Signs your furnace may need repair
Pinging, popping, squeaking, rattling and rumbling is not normal. They are signs of a problem such as an airflow reduction, improperly adjusted pilot light, an unlubricated blower motor, a loose panel, a worn belt, worn motor bearings or a clogged burner.
If your furnace does not blow air at all, the problem may lie with the thermostat, the blower motor, the run capacitor, furnace control board or transformer.
Conversely, if your furnace is constantly running and never shuts off, this can also be a sign that a repair is necessary. A gas furnace blower that does not turn off could also indicate a problem with a faulty limit control switch.

The dirty truth about air filters
One of the most common causes of a poorly performing furnace is a dirty or worn-out air filter. A dusty, dirty smell coming from your vents when the blower is another indication of a clogged filter.
When your air filter is clogged, your air handler must work harder to compensate for the blockage of air flow. In addition to increasing your power bill, the reduced air flow through your system can cause your heat exchanger to overheat and shut off too quickly.
If your furnace is not operating, it could also be the furnace safety switch that prevents the fan and burner from coming on while the access panel is removed. The furnace blower is also an essential component. It draws heat from the furnace and distributes it throughout your house. That’s why it’s crucial to keep the furnace blower well lubricated at all times.
A bad limit switch could cause the blower to run continuously, and as a result, significantly shorten the lifespan of the blower. A faulty ignition system such as those found on furnaces with a thermocouple can greatly impede your furnace’s ability to heat your home properly. Drafts or clogs in your heating system can result in your pilot light going out.
Our experienced service technicians can inspect your furnace, diagnose the problem and make the necessary repairs. They can inspect and clean the heat exchanger, high limit switch, combustion chamber, burners, jets, blower motor and fan, condensate lines, ignitor and flame sensor. They can also conduct a temperature differential test to measure the temperature of the air going into and leaving your furnace and do a combustion analysis of the exhaust checking levels of oxygen, carbon monoxide, and carbon dioxide.
