Picture this, you come home after a long day at the office. All you want to do is cuddle up with a good book and then hit the hay. However, the moment you walk in, you are hit with a cold blast of air. That can only mean one thing–the furnace is not working. No homeowner wants to deal with this. Below are the most common furnace problems and how to prevent them from occurring in your home.
Reduced Airflow Due To Dirty and Clogged Air Filters
To the average homeowner, forgetting to change the furnace air filter may not seem like a big deal. However, it allows your air filters to accumulate dirt and dust. A dirty air filter will only impede air flow. To prevent this from occurring, be sure to change or clean air filters on a monthly basis.
Furnace Inefficiencies and Breakdowns Due To A Lack Of Maintenance
Some people think that if they purchase an expensive furnace, it won’t need maintenance. It simply isn’t true. All furnaces need to be professionally maintained. If they are not, inefficient performance and breakdowns are likely. Having your furnace inspected annually by a professional will keep the unit in tip top shape.
No Heat Due To A Broken Thermostat
Your thermostat controls the temperature of your home. It tells your furnace how much heat it should expel. If your thermostat is not working, your furnace will not work either. When there is no heat in your house, check the thermostat first. After all, the problem might be with your thermostat, as opposed to the furnace.
