Why Did Your Furnace Break Down?

There are several reasons why furnaces go out of commission. Here are the three most common cases why they break down and what you can do about it:

Dirty or clogged furnace filter

A dirty or clogged furnace filter restricts proper air flow, making your unit work harder than ever to circulate warm air through your home, and struggle with operation that causes discomfort. To avoid this, always remember to replace your filters regularly to ensure your furnace’s optimal running condition.

Furnace ignition/pilot malfunction

Find out if the power source of your furnace functions properly by observing your unit’s ignition process. If it’s not running as it’s supposed to, you can relight the pilot safely by following the manufacturer’s instructions. If your unit has an electric ignition system, it’s best to call a furnace repair specialist to properly evaluate and repair it.

Overlooked furnace components

Your furnace has many mechanical and electrical elements vital to the efficient operation of the unit. When you fail to regularly inspect and maintain these diverse parts, it may cause unnecessary trouble with your furnace, generating performance problems like intermittent heating and deficient air flow. Ward off these headaches with routine component check-ups.

Furnace maintenance issues can be harder to identify on your own because of numerous parts potentially causing the breakdown. Let expert furnace repair technicians examine your heating system to detect and remedy any potential problems that may arise in your unit.

Winter has been particularly harsh this year, and just recently a massive storm hit Canada’s Atlantic regions. CTVNews.ca reports that:

A massive and powerful storm was causing havoc across eastern Canada on Sunday, causing a multi-vehicle pileup that shut down a bridge linking two Maritime provinces.

Environment Canada says the major winter storm blanketed New Brunswick with snow overnight Saturday and into Sunday and brought a mix of rain, freezing rain, ice pellets and snow to Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.

“We saw quite significant amounts of snow in eastern New Brunswick, anywhere from 41 centimetres in Bathurst to 31 centimetres in Moncton,” said meteorologist Jeremy March in Halifax on Sunday.
