Furnace Repair Services
Do you suspect that your furnace is functioning at a less than optimal level? Maybe it is making some strange noises, feeling exceptionally hot, or just not giving off the level heat that you are used to. The most common time of year for furnaces to malfunction is during the late fall or early winter, when they are turned on for the first time in months. Common furnace problems include:
Dirty filters or clogs - A clogged air filter can make a furnace have to work harder than usual to circulate air. If the furnace is forced to operate for an extended amount of time with a clogged filter, the furnace can suffer damage.
Overheating - Sometimes a furnace overheats due to improper airflow. This can cause a vicious scycle .
Electrical problems - This could include issues such as a broken ignition or pilot light, and can negatively affect furnace operation.
Thermostat malfunction - Sometimes the problem is not with the furnace itself - but with the thermostat. If the thermostat is malfunctioning it can lead to problems that appear to be furnace related.
Age related issues - Older furnaces may cease to function at their optimal level, with an estimated 60% efficiency after ten years. Sometimes repairs are enough to help, and sometimes a full replacement is needed.
Mechanical problems - These can manifest as unnatural noises coming from the furnace, such as rattling or squeaking. A clogged burner or other mechanical problem may need to be addressed.
