If you are encountering issues with your furnace, there are literally hundreds of reasons that could have caused them. However, some problems are more common than others. This is a good place to start if you are having your system diagnosed.
1. Clogged Filters
It is extremely important to replace your filters. You don’t need the expensive kind. Ask one of your local HVAC contractors for cheap recommendations. Install one of these on a monthly basis to help the system breathe properly. Once clogged, it forces your heater to work harder than it usually takes to continue working, putting undue strain on the system.
2. Thermostat Malfunctions
Your thermostat is a small device that controls your heater. Common problems that occur with this can result in over running, no heat or intermittent heating. This is where we usually start to diagnose issues with your system.
3. Mechanical Problems
Your unit has moving parts that can wear over time. Your HVAC repair appointment should also include a checkup on mechanical parts and make sure they are fit to operate and won’t cause performance issues.
4. Pilot and Ignition Issues
Newer units use one of two ignition systems – Intermittent Pilot or Hot Surface Ignition. If the ignition is malfunctioning, it could result in intermittent heat or none at all.
5. Neglecting Maintenance
Think about how much money you have invested in your smart HVAC system only to have it sit in the weather day in and day out without proper upkeep. Just like your car, your unit needs a yearly check-up to make sure that everything is working properly.
