Top 5 Furnace and Heating Problems in Savannah

February 03, 2015

We have discussed common air conditioning problems, now we’d like to share the common heating problems Savannah homeowners often call Coastal Service Experts about. Although there are theoretically hundreds of causes why your Savannah home’s furnace or heating system may need to be repaired. Below is a list of the top five complications that may cause your furnace or heating equipment to break down:

1. Thermostat malfunctions causing no heat, fan spinning or comfort problems

2. Air circulation problems from fan motors, belts and bearings, causing furnace overload or poor heating control

3. Old and clogged filters which develops airflow and comfort problems

4. Pilot light or furnace ignition issues, resulting in spotty or no heat

5. Inconsistent maintenance history may cause unanticipated breakdowns, poor comfort or higher energy costs (in addition to emmense homeowner frustration!)


All of these common issues can be resolved by a professionally qualified, NATE-certified technician. Technicians from Coastal Service Experts can quickly detect the problem area and make the needed repairs. Purchasing a
precision tune-up or maintenance plan could protect you from almost all heating problems that leave you with no heat or low comfort levels. During a tune-up, all the components are checked and serviced so they work correctly and at top efficiency during the heating season. Vital items like Carbon Monoxide checks, plenty of combustion air, equipment clearances, and equipment safety are also top elements to the tune-up process. Most importantly – safety first! Never forget that furnaces of any age may pose safety hazards from combustion or gases, particularly if a NATE-certified technician has not maintained the equipment on a scheduled basis.
