Gas Furnace Igniter Repairs in Raleigh, NC

Igniters are still considered somewhat new technology when it comes to gas furnaces. They essentially replace old pilot systems, instead offering an electrically powered and simple system that handles the ignition of gas.

Their use in modern systems has overall been a huge advantage, reducing fuel costs and adding safety by removing pilot systems — but they’re not perfect.

Stuck in the cold and having trouble with your furnace igniter? The certified HVAC professionals at Air Experts have the solution. We’ve been bringing Raleigh, NC, homeowners the best in fast and effective heating repairs for decades.

What Causes a Gas Furnace Igniters To Fail?

Igniters are small parts, just one tiny component within your system. You wouldn’t think too many things could cause this small component to fail, thus causing your whole furnace to malfunction, but they can.

A variety of things could cause your furnace’s igniter to malfunction or fail. At Air Experts, we’ve seen (and can repair!) it all.

  • Electrical complications: If your home experiences a power surge, you could lose power to many high-powered appliances. In these situations, small parts of those appliances (like your gas furnace igniter) are at particularly high risk, since the appliances aren’t shut off properly when the power goes out. If you’ve had a surge recently and your igniter isn’t working, it likely burnt out from not being shut down correctly.
  • Limit switch failure: This isn’t an issue with the igniter but with another system in your furnace. The limit switch ensures your furnace doesn’t get hot to the point of being dangerous, and the switch will inhibit your igniter to prevent it from operating when your furnace overheats. When this happens, the igniter will often stop functioning, even after the furnace is no longer in danger of overheating.
  • Age: In general, an igniter can be expected to last a good few years, but most of the time, it won’t last quite as long as the gas furnace itself. It could be that the problem is just an old, worn-out igniter.
