What are the signs that a furnace requires repair?
Even when your home furnace system is still providing heat, there are certain warning signs that Blair Mechanical knows to look out for. If you notice any of the following signs, it may indicate a heating system problem:
Insufficient Heat Output Despite Furnace Running
If your furnace unit is running but not generating enough heat, it could be due to a clogged or dirty air filter, which can lead to furnace breakdowns.
Inconsistent Temperatures or Complete Lack of Heating
If your home is experiencing drastic temperature fluctuations or no heating whatsoever, it may indicate a thermostat failure or malfunction. A faulty thermostat can disrupt the fan, pilot light, power, or gas, compromising the comfort of your home.
Potential Cracking of Furnace Heat Exchanger During Seasonal Temperature Changes
In British Columbia, home furnace systems are susceptible to heat exchanger cracking during shifts in temperature. This poses a significant risk, as cracks can allow carbon monoxide to leak into your home.
Issues with Pilot Light or Electronic Ignition
If your furnace won’t turn on, it could be due to problems with the pilot light or electronic ignition. In older furnaces with a continuously extinguishing pilot light, it may seem like a minor issue. However, this can lead to wasted money and increased gas bills. As the weather gets colder, a flickering pilot light causes the furnace to work harder, resulting in unnecessary wear and tear and higher expenses.

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.
What should I do if my furnace stops working?
In the event of a furnace malfunction, it is advisable to seek professional assistance.
