There are several problems that can arise from a gas furnace, and as with most heating and cooling issues, most of the problems stem from poor, or nonexistent maintenance. With that in mind, be sure to schedule yearly maintenance as soon as possible, if you haven’t already done so this year.
Why You Might Need Gas Furnace Repairs
When diagnosing gas furnace problems, we will first check the filters. Dirty filters can lead to many problems, such as damage to the limit switch for the fan. Damage to the limit switch can lead to continuous blowing air or air flow that starts and stops of its own accord, regardless of how it is set.
If your gas furnace has been making strange sounds, such as a rattling, squeaking, or rumbling set of noises, this is cause for concern, as those sounds indicate a mechanical issue. Strange noises can also indicate clogged burners, or air flow reduction as well.
If you have a relatively new gas furnace, or have added rooms to your home, and you are experiencing uneven heating, or your furnace appears to be struggling, it is possible that you have the incorrect size furnace for your home.
How To Avoid Gas Furnace Repairs In The Future
As with most items in your home, your furnace requires regular maintenance and cleaning if you want it to stay in top condition. That is why yearly maintenance checks are recommended for all heating and cooling systems.
Regular maintenance ensures that your furnace components stay clean including the filters, the condensate trays, and the drain pipes. Clean components keep your furnace working smoothly, and keep your energy bills low. Additionally, annual check-ups for your furnace help you stay on top of any issues, and keep your repair costs minimal.
