Gas Furnaces: Maintenance Issues

The aHeaters Mechanicsburg PAdvantages of a gas furnace are numerous as many homeowners can tell you. They typically heat your home better and to higher temperatures, which means they use less energy to heat your home. Due to using less energy, gas furnaces typically mean savings on your energy bills. However, they do still require some basic maintenance and sometimes there are some issues surrounding them.

  1. Pilot Burn-Out – If your pilot light is burning out frequently, there may be a problem with the coupling or the problem could be as simple as a draft coming in from outside. Either way, this is an issue you want to fix as soon as possible to keep the heating of your home consistent throughout the winter months.
  2. Furnace is too noisy – Gas furnaces are generally pretty quiet during operation so if your furnace is making a great deal of noise, you’re going to want to have that checked out. If you’re hearing a squeak, that could be indicative of a motor issue. Other noises can signify parts being off balance or wearing down. In any event, a noisy furnace is a cause for concern and a specialist should be called to check the function of the unit.
  3. Thermostat Doesn’t Match – Unfortunately, when it comes to thermostats and gas furnaces, they don’t always match. When installing a new thermostat, ensure that the model is compatible with your furnace. Your best bet in this instance is to contact a professional to avoid any potential issues.
