Common Furnace Problems in Cleveland

January 09, 2017

We’ve reviewed some of Cleveland’s usual heating and furnace problems previously, but we’re back with a couple more issues that could cause your heating system to break down in the middle of this miserable cold.

Lack of Maintenance

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

System Wear and Tear

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

Clogged Air Filters

If you use a typical furnace air filter, you should be swaping it out monthly. If you aren’t, it not only affects the air your family is breathing, the dirt and bacteria accumulation could cause air flow restrictions in the furnace. This will mean your furnace has to work much harder to warm your home, likely putting too much stress on the components and, in turn, raising your heating bills .

Thermostat Malfunctions

Your thermostat is the gadget that tells your furnace when it’s time to turn on and fill your home with warm air, and when it’s time to shut off. If the thermostat is not set or working accurately, it could cause your furnace to turn on and off every few minutes, operating all day long, or not kicking on at all.
