Top 5 Furnace Repair Problems

Because of our extensive experience in furnace repair, Draft Control has seen every type of furnace repair imaginable. No matter what your problem is, we can fix it. Here are a few of the most common furnace problems we encounter:

1. Furnace Hasn't Been Properly Maintained

Keeping your furnace well-maintained goes a long way to preventing a host of problems that can occur. Routine inspections can help to detect a small issue and address it before it becomes a larger one. Scheduling annual maintenance for your furnace will help it run more efficiently and will help it last much longer too.

2. Filters that Haven't Been Changed

The filters in your furnace remove contaminants from the air in your home. When your filters become clogged or dirty, the movement of air through them becomes much more difficult, so your furnace has to work harder than it should. Changing your filters regularly, at least every 3 months, will help to keep the air flowing smoothly through your unit and will prolong the lifespan of your furnace.

Annual inspections will help keep your furnace running longer

3. Your Furnace Keeps Turning On and Off

If you notice that your furnace is continually turning on and off, this could mean a few different things. First, your filters may be clogged and you will need to change them. Second, your thermostat might be broken or incorrectly set. Finally, your furnace may be the wrong size for your home.

4. Your Furnace Is Very Noisy

Your furnace should not be making loud or unusual noises. It should run rather quietly in the background. If you hear rumbling, squeaking, or rattles, then there is something wrong. It could be a mechanical problem, a reduction in airflow, or your burner may be clogged. Contact a professional to take a look at it.

5. Wear and Tear

As your furnace gets older, you may experience airflow problems, heat control problems, or even the overheating of your home. Most furnaces need to be replaced after about 15 years. Some will last longer with regular maintenance.
