What Furnace Repairs You Might Expect

Of course, we hope you don’t need to call us for repairs during the winter. If you’re part of our Comfort Club and had the furnace tuned-up in fall, chances are good you’ll enjoy trouble-free furnace operation for the rest of the winter. But there’s no way to guarantee this 100%. You might need these services from our technicians:

  • Fixing a failed ignition system: New furnaces have replaced standing pilot lights with electronic ignition systems. These are more dependable and help conserve energy. But they can fail as well, such as cracking, and this means the burners won’t ignite at all. In most cases, the ignition system will need a professional to replace it.
  • Repairing the blower motor: The main mechanical component in a gas furnace is the motor powering the blower fan. The strain on the motor can cause it to burn out (especially if it hasn’t had regular maintenance). If the motor starts to give off shrieking sounds, repair technicians may be able to fix it before it fails. Otherwise, the motor must be replaced.
  • Cleaning the burners: Over time, dust, dirt, and other grime will start to build-up on the burners. Keeping the furnace filter clean with regular changes can help slow this down, but you may eventually find the furnace providing poor heat because it’s struggling to fire up its burners. HVAC professionals can detach the burner assembly to clean it. (Do not attempt to clean the burners yourself!)
  • Replacing failed heating elements: Here’s a repair for people who use an electric furnace. The various heating elements in the furnace can fail due to electrical problems, resulting in a loss of heating power. As with an electrical repair, and professional must handle the replacement. The technician may also find out the trouble is with the sequencer rather than the heating elements and repair that.
  • Fixing gas line issues: There are many reasons not to attempt to repair a gas furnace on your own, but the biggest is because of the danger of potential gas leaks. If your furnace isn’t coming on or can’t keep up with your household comfort needs, the trouble may be with the gas line/ You want a licensed professional to handle the necessary repairs.
