Call it Murphy’s law: the heat only goes out when you really, really need it to work. Two a.m. in the middle of a harsh Manhattan winter is no time for your gas heater to decide it’s had enough – but that does seem to be the time we get the most calls for emergency gas heater repair.
People often apologize when they call us for emergency gas heater repair. They say things like “I’m sorry to call you out in the middle of the night!” We’d like to take this moment to say no apology is required. We want you to have heat in your homes! This is especially true for families who have children or elderly family members: when it’s too cold for too long, they are the most vulnerable.
If you’re worried now about your heat going out during the winter, there are a few things you can do to give yourself peace of mind. The first is to have your gas heater serviced. Service is like a check up for your home heating system. Our technicians will check over your gas heater, make sure all of the nozzles and connections are clean and properly configured. For best results a gas heater needs to burn the fuel cleanly and efficiently. This saves you money and is also much safer for your family.
During an emergency gas heater repair call, our first job is to determine why the heater’s not working. This can include checking the pilot light and gas valve; other areas of concern can be the thermostat controls. Filters, blowers, and registers can all get clogged. Blower belts and thermocouplers are other potential problems. Our experienced team can quickly identify and fix gas heater problems. We work on all makes and models of gas heaters.
If your heat goes out, don’t delay. Call for emergency gas heater repair right away. Staying warm is important!
