3 Common Furnace Repairs

According to Energy.gov, most people in the U.S. use furnaces or boilers to heat their homes. And that means that many people have to fix their furnaces when they run into heating problems. With that said, let's take a look at three common furnace repairs. Keep these in mind the next time your furnace acts up!


1. Your pilot light is out

Some older gas-fuel furnaces still have pilot lights. If yours won't stay lit, you may have a problem with your thermocouple. Whether it's loose or faulty, you'll need to call a professional. The technicians of Rusk Heating & Cooling will work hard to perform any repairs that we can on a furnace that isn't operating correctly.

2. Your filter is clogged

Homeowners tend to forget about the filters in their furnaces. Your filter works to clean the air that goes into your furnace as well as the heated air that flows into your house. "A dirty, clogged filter limits the airflow, eventually causing heat and pressure to build up in the furnace," advises Bob Vila. Be sure to check your filter for built-up dirt and debris.

3. Your thermostat is malfunctioning

Your furnace's thermostat regulates how much heat is produced. A poorly-functioning thermostat can show itself in many ways:
  • No heat
  • No fan
  • Intermittent heat
All of these issues can make for a cold and uncomfortable winter.
