We have serviced thousands of air conditioners and furnaces, so we can quickly and accurately diagnose a faulty furnace. Below are some of the most common heating equipment malfunctions we encounter in Hamilton.
Furnaces and other home heating equipment also remove dust from the air. Over time, the filters in the heat exchanger can get dirty and clogged. Clogged filters can restrict air flow, causing excess strain on your HVAC system. A dirty furnace filter won’t capture debris either, so your home might get excessively dusty.
The heat exchanger is the main part of the heating system that actually warms the air. Temperatures in heat exchangers can fluctuate greatly, leading to cracks and dents. Cracked heat exchangers leak air and won’t be able to heat your home efficiently. If you have a cracked heat exchanger, your best option is to install a new system.
Another sign your system needs maintenance is if your furnace frequently turns on and off before completing each cycle. Frequent cycling uses more power and puts more of a strain on your heating system. An over cycling furnace may trip your breaker box and cause power outages.
One of the most obvious warning signs that you need furnace service is a lack of hot air. Most of the time, a lack of hot air is due to inadequate refrigerant or a broken blower motor. If your furnace won’t blow hot air, call a professional to inspect the vents and heat exchanger.
Normally, the pilot light for your furnace should glow a light blue colour. If the flame is yellow, it means there is not enough oxygen or heat to achieve full combustion. Incomplete combustion produces high quantities of carbon monoxide, which is a dangerous odourless gas. If you notice a yellow pilot light, call professional technicians to address the problem.
Loud noises are another sign that you need furnace service or repair. A small amount of noise during operation is normal, but loud grinding or clanking could indicate a larger problem. Components like the blower belt or vents become loose over time and start vibrating, causing further damage.
Aside from fixing the immediate problem, regular maintenance and furnace repair carry several benefits.
The main reason to get regular service and repair is to keep your furnace in the most energy-efficient condition. As your furnace wears down, it has to work harder to maintain the same performance. The result is your heating system draws more power, causing higher energy bills. Regular service and repairs keep your system efficient, lowering your monthly energy costs.
Regular maintenance and furnace repairs can also significantly extend your system’s lifespan. The typical HVAC furnace lasts about 15 years on average. Staying on top of maintenance can extend that lifespan by an additional five years. It will also prevent future breakdowns, so you’ll end up paying less for repairs over time.
Above all, regular HVAC maintenance will improve your furnace or heat pump performance. Your furnace will be able to provide more consistent warm air and will take less time to kick on and warm up. You’ll notice more consistent temperatures inside your house and more reliable temperature switching.
Furnace repair and maintenance can also improve your indoor air quality. When your furnace wears down, it burns gas inefficiently and doesn’t circulate air enough. Repairing your furnace improves and maximizes airflow, which helps keep your air debris-free.
No matter how well you maintain your furnace or heat pump, you’ll eventually need to replace it. When that time comes, the professional technicians at Shipton’s Heating & Cooling Ltd can help you find a new furnace that fits your needs and budget. We work with the most well-known brands with reliable energy-efficient furnaces for modern homes.
You should have a professional in Hamilton inspect your heating at least once every six months to a year. In the meantime, you can do several things to keep your furnace in good condition.
