Top 5 Furnace and Heating Problems in Raleigh

February 03, 2015

We have discussed common air conditioning problems, now we’d like to review problems related to heating that Raleigh homeowners often call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning about. Although there are theoretically hundreds of causes why your Raleigh home’s furnace or heating system may need to be repaired. Here are the top five problems that may cause your furnace or heating equipment to break down:

1. Thermostat breaks producing no heat, fan spinning or comfort problems

2. Air circulation problems from fan motors, belts and bearings, causing furnace overheating or poor heating control

3. Old and clogged filters resulting in airflow and comfort problems

4. Pilot light or furnace ignition issues, resulting in spotty or no heat

5. Inconsistent maintenance history may cause unanticipated breakdowns, poor comfort or higher energy costs (not to mention homeowner frustration!)


Every one of these common issues can be resolved by a professionally qualified, NATE-certified technician. Technicians from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can quickly spot the problem area and make the necessary repairs. Having a
precision tune-up or maintenance plan could protect you from nearly all heating problems that leaves your home with no heat or low comfort levels. With a proper tune-up, all the components are checked and serviced so they operate correctly and at top efficiency during the heating season. Critical items like Carbon Monoxide checks, ample combustion air, equipment clearances, and equipment safety are also key elements to the tune-up process. Most importantly – safety first! Never forget that furnaces of any age can pose safety hazards from combustion or gases, especially if a NATE-certified technician has not maintained the equipment on a regular basis.
