If a furnace is the primary appliance you use to heat your home, it’s extremely important that you keep it in the best shape possible.

Common Furnace Problems
There are hundreds of things that could go wrong with your furnace, but a few problems are much more common than others. Some of the most common include:
- Pilot or ignition control problems.
If your pilot light is going out frequently, it can result in having no heat, or you may only have heat intermittently.
- Dirty or clogged filters.
If your filter isn’t regularly cleaned or changed, your furnace will need to work harder to distribute the heat throughout your home. This will result in less heat, plus you’ll see a drop in your energy efficiency.
- Air flow problems.
Whether they’re from fan motors, belts, or bearing, air flow problems will often result in your furnace overheating or poor heating control.
- Thermostat malfunctions
If your thermostat isn’t working properly, you could have problems controlling the heating in your home, or you may end up with no heat at all.
- Lack of maintenance.
If your furnace isn’t regularly maintained, inspected, and tuned up, you’ll see a drop in its overall performance. You can expect to pay more for your St. Louis home’s energy costs each month, have a less comfortable home, and need more complicated and expensive repairs.
The best way to save money on repairs and avoid the frustration having problems with your furnace is to keep it regularly maintained. Our professional heating contractors recommend that you have your furnace tuned up at least once a year, preferably before the heating season begins. Furnace tune-ups will help you find and necessary repairs before they cause more (and more serious) problems, and they’ll make sure that your furnace is able to run as efficiently as possible year-round.
