Common Types of Furnace Problems

If your furnace is older or outdated — if it’s been in use for more than 10 years — there are certain types of problems you might encounter when it’s on the decline. 

Below are 6 of the more common types of problems concerning an older home heating unit:

  • Lack of Heat

    Once Ohio’s frigid weather starts setting in, it’s essential to make sure your home heating equipment is working properly and providing sufficient heat to keep your whole home warm throughout the winter. If your furnace stops producing heat or if it begins blowing only cool air, there are several possible culprits:

    • Verifying that the furnace has power
    • Making sure all heat registers are open
    • Checking settings on thermostat
  • Pilot Light Is Out

    With older gas furnaces, the standing pilot light can go out if there’s a strong draft or if the equipment gets dirty. Additionally, the thermocouple could have gone bad, causing the gas supply to shut off. The pilot light going out is a fairly common reason for a gas furnace to fail to produce heat. Fortunately, in most cases relighting the pilot light is fairly straightforward. If the thermocouple is faulty, replacement is easy, fast, and affordable.

  • Blower Runs Continuously

    If your heating unit’s blower is constantly running, It could be the fan limit control switch needing replaced or it might need to be reset. With that said, however, it could also be the thermostat “FAN” setting, which would need to be switched over to its AUTO setting, which will enable the fan to only run when the system is heating or cooling.

  • Thermostat Is Faulty

    After ruling out other common culprits with the furnace system itself, like the air filter and such, check your thermostat. Problems with an HVAC system’s thermostat can result in wild temperature swings, a furnace that produces no heat, or the unit cycling on and off too often. First make sure your thermostat has power and that there is no dust or debris in its components. If that doesn’t help, give us a call.

  • Noisy Furnace

    Noisey heating equipment usually indicates a problem developing that can turn into an expensive repair if not addressed early on. It could sound like a high-pitched squealing, a loud banging or just a low-pitched humming noise that’s distinct from the furnace’s normal hum. Often, it’ll save you money in the long run if you call a professional to have a look. It could be solved by replacing the filter, if air blockage is causing the noise, and oiling the blower motor.

  • Furnace Cycles On and Off Frequently

    You can reduce energy costs and prevent damage to your expensive furnace by addressing issues of “short cycling.” This is important because in very cold weather, this constant turning off and on might be normal and necessary to keep your home at a comfortable temperature. However, it could also be a sign of a bigger underlying problem with your furnace. Possible causes include a dirty air filter, or a faulty thermostat, or a blocked exhaust vent.

Troubleshooting a Furnace Not Heating

If your home heating system isn’t working as it should, or not working at all, we at Blacklick Heating & Cooling present the following Furnace Troubleshooting Tips:

Start by making sure the thermostat is working properly:

  1. Set the temperature a few degrees higher than the current room temperature.
  2. Check the device's power source and batteries to ensure the thermostat has power.
  3. Make sure the thermostat is in heat mode.

The furnace may not be heating because the motor has been overloaded, requiring reset.

  • Use the reset button, located on the side or front of the furnace.

If the furnace doesn’t have power, it will not turn on, preventing heating.

  1. Check the furnace’s power source at the breaker or fuse box.
  2. Change fuses or reset breakers if needed.
  3. Check the on/off switch near the furnace or air handler to make sure it is set to on.

If the furnace does not have fuel, it can’t produce the heat you need.

  • If you have a propane or oil furnace, make sure you have fuel in the tank available for heating
  • Make sure the gas supply valve to the furnace is on.
