Common Furnace Problems in Oakville

January 09, 2017

We’ve told you about some of Oakville’s typical heating and furnace problems before, but we’re back with a few more issues that could cause your heating equipment to go out in the middle of this miserable cold.

Lack of Maintenance

Not only does annual heating maintenance help your furnace run up to 30% more efficiently and increase the lifespan of the equipment, it’s also demanded by most manufacturers to continue your equipment’s warranty. For these reasons, you should absolutely invest in routine furnace tune-ups. Catching little issues early can help keep them from becoming big (expensive!) furnace problems.

System Wear and Tear

If you’re running your heating system all winter long to keep warm, normal wear and tear on the components is to be expected – especially in older furnaces. Wear and tear on your belts and bearings can cause the system to overheat or result in issues with the fan motors, resulting air flow problems.

Clogged Air Filters

If you use a typical furnace air filter, you should be replacing it monthly. If you forget, it not only affects the air you breathe, the dirt and bacteria growth could cause air flow restrictions in the heating system. This will result in your furnace working much harder to warm your home, possibly putting too much wear and tear on the components and, in turn, raising your heating bills .

Thermostat Malfunctions

Your thermostat is the gadget that tells your heating system when it’s time to come on and fill your home with warm air, and when it’s time to stop. If the thermostat is not programmed or working accurately, it could result in your furnace turning on and off every few minutes, going all day long, or not turning on at all.

If you have any issues with your furnace regarding these or other typical furnace problems, or want to schedule a tune-up to make sure your equipment is ready to keep you safe and warm all winter long, call Abbey Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning and 289-813-5566 today and we’ll make sure your furnace is operating properly.
