Here are some of the most common central heating problems homeowners face.

Loss Of Heat

Complete or partial loss of heat is the most common and most obvious issue relating to central heating. From issues with the gas supply to thermostat malfunctions, many different factors can lead to the issue of loss of heat. Since this is the most apparent issue regarding heating, it’s always best to seek professional assistance for the issue (or issues) to get resolved as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Pilot Light Issues

In order for your home’s central heating to work as it’s meant to, the pilot light has to be continually lit. If upon checking the pilot light, you notice that it’s not strong enough, then you’ve found the issue. A blue flame is a strong flame, while yellow flames are weak. So, if your pilot light is a weak yellow flame, you should contact Omega Electrical. Pilot light issues may point to issues with the gas supply. Weak pilot lights can lead to dangerous situations such as high levels of carbon monoxide within your home. So, if you’d like to stay warm, comfortable and safe this winter, contact Omega Electrical!
