Common Furnace Problems — Part I

As Coloradans, we know how important it is to have a reliable and efficient furnace. A broken furnace is not only inconvenient, but it’s also miserable to endure. In today’s post, we’ll look at a few of the most common furnace problems you might experience as the weather gets cooler and we transition from fall to winter. If you need furnace maintenance or furnace repairs in Denver, or any of the nearby areas, then get in touch with Pure Air Solutions to schedule an appointment! We’ll gladly help you get your furnace running efficiently before the coldest days of winter are here.

Clogged Air Filter

Many homeowners call us because they’re worried that their furnace needs expensive repairs or inconvenient furnace maintenance. Sometimes our clients notice strange smells coming from their furnace, and other times they notice that their furnace isn’t working as efficiently as it once did. We’ll cover more potential reasons why these problems could be occurring in future posts, but both of these problems are often solved by simply changing the air filter.

Your furnace’s air filter is your first line of defense against dust, dirt, and other irritants that you don’t want in your home’s air. These particles are collected in the air filter, and over time, the filter can become so saturated that it interferes with the entire appliance’s ability to function properly. 

Your air filter should be changed every two or three months, depending on how often you use your furnace. You can tell if your filter needs to be changed by comparing the current filter to a brand new one. If the current filter is discolored and caked with dust, then it’s time to switch it out for a new one. If you’re not sure when to change your air filter, or if you would like assistance from a professional HVAC technician, then we invite you to get in touch with us at 720-408-5893. We can even provide you with additional furnace repairs or furnace maintenance while we’re at your home!

Temperature Swings

There’s nothing worse than waking up in the middle of the night because your room is too cold, or having to throw off the blankets because your furnace is emitting too much warm air. If you notice that your home is uncomfortably warm at times, and too cool at others, then the issue may be due to an improperly calibrated thermostat. Thermostats get bumped, or mistakenly set from time to time, and this can lead to noticeable swings in your home’s temperature. Give our Denver HVAC company a call if this fix doesn’t work, as the problem could be with the thermostat itself. We’ll gladly take a look at the problem and offer a solution as quickly as possible.
