A few weeks ago, I noticed a funny sound when I turned on my central heating. I didn’t think much of it at the time, but little did I know that this was a warning sign of a bigger problem to come. A few days later, I went to turn on the central heating, and only a little bit of air would come out of my vents. There was something wrong with that was preventing the system from blowing the air. I checked the pilot light, and it was still lit. I contacted a company for HVAC repair in NYC, because I wasn’t able to tell what the problem was just by looking at the system.
Having a central heating system that doesn’t function in the middle of winter isn’t a good experience. This happened to me once when I was a kid. A bad snow storm knocked out the power at my parent’s house, and the central heating wouldn’t turn on. We were freezing the entire time and trying to stay warm by wearing lots of layers of clothes and wrapping ourselves in as many blankets as we could find. Back then, I wished that we had a fireplace as a backup heating source, and I did again this time, because my home doesn’t have one.
Luckily for me, the company was able to come out to my home and look at my central heating system to figure out what was causing it to only blow out a little air. The problem was actually the motor in the system. It had stopped working and needed to be replaced with a new one. The repair man from the company was able to put the new motor in quickly and my central heating was back to blowing out hot air at full force.
