Here are some symptoms as to why your gas heater may need a repair:
- A yellow or sooty coloured flame is being produced.
- The pilot light extinguishes when it shouldn’t.
- A pop noise comes from the pilot light when started.
- Heat damage is visible on the heater components.
- Walls become soot stained near the heater.
- The heater seems to lose heat control and stays hot when turned down.
The need for gas heater repairs
Gas heater parts suffer wear and tear over time and it is common for parts to be replaced during regular service and maintenance. These proactive repairs add to the cost of the service but they prevent more expensive repairs from occurring in the future as well as reducing the potential for more dangerous faults to develop.
Dangerous faults can occur when gas heaters are neglected and this is why manufacturers recommend regular gas heater servicing of their products. You can find servicing advice in the owner’s manual for your gas heater or gas log fire and it is best to follow that advice to ensure a safe operating environment.
A precise gas heater repair is important
Precision and experience are important when it comes to gas heater repairs and for safety reasons, they must be performed as per the manufacturer’s instructions. Carbon monoxide is a dangerous gas that can be emitted from a gas heater or gas log fire that has not been repaired properly, so always look for a technician that has the relevant license or permit to service your heater.
