Common furnace problems solved by our HVAC experts
During the heating season in Fenton, a malfunctioning furnace can be a very serious problem. Just because your furnace is functioning doesn’t mean that it is working correctly, efficiently or even safely. Here are some of the most common problems with furnaces:
Thermostat malfunction. An older thermostat can wear out or be damaged, which limits your control of the heating system. Upgrading to a programmable thermostat will solve this problem and also enable you to cut heating costs.
Mechanical problems. The fan motor, drive belt and bearings in a typical furnace are all wear items. When these mechanical parts become worn, they must be replaced to avoid air flow problems or total system shutdown.
Dirty or clogged filters. It’s easy for homeowners to forget to replace old air filters that become clogged with dirt, dust, pet dander and other particulates. When this happens, air flow is reduced and system efficiency plummets. Filters should be replaced at least once every season –more often if the family has pets or a remodeling project underway.
Ignition problems. Most of today’s furnaces have electronic ignition, so that the burner only turns on when the thermostat calls for heat. A clogged burner nozzle or a faulty ignition will prevent the burner from working correctly.
Cracked heat exchanger. This furnace component separates the combustion process from the indoor air supply. With age, a heat exchanger can crack, which causes safety and performance problems.
Improper venting. Any furnace that burns fuel requires an air supply for the combustion process, and a venting system to expel combustion gasses. Your furnace technician will check for proper ventilation during regular service calls.
Outdated, inefficient performance. Today’s high-efficiency, sealed combustion furnaces can operate at 90% efficiency or better. Older furnaces may only reach 75% or 80% efficiency, even in perfect condition. Upgrading to an efficient, ENERGY STAR® furnace is a smart option in many cases.
