WHAT IS NORMAL OPERATION OF DUCTED HEATER?

DUCTED GAS HEATING COMMON ISSUES AND PROBLEMS

Startup

  1. Ensure the gas isolation valve at the heater is turned on.
  2. Turn the Thermostat to the ON position.
  3. Set the Thermostat to above room temperature.
  4. The heater is now in automatic mode. After a short period of time, the room fan will commence blowing warm air through the vents. 
  5. Set the room thermostat to the desired temperature. When the Set room temperature is reached the burners will turn off. The room fan will continue to run (about 2 minutes ) to extract all the heat from the heat exchanger.

  If you’ve noticed that it takes Heater too long to Startup, or it’s blowing cold air only  - might be there is a problem and it’s a good idea to get it checked by a Licenced Technician.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS - FAQ :

DUCTED GAS HEATING COMMON ISSUES AND PROBLEMS

Q. How often should the heater be serviced?
A. All manufacturers recommend the heater is serviced every 2-3 years to ensure it operates at peak efficiency

Q. Why burning smell coming from the heater?
A. There could be several reasons. If you're using your heater for the first time in a while it could be just dust that has accumulated over the months and now burning off by the furnace. This smell should disappear quickly, but If the smell does not go away in a short time, It’s an indication that the unit requires the attention of a Licensed Technician.

Q. How much does it cost to run my heater?
A. The cost of running a heater varies depending on the design of your house, i.e. window coverings, insulation, floor coverings, ceiling height, outlet/return air location, and running time.

Q. There is no air coming out of some of the vents.
A. Most likely that this is a ductwork-related issue, especially if you have zoning. Check ducts for any blockage or damage.

Q. How can I reduce the running cost of my heater?
A. Cost can be reduced in the following ways: Turn the heater off when heating is not required. Install insulation in the ceiling and walls. Seal gaps around doorways and windows. Make sure the return air and optional filter are clean. Reduce the “set” temperature.

Q. Can a filter be fitted to my return air?
A. Yes, but - ensure the existing grille is compatible with airflow requirements. In most cases, a larger grille must be installed to compensate for airflow restriction

  • Hassan Aljofan

    Excellent service

  • Terence Yeh

    When my tenant reported that the cooling unit is not working, the first company came and quoted $3,200 to replace the entire system. I sought Serge's advice on the unit and sent him out for a second opinion. I was very pleasantly surprised that the unit was repairable and the total bill was $259.50 - a massive saving indeed! Highly recommended.

  • Mary Bashucky

    Serge was very professional very pleasant and personable. He explained everything that he did and why. He showed me photos to help explain what he’d done and why. He answered all my questions and explained why he hadn’t done some things.
    This is my first experience with ducted heating and Serge patiently explained it all to me simply so I could easily understand.
    And price was extremely reasonable.
    I highly recommend him for any and all gas service.

    Serge was excellent. Quick response and lots of communication when I had to change the time agreed. The repair was an old unit and he showed me everything he was doing all the way through - and fixed what I thought was going to be a replacement job!
