Especially in mild cities like Ball, our heaters might not see any action until well into the winter season. Yet, our systems are just like any others in the country, and they experience problems. When you’re facing heater repairs this winter, don’t underestimate your heater’s health simply because we see warm temperatures!
Ball Heating & Air Conditioning has some tips and tricks to operating your heater successfully in an area with mild winters. Even the smallest malfunction can have major consequences on other parts of your HVAC system, like your indoor air quality.

Why Does My Heater Break Down In Winter?
Many homeowners wonder why their heaters tend to break down right when they’re needed the most. It seems like heaters should be able to carry you through winter with no problems, right? While your heater is designed to perform in the winter, there are several things that make it difficult for the heater to function.
Sudden Temperature Changes
The most common struggle for our heaters in Ball is sudden changes in demand. We all know that our winter days could be in the 70s or a cold front could push it down into the 50s. It’s not so difficult for us to switch between hot and cold, but our HVAC systems can struggle under the strain of high heat demands right after high cooling demands.
A good principle to follow is to never set your thermostat more than 20 degrees above the temperature outside.
If a cold blast hits Ball, it’s more likely that you’ll need to use your heater every day. If your heater hasn’t been used for nine months of the year, the sudden demand can cause problems. Dirty heating elements can struggle to produce heat, ignition points can be faulty and a number of other sensors could fail.
When Should You Schedule Heating Repairs?
Some homeowners might think that it’s best to just wait until the end of the winter season to schedule heater repairs on their system. Even if your repair is non-emergency, you should definitely have a professional assess your system as soon as you notice a problem. You don’t want a minor repair to turn into a total system failure just because you waited an extra couple of months.
The great thing about working with the Ball team is that you can always expect an honest, transparent recommendation before we agree on any course of action. This gives you the time and knowledge to decide what solution is best for your home and budget.
If you suspect there’s something wrong with your heater, don’t wait.
