Keeping Your HVAC System Free and Clear

After our heater stopped working altogether last winter, we realized that it might be time to consult with a professional. We called a family friend who is also an HVAC contractor and he came out right away to see what he could do. After taking a look at things, he told us that our vents were almost completely blocked with dust and dirt. He recommended a vent cleaning company to come out and help, and they removed loads of debris the next day with specialized suction tools. After that, our HVAC system ran almost perfectly. This blog is all about the importance of keeping your HVAC system free, clear, and functional.

About Furnace Issues

Catching furnace repairs right away can be much better than figuring out something's going on later. Here is a guide that helps you learn more about common furnace problems and other issues related to your furnace: 

There is no heating

The most obvious sign that something has gone wrong with the heating is a complete lack of warmth coming from the system. If it seems not to work at all, you can check the fuse to make sure it hasn't blown. If it has, reset it. If this doesn't fix the problem, then you need to have a professional come take a look. 

The heating is uneven throughout the house

If there are some areas of the home that aren't getting the proper amount of heat, then this indicates you should have a technician come out, because there is something happening with the system. 

There are new sounds

You never want to hear anything new from your furnace. When there are new sounds, it means changes, and changes happening to a furnace can spell out big problems. Some sounds you may hear include whistling, whooshing, and banging. 

The pilot light keeps going out

There are a number of reasons why your pilot light may be going out. One reason may be that the pilot orifice may be dirty. Another reason might be that there is an issue with the thermocouple, and it may need to be replaced. A technician will know what's wrong and will be able to take care of it for you. 

The furnace keeps turning off

If your furnace keeps turning off, then this can indicate a serious problem with the system that you want to have someone come out to look at immediately. There might be low airflow that can be caused by a few different things. However, this problem can cause the system to overheat. 

There is leaking water

If your furnace is leaking water, it may just be a bit of condensation However, if you see that there is more water than what you would think condensation could cause, then this may be cause for concern. You want to have someone come out to make sure there isn't a leak. If there is, then they will be able to repair things for you. 

Conclusion

Any worry you have regarding your furnace should cause you to call someone to take a look. Even if there is nothing wrong, you will want to learn why your furnace is doing what it is, so you don't worry in the future. Also, this is the best way to make sure things do get fixed that are wrong.
