Warm Air Repairs

Warm air heating systems pass cool air through a heat exchanger, usually powered by gas or electricity. The installation of warm air systems was very popular, if not trendy, in the 1970s. Although over the years, most have been replaced with water-filled radiators.

Warm Air Heating systems warm your property by distributing heated air into rooms through hidden vents located in walls or ceilings. Once the air gets hot, it is circulated into rooms through vents positioned in the floor, walls, or ceiling. This design eliminates the need for bulky wall-hung radiators, making rooms more spacious. If the system is powered by gas, a boiler is typically used to warm the air. Although the system has been around for some time, a large number of properties still use this method.

However, one drawback of a warm air system is the lack of flexibility, making it difficult to expand it if needed. Whether using a gas-powered or oil-powered unit, a well-designed and installed warm air system can provide efficient and consistent heating for any property. The pioneers who brought innovative warmth to homes, like Johnson and Starley, have revolutionised how we think about central heating.

Annual boiler servicing is critical to maintaining a safe and efficient heating system in your home or office building.

So, staying updated with the ever-changing ventilation regulations and adhering to the latest standards is crucial to ensure optimal boiler efficiency. Regular maintenance checks can identify issues early on and ensure your system complies with safety regulations. Whether you have a gas, oil, or central heating unit, hiring a professional to inspect your boiler and radiators can extend their lifespan and prevent expensive repairs in the future.

If you’re looking to install a new unit or replace an old one, it’s essential to work with a licensed professional, so you can ensure the installation is done correctly. Don’t underestimate the importance of boiler servicing, and call a professional today to guarantee your family’s safety and comfort.

There are various types of warm air heating systems, including gas-fired, ground-source heat pumps, air-source heat pumps, and hybrid heat pumps.

Gas-fired heating system
This heating system warms outside air by consuming gas and then distributing the warm air throughout the house via ducts, vents, or openings.

Ground-source heat pump
This pump taps into the earth’s warmth using underground pipes, and air can be heated and disbursed to homes via pipes, possibly with closed-loop and open-loop systems.

Air-source heat pump
This pump can extract warmth from the outside air to supply heating and hot water, regardless of temperatures as low as –15°C.

Hybrid heat pump
These pumps are compatible with gas boilers and can switch between conventional and sustainable fuels, facilitating reduced carbon emissions.

Heating hot water with warm air heating

The majority of those who use warm air heating are happy with the system. The system can warm rooms quickly, operate quietly and is conducive to simpler room layouts due to the absence of radiators. However, some individuals may experience draughts and dust particles being dispersed throughout the house and problems with temperature control.

For the best performance, all draughts must be addressed, and all the outlet grills must be correctly positioned. A reliable air filter should be enough to extract dust from the air (check to see if the filter needs cleaning).

If you are experiencing problems with your warm air unit, you are on the right page. Due to the lack of demand, there aren’t many gas engineers who hold a warm air certificate. However, at serviceteam, we have qualified warm air engineers who can repair and service your unit; happy days!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is the best option – repair or replace a warm air heating system?

Gas or electric boilers are needed for hot water and heating in any household. As with any unit, they will need repairs and maintenance over time. When determining if a new boiler installation is necessary, there are numerous factors to consider, i.e., the boiler’s age, the number of breakdowns over past years and the cost of the breakdowns; it all mounts up! Another repair or replacement part won’t guarantee other parts won’t fail anytime soon.

Rather than throwing good money at an unreliable system, upgrading to a more efficient ‘A’-rated system is worth considering. An efficient boiler can save on energy bills and provide greater comfort too. A serviceteam professional Gas Safe Engineer is the best person to diagnose, advise and recommend the best cost-effective option for you and your needs.

Q: How much time it takes to warm up a property?

Well, it depends on the efficiency of your heating system and property size. It takes marginally longer in larger homes with many rooms. As soon as the air is warmed and circulating, it should only take minutes for the warm air to exit the vents in each room. Then a while longer for it to reach room temperature as determined by the thermostat setting.

Q: When should a warm air system be serviced?

Regular annual servicing of warm air heating systems is recommended to maintain the system in optimal working condition.

During the service, the system’s air filters should be replaced or thoroughly cleaned to remove dust particulates and prevent them from circulating the property and aggravating people with allergies.

Q: How much does installing a new warm air heating system cost?

Well, It depends on the manufacturer, makes and model of the warm air heating system. The installation cost can be between 3 – 4 thousand pounds on average.

Q: What’s the best temperature a heating system should operate at?

Many factors will determine this, i.e., your geographical location, changes in weather conditions, temperatures and, of course, personal preference. There is no specific rule, but a remote property in the highlands of Scotland would have different settings to a terraced house, say, in the south of England. However, as advised by the Energy Saving Trust, a recommended thermostat setting range suggests setting it to the lowest possible temperature (that’s comfortable) but in the region of 18-21 degrees C. Remember, for every increase in temperature, it will show on your energy bill.

Q: Is warm air heating system energy efficient?

Yes, Studies have shown that these systems are almost 10-18% more energy efficient than other heating systems. This is because they operate differently; cool air is passed through a heat exchanger (warming it) and then blown into rooms. It’s a simple yet effective way to distribute heat around a home.

This process results in less energy waste and lower heating bills. So, if you’re looking to improve your home’s energy efficiency, a warm air heating system could be a smart choice.

Q: How much time it takes to replace the heating system?

Well, It’s based on the type of heating system, configuration, and alterations needed to meet current standards. As a benchmark, it is usually two days.
