7 Common Furnace Issues
Eventually, all homeowners face furnace issues. But there are ways you can help prevent small issues from becoming worse. Start by understanding the most common furnace issues below.
Thermostat Isn't Working
The best place to start narrowing down your furnace issues is to check your thermostat. If your thermostat setting has the fan setting on, then the furnace fan is constantly running, causing inefficiencies. Instead, try setting your thermostat to the auto setting and check if the fan still runs at all heat settings.
It’s hard for your furnace to work efficiently if your air filters are clogged. By regularly changing your air filters (every 3-4 months) you can help your furnace work at its best. You’ll also have cleaner air throughout your home or workplace.
Discolored Pilot Light
A normally functioning pilot light gives off a blue-colored flame. If you notice the color of your pilot light changing to yellow, or it is flickering, you could have a dangerous build-up of carbon monoxide in your furnace. If you encounter a discolored pilot light, do not attempt to fix this furnace repair issue without a licensed technician. Give our team a call by phone at (630) 968-0783 to receive assistance with a defective pilot light.
Cracked Heat Exchanger
The purpose of the heat exchanger in your furnace is to keep the hot flames separate from the air. If you neglect replacing your air filter, your heat exchanger can crack. Replacing your heat exchanger can be costly and requires the help of a professional. Our team of technicians offer innovative furnace repair and replacement services in Crest Hill, IL. Our staff have the tools necessary to help you safely fix or replace your damaged heat exchanger. Give our team a call by phone at (630) 968-0783 or book an appointment online if your heat goes out. We will be able to diagnose the problem and provide you with a solution.
Damaged Blower Belt
The blower motor that helps distribute warm air throughout your home needs an intact belt to function. But over time, the blower belt might start to fray or break. You can tell the blower belt is malfunctioning if you hear a high-pitched squealing noise coming from the furnace. Simply replace your worn-out belt with a new one.
Is your power bill getting bigger and bigger? It could be due to frequent cycling, which means your furnace turns on frequently, despite just finishing a cycle. The cause can range from clogged air filters to improper airflow. You also may be running your furnace too high or too low, causing it to work constantly.
Malfunctioning Limit Switch
Does your furnace blow even when it shouldn’t be? This is a sign of a malfunctioning limit switch. To fix this problem, you’ll need the help of a professional HVAC technician near you.
