One of the most important parts of your HVAC system is your furnace. A furnace is responsible for heating your space, and if your furnace isn’t working properly, then your HVAC system has to work harder to circulate heat throughout your home or business. If you suspect your furnace isn’t working correctly, it’s important to schedule a furnace repair service right away to avoid irreparable damage.

We’ve used Polar Bear LTD several times this year from routine maintenance to fixing a water line to our water tank and lastly an emergency service on Christmas Eve with our furnace going out.

There are multiple issues that could result in you needing a furnace repair service. It’s crucial to schedule regular maintenance in order to avoid furnace repairs and help keep your furnace running as efficiently as possible. If you suspect your furnace has one of the following issues, make sure to contact our knowledgeable team and we’ll create a comprehensive plan to quickly repair your furnace and get it back up and running properly.

Cracked Heat Exchanger

A heat exchanger is compiled of a network of heated tubes that heat up air before it travels into the designated area. Heat exchangers are one of the most important components of a furnace, and if it’s cracked, then your furnace is unable to function properly. A cracked heat exchanger is one of the more costly repairs, so make sure to schedule regular furnace maintenance to help avoid this issue.

Strange Furnace Noises

If you notice your furnace is making weird noises, then it’s time to have an HVAC professional investigate the issue. When your HVAC system works properly, you shouldn’t be able to hear any weird noises coming from the system. If your furnace is making high-pitched squealing noises, a loud thumping noise or any other abnormal noise, that’s your clue that something is in need of repair.

Thermostat Issues

One of the most common furnace problems is a malfunctioning thermostat. The thermostat has an integral role and tells the furnace how much heat needs to be produced in order to reach the desired temperature. If your furnace’s thermostat isn’t working properly, you risk not producing enough heat, or your furnace creating too much heat and overheating your space.

Clogged Filters

If you don’t regularly replace your air filters, they’ll become dirty and sometimes even clogged. If you have an air filter that’s dirty or is clogged and isn’t allowing air to easily pass through, that makes your furnace work harder. The harder your furnace works, the quicker it’ll begin to experience wear and tear, which could eventually result in you needing a completely new furnace.

Furnace Isn’t Producing Heat

The main job of any furnace is to create heat and circulate it throughout a space to reach a desired temperature. If your furnace isn’t creating heat, then there’s obviously an issue present within your HVAC system. If you reset your circuit breaker and your furnace still isn’t working properly, make sure to immediately schedule an appointment with HVAC professionals.

Faulty Flame Sensor

A flame sensor is an integral part of any furnace that helps furnaces operate safely and efficiently. Flame sensors work by determining if there’s a flame present. If no flame is detected, then the flame sensor will turn off the furnace. If you notice your flame sensor is cracked, corroded or is shutting off your furnace even if a flame is present, have your furnace inspected immediately.

Furnace Repair FAQ

One of the most common ways to know if your furnace is in need of a repair is if your utility bills are higher than normal, but you feel like your heating and cooling system hasn’t been working properly. For example, if during the winter your home felt extremely cold even though your heater was on, and your utility bill was higher than normal, you’re in need of a furnace repair service.
