Furnace Maintenance & Repair

Furnace maintenance can help ensure your system will last as long as it should before it needs replacement. Keeping the parts clean and lubricated by a professional is an excellent way to protect one of the most expensive investments in your home. If you are having issues with your blower motor or belts, you should have a trained technician come and take care of the problem.

Furnace Repairs Should Only Be Addressed by a Professional

Besides changing a dirty filter, most furnace repairs and maintenance procedures should not be attempted by the average home owner. Working with gas, oil, sparks and wiring require someone who can diagnose a problem correctly.

When You Have Pilot Light Trouble

Having to troubleshoot a pilot light is a common experience for many furnace owners. Sometimes there is nothing wrong with the unit, but at other times a pilot light issue can be a serious problem. Occasionally, a pilot light will blow out from a gust of air. In these cases, simply relighting the flame solves the problem. However, if your pilot light has gone out more than once in a month, you may have a malfunctioning thermocouple. The thermocouple is designed to shut off the gas flow when it no longer senses heat from the pilot light flame. If your thermocouple is dirty or broken, your gas may be shutting off for no reason. Another issue to watch out for with the pilot light is the color of the flame. Make sure that your flame burns blue at all times. An orange or yellow flame could indicate that your furnace is releasing carbon monoxide, a potentially deadly situation. Keeping your intake valve cleaned is one way to keep the flame burning correctly. Lastly, if you are not seeing any flame at all, check to see if your gas shutoff valve is shut and open it.
