6 Types of Furnace Problems & How to Fix
Take a proactive approach to your furnace problems. Know these six types of furnace repair issues and how to fix them. Some may require the help of professionals, like us.
Furnace is Not Receiving Energy
When your furnace isn’t getting enough power, the first thing to check is to see if it’s plugged in. It may seem like an improbable scenario, but if it is unplugged, it’s a simple fix. If it is plugged in, move to the circuit breaker. Your circuit breaker controls the power in your home, so if the switch for the furnace is in the “off” position, switch it to on. If the switch is in between on and off, switch it to off and then back to on. If it doesn't fix the problem, seek professional help.
Malfunctioning Pilot Light or Electric Ignition System
Is your furnace old? It may be struggling to keep its pilot light on. If you are encountering furnace repair issues with your pilot light or electric ignition system, there may be a dangerous level of natural gas building up in your system. For this reason, it’s best to get help from your local furnace technician. Our team of contractors in Westmont, IL are well trained in furnace repair or maintenance and can diagnose your furnace issues and provide you with solutions.
Clogged Air Filters
Unlike some of the other issues on this list, this one is an easy fix. A clogged or dirty air filter can affect the amount of heat your furnace produces. When air can’t get through to your furnace, it’ll struggle to produce heat, and it’ll drive up your energy bill. By simply changing your furnace filters regularly, you can prevent these issues in the first place.
Do strange squealing noises keep coming from your furnace? It could be that the blower belt is worn down or slipped. If you’re familiar with mechanical HVAC repair, you may be able to fix this issue on your own. Your first step is to inspect the belt for any damage. If there’s no damage, you may just need to tighten it a bit. However, if there’s wear on the belt, you’ll need to replace it. Of course, if you can’t do this, our team is standing by to assist.
Incorrect Thermostat Settings
Sometimes the issue with your furnace is an issue with your thermostat settings. Mistakes happen, and you or someone in your home or office may have switched the thermostat to “off”. Ensure that your thermostat is switched to heat and on.
Grinding noises coming from your furnace indicate a problem with your blower. The likely culprit is the ball bearing being worn down. If you hear grinding noises coming from the furnace, shut it off right away. Our team of technicians provide dependable furnace and HVAC repair solutions in Westmont, IL and have the tools necessary to resolve the grinding noise in your system.
