When Do You Need Furnace Service?
As we mentioned, furnaces should operate quietly for most of their 10 – 15 year lifespan. There are, however, certain things that can go wrong with your furnace and cause you to need furnace repairs, including:
Your furnace isn’t producing any heat – this is more common at the beginning of the heating season (and can be prevented with a preseason furnace tune-up). If you’re not getting any heat from your furnace, make sure the thermostat is set to HEAT mode and is set to the right temperature. If the thermostat is set up properly, you may just have a tripped circuit breaker, a blown fuse, or your pilot light could be out. If your furnace isn’t creating heat, give us a call to get it fixed quickly.
Your furnace isn’t producing enough heat – if your furnace is producing some heat, but you feel like it’s not as much as usual, first check your filters and make sure they’re clean—you may need to replace them. If changing the filters doesn’t fix the problem, call us for furnace repairs—your gas burners may need to be adjusted.
Your furnace cycles on and off frequently – short cycling can be caused by a number of things, from an oversized furnace or undersized ducts to clogged air filters that cause the motor to overheat. If you’ve changed the filter and the problem persists, give us a call—you may need to lubricate the blower motor or adjust the fan belt.
The blower fan seems to be running constantly – if your blower fan seems to run nonstop, make sure the fan setting on the thermostat is set to AUTO instead of ON. If it is or if your thermostat doesn’t have a fan setting, schedule an appointment today—you may need to replace or repair your furnace’s fan limit control switch.
Your furnace is too noisy – if your furnace makes a lot of noise when it runs, it could mean the pilot needs to be adjusted or your furnace components need oil. Whatever the case may be, give us a call for furnace repair!
Your pilot light is burnt out – if your furnace’s pilot light is burnt out, it needs to be relit! Simple as that. If you don’t know how to do this, call AirDuct Specialists, INC today!
