Watch Out for These 3 Furnace Problems

You should always be proactive when it comes to your furnace, its condition, and overall health. Here are a few common furnace problems to know about and reach out to our Comfort Now professionals to address:

  1. Inadequate Heating
    One of the most common issues with a furnace, particularly a gas furnace, is failing to provide adequate heating. This problem can be due to issues as simple as a dirty air filter restricting airflow or a malfunctioning thermostat.

    Another potential cause could be the furnace’s inability to circulate air properly due to a faulty blower motor. Regular tune-ups and maintenance can often prevent these types of issues, ensuring your home stays comfortably warm throughout the winter months.

    According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, heating accounts for about 15 percent of an average household’s energy use. A well-maintained furnace can operate more efficiently, saving energy and reducing costs.
  2. Unusual Noises
    Rattling, banging, or whining sounds can indicate different problems within the furnace.

    A rattling noise might suggest loose components, while a banging noise could point to an issue with the ignition system. Ignoring these sounds can lead to more significant and costly repairs down the line.

    Scheduling a professional tune-up can help diagnose and resolve these issues before they escalate.
  3. Frequent Cycling
    Frequent cycling, where the furnace turns on and off more often than usual, is another red flag. This could be due to an incorrect thermostat setting, a clogged filter, or a faulty thermostat.

    It could also indicate a more significant problem—such as an incorrect furnace size for your home.

    Ensuring your heating system is the right size for your space is crucial for efficiency and longevity. Frequent cycling not only affects your comfort but also puts extra strain on the furnace, leading to increased wear and tear.
