The furnace in your home is a significant component of your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system. You activate your furnace whenever you use your thermostat to the desired temperature. Several furnace types include natural gas, electric, oil, and propane furnaces. Listed below are common issues that you may encounter with your furnace.
No Heat Coming From Your Furnace
The primary function of your furnace is to distribute warm heat throughout your home on a chilly day. However, your furnace can still produce air despite it not being warm. If this happens, it could be something as minor as the wrong thermostat setting. There could also be no heat source to warm the furnace. Your pilot light is critical in keeping your fuel ignited. There could also be an issue with dirt and other forms of debris clogging air filters that restrict airflow in your furnace. That is another reason to incorporate the habit of regularly changing your air filters in the HVAC system in your home.
Your Furnace Frequently Turns Off
If you find that your unit is short cycling and doesn’t reach your desired temperature, that is usually a telltale sign of a more problematic issue. Many things can factor into your system constantly shutting on and off. More than likely, the problem stems from a lack of airflow.
Leaks Coming From Your Unit
In particular furnaces, condensation leaks can occur. When this happens, water tends to just sit at the bottom of your furnace. If a condensation pipe gets clogged or begins to leak, this is how water can accumulate.
You Hear Making Noises
Your furnace will often make noises as they function. However, some noises could be a more troublesome problem. For instance, if your unit is knocking or rattling, it could result from a loose part. However, if there are louder noises, there could be an issue with your combustion chamber. In that case, don’t hesitate to call the professionals at W.E. Kingswell.
