  • Non-operating thermostat

A malfunctioning thermostat is one of the most prevalent furnace issues. If your fan is always running, it’s a solid indicator thermostat isn’t operating correctly. Set the fan to auto and see whether it runs continuously at all temperature levels to determine if this is the case.

  • Filters are dirty and clogged

Filters that are filthy or clogged can restrict the amount of air your furnace receives, lowering its efficiency. It’s also possible that your limit switch will damage as a result. Replace your filters at least once a quarter to maintain top performance.

  • Flickering pilot lights

Your furnace’s pilot light is critical to its effective operation. If it’s flickering or turning yellow, it might be a sign that there’s too much carbon monoxide in your gas furnace. 

  • Heat exchanger cracked

Unfortunately, this is an expensive problem. Your heat exchanger keeps your furnace functioning safely by separating the hot flame from the air. In most cases, this necessitates the replacement of the heat exchanger.

 A high-pitched screeching sound from your furnace while it’s operating is a common symptom. Our heating replacement in Bellaire, TX, will help your fan run more efficiently and effectively.
