You’ve purchased a PVC pipe heater, but it seems that the blanket doesn’t quite keep the heat in. Or perhaps you have the heater on, and the room is well heated, but the temperature outside is much colder. It’s time to take another look at your heater. Did you put it on correctly? If not, here are some troubleshooting tips that may help you.
Troubleshooting 101 – What Is a PVC Pipe Heater Blanket?
Before you do any type of heating system installation, whether it’s a PVC pipe bender heater, or any other device, you need to check the connection to make sure the material is properly connected. Also check the price list to make sure it matches the items that you have bought. Remember that this connection process usually uses copper, so if your price list does not include copper wires, check to see if you can buy them separately at a hardware store. Also check the voltage rating of the wires to make sure that your new heater will handle the current you plan to draw. Many people don’t purchase the highest rated wire for their heater simply because they think that it might be more expensive.
Don’t worry if you get a different answer to these troubleshooting questions. The fact is that PVC pipe heaters can come with different ratings for input and output. If you can’t find the answer to your heating blanket query on the internet, then it’s likely that you will have to consult a professional. In that case, you should probably call an electrician, as he/she may be able to check the wiring for you and make sure it matches the specifications of your heater.
