Mar 26, 2021 | HVAC

We at Westerville Air Conditioning & Heating have seen every problem out there when it comes to furnace malfunctions. We also know that sometimes it can be daunting for new homeowners with little HVAC experience to know how to address a problem with their furnace. That’s why we want to share with you the top two reasons for furnace breakdowns. When you learn more about your HVAC system, you can learn how to resolve simple problems and how to know when your furnace requires professional attention. 

Your Furnace Needs a Maintenance Check-Up

First and foremost, we suggest that you schedule a personal routine checkup for at least once a year. You can easily do this on your own, and it helps you be aware of any small problems before they grow into bigger ones. That being said, if you haven’t given your HVAC system any attention in a while, then it may be time for a once over. You can do this by checking for clutter around your indoor and outdoor units, replacing your furnace filter, and checking for loose screws or dust buildup. Doing this can eliminate any small issues you’ve noticed with your HVAC system.

Small Wear and Tear Problems 

If you’ve noticed that your air ducts are bent, scratched, or torn, then it’s time to call a professional. In addition, if you notice any leaks, strange noises, or any increasingly troublesome problems, then you should seek professional help. Wear and tear is common with any system, and it’s impossible to avoid the occasional leak or tear. What is most important is addressing the problem immediately.
