How Can Customers Determine If Their Furnace Requires Repairs?

A complete lack of heating and a furnace that fails to turn on give a clear message that repairs need to be performed by a qualified technician. However, not all issues that can impact a furnace are quite so obvious. In many repair situations, a furnace can continue to run when malfunctions are present in the system – but doing so puts your furnace at risk for greater damage and more extensive repairs that come at a higher cost.

You don’t want to damage your furnace by operating it when it needs repairs, but you don’t want to waste money on unnecessary service call fees, as a free estimate is not part of repair service. In order to get your furnace the professional care it needs, when a technician is needed, Columbus, OH homeowners need to be able to recognize the system symptoms that indicate something is not right.

Below, find some of the clear warning signs furnaces often produce when malfunctions or defective parts are present within the system. When you see these signs, you’ll know it’s time to arrange furnace repair services.

Loud and Unusual System Noise

Typical sounds associated with a furnace that is performing as it should are a click from the thermostat and a click from the burners at the start of a heating cycle. A consistent hum is produced as the blower runs and heat circulates through ductwork to living areas.

When a furnace produces any new sounds outside of what is typical as heating cycles start, run, or end, it’s a sign something is not right within the system. These are some common noises homeowners may hear and what furnace problems cause them – so if you hear one of these noises, call us for furnace repair services.

  • Grinding during a heating cycle, which typically comes from a worn-out bearing in the blower. The blower motor bearings are lubricated as part of furnace maintenance services each year to prevent this from happening, so if you’ve skipped your furnace’s regular maintenance tune up this year, it may be necessary for a technician to remove the bad bearing from the blow and install a replacement.
  • Clicking that repeats when the furnace first starts. This type of sound can be produced by a faulty flame sensor, ignitor, or gas valve.
  • A loud bang shortly after the furnace turns on. This noise is actually produced by a small explosion inside the furnace, caused by an issue called delayed ignition. Dirt, dust, and debris buildup on the burners or flame sensor, or faulty ignition components can fail to instruct the furnace to fire up when it should, which allows gas to build in the system. Once the pilot light or ignitors are able to fire up the system, the excess gas is combusted and produces this loud noise.
  • Squealing can happen when an issue occurs in the blower. If the blower motor and blower fan are linked by a belt, squealing results when that belt slips out of place or is damaged.

Short Heating Cycles

Typical heating cycles from a furnace last around 10 to 15 minutes. When cycles end in half that time or less and the furnace runs more frequent heating cycles as a result, this is an issue known as short cycling. Short cycling places the furnace under a lot of stress, increasing wear, generating energy waste, and causing damage to the system

Short cycling has many different causes in a furnace, which include:

  • Clogged air filters which limit air flow
  • Limit switch triggered early by the furnace overheating
  • Faulty temperature readings or miscommunications from a bad thermostat
  • A furnace that is too large for the house
