The Most Common Gas Furnace Problems

by | Aug 14, 2018 | Heating and Air Conditioning

The heating system and furnaces of our homes are not as sturdy as we probably would like them to be. Whether it is malfunctions, or just plain old age that gets to them, these furnaces are surprisingly fragile if the right pressure is applied to the right place. But obviously, like any machine, some malfunctions are more common than others. As for what these are, if you are looking for gas furnace repair in Ajax ON, here are the issues you most likely have.

Lacking Maintenance

The important thing to remember about home heating systems, and furnaces in particular, is that the story doesn’t end after you have it installed. You must practice constant upkeep and maintenance in order to ensure that everything runs smoothly. The people who installed it will most likely leave instructions on how to maintain the furnace, but if they don’t it can easily be found online. Failure to do this will result in unexpected breakdowns, increased energy costs, and overall a poorly performing unit and rising blood pressure on your end.

Wear and Tear

By which this refers to mechanical wear and tear. One of the main factors behind age being the killer of most furnaces is the age of the machine contributes to how much wear and tear the machine is experiencing. Parts just break down over time, there’s nothing you can do to stop that. And when they do, the rest of the machine follows like a house of cars, taking out one part causes the whole thing to fail is left unchecked. Wear and tear on certain parts of the vehicle will in turn cause issues with other parts such as bearings and belts, which then cause furnaces to overheat.

Pilot or Ignition Control Issues

If the ignition or pilot light controls in your furnace are malfunctioning, then no fire is being made, and thus the furnace isn’t doing its job. Which is a malfunction if ever there was one. Most ignition systems, be they hot surface ignitors, or intermittent pilot lights, run on electricity, so when they electrical signal stops coming, the fire turns off for safety reasons. As such, if there is a problem in the furnace’s connection to the power grid, that may explain why your furnace isn’t doing what you want it to do.
