Common Heater Issues: Cold Air and Inconsistent Heating

The last thing any homeowner wants is to turn up the thermostat and not have hot air blowing through their vents. If you suspect dirty filters may be the cause, be sure to change to clean filters. When filters get dirty the restrict airflow and prevent the hot air produced by the heater from entering the vent system. It's important that filters are changed every 90 days, or every 3 months to ensure warm airflow is not restricted.

While the most common cause of this is due to dirty filters, there could be a variety of reasons why your furnace is blowing cold air. It may be that the furnace is starting to lose its heating power, so the rooms that are most distant to the ventilation system are receiving less warmth than other rooms. It’s best to leave it to the professionals to figure this out.

Is Your Furnace Making a Squealing Noise?

A furnace never runs completely silent, but there are a couple noises that a furnace shouldn't make if it's running properly. Squealing noises coming from a furnace are typically a sign there is a problem within the heating system. A high pitched squealing noise is commonly caused by problems within the blower. A furnace's blower is powered by a motor and the squeal can occur when a belt or bearing has worn down and needs replaced. These parts wear down from old age or overheating from a build up of dirt or a faulty capacitor.

Common Signs and Symptoms of Furnace Problems

  • Increased energy bills: If you’ve noticed that your heating bill is increasing, even when your usage is staying the same, the problem could be that your furnace isn’t working properly. As internal parts in your furnace get older and wear out, your gas and electric bill may go up. Having your furnace serviced by a professional can help bring your energy bills back down to where they should be.

  • Your furnace struggles to maintain a consistent temperature: Are some of the rooms in your home too hot or too cold? This can be because your furnace can no longer distribute heat properly throughout your house, or that your thermostat is malfunctioning. Your heating system relies on the thermostat to instruct it on how much heat to produce, so if your thermostat is broken, it could be a serious issue.

  • Water is pooling around your furnace: There are two things your furnace can potentially leak: water and gas. A water leak may be less dangerous than gas, but both should be addressed as quickly as possible if you want your house to stay warm. It’s important to take time to examine the area around your furnace. If you notice water pooling around your furnace, it’s important to call a professional right away.

  • You’ve neglected furnace maintenance: If it’s been a few years since a professional looked at your furnace, it could be time for a tune-up and possibly some repairs. This is a vital step that doesn’t take a lot of time – a skilled technician can examine your furnace and see if there’s something wrong with it in less than an hour!
