How do you know your furnace needs to be repaired?
At Blair Mechanical, we can identify common warning signs even if your furnace is still providing heat. If you observe any of the following indicators, it may indicate a problem with your heating system:
Insufficient Heat Production Despite Furnace Being On
Is your home furnace running but not generating adequate heat? This issue may arise due to a clogged or dirty air filter, a primary cause of furnace malfunctions.
Drastic Temperature Fluctuations or Complete Lack of Heating in Your Home
Your gas furnace might be experiencing a malfunction or failure in the thermostat. A faulty thermostat can lead to problems with the fan, pilot light, power, or gas, disrupting your home’s comfort.
Cracking of Home Furnace Systems during Seasonal Temperature Changes
Over time, temperature variations can cause cracks to develop in the heat exchanger of your gas furnace, creating a potentially hazardous situation as carbon monoxide may seep into your home. Contact our team today if you hear cracking in your home furnace system.
Pilot Light or Electric Ignition Issues
If your furnace fails to turn on altogether, this is most likely an issue with the pilot light or ignition. For older furnace systems that rely on a pilot light frequently extinguishing, this may appear as a minor issue; however, it can result in significant energy wastage and an increased gas bill for your home. As the temperature drops, a flickering pilot light puts additional strain on your furnace, causing unnecessary wear and tear and a subsequent rise in expenses.
Regardless of the problem, our furnace repair technicians will assess the necessary repairs before initiating any work. This ensures that you are informed about the most suitable solution for your home furnace system.

Frequently Asked Questions:
How do I keep my furnace from running too much?
To promote the well-being of your furnace and save on energy costs, consider lowering your thermostat when you’re away from home for an extended period of time. However, if your absence is brief, avoid adjusting the thermostat, as it requires your furnace to work harder to restore the desired temperature. It is advisable to make minor temperature adjustments rather than drastic changes to maintain a stable environment for your furnace.
How do I know when my furnace needs a tune up?
At Blair Mechanical, our expert technicians recommend scheduling professional preventative maintenance at least once a year. This proactive approach ensures your furnace remains in top condition, minimizing the risk of costly repairs or replacements down the line.
What’s causing my ductwork to pop when the furnace starts or stops?
If you hear popping sounds coming from your ductwork when your furnace turns on or off, it may indicate an inadequate duct design. Insufficient duct design occurs when the airflow exceeds the capacity of your ductwork, potentially resulting in various ventilation and air quality problems. These issues can include increased energy consumption, premature system failure, inconsistent heating and cooling, mold growth in the ducts, a malfunctioning A/C compressor, and noisy furnace operation. If you experience popping noises, we recommend contacting a professional team to restore your systems performance.
How do I know when my furnace needs professional repair?
If your furnace is struggling to maintain the desired temperature or experiencing inadequate heating or cooling, it’s time to seek assistance from a professional HVAC technician. Other indicators include unusual noises emanating from your furnace, peculiar odors from your vents, or the need to frequently restart the unit. Furthermore, regular maintenance is crucial to ensure optimal performance of your furnace, and it is recommended to have it professionally serviced at least once a year by an experienced technician.
