The Best Way to Prevent Furnace Repair Issues

Regular professional furnace maintenance is a good way to avoid many repair issues that could impact the service life and energy efficiency of your heating system. Unfortunately, many skip this essential service each fall, either out of forgetfulness or attempts to save money. The best way to prevent breakdowns and the service cost of repair appointments is to make furnace maintenance a priority every year. Before winter weather arrives, schedule maintenance tune up service for your natural gas furnace or heat pump with Thomas & Galbraith.

In addition to professional furnace maintenance service, make sure the system’s air filter is replaced on a regular basis throughout the year. Running your furnace with a clogged filter can cause all sorts of problems, from overheating and component damage to higher heating bills. Replacing your furnace filter as the old air filter fills with contaminants keeps air moving freely through the furnace to avoid potential damage and excess energy consumption that will increase your utility bill.

Signs Your Furnace Needs Repair

Repair issues in a gas furnace or other heating system model can be difficult to detect for the average homeowner. While most homeowners realize the need to contact a furnace repair professional when the furnace fails to turn on or won’t generate any warm air, many other important repair issues go unaddressed because they are harder to identify. These issues are often the ones that become the most problematic, as their severity can vary depending on how long the malfunction was ignored. Furnace repair cost to fix system problems that have worsened with continued furnace use is typically far more than the actual cost would have been had the repair been performed promptly when its first symptoms became known.

As homeowners, it’s important to be mindful of symptoms you notice from your furnace – anything out of the ordinary is usually a good indicator of the need for furnace repairs. Find key warning signs of troubles with your furnace heating and air conditioning system below and call Thomas & Galbraith if you detect any of these symptoms in your home.

1. Strange Noises from the Furnace

Homeowners are used to minimal noise from their furnaces as they operate. A quick click of the thermostat as the furnace turns on and off, a click from the unit as the burner flames are ignited by the pilot light or ignition system, and the gentle hum of the furnace blower motor as a heat cycle runs are all normal. Any noises that suddenly develop are a reason to be concerned – here are a few strange noises to listen out for:

  • A bang at the beginning of a heat cycle, commonly linked to dirty burners
  • Constant clicking as the furnace attempts to start, which can be caused by a bad burner flame sensor
  • Grinding from worn furnace blower motor bearings
  • Squealing due to a loose or cracked belt in the blower motor assembly
  • Repeated clicking during the course of a heat cycle, from a faulty circuit board or control panel
  • Rumbling from the combustion chamber, caused by igniting natural gas that builds up due to a bad burner flame sensor, a dirty burner assembly, or faulty pilot light or electronic ignition system

2. Heat Cycles are Quick to Start and Stop

Typically, a furnace runs two to three heat cycles of 10 to 15 minutes each over the course of one hour. When heat cycles only last half that time or less, this is a furnace problem known as short cycling. Short cycling furnace repairs vary depending on the underlying cause, commonly:

  • A clogged filter causing overheating of internal furnace elements like the heat exchanger, forcing the limit switch to prematurely shut down the heat cycle for safety and to prevent damage – replace the furnace filter to prevent this.
  • Dead batteries forcing a thermostat to read the indoor temperature incorrectly and miscommunicate heating needs to the furnace.
  • If the blower motor doesn’t receive electricity, it won’t circulate air during a heat cycle – this causes the heat exchanger to overheat and the limit switch to turn the furnace off.
  • A dirty flame sensor cannot detect burner flames so it mistakenly shuts down the furnace for safety.
  • A burner covered in soot prevents flames from reaching the flame sensor, so the furnace incorrectly stops the heat cycle early.
  • The furnace is too big for the house rapidly increases the temperature so a long heat cycle won’t run – there is no repair solution, you must replace the furnace to correct this.
