Imagine it’s a cold January night and all of a sudden your furnace stops working.  No one wants to survive a night with no heat in your home.  That’s why Gillece recommends seasonal maintenance for your furnace so you never have to experience that.

By knowing what the common furnace problems are, you can take proactive measures to prevent them from occurring.  Annual furnace maintenance and inspections can prevent unexpected problems and breakdowns.  They help the appliance run reliably efficient.

Here are some common furnace problems that can easily be prevented with a seasonal check:

  • Dirty Filters: Dirty or clogged air filters can reduce airflow making the furnace work harder.
  • Wear and Tear: Normal wear and tear can cause problems such as airflow not circulating correctly and heat control-related problems such as overheating.  A warranty can prevent you being charged for these repairs.
  • Circuit Breaker: A blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker can cause the furnace to stop working.
  • Pilot Light: Clogged or faulty electrical components can lead to the ignition control or pilot light having problems.
  • Natural Gas or Propane: A malfunction with the gas pressure regulator can cause problems with the valve or gas feed.  This can be dangerous so if you suspect this being a problem, make sure you call a professional!
  • Thermostat: Issues with your thermostat can lead to future problems with the fan and comfort levels in your home.
