Don’t Be Left Out in the Cold This Winter: Get Your Annual Inspection Now!

Don’t Be Left Out in the Cold This Winter: Get Your Annual Inspection Now!

With the blustery winds of winter getting ready to nip at the back door, it is time to be sure your furnace is in top operating condition. There’s nothing worse than coming home after a long day at the office and be greeted by a chilly uninviting house. Not only is it uncomfortable but it could lead to other problems, as well, such as pipes freezing up. Just what causes a furnace to fail, you may wonder? Let’s take a look at 3 of common problem areas for furnaces and what can be done about it, if it happens.

Failure to maintain equipment

We are all familiar with how important it is to keep our vehicles maintained. We are sure to have the oil changed, tires rotated, and inspections completed, but how about our HVAC system? It is probably the largest and most costly appliance in your home and must be maintained properly. Without annual check-ups with a certified technician, you risk a furnace problem when you least expect it.

Mechanical Issues

Another problem that may result in a malfunctioning furnace is mechanical issues. Your furnace is composed of a multitude of pieces, which include belts, bearings, nuts, and bolts. As your furnace operates day after day, stress and wear are placed upon these parts and it’s only natural these would break down over time. You may hear loud noises coming from your furnace when one of these parts breaks down or your furnace may stop completely. Whatever the case may be, it is time for your certified technician to take a look.

Thermostat failure

Your thermostat has an important role in the comfort of your home. Without the thermostat functioning properly, your home may become very cold or too warm. The thermostat serves as the brain of the furnace, telling it when to turn on and when to turn off. If you notice the temperature you have your thermostat set for is not matching the temperature in your home, then it is time to have a technician check it out.
