Decoding Furnace Issues: Your Go-To Guide for Common Problems

When it comes to maintaining a comfortable and safe home, your heating system plays a critical role. But what happens when your trusted furnace begins to falter or fails entirely? As the experts in the field, we at Goettl are here to provide you with a comprehensive troubleshooting guide for common furnace issues. Our aim? To help you understand, diagnose, and possibly even resolve some basic furnace problems before seeking professional help. 

No Heat 

One of the most prevalent issues homeowners face is a furnace that isn’t producing heat. This could be due to a simple reason, such as the thermostat not being set correctly or an issue with the circuit breaker. Ensure your thermostat is set to “heat” and the temperature setting is higher than the current room temperature. If the furnace still hasn’t started, check your electrical panel to see if the circuit breaker has tripped. 

It Keeps Turning Off 

There are many ways to protect and improve your indoor air quality. In addition to regular dusting, not burning unnecessary fuel, and keeping pets bathed, our IAQ experts recommend the following four key customized air quality solutions that will lead to a healthy indoor environment. If your furnace keeps turning off before your home is adequately heated, it might be due to a dirty air filter restricting airflow. Regular replacement of your air filter can prevent this common issue. If your filter is clean and the problem persists, it may be time to call in the experts, as this could indicate an oversized furnace or a malfunctioning thermostat. 

Unusual Noises 

While most furnaces make some noise when they’re running, loud or unusual noises could indicate a mechanical problem, like a blower belt issue or a problem with the ignition. If you hear strange noises, it’s best to call a professional to inspect your system.

Rising Energy Bills 

If your energy bills are climbing, yet your usage hasn’t changed, your furnace may be losing efficiency. This could be due to wear and tear over time or a need for a tune-up. Regular maintenance can help keep your furnace running efficiently and your energy bills in check. 

Uneven Heating 

Are some rooms in your home warmer than others? Uneven heating could be due to blocked vents, poor insulation, or issues with your ductwork. Our licensed and insured technicians can help identify and resolve these problems. 

When in Doubt, Call the Pros 

Remember, while this guide provides basic troubleshooting tips, it’s always best to consult with a professional HVAC technician when experiencing issues with your furnace. At Goettl, we offer expert heating services to ensure your comfort throughout the cooler months.

Roger came out on Thanksgiving Day to fix our unit. Turns out, our home builder completely shorted us on the amount of blown-in attic insulation (which you think a home inspector would have caught) and also our unit is too small for our house which is 4 years old. Roger took the time to explain all of this to us in detail and got our unit up and running. Thank you Roger!
