Common Furnace Repair Problems and the Solutions

I have heard people say, ‘we did a furnace maintenance check only recently, and it broke down’.

Even if you take care of the machine, it can breakdown due to some other reason. In order to keep the furnace functioning, you ought to use them regularly as much as possible.

If your furnace repair Brampton is not starting, then you can try out the following troubleshooting before contacting the professionals.

Blocked Air Filter

This is a common furnace problem that users face while using it. If your furnace system is turning on however not blowing hot air could be a reason for the clogged or blocked air filter path. If you want to know which air filter works the best for your furnace, get in touch with us.

Broken Heat Exchange

If you aren’t checking your furnace over time, then it can develop cracks in the heat exchanger.

These cracks can release the dangerous carbon monoxide into your rooms, without any notice! All the furnace maintenance and tune-ups include this check; however, you must contact us for a quick CO leak inspection whenever you feel like.

Check the Thermostat

You won’t believe this, but people actually miss out on checking the thermostat setting! So, we had to include this one.

Go through your thermostat, check if the option ‘heat’ is enabled and the temperature set is 5 degrees higher than the room temperature. For the furnace repair Brampton, you can also check the battery of the thermostat – it might be that the battery is drained out.

Other than this, if your thermostat is not working – blow-dry or remove the dirt/debris present, set the correct date/time, and finally check the circuit breaker for any potential drop.

Inspect the Furnace Buttons

If both the air filter and thermostat are doing well, then check the power connections. Check out the furnace switch if someone has accidentally turned it off or check out the switch on the fuse box and turn it on if they aren’t.

Safety tip: make sure your hands and feet are dry while dealing with any of the furnace repairing stages.

Furnace Ignition Problem

If your high-efficiency furnace has a pilot light or the electronic ignition control, then this eliminates the need for a constant flame! This saves a lot of energy!

A faulty ignition control can cause a lot of machine and power wastage than you can imagine. Even the clog or blocks inside the furnace system can affect the ignition pilot. If there is an ignition problem, restore and get them working as early as possible!

If there is no change after the above steps, then this says the circuit box got tripped. We won’t recommend you test the tripped circuit by yourself, you can get in touch with us for the solution.

Poor airflow with blocked vents

Can you notice a decrease in the quality and amount of air passed from the furnace? This could be possibly due to the blocked vents and clogged airflow path that you could correct by yourself.
