Common Furnace Repairs
Although you might be tempted to repair your furnace yourself, we cannot in good conscience advise you to do so. Because so many furnaces use gas, a wrong move could have explosive consequences or pose a health hazard to the residents of your home. Furthermore, like any appliance, if you aren’t familiar with how all the pieces work in harmony, following a highly generalized DIY guide could lead to problems in the future.
No job is too big or small to get the reassurance working with the professionals can bring. So, if you notice any of these problems with your furnace, just know that they are very common problems we can repair with ease.
Clogged Air Filters
Clogged air filters are one of the biggest causes of furnace problems. If it turns on but it doesn’t blow hot air for very long, there is a good chance that your air filter is obstructed. When dust and other debris builds up on the filter it reduces the airflow through the system, which causes the system to turn off. We can gladly change your air filters, inspect your heat exchanger for soot and carry out a full safety check to make sure everything is normal.
Modern furnaces typically use either intermittent pilot or hot surface ignition to start the furnace because they are more efficient than a standing pilot light. Even though they are designed to be more efficient, they don’t last forever. We can easily double check and repair the hot surface ignition system as well as the safety switches and any other part of the furnace that might be making ignition impossible.
Burner Adjustments and Cleanings
Once lit, a furnace relies on a burner to heat the air that gets blown through the air ducts and delivered throughout the home. Sometimes the burner doesn’t light or doesn’t generate enough heat. To verify this as the issue, we’ll need to take a look inside the appliance. Don’t try this yourself unless you are qualified to inspect gas appliances.
