Furnaces have a limited lifespan and will break down after a few years due to wear and tear or poor maintenance. It’s important to inspect your furnace regularly, but even then, you’d have to get it repaired at some point if you’ve been using it for a long time.

Common Furnace Problems

Furnaces are prone to several problems which should not be neglected, however minor they are. At the first sign of a furnace issue, contact Aquarius Home Services. Here are some common furnace problems to look out for.

Inadequate maintenance

After frequent use, your furnace could start acting up, especially if it doesn’t get regular maintenance. Experts suggest scheduling furnace inspections and maintenance at least once a year, if not every six months. If you fail to do the bare minimum, your furnace will likely experience several mechanical issues. You’d then be forced to pay for repairs or replacement, which could prove to be more expensive than simple maintenance. Aquarius Home Services can provide furnace repair and maintenance services for Baxter, MN residents and their neighbors in Brainerd, MN too.

Wear and tear

Your furnace could also suffer issues due to wear and tear. Overheating, heat control, and airflow problems are quite common in furnaces over time. However, this doesn’t mean that you’d have to replace the furnace. With timely repairs, you could get a few more years out of the furnace before replacing it. A furnace expert could inspect the system and determine whether repairs would be enough. Call us for an inspection today.

Dirty filters

The filters of your furnace can get clogged after extensive use. Clogged filters can cause all sorts of problems, one of which is reduced airflow. If that happens, your furnace would have to work harder to keep you warm, which can increase your energy bills if you don’t take timely action.

A clogged filter could also damage the limit switch. You can replace a dirty filter yourself, but if it causes any damage to the system, you would have to call a professional.

Inadequate heating

If your furnace is not heating as it used to, then there could be a problem with the thermostat setting, gas, power supply, or pilot light. Before you call in the experts, make sure that the thermostat settings have not been tampered with.

Adjust the thermostat and see if the furnace is heating properly. You can also try replacing the battery of the thermostat and see if it was the battery that was the problem. If the issue persists, then there could be a mechanical glitch that only professionals can fix.

Noisy furnace

All furnaces produce some noise, but it’s easy to differentiate between the default sound of the unit and one that suggests that something is wrong. If your furnace produces squeaking, rattling, or rumbling noises, there could be a mechanical issue that needs to be addressed. Usually, these sounds are signs of a clogged burner and reduced airflow. In any case, it’s best if you let professionals inspect the unit and repair it.
