How often does a furnace need maintenance?

So how often should your furnace require maintenance? On all new furnace installations, the manufacturers require yearly maintenance to ensure the system is running properly and that there are no issues with the system. And to keep the warranty of the new system intact.

We at 1-800-plumber +Air of Indianapolis recommended the same. Yearly maintenance can catch a problem before it arises, from checking the heating elements, to changing the air filter. Annual maintenance, including a thorough examination and cleaning of the parts that commonly malfunction, like the air filter, the fan, the pilot light, and the heat exchanger, can usually prevent problems.

What are the most common issues with a furnace?

No one wants to deal with an issue with the furnace, the weather is getting colder, and the temperature is slowly dropping in your house, we at 1-800-Plumber +Air of Indianapolis have compiled a list of some of the most common issues when it comes to your furnace. You can always Contact Us now for immediate assistance

  • The thermostat does not work. One of the most common issues when it comes to the furnace is a malfunctioning thermostat.

  • Flickering or weak pilot light. If your pilot light changes at all, you should call your local and trusted furnace technician. This could mean there is excessive carbon monoxide in your furnace and can turn into a dangerous situation and should be fixed immediately.

  • Dirty filters. The air filter should be changed once a month to keep your furnace running properly. A dirty air filter can lead to reduced airflow in your heater causing your heater not to run properly.

  • A cracked heater exchanger. The heater exchange separates the warming flame from the air, ensuring that your furnace runs safely, which can be a costly fix. Unfortunately over time the heat exchanger can crack if the air filter doesn't get changed. If the furnace goes out, call a licensed furnace technician to diagnose your furnace.

  • Blower belt. The blower belt is part of the motor that helps keep the fan running. Over time these will sometimes start to fray or even break. This is usually noticed by a high pitched squealing sound from the furnace as it runs. Getting the belt replaced will help improve the performance of your heater fan.

  • Over-cycling. If you notice that your heater is continually cycling on, even if it recently just turned off, this can be a sign that your limit switch is malfunctioning. You may notice your furnace to be continually blowing, even when it wouldn't be. This again will have to be diagnosed by a professional HVAC technician.

  • The furnace isn't blowing. A few different issues could cause this. The primary issue is to ensure that the blower isn't clogged, to do this, make sure the blower area is free from any debris that may be clogging the area. Next would be to see if there is a flashing red light on your blower, if you see the red flashing light, the next step would be to call a HVAC technician.

  • Ball Bearings. Over time, your furnaces' ball bearings can wear out, and they will require replacement. If you hear a scraping noise coming from your heater, turn it off, and call your local and trusted technicians.

  • Noises coming from your heater. If you are hearing a pinging, popping, or even a rattling noise coming from your heater, these noises could be caused by quite a few different issues. From a simple fix to tightening a loose panel, or to your ductwork. If you are hearing a noise and not sure where it is coming from, Contact Us now for help.

This was THE most painless repair experience! We had a leak in a pipe behind our water heater, spewing water out into space, ugh. Joe and his apprentice, Dan, were here in about an hour or so. They were both so very friendly from the moment they showed up at the front door! After they determined the problem, we discussed the needed repair, and then they began to replace the pipe(s) behind the water heater. This was pretty much an all-day job and I can honestly say it was no problem having them in my home. They were not only professional and courteous employees; they were two very kind individuals, who were also comfortable and friendly around my crazy dogs! I have had nothing but the finest experiences with this company and cannot recommend them highly enough! They are the best!
