5 Reasons for Furnace Repair

When you need furnace repair, you need it fast. In Utah, going without heat isn’t possible, not in the dead of winter! It’s not realistic for your HVAC company to make you wait for a resolution, but many times that’s what happens, and it can be because the team isn’t experienced enough to correctly diagnose the problem and solve it.

Furnace Repair

Through our years of training and experience, we’ve found that most homeowners usually call us for furnace repair for the same reasons.

Pilot Light Problems

A broken pilot light or ignition means the furnace that worked yesterday doesn’t function at all today. This could be caused by drafts, an electrical issue or a malfunctioning gas line. Whatever the case, it’s better to have a professional inspect and fix this type of problem, as it can be dangerous for the inexperienced homeowner.

Malfunctioning Thermostat

Sometimes homeowners may think that their HVAC is broken when the problem is a malfunctioning thermostat. This can cause a furnace to turn on and off at the wrong times.

Air Filters Need to Be Replaced

Dirty air filters can lead dust to buildup within the system. Then the furnace has to work harder to propel air. This can wear down the parts or put so much stress on the system that it shuts off.

Sometimes the problem escalates to a serious mechanical issue, but in other cases putting in a clean air filter does the trick.

An Internal Mechanical Issue

Wear and tear on the internal belts, bearings and motor can lead to a breakdown. A furnace repair specialist can quickly find the cause and replace the part to get the system back online.

Your Furnace Is Past its Useful Life

While your furnace repair team will likely do everything they can to make your furnace work efficiently once again, in some cases the system is just too old for the repair to be cost-effective. When necessary, your HVAC team will show you why furnace replacement is your best option.
