A poorly maintained furnace can lead to:

  • Improper Air Flow – Dirty filters, closed off vents or furniture blocking return vents can all contribute to improper air flow. As a result, the lack of air crossing through the heat exchanger causes it to overheat, making it more prone to cracking.
  • Improper Manifold Pressure – Your gas valve controls the flow of gas into your burners. If it’s allowing too much gas, it can cause the same overheating condition as restricted air flow. Likewise, if it’s allowing too little gas, it increases run time and wears out the heat exchanger faster.
  • Improper Displacement of Condensation – This is most common in devices that have not been run (heat or cool) in a long time; they accumulate condensation in the heat exchanger, eventually rusting out the system. It is imperative that the heat exchanger isn’t cracked in order for it to separate the burner gas from the circulation air. Mixing the two will create carbon monoxide.

SIGNS YOU NEED FURNACE REPAIR

Some signs that you need New York furnace repair are more obvious, and others are more subtle. Any of the following issues are a good indication that you need to hire a furnace repair technician.

  • Low Heat Levels – If your furnace isn’t producing any heat at all, then it’s really just dead weight. But oftentimes, it will produce some heat, circulating luke warm air. If this is the case, the cause could be a breach in the ducts, clogged burners, or even a lack of fuel. A quality furnace service company should be able to determine the source easily.
  • Bad Air Flow – A lack of air flow can be a problem with the ducts, which will require duct cleaning or structural repairs. But other than that, it is usually a problem with your furnace fan or motor. A quality furniture service will be able to replace these parts.
  • Loud Noises – All furnaces create noise to some degree or other, but loud, strange noises outside of the norm can indicate an issue with the furnace. The cause could stem from a number of issues that your HVAC technician should be able to pinpoint.
  • High Bills – When your furnace stops working efficiently, there will be a correlating uptick in your energy bills. If you catch this, it is worth considering whether your furnace is the culprit. Other causes could be clogged vents, air leaks, or other issues.
