    Atlanta Heater & Furnace Repair

    PV Heating, Cooling & Plumbing has you covered for every furnace repair or heater repair problem.

    Rule: If your furnace is going to break, it likely won’t pick a convenient time to do so. Before fishing out the space heaters and electric blankets, call on PV Heating, Cooling & Plumbing to identify the problem and apply the best fix.

    We can identify and heat pump and furnace repair issues like:
    • Dirty burners, blower motors, and flame sensors
    • Too much gas getting to the equipment
    • Broken parts, including capacitors, heat strips, starting components, and draft inducers
    • A furnace blower that’s not working
    • One heating zone that isn’t working, even when the other ones are
    • Cracked heat exchangers that leak carbon monoxide (CO) and create a dangerous indoor air quality hazard
    Our technicians complete over 125 hours of training each year. That’s a lot more than your run-of-the-mill furnace repair contractor! It’s why our team can handle a lot more than your standard “break/fix” furnace issues.

    We can show you:
    • Problems that present as a home heating repair but might not be – such as uneven heating among rooms, duct leakage, and airflow problems
    • How to solve air infiltration problems, such as overly dry air and drafty areas of your home
    • Ways to increase indoor humidity during the dry winter months, with or without installing any new equipment
    • Potential sources of carbon monoxide leakage, which could be a much bigger problem than not having heat

    What kind of heating system do you have? Here’s how to tell.

    Here in Atlanta, there are two primary central heating system types: natural gas furnaces and electric heat pumps. Not sure what you’ve got?

    Here’s how to tell the difference:
    • Furnaces burn natural gas. You’ll have a gas line that’s connected to the system. During the winter, your natural gas bill will be much higher since you’re burning more fuel to heat your home.
    • Electric heat pumps work a lot like air conditioners but in reverse. In winter, a heat pump removes heat from the air outdoors and forces that heat into your home. On really cold days, your thermostat will engage “emergency” or “auxiliary” heat (aka, heat strips) to keep your home warm.

    At PV Heating, Cooling & Plumbing, we provide heater repair and furnace repair for any type of system found in Metro Atlanta homes.

    Common Furnace Problems and Solutions

    1. Ignition or Pilot Control Issues

    If your furnace is not igniting or staying lit, it could be due to a faulty ignition or pilot control. This can lead to intermittent heating or no heating at all. Our technicians can diagnose and repair this issue promptly.

    2. Lack of Maintenance

    Regular maintenance is crucial for the efficient operation of your furnace. Lack of maintenance can lead to dirty filters, reduced airflow, and increased wear and tear on components. We offer maintenance services to keep your furnace running smoothly.

    3. Thermostat Malfunction

    A malfunctioning thermostat can cause your furnace to cycle improperly or not turn on at all. Our technicians can check and calibrate your thermostat to ensure it is functioning correctly.

    4. Noisy Operation

    Unusual noises such as banging, rattling, or squealing coming from your furnace can indicate a mechanical problem. Our team can inspect and repair any issues to prevent further damage.

    5. Airflow Problems

    Restricted airflow can lead to reduced heating efficiency and uneven heating in your home. Our technicians can inspect and clean your ductwork to ensure proper airflow and heating distribution.

    Furnace repair is just part of a larger picture

    Much of the time, furnace repair is as much about education and integrity as it is about fixing broken equipment. The more you know about HVAC, the better the choices you make about equipment and maintenance. And the more honest your contractor, well…

    At PV Heating, Cooling & Plumbing, we believe in fixing the real issue, not just putting a band-aid on a festering problem. When possible, we show you how to prevent future furnace failures. That way, you avoid future heater repairs, save money, and improve comfort for the long term.
