Waking up cold in the middle of the night is the worst. It’s one thing if all you need are some extra covers, it becomes a whole different issue if your furnace is working poorly or not working at all. A broken furnace can happen to anyone. Here are some of the most common problems that homeowners experience with their furnace.
Furnace Won’t Produce Any Heat
There can be any number of minor reasons why this could potentially occur. In fact, you might want to double-check that your thermostat is actually set to “heat”. If so, consider moving the dial up and down to see if a noticeable difference is felt. If there is absolutely no result, check to see if perhaps a circuit breaker or fuse was tripped or blown. If everything checks out, this is when you’ll need to get the professionals involved.
Furnace Isn’t Producing Enough Heat
A furnace that seems to struggle to actually produce any heat is a different matter altogether. In the case of a poor-performing furnace that doesn’t even heat your home adequately, take a close look at your air filter. Make sure that it is actually clean and in good condition, if not new. Usually a clogged filter will leave a furnace feeling like not enough hot air is circulating throughout the home. However, if you’ve recently changed your air filter then the problem could be more severe. Reaching out to a professional could be the best option for you.
A Cluttered And Obstructed Area
It is imperative that you keep the area surrounding your furnace clean and unobstructed. Otherwise, you could end up with some serious problems. In fact, this may seem like an obvious tip, but sometimes homeowners with busy lives forget to pay attention to areas of their homes like their basement (which is where most furnaces are located).
