There’s no denying a broken furnace can be a major problem for any homeowner or business operator. Whether you have a conventional gas furnace or high-efficiency gas furnace, it’s easy for both minor and major problems to occur from time to time. At The Plumber, Heating & Cooling, our techs are skilled at making all types of furnace repairs to ensure your heating system is operating correctly. 

Some of the most common causes of broken furnaces include:

  • Broken thermostat. Thermostats can stop working due to wear and tear over time, resulting in your furnace running too frequently.
  • Dirty or clogged filters. While it’s normal for furnace filters to collect dirt, a build-up of debris can lead to an over-worked furnace. Regularly having air filters replaced will ensure your furnace can continue functioning at an optimal level.
  • Ignition failure. If the pilot light or igniter doesn’t work, your furnace won’t turn on. Annual inspection of the pilot light is key to detecting any issues before your furnace breaks.
  • Blower motor failure. The blower motor is the component of your heating system that circulates warm air throughout your home. Regularly having your ducts cleaned will allow your furnace’s blower motor to keep operating properly.

If you suspect your furnace is experiencing any of the problems above, it’s best to have your heating system inspected sooner than later. In many cases, rectifying small problems will prevent the occurrence of larger, more costly issues in the future.
