Heat Strip Replacement
If your home has a heat pump, you should be aware that you should avoid using the emergency heat setting on your thermostat unless it is absolutely necessary. You may have been warned not to use it because it uses the heat strips to provide heat to your home, which is considerably less efficient than the normal operation of your heat pump. Although you shouldn’t have to choose the emergency heat setting on your thermostat, it is alright for your heat pump to use the heat strips every now and then. There is a lot to know about heat strip replacement in your Hattiesburg, MS home. Yoder’s Heat & Air, LLC will be more than happy to share our knowledge with you. Call us today at 601-707-8961.
About Heat Strips
Most heating units use heat strips as their primary source of heat. The blower of the air handler moves the air into the duct system across the wire coil. If the fan fails to turn on quick enough, the heat strip’s element turns red hot. If that element stays hot long enough or turns on enough times, the element will eventually burn into two pieces.
To replace or test the heat strip, it is recommended that an experienced professional takes on that task, for safety reasons. Working with live electricity can put anyone at a high risk of potentially getting hurt in some way. So the more experience and knowledge, the better.
Regular maintenance is key to keeping your heating system functioning properly for a longer amount of time. Trust the pros at Yoder’s to set a schedule for regular maintenance for your systems to ensure the comfort of your home all year round.
