A broken furnace is exhausting to put up with. There are several reasons this might happen, but one of the most likely is a problem with the burners or related systems.
Newer furnaces don’t require pilot lights to keep the furnace ignited. Instead, they utilize electronic ignition. If this ignition is damaged, the burners can’t function like they should.
When your gas furnace is functioning properly, here’s how it should run:
If something fails during this sequence, your furnace will shut down for safety reasons. Or it might deactivate a few minutes into heating because it’s getting too hot.
Some of these problems can be resolved on their own, but others are best handled by professional assistance. When you are looking for the fastest furnace repair in the U.S., call our heating Experts at . We repair all brands and our service is backed by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for a year.*
Here are several of the top reasons why your furnace isn’t staying lit and what to do to fix it.
Your furnace’s flame sensor is a safety component that notifies your furnace when gas is ignited. If the sensor is dirty or damaged, it might work intermittently or not at all. Even if the sensor is working like it should, incorrect positioning leaves it unable to sense the flame to begin with. While you could attempt troubleshooting and cleaning this sensor on your own, trusting a professional like Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will make sure the problem is resolved promptly and correctly.
Your furnace utilizes built-in safety functions that shut it off if it gets dangerously hot. One of the most frequent causes is a clogged filter. We suggest reviewing your air filter each month. If you can’t see light through it, swap it out.
Your thermostat commands your furnace when it should heat your house. When it’s not working normally, your furnace will have trouble keeping your residence warm. This can be a battery or electrical malfunction, depending on what type of thermostat you have. We recommend referring to your owner’s manual or manufacturer’s website for relevant troubleshooting information. If you still can’t get yours working, get in touch with our Experts at . We’ll pinpoint the issue quickly and can replace your thermostat, if necessary.
Some of these issues, like a dirty flame sensor or an overheated furnace, are due to a lack of consistent furnace maintenance. It’s highly beneficial to have this service completed every year, because it could help prevent breakdowns, boost your furnace’s energy efficiency and can even make it survive longer.
