Top 5 Furnace and Heating Problems in Oakville

February 03, 2015

We have discussed common air conditioning problems, now we’d like to share the common heating problems Oakville homeowners often call Abbey Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning about. Although there are quite possibly hundreds of reasons why your Oakville home’s furnace or heating system may need to be repaired. Here are the top five problems that may cause your furnace or heating equipment to break down:

1. Thermostat breaks producing no heat, fan spinning or comfort problems

2. Airflow problems from fan motors, belts and bearings, causing furnace excessive heat or poor heating control

3. Old and clogged filters that cause airflow and comfort problems

4. Pilot light or furnace ignition issues, resulting in intermittent or no heat

5. Lack of regular service may cause unanticipated breakdowns, poor comfort or escalated energy costs (not to mention homeowner frustration!)


Every one of these common issues can be addressed by a professionally qualified, NATE-certified technician. Technicians from Abbey Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can quickly spot the problem area and make the required repairs. Purchasing a
precision tune-up or maintenance plan could prevent almost all heating problems that result in no heat or low comfort levels. During a tune-up, all the components are checked and serviced so they work correctly and at top efficiency during the heating season. Important items like Carbon Monoxide checks, plenty of combustion air, equipment clearances, and equipment safety are also key elements to the tune-up process. Most importantly – safety first! Never forget that furnaces of any age can pose safety hazards from combustion or gases, particularly if a NATE-certified technician has not maintained the equipment on a scheduled basis.
