Five Reasons Why Your Gas Furnace Isn’t Working
Staying warm during the winter in Colorado is no joke. From breaking out your snow clothes to making sure your windows are properly sealed, staying warm at home and while you’re out and about is highly important. One of the ways you can keep yourself and your family warm this winter is by making sure your gas furnace is up and running as efficiently as possible.
If your gas furnace isn’t working or isn’t working as well as it should be, there might be a few reasons why. Furnaces break down due to wear and tear throughout the year, but can cost you a lot of money in energy bills if you don’t get the problem fixed.
Here are five reasons why your gas furnace might not be working:
1. It hasn’t been maintained regularly
Furnaces should ideally be checked once or twice a year. This ensures that they are working properly, are efficient, and can help take care of any small problems before they turn into larger ones.
2 .General wear and tear
General wear and tear can take its toll on your gas furnace. This can reduce the energy efficiency of your furnace as well as its ability to heat your home well. Sometimes your gas furnace isn’t working because parts are starting to wear out, or its undergone a lot of strain in recent months.
3.Dirty vents and clogged air filters
Dirty vents and air filters contribute a lot to malfunctioning gas furnaces. If your air filters are dirty or clogged, it means your gas furnace is working harder to make up for it. This can increase your energy costs and make your gas furnace operate poorly.
4.Ignition or blower issues
If your gas furnace isn’t working, have a technician check your ignition and your furnace’s blower. Either of these could have issues that prevent your furnace from putting heat in your house
5.Broken parts leading to noise/inefficiency/lack of heat
If your gas furnace isn’t working, there might be broken parts cause it to break down. If your furnace is noisy, isn’t pumping out heat, or seems less efficient than it was in years past, be sure to schedule a maintenance appointment.
