4 furnace problems you might recognize

No heat, dirty filters, pilot light, thermostat…..do these sound familiar? Just like we give ourselves an annual checkup your HVAC can use one too.

  • Thermostat problems. This is the first and most important point that we want to address when it comes to issues that might be affecting your heater. If you’re constantly turning on your thermostat after if turns off, there could be several things wrong. Firstly, check the battery and make sure that it’s got enough batteries to run. Secondly, if the problem is getting more frequent, there could be an electrical problem that requires professional help. Remember, your thermostat is part of your heating system too, so it’s a good idea not to neglect it.
  • No heat. If there have been times when your heater produced no heat and you turned the thermostat up to have the problem go away, you’re going to want to have a professional investigate that further. Your furnace should be able to provide heat at the temperatures you set for it, and having no heat is a huge red flag that a licensed professional needs to address.
  • Constantly dirty air filter. If you keep changing your furnace’s air filter and you’re noticing that it gets dirty much faster than every 1-3 months, then there could be a serious problem with your indoor air quality. This problem might be affecting your heating system negatively, so you’ll want a professional to find the root of the problem.
  • Flickering pilot light. Sometimes homeowners might notice their pilot light constantly flickering until they either forget about it or it stops. The problem with this, is that a flickering pilot light could be a dangerous problem that you can’t afford to ignore. It doesn’t matter if you think the flickering is done, call a professional to make sure your furnace is running safely.

Call a professional today if any of these sound familiar, the peace of mind you’ll feel is worth the time out of your day.
