When your furnace isn’t working, it can be a major inconvenience. Not only is it uncomfortable to live without heat, but it can also be dangerous. That’s why it’s important to know who to call for your Phoenix furnace repair when your furnace breaks down.
Some Common Phoenix Furnace Issues
In order to ensure that your furnace is repaired quickly and correctly, it’s important to know what the most common issues are. Here are some of the most common problems that can occur with both electric and gas furnaces:
Electric Furnace Issues:
Broken or Faulty Wire – One of the most common issues with electric furnaces is a broken or faulty wire. This can be caused by a number of things, such as water damage, age, or wear and tear. If you suspect that your wire is broken, it’s important to call a technician right away, as this can be a dangerous issue.
Water Damage to the Electrical System – If your furnace is located in a damp area or if it’s been exposed to water, it’s possible that water damage may have occurred to the electrical system. This can cause a variety of problems, including short circuits and tripped breakers. If you think that your furnace might be experiencing water damage, contact a technician immediately.
Faulty Starting Capacitor – A capacitor is responsible for starting up the electric furnace motor. If this component is faulty, it can prevent the furnace from starting up properly. If you’re experiencing these issues, it’s important to have a technician take a look at your furnace.
Gas Furnace Issues:
Pilot Light Not Lighting – One of the most common issues with gas furnaces is a pilot light that won’t light. There are several reasons why this might happen, including a dirty pilot light or an issue with the thermocouple. If you’re having problems with your pilot light, it’s important to have a technician take a look at it as soon as possible.
Thermostat Needs Calibrating – A thermostat that isn’t calibrated correctly can result in incorrect feedback to your furnace. This can cause the furnace to cycle on and off more than necessary, which can lead to increased energy bills and unnecessary wear and tear on the system. If you think that your thermostat might need calibrating, contact a technician for assistance.
Heat-control Issues – Another common issue with gas furnaces is heat-control problems. This can be caused by anything from dirty filters to incorrect wiring. If you’re experiencing heat-control problems with your furnace, it’s important to have a technician take a look at it as soon as possible.
When Do your Phoenix Furnaces Need Repair?
An ailing furnace will usually issue a cry for help before it stops working altogether. Here are some of the ways your heater will warn you that trouble may be brewing:
- Odd or frightful furnace noises
- Escalating energy costs
- Lingering foul odors
