Common Furnace Problems in Nashville

January 09, 2017

We’ve told you about some of Nashville’s usual heating and furnace problems before, but we’re back with some more issues that could cause your heating equipment to break down in the middle of this awful cold.

Lack of Maintenance

Not only does annual system maintenance help your furnace run up to 30% more efficiently and lengthen the lifespan of the equipment, it’s also required by most manufacturers to continue your equipment’s warranty. For both those reasons, you should definitely invest in annual furnace tune-ups. Catching little issues early can help stop them from becoming major (expensive!) furnace problems.

System Wear and Tear

If you’re running your heating system all winter long to remain warm, typical wear and tear on the components is to be expected – primarily in older heating equipment. Stress on your belts and bearings can cause the system to overheat or result in malfunctions with the fan motors, resulting air flow problems.

Clogged Air Filters

If you use a typical furnace air filter, you should be changing it monthly. If you forget, it not only affects the air you are breathing, the dirt and bacteria accumulation could cause air flow restrictions inside the furnace. This will mean your furnace has to work much harder to warm your home, possibly putting too much strain on the components and, in turn, raising your heating bills .

Thermostat Malfunctions

Your thermostat is the appliance that tells your furnace when it’s time to kick on and fill your home with warm air, and when it’s time to shut off. If the thermostat is not calibrated or working properly, it could result in your furnace turning on and off every few minutes, operating all day long, or not coming on at all.
