Here in the Greater New York area the weather is starting to cool down. Many people have been looking forward to this cooler weather for several months now. Fall in New York is such a beautiful time of year! As the weather continues to cool down you will eventually need to turn on your furnace or boiler to keep your home warm. When this happens NY NJ AC Connection can come out and help you get it running properly again. As our technicians come out and make repairs there are some common repairs that we find ourselves making on your furnaces. Today we are going to talk about some of them so that you know what some of the issues you are having could be.
Dirty or Clogged Air Filter
One of the most frequent problems that we see is dirty or clogged filters. When your filters are dirty or completely clogged your unit will not be able to run as efficiently. When your furnace has to work harder to keep your home warm the odds of your furnace breaking down increase. This is a simple thing that you can stay on top of on your own.
Furnace Turns On & Off Frequently
Another issue that we see regularly is that your furnace keeps cycling between on and off modes rapidly. This is a sign that something is not quite right with your furnace. This could be caused by a dirty air filter, malfunctioning thermostat, a fan motor, or more.
When we get called out to take a look at a furnace we check your furnace and your thermostat. Many times the issue that you are having is actually not with your furnace at all but your thermostat is not working properly. If your thermostat is not telling your furnace what temperature to keep your home at your home will not be a comfortable temperature. Frequently our customers think that their furnace is not working when it is actually just their thermostat.
Furnace Keeps Shutting Off & Needs to Be Reset
If your thermostat is not working properly one thing that might be happening is that your furnace refuses to work and simply keeps resetting itself. This can result in a trip in the power source. When there is an interruption of gas power to the furnace it can lead to a breakdown in your unit. The most frequent problems that this causes is the gas pipe valve or the flame sensor.
Cracked Heat Exchanger
One of the parts on your furnace that can be expensive to repair is the heat exchanger. If your furnace is not running properly or it is not maintained properly your heat exchanger could crack. The good news is that this costly repair can be prevented by having NY NJ AC Connection come out and perform a routine maintenance call on your furnace. We recommend that you do this each fall before the weather gets too cold.
