Andover Heating Repair Tip: Common Issues
No matter what type of furnace you have, it will eventually run into problems. Here are a few of the most common you may eventually encounter.
Clogged air filter – Probably the most common cause of furnace issues is a clogged air filter. Your furnace uses an air filter to keep large contaminants like dust, dirt and insect parts out of the system. If it gets clogged it will restrict the flow of air into your system and cause it to have to work harder to pull in air. This will reduce your comfort and reduce the efficiency of the system as well.
Not enough heating – Insufficient heating is another common problem that is often caused by a clogged air filter. However, it could also be that your furnace’s burner is out, that the thermocouple is faulty or that the fan motor is broken.
Noises – If you have a gas-fired furnace pay attention to any rattling noises that you might hear. Rattling can sometimes indicate that you have a crack in your heat exchanger which might be allowing carbon monoxide to leak into your home. Also, squealing is usually caused by a bad fan motor belt; rumbling can be caused by unburned fuel in the combustion chamber.
Whether you have a natural gas, propane or electric furnace, call the Andover heating repair experts at Air Mechanical. We will make sure that your system gets repaired quickly so that you can get back to enjoying the comforts of your home.
