For All of Your Furnace Repairs
Furnaces are a popular option in Manchester, Nashua and neighboring communities. Furnaces operate by heating air. A fan blows the warm air through ducts that extend from the furnace to vents that release the heat into designated rooms and areas. Consequently, many moving parts are working in sync to efficiently transport that warm air to where it needs to go. Proactive Comfort’s heating team can keep your unit in top-notch condition with regular preventative maintenance. You can even handle some basic furnace maintenance yourself, such as changing the air filters once a month and checking the furnace’s thermostat to see if it needs new batteries. Still, there will be times when furnace repairs crop up, and who needs a broken furnace when the temperature dips below freezing and beyond!
The Big and Small of Furnace Repairs
We know furnace repairs are inevitable. Some of the most common problems that occur with broken furnaces include the following:
- Unit won’t turn on.
- Furnace blower won’t shut off.
- Burner won’t stay lit.
- Not enough heat or none at all is coming from the vents.
One reason for your broken furnace could be a bad starting mechanism—a pilot light in an older model or an electrical switch in a newer unit. Another problem could be the ball bearings or belt in the blower must be replaced. Maybe, the heat exchanger—a coil of heated tubes that warm the air before it is pushed into the duct—is cracked. Replacing a heat exchanger is one of the more expensive furnace repairs but is still less expensive than a total furnace replacement.
