Heating Repair & Replacement in Newport News VA

York County Heating

One of our customers called us with a problem that happens to more than a few homeowners. After turning on their heater for the first time since the previous winter in their home in Newport News, their heating system began to put out a burning smell. Alarmed, they shut it down immediately and called us here at Atlantic. We responded quickly and drove to their home. Our technician was soon able to relieve the homeowners of their worry. Rather than something more serious, it was simply the smell of burning dust. When a heater is not in consistent use, over a period of time, dust will collect on the heating elements. When the heater is turned on for the first time after a significant period of time, this dust will burn and give off a strong burning smell.

Rather than being irritated by the fact that they had called a professional plumber and heating repair specialist for a minor problem, they were relieved that the problem was so small. That’s the right attitude to have, because when a burning smell occurs, it might not always be a minor problem.

If You Need Heating Repair Services in Newport News VA, Call Atlantic Today

If you live in the area surrounding Newport News VA, a heating problem can quickly be diagnosed by one of our skilled technicians. Burning smells are often indicators of much more serious problems that can do damage to your heating system. For instance, if your burners are blocked or clogged with soot and debris, you might smell a burning smell followed by a loud pop or bank. That pop or bang is actually a small explosion that occurs if gas backs up and is ignited. These small explosions can do some real damage to your heater.

Even if you don’t live near Newport News, our heating recommendation may help save you some money. Remember to always schedule a yearly cleaning and inspection of your system. Also, whether or not you live nearby or far away from Newport News, professionals, like our plumbers at Atlantic, should always address a heating problem.
