There are several ways in which your furnace can develop problems that need to be addressed by a professional technician. These can be detected during routine maintenance and addressed before they develop into more serious problems.

Dirty Filters and Ductwork

When your furnace’s ductwork or filters are clogged, it can cause it to work harder to get the air through. This puts more strain on the system and raises your energy bills.

Faulty Starters

If your pilot light or electrical ignition has stopped working, your furnace can no longer function. We can come repair or replace it to get you back up and running.

Failed Blowers

Blowers are fans that move the hot air around your home. Sometimes the bearings, belts or capacitors need repairing or replacing.

Broken Heat Exchangers

Heat exchangers are metal shields that are located between the combustion chamber and blower. If the air coming out of your vents isn’t warm, it may mean there is a problem with the heat exchanger.

Faulty Thermostat

Thermostats control the temperature setting for your furnace, and when they are malfunctioning, they can make your home either too hot or too cold.

Broken Limit Switch

A limit switch tells the blower when to turn on and off and shut your furnace off before it can overheat and reaches a certain temperature. This helps prevent fires and damage to your furnace. If your furnace is continuously running, it may be a sign your limit switch isn’t working properly.

Tripped Circuit Breaker

Sometimes, your furnace can cause your circuit breaker to trip if it is on the same circuit as another heavy electrical appliance.

Strange Noises and Smells

There are several noises and smells to watch out for that indicate a problem with your furnace. If you notice any grinding, squealing or clunking noises, or you smell gas or burning smells, it is time to call in a trusted professional to diagnose and fix the problem.
