It’s important to ensure your furnace is working as it should be, especially as we move towards the coldest months of the year. It’s never fun to have to deal with furnace problems during the winter. Here are 3 common problems we see that cause the need for furnace repairs in Andover: Furnace Repair Andover MN
Naturally, a home that’s lived in will have dust and debris floating through the air. As much as you clean, it continues to reappear. If you have dirty ductwork, this makes the problem so much worse and perpetually pushes debris around your home. This can cause poor indoor air quality and contribute to undesirable health impacts (hello, allergies). Moreover, ductwork that has accumulated a significant amount of debris and dust contributes to poor energy efficiency. You also run the risk of clogging your ductwork and causing an HVAC system breakdown. When dust clogs your ductwork, the air cannot properly circulate through your ventilation system and it causes your HVAC system to work harder just to heat your home. Getting ductwork cleaning services is a great way to promote better indoor air quality, increase energy efficiency, and minimize the need for furnace repairs.
Sometimes, your furnace just isn’t operating as it should. If your furnace isn’t heating your home like it used to, you may need to change your air filter, or there could be something more going on. One of your HVAC system components may be experiencing a system error that is hindering its successful operation. In this case, an HVAC contractor can diagnose and usually properly repair the problem. Furnace repairs due to a lack of maintenance are very common; many problems could be avoided with an annual furnace tune-up that would catch minor issues before they turn into a problem that impacts your whole home. If your furnace isn’t heating your home at all, this could be a sign of one or more major issues, and you should contact your local HVAC company promptly.
Natural Wear & Tear
After a while, your HVAC system will experience natural wear and tear. The average lifespan of a furnace is between 12-17 years, but we commonly see furnaces last much longer than that if they’ve been well taken care of. Getting an annual furnace tune-up is a great way to keep your furnace in optimal working condition and prevent many issues that wouldn’t be caught otherwise. However, without preventative HVAC maintenance, we see HVAC systems consistently underperform in terms of energy efficiency and functionality, and the lifespan of those furnaces often falls under the average lifespan of a typical furnace. Taking care of your furnace is important to catch preventable damage from impacting your system. Without regular maintenance, you will need more furnace repairs and need a furnace replacement much faster than you would otherwise.
