As we move into the colder months, you may want to assess your home’s heating system. Having repairs taken care of now can be a useful step and provide peace of mind down the road. At Breckinridge HVAC, our knowledgeable staff can help you learn more about preventative steps, maintaining your furnace, and replacing it if necessary.
Over the years, we have encountered a wide range of problems when servicing calls. However, there are a few common issues that we frequently hear from our customers. Fortunately, many of these can be quickly and effectively remedied. If your furnace seems to be working harder than usual, you may need to replace a dirty filter. Not only can having an older filter affect performance, but it could also lead to damage and higher bills each month. Another thing that you can do while maintaining your furnace is checking the thermostat settings and changing the batteries.
Some issues that you may be experiencing might require the help of professionals, such as a never-ending blower, endless cycling, and a squealing sound. If you have noticed any of these, the experts at Breckinridge HVAC are only a phone call away and can help you begin maintaining your furnace. To fix a never-ending blower, we may need to replace the limit switch. Endless cycling could be caused by improper airflow, a clogged filter, or a bad thermostat. Additionally, a squeal could be the result of a frayed or flipped blower belt. These are all issues that we can easily tackle.
However, some problems are more serious in nature and may show up if your system is older than ten years. A cracked heat exchanger can be prevented with regular maintenance, but if not, a crack could mean that your furnace is no longer producing adequate heat. A scraping from inside the furnace could also mean that the ball bearings are worn out. If you hear that, simply turn off your system and give us a call. There are many ways to go about repairing or maintaining your furnace and we can help you learn more about the various steps.
Outside of normal repairs that may be needed, a yellow pilot light is something that can signify a more dangerous problem. Seeing such a light often means that there is too much carbon monoxide inside your home. In this case, you should call a professional immediately after turning off the system. However, there are many ways that you can go about maintaining your furnace before such issues arise, including keeping the sun out, increasing airflow, and making sure that you do not change the temperature too frequently.
