Get Heat Back with Simple Furnace Repair Tips

2 Jul

Suffering through a cold night isn’t something that one would want to experience. When your home’s furnace has a problem, it’s often a smart idea to call the professionals immediately. However, before you spend your money, it wouldn’t hurt to try a few things first to get your heating system going again.

  • Furnace Doesn’t Heat. The most basic problem that furnace owners face is when a furnace just doesn’t warm anything. This can probably be traced to a wrongly-set thermostat. If it is at the temperature that you want, the problem can be traced to it being faulty or the pilot light is out. Just relight the pilot light if it has gone out, but for a broken thermostat, you’ll need professional repair service.
  • Noisy Furnace. Furnaces are supposed to be quiet. If you start hearing clanking noises inside your furnace, there’s definitely something wrong in there. It’s usually in the furnace motor, so all you have to do is to check it to see if the belts need replacement or any of the parts need lubrication.
  • Furnace Turns Itself On or Off. This problem is often due to a dirty filter. All you’ll need to do is to replace your air filter or to clean it. Do this regularly to avoid the reoccurrence of the problem.
