What Are The Most Common Furnace Repairs?

Some of the most common furnace repairs include replacing broken parts, dirty filters, and dirty coils. The first repair is usually changing the furnace’s filter system, as it can be clogged with dirt, dust, and grime. The dirtier the furnace, the harder it has to work on a daily basis. By replacing a dirty old filter with a new one, it can keep your HVAC system working smoothly to circulate cold or hot air throughout your home. A clean furnace filter is overall an important repair and maintenance step to be followed. A contractor will replace most furnace filters every month or two, depending on the type of HVAC system you have installed. 

Another common repair is cleaning the area around your furnace. Dust and extra debris can clump around crucial areas near your furnace. The furnace filter often blocks dirt, allergens, pollutants, and other air elements from interfering with the HVAC system. If the area is left a mess, it could impede much-needed airflow towards the unit. Keep it clean by sweeping or vacuuming it if possible. 

If your furnace is outside, it’s also important to clean and possibly replace the outside coils for optimal functioning during the spring. Remove any dead leaves, trash, or vegetation that may be clogging the coils. These condenser coils are designed to transfer the heat towards your home and limit the effects of debris. 

In some cases, the thermostat may also need to be updated or replaced because it may not be able to detect the proper temperature levels. They play an important role with your HVAC unit because it tells it when to start a heating or cooling cycle, producing the right temperatures for the right amount of rooms. If it fails to do this by delivering uneven temperatures or is generally unresponsive, you may have to have a contractor solve the electrical issues that are affecting it. An HVAC technician will often examine your thermostat’s software or hardware. Afterwards, they’ll determine the best solution to keep your HVAC unit working properly. 

How Do You Diagnose A Furnace Problem?

If you start hearing loud, unpleasant noises from your furnace, it may be a good time to have a technician inspect it for repairs. These sounds can range from clunking, thumping, squealing, and other noticeable loud noises that can point to a large number of problems. If your furnace is squeaking, your furnace may have a blower belt problem. If you start hearing a scraping noise, it may be a sign that something is damaging the furnace’s blower bearings. 

These strange noises from the furnace can be a result of various mechanical parts that have come loose or were broken at some point. A specialized technician will make sure to repair any of these parts and install new replacements to prevent fire or further damage. Afterwards, the furnace should work without issue or loud noises. Test it out by turning it on and seeing if it runs normally. 

How Do I Get My Furnace Ready For Spring?

As we mentioned before, the best way to prepare your furnace for spring is to clean it up, change any dirty filters, and book an appointment with our specialized team of HVAC technicians and contractors. Check for any weird noises coming from the unit and make sure to check each room in your house to see if they’re receiving the right temperature.
