Common Furnace Problems in Belleville

January 09, 2017

We’ve reviewed some of Belleville’s usual heating and furnace problems previously, but we’re back with a couple more issues that could cause your furnace to break down in the middle of this miserable cold.

Lack of Maintenance

Not only does seasonal furnace maintenance help your system run up to 30% more efficiently and lengthen the lifespan of the equipment, it’s also demanded by most manufacturers to continue your furnace’s warranty. For both those reasons, you should really invest in routine furnace tune-ups. Catching small issues early can help stop them from becoming major (expensive!) furnace problems.

System Wear and Tear

If you’re running your heating equipment all winter long to remain warm, usual wear and tear on the elements is to be expected – especially in older heating equipment. Strain on your belts and bearings can cause the equipment to overheat or result in problems with the fan motors, resulting air flow problems.

Clogged Air Filters

If you use a typical furnace air filter, you should be changing it monthly. If you forget, it not only affects the air you are breathing, the dirt and bacteria growth could cause air flow restrictions within the furnace equipment. This will result in your furnace working much harder to warm your home, potentially putting too much wear and tear on the components and, in turn, raising your heating bills .

Thermostat Malfunctions

Your thermostat is the appliance that tells your heating system when it’s time to kick on and fill your home with warm air, and when it’s time to stop. If the thermostat is not set or working accurately, it could result in your furnace turning on and off every couple minutes, operating all day long, or not turning on at all.
