Like any mechanical system, furnaces are susceptible to breakdowns. If you notice that your furnace isn’t performing as it should, it could be due to several causes. Optimal performance of your furnace is dependent on the continual operation of many parts and components within the system. If one small issue occurs, it can cause your furnace to start acting strangely, or even cause it to stop working altogether.
Furnace issues can have several causes, including:
If any of the above is true of your furnace, you will likely begin to notice one or more issues occurring. Unusual noises, foul odors, restricted airflow, no heat, insufficient heat, and frequent cycling are all signs that something has gone wrong inside your furnace. Your best course of action is to reach out to our heating experts for help. We’ll quickly identify the source of the issue and explain your repair options.
There will always be a soft noise when a furnace runs. No furnace can run completely silent, but there are specific sounds a furnace only makes if there are serious problems within. Here are some of problematic sounds and what they mean for your furnace:
One of the most common reasons a furnace develops problems and stops working is a clogged air filter. When an air filter is blocked, the air handler is forced to work harder to compensate for the restricted airflow. This causes your system to perform less efficiently, driving up your utility bills. Your furnace will also run with less heat output, leaving your home colder than you’d like. If your unit is a newer, more efficient model, it may shut itself down to prevent a dirty filter from causing more trouble — again, leaving you with inadequate heat.
At Service First HVAC, we can not only help you change your air filter but also repair any damage that has resulted from leaving a dirty filter in your system for too long. You can tell if it’s time to change your filter by holding it up to the light and seeing if light still shines through. If not, the filter needs to be changed.
