Dirty Filters: Perhaps the most common furnace issue. A clogged or dirty filter can result in your furnace needing to work harder. Make sure you change your furnace regularly.
Normal Wear and Tear: As your furnace ages, it will become less efficient and need to work harder to heat your home. In these cases, we recommend speaking to an HVAC pro and get their advice.
Faulty Thermostat: Sometimes it isn’t your furnace at all, but instead your thermostat that is malfunctioning. Perhaps your thermostat is not signaling correctly to your furnace. We recommend checking out your thermostat and reviewing your owner’s manual
Noisy Furnace: You may be hearing rambling, rattling, and squeaking coming from your furnace. This unfortunately could indicate that your furnace has a mechanical issue. We recommend speaking with an HVAC specialist.
