How Old Is Your Furnace?

It’s important to know how old your furnace is, since that can determine what parts it may need. It will also let our HVAC technicians know what type of problems may be present, as well as what tools will be needed to make repairs. If your system is more than 15 years old, it may be more cost-effective to consider furnace installation, rather than spending more money on repairs. The heat exchanger is often what goes first, and the best way to keep things running smoothly is to schedule regular maintenance on your HVAC system.

Diagnose The Problem

When our technician arrives at your home, the first thing they’ll do is get to work on diagnosing the problem. If you’ve been hearing strange noises or you’ve noticed an odd smell coming from your furnace, then that can give us an indication on where to begin. The more information you can provide, the more precise the initial diagnosis can often be. It’s okay if all you know is that the furnace isn’t adequately heating your home – we’ll begin by looking for common problems with the blower motor, the ignitor, and other parts that can fail and negatively affect your heating system.

Repairing Your Existing System

As we mentioned above, repairing your existing system can be the best option when something goes wrong, rather than spending money on a new furnace. We always come equipped with the necessary tools and parts, and we have experience working on a number of different systems. We will work quickly and diligently to repair your heat, because we know how uncomfortable a house can get in the middle of December when the furnace isn’t working properly. A broken heating system can also pose a risk to your plumbing, and the last thing you want is a burst or frozen pipe.

Reliable Emergency Repair

When something goes wrong with your furnace, it isn’t usually during the middle of the day, or even when you’re home. Things usually break down or malfunction in the middle of the night, and the only way you know something is wrong is either because you hear a strange noise, or you notice that the warm air has disappeared from your bedroom. When this happens, it’s important to have a reliable furnace repair company that can get to your home quickly. With our 24/7 emergency repair, you can feel confident that your HVAC will be fixed quickly and that your home will be restored to a proper temperature before morning arrives.

Routine Furnace Maintenance

The best way to ensure that nothing goes wrong with your furnace in the middle of the night is to schedule routine maintenance with a trusted HVAC provider. Just like you do with your car or truck, regular tune-ups will keep your heating system running as it should, without noises, odors, and malfunctions at the most inopportune times. We can work with you on finding the best time to have your furnace checked, even if it’s only one or two times a year. Above all, we want you to feel at ease about your heating, and that it will work how you need it to once colder weather arrives.

Common Furnace Problems

At G&R, it’s our job to find what’s wrong with your furnace and get it fixed. While each system can present unique challenges, there are some common problems that can plague every furnace.

These are just five of the common problems that we encounter when working on furnaces in the Gilberts area. Obviously, there are many more, and we know how to handle them all. If you notice anything wrong with your furnace, then please don’t hesitate to call.

Dirty Or Clogged Filters

This is very common occurrence, as many homeowners have forgotten or neglected to change out the furnace filter. This is especially important before the winter heating season, since your furnace is going to be used most between November and March. Dirty or clogged filters can make your furnace work harder than it needs to, which can lead to a host of other problems.

Faulty Or Broken Heat Exchanger

As we mentioned above, the heat exchanger is the core piece of your furnace, and when it goes, it’s often time to replace the system. If the heat exchanger cracks or breaks, then your furnace’s efficiency can dwindle to almost nothing. The air that’s being pulled into the system isn’t being heated properly, which means that your house isn’t being heated properly either.

Bad Pilot Light

For gas furnaces, the pilot light is what ignites the fuel when the furnace turns on. Most older systems will have a pilot light, while newer models feature a piezoelectric spark to light the main burner. A pilot light that is faulty or that doesn’t stay lit can pose a serious risk to your home and your health, since the natural gas will keep flowing from the supply line. If this gas were to ignite or explode, it could be devastating to your home and your family. If you ever smell gas, leave your house immediately and call your local utility company.

Frayed Blower Belt

If you ever hear a high-pitch squealing noise from your furnace when it turns on, then chances are there’s something wrong with the blower belt. If the belt is frayed or loose, then the fan won’t turn as it should, and warm air won’t circulate as well throughout the house. The belt can be adjusted, but if it looks well past its prime, it’s best to replace it. This will make everything run smoothly once more, and it will also eliminate that annoying squealing sound.

Defective Thermostat

Sometimes, the problem doesn’t lie with the furnace itself, but with the thermostat on the wall. A defective thermostat can cause the furnace to cycle on and off too frequently, which can lead to other problems down the road. The battery in the thermostat could be dead, or there could be a problem with the wiring. Your furnace may think that it’s reached the desired temperature and therefore it shuts off, when it reality, it’s still five to 10 degrees colder in your house than you want.

These are just five of the common problems that we encounter when working on furnaces in the Gilberts area. Obviously, there are many more, and we know how to handle them all. If you notice anything wrong with your furnace, then please don’t hesitate to call.
