How to test if your heater is working properly

We have had a marvellous Indian Summer so far, but this is Melbourne, so the pre-winter cold will arrive before we know it, and it is best to be prepared when it does. 

You’d be surprised how many people leave it to the first cold snap to test their heaters, only to find out they have a fault and then have to go cold and unhappy until it can be fixed. We often get queries about “how to check if the heater is working” when the first cold breeze arrives in Melbourne. 

If you don’t want this to be you, then follow these four simple tips. 

How to check if the heater is working? Follow these four simple checks  

  1. Turn on your heater today. Yes, even if it’s warm outside today. Open a window near your heater and run it for 15 mins. If the heater does not turn on then book Surrey Air for a general All-Star repair. 
  1. Check the heater access point (in the wall, ceiling or under the floor) and the internal vents for any strange burning, electrical or gas smells. If you smell anything unusual, turn off the heater and book Surrey Air for an emergency repair. 
  1. Turn off the radio, TV, etc, and listen for any unusual mechanical sounds. If you hear anything strange, turn off the heater and book Surrey Air for a standard repair. 
  1. To keep your heater running efficiently all through the many months of a Melbourne winter, book a Super Star or Gold Star Maintenance Service with Surrey Air today. We will perform all the checks above and do a mechanical service on your units as well. Pre-booking your general service will save you time, money and shivering! 

Bonus Tip: Carbon Monoxide detection saves lives 

If you don’t have a Carbon Monoxide detector, get one today and install it near your heater. Carbon Monoxide is an odourless and deadly gas produced by unserviced and unventilated gas heaters. Detectors save lives and are available from hardware stores and supermarkets for a very reasonable price point.

We had an exceptional experience with the professional team who serviced my heater and evaporative air cooler. They were punctual, provided excellent service, and even went the extra mile by fixing a broken tile on our roof. Highly recommended for their professionalism and attention to detail.

Surrey air came a few weeks ago and serviced my reverse cycle air conditioner for me. They were able to fit me in quickly, there was good communication and the technician arrived on time. The technician was helpful going onto the roof and providing me photos to give to the body corporate re other units that needed attending to.

These guys had the most reasonable call out fee, they were able to attend to fix our issue the day after I contacted them and there was great communication throughout the whole process from booking to the eta of the technicians. They arrived and promptly set to work, getting our cooling back up and running. I would recommend them.
