Lack of Maintenance
Your heating system requires routine maintenance, just like any other piece of equipment in your house. You risk having a faulty or inadequately working heater if you don't plan inspections or clean the air filter, air ducts, and burners.
Air Filters That Get Clogged
Your furnace will struggle to circulate air if your filters are unclean. The kind of air filter you use could be the difference between the air quality in your home and the air quality you need. Whether or not you have pets, how many people live in your home, and the amount of pollution in the area outside and around your home are a few factors that can cause clogged air filters.
Daily Use Wear & Tear
Overuse damages heaters frequently, especially during the colder months. If your heater is older and you use it frequently, heater or furnace failure might not be avoidable. Particularly with more recent heating systems, routine maintenance can help you avoid these problems.
Having a Faulty Thermostat
When your thermostat is faulty, it can result in a malfunctioning fan, which can affect the temperature in your home. You will need to contact a professional at BEAM HVAC to have your thermostat replaced if it breaks.
Ignition Control or Pilot Light Malfunction
The pilot light in a gas heater enables the furnace to produce heat. The ignition control performs this function in various heating systems. You can lose heat if either burns out.
Not Having (or Lack) of Heat
Your heater may have problems with the thermostat, gas, or power if you are not getting any heat. Or, if you are having a low heat output, this can result from a clogged filter. Your heater can be too small for the space it is trying to heat if you do not have a blocked filter yet your room is still too cold.
Too Much Cycling
A heater that frequently turns on and off could have an incorrect thermostat setting. If adjusting the thermostat doesn't help, your heater can have a blocked filter or inefficient airflow.
Different noises are produced by heaters as they operate, but if you hear unusual rattles or squeaks you might have a mechanical issue. These noises may also indicate blocked burners and diminished airflow.
Continuous Running from Your Blower
When the blower continues to run, it is a sign that you have a broken or faulty limit switch.
