What are the Signs You Need Furnace Repair?
Furnace problems can range from minor issues that require small adjustments to complete system failure.

Why Is Your Furnace Blowing Cold Air?
Is your furnace blowing out cold, or lukewarm air? There are a couple of reasons why this could be happening.
Some reasons why your furnace is blowing out cold air include the following:
- Your thermostat settings are wrong
- Your furnace still needs some time to properly heat up
- Your air filters are dirty or clogged
- Your furnace has overheated
- You have leaky air ducts
- There is a clog if your furnace's condensate line
If your furnace is blowing out warm air, it's important to consult a professional who can properly inspect the situation and take care of the problem. Our experts will be able to detect whether your system needs professional cleaning or repair services.
Why is Your Furnace Not Turning On?
If your furnace is not turning on, several factors could be causing the issue.
Here are some common reasons:
- Thermostat Issues: Check your thermostat settings to ensure they are correctly set for heating. The thermostat might have a low battery, so replace the batteries if necessary. Additionally, make sure the set temperature is higher than the current room temperature.
- Circuit Breaker or Fuse Issues: A tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse can prevent the furnace from turning on. Check the circuit breaker panel and reset any tripped breakers. If you find a blown fuse, replace it with one of the same amperage.
- Pilot Light or Ignition Problems: If you have an older furnace with a pilot light, make sure it is lit. For newer furnaces with electronic ignition systems, issues with the ignition module or sensor can prevent ignition.
- Gas Supply Issues: Ensure that the gas supply to the furnace is turned on. If the gas valve is closed or there is a problem with the gas line, the furnace won't ignite.
- Faulty Thermostat Wiring: Check for any loose or damaged wires in the thermostat wiring. Damaged wires can disrupt communication between the thermostat and the furnace.
- Clogged Air Filter: A clogged or dirty air filter can restrict airflow, causing the furnace to overheat and shut off. Check the air filter and replace it if it's dirty.
- Blocked Exhaust Vent or Intake Pipe: Blocked vents or pipes can lead to a safety shutdown. Make sure the exhaust vent and intake pipe are clear of obstructions, such as debris or snow.
- Limit Switch Issues: The limit switch is a safety feature that shuts off the furnace if it overheats. If the switch is faulty, it may prevent the furnace from turning on. A professional technician can diagnose and replace a malfunctioning limit switch.
- Blower Motor Problems: Issues with the blower motor, such as a malfunction or a broken belt, can prevent the furnace from starting. A humming sound without the furnace igniting may indicate a problem with the motor.
- Faulty Control Board: The control board is the brain of the furnace, and if it's faulty, it may not send the necessary signals to start the furnace. Professional inspection and replacement may be required.
If you've checked the basic troubleshooting steps and the furnace still won't turn on, it's advisable to contact a licensed HVAC technician for a more in-depth diagnosis and repair.
Safety is paramount when dealing with heating systems, and professional expertise ensures a proper and safe resolution to the issue.
How Often Should I Schedule Furnace Maintenance?
It is recommended to schedule furnace maintenance at least once a year. Regular maintenance helps ensure that your furnace is running efficiently and can catch any potential issues before they become major problems.
What Should I Do if My Furnace Is Leaking Water?
If your furnace is leaking water, it is important to turn off the furnace and contact a professional HVAC technician. Leaking water can be a sign of a serious issue, such as a cracked heat exchanger, and should be addressed immediately.
How Can I Improve the Energy Efficiency of My Furnace?
To improve the energy efficiency of your furnace, you can: 1) Clean or replace the air filters regularly, 2) Ensure proper insulation in your home, 3) Use a programmable thermostat to optimize temperature settings, 4) Seal any air leaks in your ductwork, and 5) Schedule regular maintenance to keep your furnace running efficiently.
