A Comfy Fall Means Don't Have These Furnace Problems!

The weather is getting colder, and the trees are turning. This is the perfect time to sit back, enjoy the colorful outdoors, watch some football and get cozy in the heat of a working furnace! However, if that furnace isn't working well, you may end up in the cold instead.

For a comfortably cozy and warm autumn, make sure to watch out for the common furnace issues you may encounter:

1. Air Filters

Furnace depend on air flow, if your air filters are full of dust, dirt and animal hair it can't get air. Dirty filters are most often the cause of a furnace's inefficiency—the heat, dirt, and dust clogged in them keep your furnace from blowing enough heat, which makes for an uncomfortably cooler home. When the furnace's air filters get too dirty, it won't remove the contaminants like dust, dirt, hair, allergens, and more. It's not good for your lungs or your furnace.

Your furnace is sensitive. If hair, smoke, particles and more get inside it can really mess with the system. Your furnace may get damaged, and your energy bills could rise.

2. Thermostat Issues

You don't always need to call for furnace repair. It could be a thermostat issue that's causing problems with your heat. Your thermostat should be working and programmed to your comfort level. If it isn't, your home won't feel comfortable to you.

Make sure you have the right thermostat for your HVAC system. Not all thermostats are compatible with all furnaces.

You also have to make sure it's not a user error. You can't just go and start pressing buttons until a furnace works. Programmable thermostats are great for saving energy and money, but they also are more complicated. Our technicians often have to teach homeowners how to program their thermostats so their furnace runs effectively. We also recommend changing your thermostat's battery as the season changes to prevent any more problems with your heating.

3. A Furnace That Fits

The right furnace should heat your entire house perfectly. But if your furnace isn't strong enough or if there are cold areas of your home, you might need a more powerful system. Also, if your furnace never seems to shut off, this could be another sign

No matter the make or model of the furnace, or who installed it, you'll still have to endure living under freezing conditions if your furnace can't cope with the heating demands of your home. Unfortunately, the only cure is a new furnace.

4. A Furnace That Can't Make It

A furnace that stops and just gives up, especially during a winter night is never good. Most often, a furnace might stop working because of a tripped circuit breaker, an issue with the pilot light ignition, or restricted flow that triggered a safety switch.

If your furnace has had it, don't attempt to find out the cause and solve the problem yourself. You might do more damage or get into an electrical accident. To ensure your safety and the condition of your furnace, make sure to contact a professional for furnace repair.
