Top 5 Furnace and Heating Problems in Columbus

February 03, 2015

We have discussed common air conditioning problems, now we’d like to share common furnace and heating issues Columbus homeowners often call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning about. Although there are potentially hundreds of reasons why your Columbus home’s furnace or heating system may need to be repaired. Listed below are the top five complications that may cause your furnace or heating equipment to break down:

1. Thermostat breaks resulting in no heat, fan spinning or comfort problems

2. Airflow problems from fan motors, belts and bearings, causing furnace excessive heat or poor heating control

3. Old and clogged filters which develops airflow and comfort problems

4. Problem with the furnace ignition or pilot light, resulting in sporadic or no heat

5. Lack of maintenance may cause unforeseen breakdowns, poor comfort or escalated energy costs (in addition to emmense homeowner frustration!)


Each of these common issues can be fixed by a professionally qualified, NATE-certified technician. Technicians from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can quickly diagnose the problem area and make the necessary repairs. Getting a
precision tune-up or maintenance plan could prevent almost all heating problems that result in no heat or low comfort levels. During a tune-up, all the components are checked and serviced so they run correctly and at maximum efficiency during the heating season. Important items like Carbon Monoxide checks, plenty of combustion air, equipment clearances, and equipment safety are also top elements to the tune-up process. Most importantly – safety first! Never forget that furnaces of any age have the potential to pose safety hazards from combustion or gases, particularly if a NATE-certified technician has not maintained the equipment on a regular basis.
