Are Furnace Issues Preventable?

Yes, you can absolutely help prevent some of these issues. Replacing your air filters, cleaning your air ducts, and scheduling annual furnace tune-ups are some things that can help.

Replacing Air Filters

Take for instance dirty filters. You should replace your air filters every 90 days. Air filters are easy to purchase and should be easy to replace. Look at the numbers on your existing filter's frame (i.e. 16x25x1) and find matching ones at your local hardware store.

Cleaning Air Ducts

Furnace problems caused by dirty air ducts can also be avoidable by regularly cleaning your air ducts. It's recommended that you have your air ducts cleaned every 3 to 5 years.

The frequency ultimately depends on a few things, like:

  • Pets that shed hair
  • Residents with allergies or asthma
  • Water damage is done to your home
  • Whether or not residents smoke

If you need your air ducts cleaned, just let us know! We offer air duct cleaning services.

Can I Fix My Own Furnace?

No one wants to waste money on a repair they could’ve handled on their own, there are some problems that simply need a DIY fix, such as:

  • Thermostat won’t turn on the furnace: Both new and old thermostats can cause heating problems if they’re difficult to use. Sometimes you just need to look at the owner’s manual or replace a dead battery.

  • The furnace blows cold air: You may just need to replace your air filters. If there are layers of dust on them, try vacuuming them first.

  • The furnace stopped working: This could be the result of a blown circuit. Try to reset your circuit breaker.

When basic troubleshooting doesn’t work, it may be best to have a professional take a look.

Why Does My Furnace Smell Like Burning?

Turning on your heater for the first time in a while? What you’re smelling is probably dust. Dust that has been building on your system throughout the summer will burn off the first couple of times your heat turns on. The smell should go back to normal soon. If it doesn’t, you may have a different problem on your hands.

If you notice an electrical burning smell, turn the unit off right away. This can be dangerous if left unattended. Most of the time, your system will automatically turn off if it begins to overheat, but this doesn’t always happen.

Scheduling Annual Furnace Tune-ups

Another great way to help prevent major issues is to schedule annual furnace tune-ups. We recommend scheduling yours sometime in early fall. Doing so will give us time to repair any issues and help ensure your furnace is ready for the cold winters.
