Why Did My Furnace Stop Working?
A furnace can stop operating for a variety of reasons. A dirty flame sensor or malfunctioning thermocouple can shut down the ignition system to avoid gas accumulations, while a damaged igniter or a blown-out pilot light will prevent the burners from lighting. A clogged air filter can cause the heat exchanger to overheat, shutting the furnace down, or a damaged control board can prevent the system from operating at all. To learn the exact cause, you should call a professional.
How Do You Fix a Gas Furnace?
The repairs necessary for your furnace will depend on the cause of the problem. Poor airflow or heat output can often be fixed by replacing the air filter, cleaning the burners, cleaning the blower assembly, or replacing malfunctioning zone dampers. Ignition problems can often be solved by replacing a thermocouple, cleaning the flame sensor, or replacing the igniter. Combustion problems can often be repaired by cleaning the burners, sealing flue leaks, or making adjustments to controls. Only a professional will be able to determine the repairs that are required.
How Do You Maintain a Gas Furnace?
For most furnaces, a typical maintenance service involves replacing the air filter, cleaning the blower assembly, cleaning the burners, inspecting the heat exchanger and flue, and checking the electrical system. The thermostat will also be tested, combustion gases and airflow will be measured, and many other steps will be taken to ensure the efficient and safe operation of the furnace. Every system is unique, and the required maintenance will vary depending on the manufacturer’s recommended procedures and schedule. This routine is best left to a heating professional and isn’t DIY-friendly.
Do Gas Furnaces Require Annual Maintenance?
Routine furnace maintenance should be performed at least once a year to avoid breakdowns, unnecessary repairs, and safety issues like excessive carbon monoxide output. It is a good idea to have your furnace serviced just before the heating season begins, to ensure it operates properly, efficiently, and safely when you need it, as well as just after the end of the heating season, to repair any wear and damage that may have occurred over the winter. Regular maintenance can help you save energy, reduce your heating costs, and extend the life of your furnace.
