Top 5 Furnace and Heating Problems in Livermore

February 03, 2015

We have discussed common air conditioning problems, now we’d like to review common furnace and heating issues Livermore homeowners often call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning about. Although there are potentially hundreds of causes why your Livermore home’s furnace or heating system may need to be repaired. Here are the top five complications that may cause your furnace or heating equipment to break down:

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

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

3. Flithy and clogged filters which develops 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 unforeseen breakdowns, poor comfort or escalated energy costs (in addition to emmense homeowner frustration!)


Each of these common issues can be addressed by a professionally qualified, NATE-certified technician. Technicians from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can quickly detect the problem area and make the required repairs. Purchasing a
precision tune-up or maintenance plan could protect you from practically all heating problems that leave you with no heat or low comfort levels. During a tune-up, all the components are checked and serviced so they run correctly and at peak 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. Most importantly – safety first! Never forget that furnaces of any age can pose safety hazards from combustion or gases, particularly if a NATE-certified technician has not maintained the equipment on a regular basis.
