Why Isn’t My Furnace Working?

To keep your system running efficiently and effectively, it is important to be able to identify certain signs of a malfunctioning furnace so you can act before something happens, especially when there are extreme temperatures outside that could do major damage to your home (i.e. pipe freezing or other property damage).

There are many things that can be causing the problem. Of course, some of them are very expensive, but many of them are easy fixes. So don’t put it off, the problem won’t go away and it is better to get it fixed sooner than later!

Furnace troubleshooting tips:

  • Check your air filter - Sometimes it can be as easy as changing the filter on the heating unit. This should be done every month. This is simple to do and can often be the reason for furnace malfunction. It is a good idea to buy several filters at once and have them ready to change on a regular schedule.
  • Check your thermostat - The thermostat can also be a problem and it is also an easy fix. Make sure it is clean and dry. Set the temperature and let the heater run for about twenty minutes. It should be up to proper temperature in that amount of time. If batteries are part of the thermostat, try changing them.
  • Check your circuit breakers - Sometimes the cause of a furnace problem is simply that the circuit breaker has tripped. Check your circuit breaker to make sure they are all on. 

If after checking all these things, the heater still seems to have a problem, it might be time to call a professional heating company for service in Aurora. They will be able to find the problem in a short amount of time and often fix it right on the spot. If the heater is several years old, it might need to be replaced. Don’t let the cost be a deterrent to making that call to a reputable heating company. Most of the time it is an easy fix and in no time at all the home will be cozy and warm again.

Signs Your Furnace Needs Repair in Aurora

Identifying a potential issue is one thing, but trying to fix the actual furnace yourself is not recommended – not only can you do severe damage to the unit, but if there are major issues, then you may induce a possible hazard. Furnace repair often involves electricity and the unit runs on high voltage. In truth, if your furnace breaks down, the first thing you should do is shut off all power to the device and contact a specialist right away.

Be on the lookout for these signs of furnace failure:

  • Strange noises. Most furnaces make some noise, like the blower turn off and on. However, if your furnace makes unusual sounds like banging, groaning, or hissing then there might be an ignition issue, a loose belt or other malfunctioning components.
  • Heat loss. If your furnace does not seem to kick out extra heat when you turn the temperature up then you may have a problem such as a damaged thermostat, a clogged system, or a more severe issue. Sometimes all that is needed is a thorough cleaning of the furnace. Also, you may have a broken thermostat if your furnace turns off and on a lot.
  • Higher than normal electric bill. If your electric bill is higher than normal, then it may indicate that your furnace is not functioning properly. An inefficient system can be caused by numerous things. It is best to have a qualified specialist identify the problem.
  • The furnace does not stay on. Generally, if your furnace does not stay on or if it is hard to get started, then you may need to fix the pilot light, replace the thermostat, repair the fan motor, or replace damaged wiring.
