9 Most Common Furnace Problems
When your furnace produces sounds like rattling and squeaking, these may be signs of mechanical troubles. The noise may also be because of a clogged burner or reductions in airflow.
Little to No Maintenance
Regular annual maintenance is supposed to be done for your system for you to fully make use of your HVAC system’s life span
Blower Continuously Running
This means that your limit switch may have gone faulty. Only professionals can properly replace this.
Airflow gets reduced if your filters are dirty and clogged. Your furnace will have difficulty working and circulating well if you have this trouble. The limit switch could also be damaged, which eventually also damages the fan.
On and Off Modes Cycle Frequently
Your ON and OFF modes switching frequently could mean that the filter is clogged.
The Furnace Doesn’t Blow Heat
A furnace that doesn’t perform its main task may have problems with the thermostat setting, power, gas or the pilot light.
The Furnace doesn’t Heat Enough
In addition to a clogged filter, a furnace may not produce enough heat if it’s the wrong size for the space.
Problems With Pilot Control and Electric Ignition
When your pilot light remains unlit, that ultimately means your system is facing thermocouple problems.
This problem will affect the unit's fan and comfort levels.
Furnace Tips and Advice for Repairs
Change the air filters
Dirty air filters lead to a multitude of furnace problems. Clean or replace the filter once a month, according to the manufacturer’s directions. A furnace repair professional can show you how to do this.
Check the thermostat
If it appears your furnace isn’t producing heat, check the battery level in the thermostat. In some models, simply replacing the battery may do the trick!
