Signs Your Furnace Needs Repair

Before furnaces completely break down, they often present signs that show they’re not working their best. If you notice any of the issues below, contact GAC services to schedule a free consultation.

  • Increased energy bills: If you notice your heating bills are higher than they should be, this could be a sign your furnace is having to work harder than normal to heat your home.
  • Unusual loud noises: If your furnace makes loud banging, clanking, or grating sounds when your furnace turns on and off, it could mean you have issues with your belt, motor, or fan.
  • Yellow or orange pilot light: A properly functioning furnace should have a light blue pilot light. If you notice that your pilot light is yellow or orange, it may indicate a fuel imbalance.
  • Furnace turns on and off sporadically: If your furnace turns on for a few minutes and then shuts off, you may have an underlying issue that needs to be addressed.
  • Not heating as expected: If your furnace seems to struggle to heat your home to the level set by your thermostat, it’s a sign that your furnace requires repair.
  • Your carbon monoxide detector goes off:: If your carbon monoxide detector goes off, your furnace may not be completely burning fuel. If this happens, contact the fire department immediately. Once your home is cleared for re-entry, contact us for furnace repair.

Furnace Igniter Repair

Furnace igniters are a relatively recent feature of gas furnaces. They serve the same purpose as the traditional pilot light but utilize electricity instead of a flame to ignite gas quickly and safely. Furnace igniter systems are a welcome upgrade over pilot lights, but they’re not immune to damage and are one of the most commonly replaced furnace components.

Keep an eye out for these common signs of furnace igniter issues:

  • If your furnace no longer turns on after a power outage or surge, there’s a good chance your igniter burned out.
  • If your furnace turns off suddenly and doesn’t kick back on, that could mean your igniter is worn out.
  • If your furnace turns off, reaching the set temperature, you might have a problem with your limit switch. A malfunctioning limit switch can prevent the igniter from turning on.
