In order to keep your furnace working at top capacity, regular maintenance is vital. The good news is that the necessary maintenance is fairly simple. Also, if there are problems with how it is running, you might be able to fix them yourself.
Typically, if your heating or cooling system stops working properly, it is due to a glitch in one of these areas:
- Power loss – The most likely issue when a furnace stops working, is that there is no power being supplied to the unit. If it is a fuel-run system, the issue may be that the gas or oil is not igniting as it should.
- Thermostat malfunction – When the air conditioner or furnace will turn on, but will not cool or warm the air as it should, the problem could be the blower. Also, the thermostat could be the source, as it may make the system turn on and off.
- Dirt – When your system is not clean, fuel will end up being wasted, and efficiency will be compromised. Therefore, it is important to keep all the working parts of your furnace and/or air conditioner clean and lubricated.
Regular checkups and filter changes can go a long way in prolonging the life of your furnace and air conditioner. You can always try some troubleshooting at home, but if you cannot figure it out, it may be best to call a professional.
