If you hear any type of rattling, banging, or thumping from your heating unit you should immediately reach out to a professional. Even if you hear a soft clicking sound (not regular), you should seek professional assistance, immediately.

If your heater isn't turning on, it can mean a blown fuse. It might additionally imply you have an older heater where the pilot burner isn't working.

4. Furnace Turns on but No Heat

If your furnace turns on but no heat is coming out, you'll want to see if your thermostat is set to on. If it is, this could be causing the heat to not come out. Check your thermostat, and where it says fan on or auto, set it to auto.

First, they should offer you immediate results unless it's a long job. They should never install used parts into your furnace.

Beware of unmarked vehicles. If they've been around for a while, they'll have a professional van with their services listed.

Also, watch out for those who want to come to your home more than twice a year. While emergencies happen, if they routinely want to come over numerous times, you'll want to cancel their services.

7. Common Furnace Problems

There are common furnace problems you can explore.

Some of them are:

  • Not having it maintained
  • Clogged filters
  • Pilot light problems
  • Overrun heat pump
  • Lack of airflow

If you have an overrun heat pump, this means it's constantly running. They're best for areas that are normally less than 35 F.

If your fan motors aren't properly working, this can cause a lack of airflow. When it's not maintained, your furnace can overheat.

When you have a clogged filter, that means your furnace has to work harder for air circulation. Make sure you change the air filters every month to avoid this.

A modern heater will have one or two ignition systems. When there's a mechanical problem, it can cause no heat or a problem with the heat coming out of the vents.

A lack of maintenance can cause all of these problems and more. This can cause repairs that could have been avoided, the need for replacements, etc.

It's best to have your heating specialist come routinely to check and make sure everything is running smoothly.

Satisfied Customer

First plumber we called wanted $3500.00 to replace everything. Emanuel came out and suggested we change one part and less than $300.00 later we was up and running again. From Mark, to Taylor, and then on to Emanuel the whole experience was professional and I will be a customer for life. Hopefully not often though. Great working with you guys!.
