The last thing you want to have happen is to have problems with your furnace, especially in the winter. The furnace can have common problems that can be prevented if taken care of. Hal Mechanical will go over what some of these common problems are so that you can prevent them from happening.
Dirty Air Filters
Having a dirty filter in your furnace is a very common problem. The reason for this is that not many people are aware that there is a filter for your furnace and that it needs to be replaced. You should be replacing it yearly. Keeping the filter replaced with a clean filter can help your furnace be efficient and circulate clean air throughout the house.
Lack of Heating Maintenance
The saying “out of sight out of mind”, should not include your furnace. You spent a decent amount of money on your furnace. You want to make sure that you take care of it. Doing regular maintenance on your furnace can help your furnace run better and smoother. It will also help maintain any problems that may arise that would cost you more money to get it fixed. Doing maintenance can help prevent problems before they start.
Furnace Parts Wearing Out
The older your furnace gets the more wear and tear that is put on it. With all the wear and tear that an older furnace has, it starts to not be as functional or efficient as it once was when you first got it. You need to consider the age of your furnace and decide if it is causing you more problems than it is worth. When those parts wear out, then breakdowns happen more often.
Thermostat Not Working Properly
When are heater is not working properly our first go-to would be to walk over to the thermostat and see what’s going on. But the thermostat may be the reason why your furnace is having problems. If you have a faulty thermostat, it can be an easier fix than most to get it back working. When it comes to a thermostat issue, it could be a wiring issue that is sending mixed signals.
Pilot Light Won’t Ignite
The pilot light is a small flame that has to ignite so that your furnace can turn on. This light can burn out or another type of issue can come up and you will have to re-light the pilot light. Unless you know what you are doing it is best to call a professional to help you so that you know it is done safely and properly.
If you have bad airflow it could be because you have a clog or something is backed up and not letting the air flow through. To make your home more comfortable you need to clean the air ducts so that air flows easily throughout your home.
