A furnace burns fuel, or uses electricity to heat an element, and then blow that warmed air throughout the home’s ducting system. It’s an important system, and there are a number of problems that could occur with the components in a furnace, such as the fuel source, the heating element, and much more. Many furnaces have a chimney system that needs to be monitored and maintained to prevent a buildup of carbon monoxide, which can be dangerous if left untended, or not repaired.

Common Furnace Problems
- Dirty Filters – One of the most common causes of restricted airflow are clogged or dirty filters. Restricted airflow makes your furnace work harder to keep the same volume of air circulated, and could even cause damage to the fan’s control switch.
- Ignition Failure – A malfunctioning ignition system could be a result of a malfunctioning thermocouple, or a poorly sealed joint is allowing a draft of air to enter and blow out the pilot light.
- Malfunctioning Thermostat – A malfunctioning thermostat can cause blower motor malfunctions and can leave your home extremely uncomfortable.
- Short Cycling – Short cycling can be caused by improper airflow, a faulty thermostat, or a clogged filter. Ongoing short cycling is damaging to your system and will reduce its lifespan, as well as damage other parts.
