Home Heater Not Working?

I had electrical work done on my home because we are selling it. Several different areas needed work done. The electrician did the work and then my dryer didn't work. They came back and did some wiring that was not even connected to my dryer, but now it works. Later that day after they left we noticed how cold it was in the house.

Now the heater was not working. We went to the breaker box and flipped the breaker for the heat although it had not tripped and then the heat worked for about fifteen minutes and quit again. Now the heat will only come on when we do this at the breaker box, but will only run for a few minutes. Any idea what is going on?

You may need to call in a reputable electrician to check on your problems. Unfortunately you will have to pay a new electric repair bill but, hopefully, the problems will be resolved.

I would also advise calling an electrician, but maybe not the same one you had before. He doesn't seem to be doing a very good job for you.

I just had another thought. The breaker may actually be tripping out every time. Sometimes a breaker will trip out without actually flipping into the off position. There may be something wrong with the heater that it keeps throwing the breaker, or the breaker may be defective. Breakers do wear out. Is the heater wired in directly, or is it one that you plug into an outlet? If it is wired directly, you need your electrician, or another electrician, back. If it is plugged into an outlet, try plugging it into a different one, as perhaps there are too many things running on this circuit and that is why the breaker keeps flipping.
