Your furnace can be a finicky piece of equipment, so it’s important to familiarize yourself with some of the most common furnace repairs to be able to help an HVAC professional fix the problem as quickly as possible. The following are the four most common furnace repairs…
Clogged or Dirty Air Filters
The air filter of your furnace is one of its most important components, and when it’s clogged, it can drastically affect its performance. A dirty air filter will restrict air flow to your home, making your furnace work harder to keep up. This, in turn, can reduce the life span of your machine, so switching out its filters on a regular basis is essential. Most HVAC professionals provide a maintenance service that includes replacing your air filters so you can take that off the list of things you need to worry about.
Pilot Light Problems
Your furnace relies on its pilot light to heat your home. When a pilot light is malfunctioning, it can cause interruptions in service. If your furnace’s pilot light doesn’t appear to be lit and you’re unable to relight it yourself, it may be an electrical issue that needs to be repaired by a licensed professional. The electrical component creating the spark necessary to light your furnace’s pilot light can often become damaged, forcing a furnace repair.
Your furnace’s thermostat tells it the proper temperature to heat your home and controls its fan, so issues with your thermostat can lead to big problems. One of the most common thermostat issues is low batteries so check this first before calling an expert. If it’s not the batteries than it is most likely a mechanical problem that will require a repair by and HVAC professional.
Lack of Maintenance
Like any other household appliance, your furnace requires regular maintenance to function at its best. If you can’t remember the last time you had it inspected and serviced, or you’ve noticed a drop in its performance, scheduling a routine service appointment will often help resolve any issues. A furnace repair professional will also give you valuable preventative maintenance tips to help you extend its life span.
