What Are the Most Common Furnace Repairs?
If you’re regularly maintaining your furnace, it will be easier to spot these common furnace repairs before they become bigger issues. If you notice any of the following with your furnace, it might be time to schedule furnace repairs with one of our experienced furnace technicians.
Furnace Blowing Cold Air
There are a lot of common furnace problems that could be affecting your furnace’s heat output.
Before you decide you’ve got a faulty furnace, take a look at the thermostat (it may be broken), the furnace’s pilot light (is it on?), furnace filter (ensure you’re replacing them often), gas supply, or air ducts (which may be leaking). We’ve covered these issues in more depth, so take a look at all the possibilities and how to fix your furnace blowing cold air.
Furnace Smells Bad
There might be an innocent explanation for a strange smell coming from your furnace—dust from being off all summer, or simply “new furnace smell”—but any signs of sewage, smoke, or hot rubber or plastic might indicate a serious problem that needs immediate attention.
Furnace Leaking Water
A puddle underneath your furnace is a sure sign you’re in need of furnace repair service. The cause for a leaking furnace will depend on what type of furnace you have, and there can be several reasons for the leak.
We suggest you immediately turn off your furnace and call for professional help—emergency furnace repair isn’t something you should be DIYing. Check out this article on what steps to take when you notice your furnace is leaking.
Furnace Keeps Shutting Off
In order to maintain the temperature you’ve set on your thermostat, a furnace will typically cycle on and off 3-8 times per order. If you’re noticing that your furnace is switching on and off much more frequently, or is even doing so every few minutes, you’re likely to be in need of furnace repair services.
While it could be as simple as your thermostat setting or a blocked filter, it could also be something more serious like frozen pipes. It’s best to get a professional in to evaluate the type of furnace repair that will be required. Here are a few reasons why your furnace is shutting off.
Dirty Furnace Filter
While most furnace repair should be left to the experts, there are a few furnace maintenance tasks that are easy enough to tackle yourself.
Changing out a dirty furnace filter is one that should be done every three months or so (depending on the type of filter and the size of your house), and will make a big difference in your home’s air quality.
If you suspect your furnace isn’t working as well as it should, checking your filter should be one of the first steps you take. Improve your furnace’s overall health and longevity—here’s our guide on how to change your furnace filter.
How Long Do Furnaces Last?
If you’ve recently moved into an older house, or if you’ve been in yours for many years, your furnace may have seen better days. Determining whether to repair or replace your furnace can be tricky, especially since you already have plenty of expenses and costs as a homeowner already.
If you’ve been conducting annual furnace maintenance, you should expect your furnace to last 15 to 20 years. The best thing a homeowner can do is to keep an eye on any problems and get ahead of them before they become worse—furnace repairs are likely far less expensive than buying an entirely new unit.
If your furnace is exhibiting some of the above problems, treat them as a warning sign. Schedule furnace repair as soon as you can, and keep your furnace lasting for many more years to come.
Dangers of DIY Furnace Repair
There’s plenty of good reasons to become a DIY homeowner, at least when it comes to some things. Saving money, learning a new skill, or just the achievement of doing it yourself are all great reasons to tackle a household project.
But there are some areas of your home that should be left to the professionals, because a DIY approach can be flat-out dangerous. Furnace repair is one of those areas. Natural gas is highly flammable, and without the proper training and know-how, a simple furnace repair could turn deadly.
Furnace fires are responsible for roughly 22% of home fires in Alberta. There are countless stories of homes exploding and catching fire after the owners decided to save a bit of money on HVAC repairs and attempt to do it themselves.
Husky’s furnace repair technicians have a Gas Fitter’s license; we’re trained to properly handle gas lines and systems so that we can ensure any furnace repairs are done safely. We know how to prevent gas leaks, carbon monoxide poisoning, further damage to your furnace, and personal injuries that come from DIY repairs.
Things to Check on Your Furnace Before You Call Us
Please don’t open your furnace to examine it yourself – you need to have training and licensing in order to do this safely. That being said, there are a couple of “gotchas” that homeowners can quickly check:
- Your thermostat is set to “heat”. This can be an issue in the fall for new homeowners.
- The power switch on your furnace is set to “on”. Your furnace needs a bit of electrical power in order to run, and this switch turns off the power in an emergency or if a technician is going to work on it. This switch can get turned off by accident. Check on the side of the furnace, or near the furnace on the wall.
- The circuit for your furnace is on in your electrical panel. If electrical issues have developed, this may have been tripped. If it trips again, there may be an issue with the furnace or with the electrical wiring.
There are other issues, like blocked furnace vents or dirty filters that can cause temporary problems, but it’s better to call us for both safety and repair reasons.
