Top 5 Furnace and Heating Problems in Provo

February 03, 2015

We have discussed common air conditioning problems, now we’d like to outline problems related to heating that Provo homeowners often call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning about. Although there are quite possibly hundreds of explanations why your Provo home’s furnace or heating system may need to be repaired. Below is a list of the top five complications that may cause your furnace or heating equipment to break down:

1. Thermostat glitches causing no heat, fan spinning or comfort problems

2. Air passage problems from fan motors, belts and bearings, causing furnace overload or poor heating control

3. Old and clogged filters that cause airflow and comfort problems

4. Furnace or heating system pilot or ignition control problems, resulting in spotty or no heat

5. Inconsistent maintenance history may cause unexpected breakdowns, poor comfort or increased energy costs (in addition to emmense homeowner frustration!)


All of these common issues can be fixed by a professionally qualified, NATE-certified technician. Technicians from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can quickly diagnose the problem area and make the required repairs. Purchasing a
precision tune-up or maintenance plan could prevent almost all heating problems that result in no heat or low comfort levels. With a proper tune-up, all the components are checked and serviced so they operate correctly and at maximum efficiency during the heating season. Important items like Carbon Monoxide checks, plenty of combustion air, equipment clearances, and equipment safety are also key elements to the tune-up process. Remember – safety first! Never forget that furnaces of any age may pose safety hazards from combustion or gases, this is particularly the case if a NATE-certified technician has not maintained the equipment on a scheduled basis.
