Common Issues Found During The Cold Season

Updated: Dec 11, 2019

Southwest Air Conditioning tuning in again with some information for your benefit. The El Paso weather can sometimes feel like a piece of a puzzle that just doesn't fit correctly. From blistering heat to extreme colds sometimes even in the same day. It leaves us wondering how to dress, and whether to stay in or go out. This inconsistency shouldn't extend to the temperatures in your home. In this post, we will focus on some common heating system issues that can occur when your heater is in use.

If you experience any of the following issues this cold season, be sure to give us a call:

Inconsistent Heating

We all know just how puzzling and inconsistent the El Paso weather can be, but these inconsistencies do not mean your heater should follow suit. The change in your home is felt almost immediately when your heater goes from blowing warm comfortable air to cold air. No one wants to wake up shivering from the cold or having to stay warm with extra heavy blankets. Several things could cause your heater to be inconsistent such as using a dirty filter, which can be remedied with a simple cleaning or filter replacement. Other issues could be due to a faulty gas valve, air handler or more. All of which most certainly require calling an HVAC professional like the ones here at Southwest Air Conditioning. Give us a call and we can diagnose and fix the issues correctly.


No Heat

If you experience this common issue where your heater isn't producing warm air, then a number of things could be wrong. To begin, we'd recommend checking your thermostat to ensure it is working properly. Other potential issues could again be a faulty gas valve, ignitor, heat pump or more. Any of these again, most certainly require calling an HVAC professional like the ones here at Southwest Air Conditioning. Our HVAC Experts will assess the issues and fix them correctly.

Carbon Monoxide Leak

Carbon monoxide leaks are nothing to play around with, they can be found in old and new systems alike. We always recommend having a carbon monoxide detector in your home, and that your heater is checked regularly, as a leak can be odorless, tasteless and colorless, and could potentially lead to a death. If you even suspect a carbon monoxide leak, don't wait call an HVAC Professional immediately. Do not use the system, if possible turn it off and vent the home with open windows and doors. If any emergency make sure to call emergency personnel.
