No one likes the frigid feelings a furnace problem can cause. As systems age, wear and tear is inevitable. The good news is, having regular service performed on your HVAC Wilmington system can help prevent unexpected breakdowns. But what happens if you forget to schedule this service and your furnace has an issue? Here’s a look at some of the most common furnace problems.

  • Electric Ignition or pilot control problems
  • Loud or rattling noises coming from the furnace
  • A continually running blower
  • Frequent cycling
  • Low heat output
  • Faulty thermostat

Easy Fixes

First things first. If your furnace came to a sudden stop and the thermostat screen is blank, check your circuit breaker to see if it tripped or blew a fuse. If that’s not the issue, it should come as no surprise that many furnace issues are in fact caused by day-today ware and tear. Once again, regular maintenance performed by a professional HVAC repair Wilmington company like All In 1 can help you extend the life of your system and stave off breakdowns. You can also support your furnace functionality by regularly replacing air filters. The easier it is for air to circulate, the less strain you put on your system. If you find your system cycling between the “on” and “off” modes, this can often be an indication of a clogged filter. The same goes for a furnace not heating well enough…once again…check your filters.

When to Call a Pro

Hear a rattling, rumbling or squeaking sound? This is not normal and could be an indication of a mechanical problem or clogged burner. It’s best to have an HVAC expert analyze the situation. Sometimes, the thermostat functionality is compromised. When this happens, issues with he fan and of course, comfort levels often occur. It might be a simple electrical fix, but it could be time to have it replaced by a professional who can also assess your system efficiency while they are in your home. Electric ignition, pilot light control issues and a constantly running blower are all also good reasons to go ahead and call an expert so you can keep you some safe and cozy. As always, if you suspect any issue pertaining to a fuel source such as natural gas or propane, call a professional.
