We have discussed common air conditioning problems, now we’d like to review common furnace and heating issues West Chester homeowners often call Wesley Wood Service Experts about. Although there are potentially hundreds of causes why your West Chester home’s furnace or heating system may need to be repaired. Here are the top five problems that may cause your furnace or heating equipment to break down:

2. Airflow problems from fan motors, belts and bearings, causing furnace overload or poor heating control

3. Dirty or clogged filters resulting in airflow and comfort problems

4. Furnace or heating system pilot or ignition control problems, resulting in intermittent or no heat
