Many homeowners consider air conditioning a luxury, but heating systems are far from it. Even in temperatures that are just barely shy of 50° F, cold is not something that we as humans tolerate very well. Luckily, the climate here in Hickory, NC allows for some very efficient and inexpensive heating options.

Of course, a heater isn’t much good if it isn’t installed and serviced by a professional. Gas furnaces can be dangerous if not installed and maintained by NATE-certified and licensed heating contractors. Canella Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. is your family in the HVAC business, and we’re dedicated to helping you with all of your heating system needs, from installation and replacement to repair and maintenance. Since 1990, we’ve been helping residents of the Hickory, Catawba Valley, and Unifour areas with anything we can, and we’re more than happy to do the same for you. Call our team today to schedule heating services in Hickory, NC and the surrounding area.

Our Most Common Heating Repair Call

Every year in the winter, we receive calls from Hickory, NC heat pump owners about a very particular problem: the air coming out of the vents is colder than usual; the outdoor unit’s fan stops spinning; the auxiliary heat light comes on. If all of these conditions fit your problem, then your heat pump is most likely going through a defrost cycle.

It’s a normal process that protects your outdoor unit from being damaged by extremely low outdoor temperatures. To remedy the problem, however, it does require using some of the heat inside your home. This can leave your home with colder-than-usual air for about 15 minutes. After that, the heat pump should return to normal heating mode.

If it goes on longer than 15 minutes, or if your outdoor heat pump is covered in ice, then you should turn off the unit and give us a call.

The Heating Services You Need in One Place

When Is It Time to Call in a Professional?
