A furnace is a deceptively complicated piece of equipment. While you might think there are only a few major things that can break down in your home’s heating systems, there are actually many heating system components that fail on a regular basis, for a variety of reasons:
- Cracked heat exchangers – overheating your furnace can easily crack a heat exchanger, subjecting your home to carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, and nitrous oxide leaks
- Faulty ignition – a faulty ignition or pilot light means your furnace won’t stay on, or won’t turn on again after it shuts down after normal operation
- Frequent cycling – electrical issues, bad thermostat settings, and even flogged air filters can make your furnace constantly turn on and off, shortening the equipment life and impeding its operation
- Worn ball bearings – worn out bearings can cause grinding or scraping noises, and can seriously jeopardize your ability to run your furnace safely.
- Dirty burners – clogged or damaged burners won’t release enough natural gas for your furnace to operate, and can cause excessive noise when your unit turns on
But that’s just a fraction of the things that can go wrong with your furnace.
