DIY Furnace Repair Tips and Check List.
Do you feel that your heater may need service? Remember to always check and make sure the thermostat is set to 'Heat' and that your air filters are clean. Dirty air filters can prevent a gas furnace from igniting and can over-heat electric air handlers and can lead to broken heater components and extra or even major repairs.
If you are noticing any heating issues or have any concerns with your heating system, feel free to contact our knowledgeable staff, some symptoms of a heating problem include:
- Poor heating in one or more areas.
- Unusual smells or odors such as burning electrical wires or natural gas.
- Tripping circuit breakers or blown fuses for your furnace.
- Strange noises coming from your furnace such as rumbling or grinding.
- The indoor fan/blower constantly runs and won't turn off.
- The system constantly restarts over and over when switched to 'Heat'.
- Carbon Monoxide Detectors or Smoke Alarms go off when running the heating system.
- The thermostat is set to 'Heat' but the heater never turns on.
Listening to the early warning signs described in the Heating Check List above will allow you to catch an early heating problem before it turns into a bigger one and can often be resolved with simple adjustments or minor repairs to your system. If you feel you are concerned that your system is experiencing any of these symptoms, feel free to call us, our technicians are available 24/7 and can often diagnose any issues you are having over the phone without ever having to come out. For more information on common furnace problems described above, see below:
Poor heating in one or more areas.
This could be due to several issues. The first place to start is at the thermostat and make sure the system is set to heat and that the system comes on and also that the air filters are clean and allowing air to easily pass through and into the system. With the system on and heating, check in the area that isn't getting warm and check if any warm air is coming from the supply vents in the ceiling which may need adjusting. If no air can be felt blowing from the supply vent then ductwork may have come loose or have been collapsed in the attic preventing warm air from ever reaching the vent. At this point we need to enter the attic and check if any ducts have come loose or if air leaks are found. If air leaks or collapsed ducts are found they should be repaired, reconnected and sealed. Some HVAC systems also have supply air dampers located inside the supply air plenum where all the duct runs for the system attach at a central location. Supply air dampers can come loose and accidentally close, preventing air from ever reaching the supply vents located in the living space, the dampers need to be examined and adjustments may need to be made to get the proper air flow delivered through the duct and into the living space.
Unusual smells or odors such as burning electrical wires or natural gas.
Unusual smells from the heating system could be coming from various sources, so it's important to first identify the odor. If the odor is of natural gas, then there is natural gas leak present somewhere in the house and the gas should be turned off until a professional can determine where the gas leak is coming from. If the gas leak is coming from a gas furnace, it is most likely due to a faulty gas valve or gas ignition component, in which case the component at fault will have to be repaired or replaced. If the odor at question is a burning smell, ask yourself when is the last time you have turned on the furnace. Furnaces that haven't run all year are covered in dust from the air conditioning system running, and this dust has to burn off the furnaces heat exchanger and will quickly dissipate. If this isn't the first time of the season for the furnace to be running and you still smell a burning smell, an electrical component has most likely failed or is beginning to fail. The furnace should be inspected with all electrical wires and all electrical components being tested and checked for proper operation.
Strange noises coming from your furnace such as rumbling or grinding.
Every furnace, be it electric or gas, has an indoor blower motor that moves the air throughout the home. When rumbling or grinding is heard coming from a furnace, it is most likely due to the rotating blower motor located in the furnace section of the system that is experiencing an issue. The system should immediately be turned off to prevent any further damage and the indoor blower motor and wheel should be inspected for any problems with rotation, vibration or debris. If debris is found it should be removed and the blower section should be cleaned. If belts are present on the motor and loose and causing the vibration, these belts should be replaced. If no belts are attached to the motor, then the motor mounts and bearings may have come loose and the motor may have fallen or is beginning to fall from its normal position, in which case the motor may need to be repaired. Finally, the motor should be checked while under electrical load for proper rotation and operation. If the motor is operating out of the manufacturers specifications, it should be replaced.
The indoor fan/blower constantly runs and won't turn off.
The first thing to do if the indoor fan won't shut off is check at the thermostat and make sure the system fan is set to turn on automatically and not set to 'on'. If the thermostat is set to auto, then an issue with the furnace is occurring. Since furnaces can be dangerous, furnace manufacturers have equipped their furnaces with components and circuit boards that allow furnaces to monitor their own performance in order to make sure the furnace is operating safely. When a furnace detects it is having an issue, or if the furnace has determined it may be getting too hot and causing a fire hazard, furnaces will often run the indoor blower fan as a means to cool themselves down, then eventually the furnace may try to re-enter it's heating sequence. Some furnaces have to be manually reset by turning the power off and on to the furnace, some have circuit boards or safety controls that have to manually be reset in a specific way defined by the manufacturer, others may automatically reset after a specific amount of time. In either case, the furnace is letting you know that it has experienced an issue and the furnace should be inspected to determine what the issue is and if there is any issue at all. All safety controls and electrical components should be tested and verified for proper operation in order to determine which component has triggered the furnace to enter a 'safe mode' state of operation. Upon discovery of the triggered safety component or upon discovery of a failed component, it should be determined why the component triggered or failed so it doesn't happen again.
The system constantly restarts over and over when switched to 'Heat'.
When a furnace keeps attempting to start over and over again, it is most likely because the furnace failed to correctly enter it's heating mode and has determined it's safe enough to try again and reattempt entry into heat mode. The gas should be inspected to see if gas is present at the furnace. The gas valve inside the furnace should also be inspected to see if the valve itself is opening and closing correctly and allowing gas to flow through the furnace. The ignition module should also be inspected to see if it is igniting the gas correctly. There may also be other issues with safety components, as discussed in the above symptoms with the blower motor constantly running. The furnace should be thoroughly inspected and all its components should be tested for proper operation and if everything checks OK, the furnace's brain, the circuit board may have very well short-circuited telling the furnace there is an issue when there really isn't. Circuit boards often short circuit if from power outages, lighting strikes, and electrical surges. In any case, the furnace should be inspected to determine why it keeps re-attempting to enter heat mode and the issue should be corrected.
Carbon Monoxide Detectors or Smoke Alarms go off when running the heating system.
Gas furnaces produce toxic gasses called combustion gasses when they are running and these combustion gasses contain a deadly gas called carbon monoxide which is odorless and invisible, which is why everyone with a gas furnace should install carbon monoxide detectors in their home. When the furnace is functioning correctly it vents these combustion gasses out of the home through a vent leading to the home's roof. If this vent pipe comes loose and falls apart, cracks or becomes clogged by birds nests or debris, most furnaces have a way of detecting this and will not turn on until the issue is corrected which won't trigger carbon monoxide detectors because the furnace won't run. Older furnaces may not have this capability so the vent pipe should be inspected for thoroughness, cracks and debris. If debris is found the pipe should be cleaned and properly reattached, if cracks are found the pipe should be replaced. Sometimes furnaces can crack internally and begin leaking their combustion gasses into the air they distribute into the home, setting off carbon monoxide detectors along with it. The furnace should be inspected and it's heat exchanger should be examined for any cracks, if cracks are found, the furnace should be replaced.
The thermostat is set to 'Heat' but the heater never turns on.
This symptom could also be caused by a number of issues. Some furnaces and thermostats have a 5-10 minute delay before initializing into a heat or cool mode. If this duration has been met and the furnace still isn't coming on, then ask yourself has anyone been in the attic recently. Perhaps getting out the christmas decorations or has the cable guy recently been in the attic? Most furnaces have a light switch that looks exactly like a light switch you would use to turn a light in your home on or off and these switches are often mistaken for doing just that and accidentially get shut off by homeowners or handy men when they are exiting the attic space so check and make sure this switch hasn't been turned off. High voltage electriciy should then be verified at the furnace, if no voltage is present then high voltage breakers and fuses should then be checked to see if they may be preventing electricity from reaching the furnace. If high voltage power is present, then low voltage power needs to be verified exiting the furnace and also at the thermostat. Since the thermostat initiates the furnace into heat mode, the thermostat should be tested and verified that it properly sends a signal (typically 24 volts) back and forth to the furnace to initiate a call for heat mode, if it isn't doing this, the thermostats wiring should be checked and tightened, if this doesn't solve the issue, the thermostat should be replaced. If no low voltage signal is found, the furnace needs to be examined again. The control section and circuit board of the furnace needs to be examined for any low voltage fuses and/or breaks in wiring. If no breaks or fuses are found, the furnace's high voltage to low voltage transformer is most likely bad, and should be replaced.
