the problem, turn off the unit for a couple minutes then turn it back on. You’ll have to do the same thing if the furnace’s motor is overload. Keep the unit off for about 30 minutes then reset the unit.

5. Blower Continuously Runs

One of the common Lubbock Heating problems can be a big problem if you’re trying to save on your utility bills. The blower is not supposed to continuously run. If you notice this happening, switch the thermostat from the ON position to the AUTO or OFF position. Wait about three seconds and register it to the new setting. It should turn off.

Gas Heating Problems

1. Equipment Malfunction

2. Furnace Turns on and Shuts Off Quickly

This problem occurs when it doesn’t properly heat up the house because it comes on then goes off. This problem could be cause by the thermostat’s heat anticipator, dirty filter or blower motor problems.

3. Loud Noises

When you hear a high-pitched nose coming from the unit that means the shaft bearings may need oiling. If that’s not the problem then the blower’s belt may have slipped. A low-pitched sound could be the gas burners are dirty or you need to adjust the pilot light.

4. Inefficient Heat

You could need to replace the filter.

5. Blower
