Common Furnace Problems
There are many reasons why a furnace unit may need to be repaired. Some of these reasons are more common than others. Although we strongly recommend that you call for a professional furnace repair service every time you have problems with your unit, it won’t hurt if you get at least familiar with the most typical furnace problems.
Clogged or dirty filters
Furnace filters should be replaced every month. Failing to do so may lead to severe problems, including the complete breakdown of the entire system. Clogged or dirty filters will restrict the airflow, which puts additional stress on the motor and fan assembly. Besides the fact that your unit won’t be able to work efficiently, its internal components will also suffer irreparable damage.
Mechanical wear and tear
Every furnace contains many mechanical parts that have to work in unison to provide the best level of comfort and efficiency. Wear and tear on any of these parts may cause issues with the performance of your system.
Ignition control problems
The ignition system plays a crucial role in the heating operation. If this system malfunctions, the entire unit will stop working. Luckily, these ignition systems can be easily repaired or replaced. All you have to do is call a professional furnace repair service provider.
