Common Furnace Repairs
While furnace repairs can come in all shapes and sizes, there are certain repairs that are more common than others. Air Experts provides expert help to evaluate your furnace problem and repair it promptly, so you can have a working furnace again. If you are experiencing furnace issues, here are some of the common repairs we see in homes throughout Raleigh and Durham.
Pilot Light Repair
A pilot light not lighting is a common reason for furnaces to not heat up in the winter, and it can have a variety of causes. A dirty ignition sensor or ignitor can cause the light to not light up, and this is a fairly easy fix. If the pilot light will light but not remain lit, a faulty thermocouple, bad gas regulator, or improper airflow can all be a cause.
Often, pilot light problems aren’t with the pilot light, but rather with the thermocouple, which detects the flame and allows the gas to remain open. This thin copper rod near the plot light is easy to damage, but replacing it quickly fixes the problem. Our team can assist with this repair.
Furnace Gas Valve Replacement
The gas valve on your furnace regulates the gas flowing to the flame that keeps things warm. When the gas valve stops working, the furnace could stop blowing warm air or shut down completely. If the valve is broken or faulty, the valve must be replaced or the furnace won’t operate correctly.
Flame Sensor Replacement
A flame sensor conducts an electrical current that detects the flame in your heating system. If there is a flame, it sends the signal to ignite the gas to start the heating cycle. If your gas burners are lighting but go out quickly, if you have a dirty sensor, or if the porcelain area of the sensor is cracked or broken, then you need to replace it.
Furnace Blower Motor Replacement
Furnace blower motors can fail if they work too hard and overheat, or they can get moisture inside that causes them to fail when water drips onto the furnace. If your furnace blower motor has failed, your furnace will not blow at all, so you will get no airflow from the system. In this case, our team will need to replace it to get the furnace up and running again.
Heat Exchanger Repair and Replacement
If your furnace’s heat exchanger becomes cracked or otherwise damaged, you are at risk for carbon monoxide poisoning. In most cases, the heat exchanger will need to be replaced to protect your family. Our team will be able to evaluate whether replacement or repair is right for your needs, but this is a serious issue that needs to be addressed as quickly as possible.
