What are Common Furnace Problems?
The most common furnace problems are often the ones that people tend to ignore, until the furnace stops working altogether. Remember, a small problem can hint at a deeper, underlying issue in your furnace. Handling them in advance can help you save time and money on potentially avoided repairs.
Here are some of the more common problems we handle for our customers:
- Control problems in the ignition of the furnace
- Lack of airflow, often caused by clogged furnace filters
- Overheating and lack of heating control
- Cracked heat exchanger
- Issues with the thermostat
How Long Do Furnaces Last?
The average life of a furnace ranges from 12 to 15 years. However, if you have been maintaining your unit, it can go on to last for 20 years, but if the maintenance is particularly poor, you will find your furnace needing replacement within 7 years or so. The importance of regular and proper maintenance on your furnace can never be over-stressed. It will not only prolong the life of the furnace, but also make it more energy efficient and effective.
How Can You Avoid Problems in the Future?
To make sure your furnace runs at optimal levels, we recommend having it adjusted by a technician on a regular basis. Regular maintenance will ensure that the internal parts do not get corroded, and that the combustion process is efficient. We invite you to ask us any questions you have about your furnace and best maintenance practices.
