Cold call: heater service techs busy in Metro Jackson

PEARL, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Business has picked up in the last 48 hours at Climate Masters Heating and Cooling in Pearl. Some of the calls are for routine maintenance. Other calls concern burned-out pilot lights in old furnaces.

There have also been ventilation problems due to damaged vent caps. Service technicians have found the hail storm back in March caused that problem.

"We got a bunch of pipes that are knocked loose. The caps are smushed down on them," says Climate Masters Service Technician Kevin Whittington. "These gas furnaces have a lot of safety features on them, one being a vent switch. If it's not venting properly, it will not operate."

To avoid calling a service tech for your heating system, make sure to change your air filter every month, Whittington advises.
