Common Furnace Problems — Part II

As the days get colder and the holidays approach, you’ll probably be watching the weather to see when you need to turn on your furnace. We looked at two furnace problems you may experience in a previous post, so be sure to catch up on that information if you haven’t yet read it. In today’s post, we’ll continue to look at some of the most common furnace problems we’ve seen in homes throughout Colorado.

Pure Air Solutions is proud to be Colorado’s Top Rated Local® HVAC company. We can help you with anything from basic furnace maintenance to extensive furnace repairs, so get in touch with us if you need an HVAC company in Denver!

Circuit Breaker

There’s almost nothing more concerning than attempting to fire up your furnace for the first time since last season, only to discover that it won’t turn on at all. You might be wondering if you’ll have to invest in expensive furnace repairs, or perhaps even a brand new furnace installation. Sometimes a tripped circuit breaker will cause your furnace to turn off, and all you need to do is turn the switch back on. If your furnace still isn’t working, then call us to schedule a furnace maintenance appointment.

Carbon Monoxide Leaks

It doesn’t matter what time of day it is — there’s almost nothing scarier than hearing your carbon monoxide detector go off. If your carbon monoxide detector’s alarm bells are ringing shortly after you turn on your furnace, then a cracked heat exchanger may be to blame. Older furnaces often develop cracks over time, allowing carbon monoxide to escape and permeate throughout your home. While we always check the health of your furnace’s heat exchanger during furnace maintenance appointments, it’s possible that it was damaged or developed cracks during the summer when the unit wasn’t in use. This is just one more reason why you should invest in a furnace maintenance appointment before you turn on your heat.

High Heating Bills

If your first heating bill of the season is much more expensive than it was last year, then the problem could be that you have developed a leak somewhere in your home. Perhaps a window in one of your bedrooms is allowing cold air to fill your home, or maybe one of your doors has developed a serious crack. Check to see if you can feel a draft in any of your rooms, and if you can’t, then give our HVAC company a call to schedule furnace maintenance. One of our friendly HVAC technicians will come to your home and look for any problems that could be compromising your furnace’s efficiency. Should you need furnace repairs, we’ll offer you a solution that works with your schedule and doesn’t exceed your budget.
