Whenever there is a problem with your furnace, you hear strange noises, it doesn't blow heat or it is malfunctioning you probably need a Furnace Repair. You want to keep your furnace functional because there is nothing more frustrating other than needing a repair at an inconvenient time.

If you’re worried that you might need a repair, don't wait because furnaces usually fail on the coldest days of the year.  Prepare yourself. An older furnace between the ages of 10-15 years old that makes strange noises, smells funny or is malfunctioning is something to be concerned about.  Especially if that furnace has received little maintenance over the years.

Top 5 most common reasons for Furnace Repairs 

  1. Thermostat is broken 
  2. Have a broken blower motor
  3. Filters are clogged
  4. Pilot light won't light
  5. Doesn't blow heat

The thermostat is one of the most frequent problems for when it comes to the furnace. Although it is a separate unit the thermostat is still directly linked to the furnace and the core functioning of it.

A broken blower motor can also be a reason why you would want to call Neighborhood for a repair.  A broken blower motor can create strange noises and limit airflow preventing you from getting the most out of your furnace. If there is anything wrong with it like bad bearings, belts or full of debris the furnace will not distribute the right frequency of heat.

So many times a clogged filter is the problem behind a dysfunctional furnace. A filter helps to ensure that dust and other debris not enter into the blower motor or fan areas of the furnace. However, these problems do come up and replacing the filter can stop them, is one way how maintenance can prevent a furnace repair as well as cleaning your blower motor.

Don’t put off having a Furnace Repair

The longer that you leave a furnace broken, you run the risk of more damage. The more damage you have, the more a repair will cost.
