There are hundreds of reasons why a home furnace or heating system need to be repaired or replaced. Unfortunately these factors lead to costly repair bills that could have otherwise been avoided. To help you identify potential problems and prevent future damage from occurring, please see the following common heating repair problems:
- Improper air flow as a result of worn out belts and fan motors. If your furnace is overheating this could be the reason.
- Basic mechanical wear and tear. Over time, your system naturally begins to wear down. As a result, you will experience poor airflow or system overheating.
- Clogged air filters. Air filters clog on a regular basis. Routine replacement of your air filters will improve the system’s efficiency and extend it’s life. As a result of clogged air filters, homeowners will experience restricted air flow, an overworked system, and overall lower comfort level.
- Ignition pilot control issues. Problems with your ignition pilot result in little to no heat being generated through your system.
- Not scheduling routine maintenance. This can result in excessive cost repairs for problems that could have easily been avoided. Nothing affects your system’s longevity more than maintenance. To ensure your furnace stays at the top of its game, schedule routine maintenance every 6 months to 1 year.
