Do Any of These Common Furnace Problems Sound Familiar?
- No heat: An absence of heat is linked to closed valves or the thermostat being set incorrectly.
- Faulty blower: A blower that doesn't turn on automatically indicates a damaged fan or an incorrect thermostat setting.
- Constant on/off activity: While furnaces are designed to turn on and off independently, if the on/off activity occurs before the intended time frame, this could mean that there is an issue with the motor, belt, or thermostat.
- Noisy furnace: All furnaces make sounds when operating; however, if your furnace is making loud rumbling noises, it most likely means the burner needs to be replaced. What’s more, high-pitched noises indicate a problem with the motor or belt.
If you are experiencing multiple problems with your furnace that seem to recur even after repairs, you may want to consider a replacement. This will prove to be more cost effective in the long run, as you will save greater energy and encounter fewer problems. If your furnace is simply suffering from lack of maintenance, contact us for more information. The ideal months for professional inspections are late September to early October.
How Can You Prevent Furnace Problems?
We provide our customers with advice on how to best maintain their units. This gives you greater control and knowledge over your heating system and may even save you on unnecessary repairs. So how can you keep your furnace running in top condition for winter?
- Have your utility company check the furnace connections, pipes, and gas meter to determine if any problems need to be addressed.
- Install carbon monoxide detectors to prevent accidental gas leak poisoning. If the detector goes off, call for professional assistance immediately so that the gas leak can be controlled.
- Have your pilot lights relit if they go out over the summer.
Even with regular maintenance, your furnace is still vulnerable to breaking down from general wear and tear. This is especially true if you’ve had your unit for over 10 or 15 years. After this time, a replacement is recommended.
