Furnace Warning Signs

Lack of routine maintenance can result in higher energy costs from inefficient operation and can often lead to inconvenient, unexpected system failure. Knowing the signs that it might be time for furnace maintenance could save you thousands of dollars down the road. Be on the lookout for the following:

  • Thermostat Issues: Problems with the thermostat can cause the heat or fan to malfunction or the temperature inside your home to get too hot or too cold.
  • Broken Parts: Airflow issues caused by worn or broken fan motors, belts, and bearings can trigger further damage.
  • Dirty Filters: Filters can become dirty or clogged, which restricts airflow and prevents the system from properly heating the air. This forces the furnace to work harder to circulate air through the home. In some cases, this could damage the limit switch, which controls the fan.
  • Ignition Problems: Pilot or ignition problems can shut off a heating unit entirely and not allow any warm air through.
  • Uneven Heating: If your furnace is unevenly heating your home, there could be a number of issues causing problems, from improper equipment to duct problems.
  • Higher Utility Bills: Higher utility bills often indicate an inefficient system that has to run longer to provide the same amount of heat.
