6 COMMON FURNACE PROBLEMS
If you’re experiencing furnace troubles, believe it or not, the majority of issues are caused by a just a few problem areas.
1. Clogged Air Filter
A clogged air filter can be a contributing factor to so many furnace issues. It can cause reduced airflow, spikes in energy usage as well as a total system shut down. Make sure you change your furnace filter every 2-3 months for greatest system efficiency and reliability.
2. Tripped Circuit Breaker
We see it all of the time, a customer calls in to schedule a repair for a furnace that has stopped turning on. Before you make a call to a service professional, check your circuit breakers. Another quick check that you can perform is making sure the shut off switch (located near your furnace), is turned on. Sometimes these switches get turned off inadvertently.
3. Blower Belt or Motor
If your furnace is making a high pitched sound, it’s likely an issue with your blower belt or blower motor. Either one of these problems can cause your furnace to malfunction, but can also be prevented with routine furnace cleanings & maintenance.
4. Thermostat Settings
Always double check your thermostat settings when your furnace appears to be non-operational. This is more common with programmable thermostats because you might have set up a program and forgotten about it when the seasons change. A helpful hint is to make sure the temperature setting and that the thermostat is set to heat, rather than “air” or “off.”
5. Ignition System Failure
Modern day furnaces no longer use a standing pilot light. Instead they use either intermittent pilot or hot surface ignition to start the furnace. The ignition itself can fail over time, causing the furnace to not start. It’s also possible that a safety switch, circuit board or other malfunctioning part may fail, keeping the ignition system from operating properly.
6. Dirty Burner
Your furnaces burner is responsible for warming the air when the thermostat calls for heat. If the furnace fires up, but the air isn’t warm – it’s likely a problem with your burner.
