What’s Wrong with My Furnace?
Your furnace is an enclosed unit, with all its miscellaneous parts and components hidden away where you can’t see them. That means that when something goes wrong with your unit, there’s no way for you to know what needs fixing or replacing without taking the whole thing apart, which is not only dangerous, but can also make your problem worse. Fortunately, our heating repair specialists have extensive experience safely pinpointing and resolving issues in your furnace. We can handle a full range of common and uncommon heating issues, in Beaver and the surrounding areas including:
- Dirty filters
- Pilot light or electrical ignition problems
- Malfunctioning blower or fan
- Unresponsive thermostats
- Dust or mold buildup
What To Do When Furnace Blows Cold Air?
When it's cold outside the last thing anyone wants to happen is cold air blowing out of their furnace. Why does this happen? There are a couple different causes for this. The most common one is a problem with the thermostat. It's important to make sure your thermostat's fan is not set to run continuously. If it is the system will blow air even when the furnace is not producing heat.
Other than the thermostat, the second most common cause for the furnace to not produce hot air are dirty filters. Filters work to filter dust and debris in the air out before the air is blown through ductwork. If these filters are not changed every 90 days, the dirt and debris can build up and clog the filter. When a filter is clogged it restricts the air flow from the furnace.
How Can I Tell When My Furnace Is About to Fail?
If something’s wrong with your furnace, you want to know before the warm air stops flowing altogether. Learn to spot the signs that small damages and wear-and-tear are affecting your furnace’s performance and contact our Beaver furnace repair team at the first sign of trouble. Common symptoms of a degrading furnace include, but are not limited to:
- Cold spots
- Dry air
- Strange sounds and smells coming from your vents
- Inaccurate thermostats
- Furnaces that won’t turn off or on as they should
What Causes a Furnace to Make Loud Banging Noises?
If you notice a loud banging noise coming from your furnace when it kicks on, this is typically caused by a dirty burner within the furnace. This can lead to a delayed ignition. Dirt keeps the burner from igniting gas which makes the gas build up and make a loud banging noise within the furnace. If you have heard this noise, contact Homer Nine and Sons, Inc. for repairs today. This noise should not be ignored because it can lead to more extensive repairs like a cracked heat exchanger.
How Often Should You Clean Your Furnace?
To keep your furnace in the best condition and avoid frequent repairs, it is important to keep up with regular maintenance and cleaning. Keeping your furnace clean will not only prevent dust and dirt from distributing throughout your home, but it will also keep your furnace running efficiently, safely, and lasting longer. We recommend that you clean your furnace at least once per year.
