How To Know When Your Home Heater Needs Repairs?
Furnaces and heaters can develop many different problems. Some of them can actually be dangerous.
Be sure to call Walker if you notice any of these heating issues:
- Strange smells – If you smell gas, this could be an emergency situation.
- Yellow Pilot Light – This can indicate a carbon monoxide leak. Call us right away for furnace maintenance.
- Tripped Carbon-Monoxide Detector – This is a potentially dangerous situation. It requires emergency repair.
- Air Doesn’t Get Warm Enough – If you notice your heater working harder than normal to heat your home, you may have a ductwork leak or some other problem.
- Strange Noises – Most furnaces make sounds, especially when they first turn on. But continuous loud noises are not normal and should be inspected.
- Respiratory Issues – In the colder months, poor air flow can cause coughing, wheezing, and other respiratory problems. A simple repair could improve your home’s air quality.
- High Energy Bills – Are your energy bills much higher than usual? Your heat pump compressor may have a problem.
How Cold Does It Actually Get In East Texas?
Contrary to popular belief, East Texas winters do get cold.
The coldest night ever recorded in Tyler was -0.8°F on December 23, 1989, according to ClimateSpy.com.
Most winters in Smith County are not that severe. But we do experience freezing temperatures almost every year.
And on those cold nights when your heating system stops working, we want you to know that you have a HVAC repair company nearby ready to help—day or night!
What’s The Difference between A Furnace And A Heat Pump?
There are three important differences between a furnace and a heat pump:
1. A heat pump runs on electricity, while a furnace runs on gas.
So typically, if you own a heat pump, your electric bill may run a little higher than it will with a furnace. If you own a furnace, you’ll have a higher gas bill.
2. Heat pumps are generally considered to be safer than furnaces.
That’s because furnaces run on gas, which means there is a carbon monoxide risk.
3. Heat pumps can both heat and cool your home.
In the summer, the heat pump will cool your house by removing the hot air from inside your house. If you have a heat pump, you probably don’t need an air conditioner. But if you have a furnace, you’ll need both.

Before You Call Try These Quick Fixes…
Check Your Thermostat
Make sure your thermostat is set to HEAT.
And we know it seems so obvious, but (1) we’ve done it (yes, even us!) and (2) we’ve “fixed” lots of heating units simply by turning them on. 😉
It’s better to double-check than to pay us to do it for you!
Check Your Air Filter
A dirty air filter can cause all sorts of heater problems, including causing the furnace to overheat and shut down.
The good news is that checking your air filter is quick and easy. Most heating units are located in a closet inside your home. You can access your filter via a knob or handle that you will likely find toward the bottom of the unit.
If your filter is a medium gray color, then it’s time to replace it. Because not all filters are the same size, you’ll want to check the size on the side of the filter before heading to Lowe’s, Home Depot, or Amazon.
FYI: If you frequently forget to change your filter, you can schedule automatic filter shipments from Amazon at an interval of your choosing (in most cases, every 2-3 months works great).
Check The Circuit Breaker
A power spike may have tripped its circuit breaker. Even if you have a gas furnace, they still require electricity.
Go to your electrical panel and check the breaker. Does it look like the breaker has tripped? Turn it to the OFF position. Now turn it back to the ON position.
If the breaker trips again, contact us immediately!
A team member will be out to inspect the problem and get you going again.
