How to Troubleshoot Heater Issues

Getting a good review from a customer brings with it a great satisfactory feeling especially since his concern is typical this time of the year when most need heater repair.
Here are a few tips to prevent heater problems in the future but if these are too much for you to handle, call a heater repair Laguna Hills expert to do it for you:
Yearly Maintenance. Vacuum the area around your heater blower at least once a year. Clean the fan blades with a toothbrush followed by the brush attachment of the vacuum cleaner. It is also recommended that you place two to three drops of non-detergent motor oil into the ports which are near the motor shaft to lubricate it properly.
Gas Leak. Turn off the gas supply valve by rotating it one-quarter turn using a wrench. Immediately evacuate your house and call the gas utility or fire department afterward if you smell or suspect any gas leak.
Furnace with Pilot Light. Turn off the switch or the circuit breaker of the furnace before clearing the clogged pilot orifice with a thin wire.
Electronic Ignition Furnace. Reset the ignition control module by turning the thermostat down or turning the power on and off. Afterward, clean the flame sensor of your heater using emory paper. Once done, listen for the sound of the spark or watch until the hot surface ignitor glows.
