Top Reasons for Furnace Breakdown

Furnace, HVAC | 0 comments

When it comes to HVAC difficulties, it can be easy to assume that your problem is complicated. However, we at Lebanon Heating & Cooling know from experience that most heating and cooling difficulties that our customers experience are a result of a lack of routine maintenance. There are two top reasons for furnace breakdowns, and both can usually be addressed without professional help! 

It Just Needs a Once Over  

If your furnace is malfunctioning, the first thing you can do is give it a once over. Problems like: 

  • Frequent cycling
  • Unusual noises

can typically be fixed by checking for loose screws or parts, and cleaning. If you’ve noticed your furnace is working harder than usual, then you should make sure the space around the indoor and outdoor units are tidy and free of boxes, leaves, snow, and bushes. Sometimes the problem can be with the settings on your thermostat as well, so consider adjusting the settings and watching for a few days to see if there is any improvement. 

Your Furnace’s Blower System Is Dirty 

If you’ve noticed that your furnace is:

  • Producing less hot air
  • Spreading dust around your home
  • Cycling more frequently

Then you should immediately check the condition of your furnace’s air filter. This is one of the most common causes of furnace problems, and your filter should always be replaced at least once a month. If this doesn’t solve the problem, then you can also vacuum your air vents and clean any dust around the furnace unit.
