Ignition Problem

The latest generation of gas furnaces uses either a hot surface ignition or intermittent pilot to turn on. These two are more efficient compared to standing pilot lights because they do not require a consistent supply of gas to keep the furnace working. However, the igniter that holds the light may not last a long time. This piece of metal may fail any time thus, affecting the entire ignition system. If your furnace suddenly malfunctioned, the ignition might be the cause.

Blower and Belt Issues

Does your furnace create a hissing or high pitched sound? There are two possible reasons why your furnace produce that irritating sound – either the blower is damaged or the blower belt is worn out. Blower-related issues on your heating system aren’t your typical do-it-yourself tasks. The best way to address them is through the help of a certified HVAC repair technician.

Broken Heat Exchangers

You will know if the problem lies in the heat exchangers because your furnace blows cold air instead of warm air. If this is the issue, it’s possible that the heat exchanger has been damaged, cracked or concealed with dirt and debris. The thin metal surrounding it might have rusted due to frequent exposure to moisture. But don’t worry; we got your back on this problem!

A thorough inspection of the furnace is required to identify the cause of this issue. And since you are not qualified to do it yourself, you will need professionals to assist you.
