SMS is Keeping Decatur, Alabama, Toasty Warm This Winter

Even though the residents of lovely Decatur, Alabama, spend their summers dealing with temperatures that often hit the high 90s, that doesn’t change the fact that winter is fast approaching with its much colder temperatures in tow. Though Alabama may not be feeling the cold just yet, Decatur residents don’t want to wait until they need their heating system to find out that it isn’t working properly.

Common Heating Problems and Maintenance Solutions

  • Poor or Uneven Air Flow: If you find your entire family clustered in one room on a cold winter night, than your home’s heating system has most likely failed to properly provide heat equally to each room. This is often the result of an obstruction or a leak within the ducts. Our technicians will carefully clean out the ducts and seal them properly so that a normal flow of heated air will resume throughout the home.
  • Ignition-Control Failure: Depending on the type of ignition that your heating system contains, failure may occur due to loose connections, a faulty control module, a change in the electric current or a broken spark electrode. Regardless of what causes the problem, it can result in either no heat at all or heat during intermittent periods of time. Fortunately, we can fix all of these things with a simple furnace repair.
  • Faulty Thermostat: It’s never fun to turn on your heating system only to find that it simply refuses to do anything. When this happens, most people fear the worst and call for heating repair in a hurry. Our technicians will check your thermostat first because it is often the culprit, and we can easily solve the problem with a quick repair or replacement of the thermostat.
