5 Common Furnace Problems and Repair

Air Anytime, LLC has been receiving a lot of reports on furnace problems as the cold fall and winter seasons arrive. And over the years, the same issues have been depriving homes with the right comfort and convenience.

Let us share with you these five common furnace problems experienced by many Fort Lauderdale, FL homeowners and what should be done about them.

  1. Dirty Filters

A clogged air filter is one of the worst nightmares of your furnace. This makes the system work harder and longer to heat your home. Additionally, dirty filters can also be the reason why you are breathing unhealthy air inside. Don’t worry! Filter replacement is an easy task that you can do yourself. But if you are not sure about it, you can always ask for an expert’s guidance.

  1. Malfunctioning Thermostat

The brain of your heating system is the thermostat. It controls and manages the temperature inside your home properly by telling your furnace how much heating your home needs. There are times, however, that thermostats fail due to drained batteries, wiring issues, and dirt accumulation. Have a regular inspection of your thermostat to ensure its proper operation.

  1. Insufficient Heating

There are times that not enough heat is given to your home no matter how long your furnace works. This is a common heating concern and needs professional guidance to be fixed. Insufficient heating may result in an improperly sized unit and the presence of leaks in the system. Hire an HVAC expert to diagnose and fix the issue.

  1. Noisy Furnace

There are normal sounds that furnaces produce during its operation, but there are also those that already signify issues in the system. If you hear a loud rumbling, squeaking and rattling noise, be sure to call a professional to check your unit. These are indications that repair is needed either on the mechanical or electrical components of your system.

  1. Frequent Cycling

Does your furnace constantly turn “On” and “Off”? Continuous cycling can lead to system breakdown. This is usually caused by dirty filters, improper airflow, and a bad thermostat setting.
