4 Things to Check if Your Furnace isn’t Working
Heating Repair & Furnace Repair Tips
1. Dirty Furnace Filters
Air filters are the number one culprit behind inefficient HVAC performance– but you don’t need a heating repair technician to tell you that.
They trap dust, dirt and debris like human and animal hair.
This restricts and blocks vital airflow over time, overheating the heat exchanger and preventing your furnace from working as it should, and increasing the likelihood you will need furnace repair..
Change filters every three months or as recommended by your equipment manufacturer manual
2. Thermostat Issues
After ensuring the filter is not the issue, it’s time to turn to the furnace’s control and command center, the thermostat.
To eliminate your furnace thermostat from the list of possibilities, simply turn the unit from AC to heat and set it 5 degrees above room temperature.
If the unit kicks on, the thermostat is working fine.
If not, it could be a simple battery issue.
Change them out annually to avoid the issue.
Contact a professional heating repair technician for further inspection if this does not fix the issue.
3. Ensure Unit is Turned On
Once you have ruled out the thermostat, it’s time to move on.
All furnaces have a basic power switch.
First, look for a switch on the wall, on or near the furnace to determine if it’s in the on or off position.
Second, check your circuit breaker or fuse for the furnace, which may have been turned off.
Finally, ensure the front panel covering the blower motor is securely fastened.
Under it, you’ll find a push-in switch, which needs to be fully depressed for your furnace to turn on.
4. Inspect Air Ducts
The presence of cold spots– even when hot air is coming out of the air vents– could be a sign of an air duct issue.
First, check for handles that protrude from the ducts – these are dampers that regulate airflow.
Second, ensure they are fully open.
If some entire rooms are still cold, you may have a problem with leaking ducts or incorrectly designed ducts.
This is a serious issue that can increase your energy bill.
So, to find blocked or leaky ducts that could be restricting airflow, look for any ducts you can access – are there any gaps between sections of ducts or branching out points?
You can seal these with special metal duct tape. Call a professional to have ducts cleaned and repaired.
Finally, be sure your vents aren’t being blocked by furniture or covered by objects, like drapes, plants or wall art.
If none of these tips fix your issue, we suggest calling a heating repair & furnace repair technician.
9 Signs Your Furnace is Failing
Heating Repair & Furnace Repair Tips
1. Increased Illnesses
When carbon monoxide builds up, it can make us sick in small doses.
In higher concentrations, exposure is deadly.
Furthermore, instances of flu-like or cold symptoms among family members may be due to a carbon monoxide leak in the gas heater or poor ventilation of the exhaust.
Call a professional furnace repair technician immediately if you suspect a carbon monoxide leak.
2. High Furnace Age
The average age of a furnace is 15-20 years, however some models last longer with proper maintenance.
The good news is that you can see the signs the furnace is going bad and be prepared or even avoid it completely.
Check the age of your heating system by looking at the information on the label attached directly to the unit.
Moreover, many manufacturers have posted their manuals online.
3. High & Unexplained Utility Bills
Simply put, heating bills increase as the heating system runs more frequently.
In addition, this causes an increase in utility costs, and increases your likelihood for needing heating repair.
Consequently, this could be a sign your furnace is going out.
Notwithstanding, a tune-up may be able to fix the issue and save you money.
And finally, letting one of our furnace repair technicians come take a look today can save you money tomorrow.
Nonetheless, we help you to weigh the signs that the furnace is going bad to make a financially sound decision.
4. Sudden Troublesome Noises
Noises are frustrating and stressful but when caught early, many of these issues are simply fixed.
Therefore, we bring our family values to every HVAC service, and want your business for the long run.
Consequently, if you hear a squeal, a new click, grinding, or popping when your furnace is at any point in the heating cycle, it’s best to have a tech take a look and catch things early.
5. Pilot Flame Color
Firstly, a yellow flame is a clear sign that the gas is not burning properly.
Dirty or partially blocked systems can produce this.
Secondly, it’s also another sign that a call to your trusted furnace repair technician is needed to save money and keep you a bit safer.
Thirdly, a gas furnace should have a vibrant or bright blue flame.
Fourth, when you see a weak and wavy or flickering flame, this indicates gas is not being completely burned.
Finally, pilot light color changes are another indicator that carbon monoxide is not venting away from the system safely.
6. Dry Air
Uniquely, causes for a dry environment include:
- issues with the humidity control
- an undersized system which is running too frequently
- an oversized unit which does not run long enough
Unfortunately, replacement is the only way to get the correct size furnace your home needs.
Soot is one of the signs your furnace is going bad.
Moreover, soot is generated from “day one” if the system is improperly installed.
Also, it can be from an aging system that may need to be replaced.
8. Frequent Repairs
Above all, increased spending on repairs is a serious sign your furnace is going bad.
Therefore, when repairs are happening more frequently it is a good sign that it may save time and money to add a new, more efficient HVAC heating system in Southern Colorado.
9. Poor Temperature Control
Additionally, when some rooms are hot and others are cold, this is a sign of a needed repair.
Often there are other root causes like a poorly engineered system, poor thermostat location, or poor insulation.
If your thermostat is no longer working properly, it may need to be replaced.
