The 5 Most Common Heating Problems
1-800-Plumber +Air of Fairfield County

Nothing is more disheartening than coming home or waking up and finding that it's uncomfortably cold inside. Home heating systems can break down from time to time, and when it happens to you, you need to get your heating working again and fast.

Fortunately, heating systems have a few easily identifiable issues that come up regularly. This article will walk you through common furnace issues and possible solutions.

The Furnace or Heating System Doesn’t Ignite

If your furnace or heating system is not igniting, it is vital to approach it cautiously. The pilot burner is a small flame that plays a crucial role in lighting the gas from the burner to create warm air. If your heating system is not working, you should check to see if you see a flame at the pilot. In some cases, relighting the pilot may solve the problem. However, do not attempt to relight the pilot if you smell gas. Instead, contact a professional heating technician from 1-800-Plumber in Shelton.

Heater Does Not Blow Warm Air

If your furnace is not blowing warm air, it could be an issue with the pilot burner or a blocked filter. Make sure to set your thermostat to "heat" and that the temperature is low enough to activate the heating system. If the problem persists, you may need to call a heating technician.

The Blower is not Functional

If you do not hear air blowing through the vents when your furnace is on, the blower may have a problem. To troubleshoot this issue, check the breaker to ensure that the furnace has power, adjust the thermostat temperature, and make sure that the thermostat fan is in the "on" position. If these steps do not resolve the issue, you may need to repair the blower motor.

Furnace Cycles on and off

If your furnace is cycling on and off repeatedly, it could be due to a clogged filter. Replace the filter and adjust the thermostat setting to ensure the temperature is not too high. If the furnace continues to cycle off and on, contact a professional heating technician.

Temperature Is Inconsistent

If you notice that the temperature in your home is inconsistent, check the vents to ensure they are not closed or blocked. Properly adjusted vents will allow the furnace to circulate air effectively throughout your home.
