Do you have a furnace-related question? This is one component of the house that most homeowners do not know much about. If you suspect a problem, you should know how to react because it can become a huge safety hazard. Here are some common questions homeowners ask us about furnaces.
Why is my furnace not working?
Your home’s furnace may not be working for a variety of reasons. First, take a look at the thermostat. Is it set to heat? Are the batteries charged? After you inspect the thermostat, you will also want to inspect the breaker box. It is possible that a fuse has blown or the breaker has been tripped.
Why does my furnace smell?
Furnaces sometimes will give off a nasty odor. If this is the case in your home, you are going to want to call in a professional and have it serviced. It may just need a tune-up because of all the dirt and dust that has accumulated in the system. Routine inspection and maintenance is always a good idea when it comes to furnaces.
Why is my furnace blowing cold air?
So your furnace is blowing cold air? This is not an uncommon problem. Your furnace may be overheated caused by a dirty air filter. You should try and switch out the air filter and see if that fixes your problem.
Why is my furnace making a buzzing noise?
More than likely, your furnace is making a strange buzzing noise because your blower or fan is not functioning properly. This could be attributed to a variety of things. For starters, you will want to check to make sure that your furnace is getting power at the switch and breaker. If you realize that you do, you will want to check the fan. You may want to consult a professional if this makes you feel uneasy. If you eventually determine the fan is operating, you probably have some sort of issue with your circuit board.
