Common Furnace Problems
There are literally hundreds of different things that can go wrong with your furnace, but some problems are much more common than others. Some of the most common problems with furnaces include:
- Pilot light or ignition control problems
If your pilot light is frequently going out, the furnace may only produce heat intermittently, or it may not heat your San Antonio home at all.
- Dirty or clogged filters
Filters need to be regularly cleaned or changed; otherwise, your furnace will have to work much harder to distribute heat throughout your home. This results in less heat and higher energy expenses.
- Air flow problems
Air flow problems can be caused by fan motors, belts, or bearing, and they will often result in poor heating control or an overheated furnace.
- Thermostat malfunctions
If your thermostat isn’t working properly, you’ll have trouble controlling the heat in your home, and you may end up unable to heat your home.
- Lack of maintenance
You need to have your furnace regularly maintained, inspected, and tuned up. Without regular maintenance, you’ll see a drop in your furnace’s efficiency, have a poorly heated home, and need more complicated and more frequent repairs.
Regular maintenance of your furnace is the best way to save money on repairs and avoid the frustration of having problems with your heating. Our professionals recommend you have your furnace tuned up at least once every year, preferably just before the winter begins. Furnace tune-ups can help you any necessary repairs before they do extensive damage, and they’ll keep your furnace running as efficiently as possible. Year-round.
