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 explanations why your Raleigh home’s furnace or heating system may need to be repaired. Below is a list of 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. Furnace or heating system pilot or ignition control problems, resulting in spotty or no heat

5. Lack of maintenance may cause unanticipated breakdowns, poor comfort or higher energy costs (plus a lot of homeowner frustration!)


Each of these common issues can be addressed by a professionally qualified, NATE-certified technician. Technicians from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can quickly detect the problem area and make the necessary repairs. Having a
precision tune-up or maintenance plan could protect you from almost 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, adequate 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 regularly.
