As the cold season continues in Chickasaw, AL, you want to ensure your furnace is in good shape. However, your system may give you a headache by not starting, no matter what you do. Here are some of the reasons why your furnace may not be working and what you can do to correct them.
Your Thermostat Is Faulty
The job of your thermostat is to get the furnace to switch on and off. If this component is not working correctly, you should not expect your furnace to work properly either.
There are many reasons why your thermostat may be malfunctioning. It may have gathered dirt or dust on the internal components or needs to be replaced due to age.
It may also simply be located in a bad spot, in which appliances or sunlight are affecting its ability to accurately measure the temperature. If the thermostat thinks its 70 degrees because it’s too close to your oven or the sun is shining on it, it won’t turn the furnace on.
Your Furnace Air Filter Is Dirty
As your heating system runs, the air filter gathers dirt. Depending on how much dirt your heating system accumulates, your air filter may cause problems, including frozen coils, which will force your heating system to shut down.
The Ignitor Is Faulty
Your ignitor may become defective due to the normal wear and tear that breaks down machine parts over time. This may be the case if a professional has not been performing regular maintenance on your furnace.
This component may also become defective because of dust and environmental conditions such as moisture. When the ignitor is faulty for whatever reason, your furnace may fail to work completely.
