Common Furnace Problems in Savannah

January 09, 2017

We’ve told you about some of Savannah’s typical heating and furnace problems before, but we’re back with a couple more issues that could cause your furnace to break down in the middle of this awful cold.

Lack of Maintenance

Not only does seasonal system maintenance help your furnace run up to 30% more efficiently and lengthen the lifespan of the equipment, it’s also required by most manufacturers to continue your system’s warranty. For these reasons, you should really invest in annual furnace tune-ups. Catching little issues early can help stop them from becoming huge (expensive!) furnace problems.

System Wear and Tear

If you’re running your heating equipment all winter long to stay warm, typical wear and tear on the parts is to be expected – especially in older heating equipment. Wear and tear on your belts and bearings can cause the furnace to overheat or result in issues with the fan motors, resulting air flow problems.

Clogged Air Filters

If you use a typical furnace air filter, you should be swaping it out monthly. If you forget, it not only affects the air your family is breathing, the dirt and bacteria growth could cause air flow restrictions within the heating system. This will result in your furnace working much harder to warm your home, likely putting too much strain on the components and, in turn, raising your heating bills .

Thermostat Malfunctions

Your thermostat is the appliance that tells your furnace when it’s time to turn on and fill your home with warm air, and when it’s time to stop. If the thermostat is not programmed or working correctly, it could mean that your furnace is turning on and off every few minutes, running all day long, or not coming on at all.
