What Are the Signs of a Broken Furnace?

Furnace issues can be challenging to spot if you’re not familiar with the equipment. However, knowing what to look for is key to catching furnace problems early and avoiding more severe damage.

Here are some of the signs that you may need furnace repair:

  • Loud noises coming from your furnace
  • Unusual odors coming from the vents
  • Pilot or ignition problems
  • The thermostat is not working properly
  • No heat coming from the vents
  • Irregular cycles or short-cycling

If you notice any of these signs, McAllister is here to help. We can identify the issue and get your furnace back up and running in no time.

Top Reasons for Furnace Malfunctions

Furnaces can malfunction for a variety of reasons. Often, poor maintenance is the culprit—missing out on regular service visits can cause major issues over time. Sign up for one of our preventative maintenance plans for the peace of mind you deserve.

Other possible causes of furnace breakdowns include:

Thermostat Problems

A malfunctioning thermostat can cause your furnace to run longer than needed, resulting in decreased efficiency and higher energy bills. A faulty thermostat may also prevent your furnace from turning on at all.

Airflow Problems

Blocked or clogged vents can prevent air from flowing throughout your home and cause your furnace to overheat. This can lead to a total heating system shutdown, requiring emergency repair.

Dirty Air Filters

You should change your furnace’s air filters regularly to ensure proper airflow. Clogged air filters can cause your furnace to overheat and shut down prematurely.

Faulty Pilot Lights or Ignition Problems

If the pilot light keeps going out or the ignition system is not working, your furnace can’t start. That can lead to major issues if left unchecked.

Worn or Broken Parts

Over time, the parts in your furnace can wear down or break completely. If left unresolved, this issue can lead to decreased efficiency, higher energy bills, and a breakdown.

No matter what the issue may be, McAllister has the experience and knowledge to get your furnace working again. We know that a broken furnace can be stressful, so we strive to provide speedy and trustworthy customer service.

Most Frequently Asked Questions

What is the SEER rating?

The SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) is how the efficiency of your heating and cooling equipment is measured. The SEER is the amount of cooling your system will deliver per dollar spent on electricity, as compared to other systems. For example, a 3-ton unit may have a SEER efficiency rating of 13, 14, or 15. The higher the SEER the more efficient the system will be. The SEER rating of any given unit can range anywhere from 13 to 21.

Each split system cooling unit has a nominal SEER rating. This rating can be increased with the upgrade of the same series indoor unit. The SEER rating of a system is derived based on the combination of equipment installed in the home. The outdoor equipment (heat pump or air conditioner), as well as the indoor equipment (evaporator coil and furnace, or air handler), play a vital role in the total rating.

Your heating and cooling systems work incredibly hard to perform their functions for your home everyday. The constant stopping, starting and continual operation can wear down any machine if the proper care and maintenance is delayed. However, by performing regular maintenance, you can maximize the lifecycle of your heating or cooling unit and guard against many common equipment failures. Preventive maintenance inspections performed on a regular basis can uncover leaks, rust, rot, soot, frayed wires and corroded electrical contacts that the naked eye may not notice. You should have maintenance done on your system regularly to ensure maximum efficiency and allow prevent possible problems that may occur in the near future.

To keep your equipment running efficiently and maximize the useful life of your system all equipment needs to have an annual tune-up. At least once a year heat pumps and air conditioners require a professional tune-up. Inspections on boiler and furnace systems should include ductwork, pipes, dampers, valves, the chimney, registers, radiators, pumps, blowers, fuel lines, the gas meter, oil tank and every part of the actual furnace and boiler. Meanwhile, heat pump and air conditioning unit inspections should also include inspections of the fan, compressor, indoor coils, outdoor coils, line kits and refrigerant lines.

Since they are electronic, programmable thermostats are more accurate and efficient than thermostats that contain mercury. With programmable thermostats you can control the temperature in your home at different times of day without ever touching your thermostat. Because everything is automatic, you will never forget to change the setting on your own. A WiFi enabled thermostat allows you to monitor and adjust your home’s heating and cooling system remotely, helping you reduce your heating and cooling costs.

Standard filters work to keep your system and its ductwork clean, but they don’t really improve indoor air quality. To do that you need a media filter. The media filter rests between the main return duct and the blower cabinet and will improve dust and particle removal by seven times that of a standard filter. However, upgrading to a pleated media filter will remove everything from insecticide dust to airborne viruses from the filtered air. Always choose a filter that matches your blower’s capacity. For optimum efficiency and filtration, McAllister… The Service Co. recommends that you replace your disposable filters at least once a month. If you have washable filters, they should be cleaned once a month.
