Homeowners spending money at the beginning of a New Year will hardly feel like a fresh start and you don’t expect to need repairs or replacements to your whole home HVAC system when you first purchase your home. However, this can happen. In order to avoid this, you want to be sure you know the current status of your furnace so that you can plan each year accordingly. To help, our professionals have provided a list of common questions to keep your furnace running in top-notch. Make your New Year stress-free and safe for your family by reading these common questions our professionals get asked this time of the year.  

 1. Why is My Furnace Not Lighting?

More often than not, pressing the reset button will usually do the trick If you try that and if that is not working, give us a call ASAP. It is dangerous to try to fight with this on your own. Seek out our service experts and remember, safety first. 

2. Why Does the Blower Keep Running?

When your furnace blower runs all the time, your heating system is consuming large amounts of energy. Lucky for us, there is a fast solution: all you have to do is clean the blower fan and the area around it; however if this issue persists it would mean that your blower will need to be fixed or replaced.  

3. Why is my Furnace Tripping the Breaker?

You must hear this one over and over. If this keeps happening to you, do not panic. It means your furnace worked so hard it needs a break soon.  Remember, breaks can be good. Our professionals suggest turning off the breaker, waiting a couple of minutes, and resetting the breaker. 

 4. Why is My Furnace Leaking?

When your furnace is working correctly, the only water sign should be periodic dripping noise. You should never see water on or around your indoor system, just hear it. If you do it is a sign that something is not functioning correctly. 

5. Why is My Furnace Making a Loud Clicking Noise?

Loud noise and clicks are annoying, but if this is going on, it can mean that something in your system is not working properly. Issues like this can be caused by worn bearing mortar, gas valve problems, or a loose inducer.d
