Furnace Repair in Council Bluffs, Iowa

During the freezing months of winter, a furnace malfunction can be a very unpleasant experience. The best thing to do is bring in professional help as quickly as possible. In the strain of very cold weather, the chances of your furnace breaking down will increase (especially if it's not regularly maintained).

Our team can also diagnose any strange sounds your furnace may be making. Some sounds are very normal like brief banging or humming. But if your furnace is screeching, scraping or clicking repeatedly, we recommend having a technician take a look before damage occurs.

How to Know Furnace Repair is Necessary

If you believe that there may be a problem with your furnace, here are a few signs that it may be in need of repair:

  • The unit will not start up.
  • There are strange noises while the unit is running or starting.
  • Continuously running blower.
  • Main burner is unable to remain lit for more than three seconds.
  • Pilot light is out.
  • After the burners are lit, the blower still refuses to turn on.

If any of these descriptions sound familiar, contact Aire Serv and immediately get in contact with one of our technicians.

Common Furnace Issues

In our line of work, we've noticed several patterns of furnace failure over the years. Here are six of the most common causes:

  • No Power - Depending on the situation, this could be an easy fix. If the power switch is turned off or the breaker has been tripped, it can easily be turned back on. If it ends up being a more complicated problem, such as an issue with a transformer, thermostat, control board, or blower motor, it will need to be seen by a technician in order to pinpoint the problem and the possible solution.
  • Failing Motor - A failing motor can be easily identified by its loud squeaks and squeals. Immediate professional service will be needed in this case to avoid the motor completely breaking down.
  • No Ignition - A burner that is trying to ignite will give off loud clicking noises. Whether it be because of a faulty control board, a blocked flue, or improper limit control, a quick repair or replacement of parts should be able to get the burner running back on track.
  • Main Burner Problems - A burner that is refusing to stay lit can be due to a dirty flame sensor or clogged condensation drain. If it doesn't light at all, the gas supply might be cut off. Luckily, when it comes to furnace repair, our technicians should only need to make a few adjustments and clean the key components.
  • Issues with The Motor Or the Run Capacitor - Motor problems cause the burner to not turn on even after the burners ignite. A run capacitor, on the other hand, could lead to continued troubleshooting.
  • Clogged Air Filter - A clogged air filter is typically the primary cause of a blower motor running all the time. Clogged filters damage the limit switch, which senses the internal furnace temperature. Aire Serv technicians can pinpoint the problem and teach you how to replace the filter in the future.
