Top 5 Furnace and Heating Problems in the Niagara Region

February 03, 2015

We have discussed common air conditioning problems, now we’d like to review common furnace and heating issues the Niagara Region homeowners often call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning about. Although there are theoretically hundreds of reasons why your the Niagara Region 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 glitches resulting in no heat, fan spinning or comfort problems

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

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

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

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


Every one of these common issues can be addressed by a professionally qualified, NATE-certified technician. Technicians from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can quickly diagnose the problem area and make the needed repairs. Purchasing a
precision tune-up or maintenance plan could advert almost all heating problems that leave you with no heat or low comfort levels. When you get a tune-up, all the components are checked and serviced so they run correctly and at top efficiency during the heating season. Critical items like Carbon Monoxide checks, plenty of combustion air, equipment clearances, and equipment safety are also primary elements to the tune-up process. Remember – safety first! Never forget that furnaces of any age may pose safety hazards from combustion or gases, particularly if a NATE-certified technician has not maintained the equipment on a scheduled basis.
