What’s Wrong With My Furnace?
From lack of maintenance to mechanical failure, there could be many reasons your furnace isn’t working properly. Let’s talk about a few reasons your furnace might need a visit from 1st Choice.
Your filter is dirty. A filter that hasn’t been changed or cleaned can easily impede the performance of your furnace and cause it to use more energy to work than should be needed.
Your furnace is short cycling. If you hear your furnace turning on, off and then on again more frequently than you are used to, there’s a good chance your furnace is short cycling because of a clogged filter, improper air flow or a bad thermostat setting.
Your heat exchanger is cracked. This is a serious problem that requires immediate repair. Heat exchanger cracks can cause dangerous carbon monoxide leaks.
There’s a problem with your electric ignition or pilot light. This can be caused by a number of reasons but will prevent adequate heat from getting into your home.
The thermostat is malfunctioning. This can easily lead to issues with comfort levels and might be easily resolved by replacing or repairing the thermostat.
Your blower belt has slipped or is frayed. If you’re hearing a loud high pitched sound, there’s a good chance this has happened.
Your pilot light is yellow or flickering. This can be a sign of danger as the light can be yellow because of carbon monoxide levels. You’ll want to power the furnace off and call 1st Choice immediately.
