Recognizing the Need for Professional Furnace Repair

While you may not think of your furnace very often when it’s working properly, chances are it won’t take you long to notice when it needs repairs. In addition to colder indoor temperatures, there are several other warning signs you should look for, which are key indicators your furnace may be on the fritz. Remember, the sooner you call for repairs, the better, as waiting too long can result in increasingly costly fixes, if not forcing you to replace your system completely.

Top Warning Signs Your Furnace Needs Immediate Attention

  • It is giving off a burning smell
  • It’s making strange rattling or banging noises
  • It turns off and on erratically
  • It doesn’t turn on at all
  • It’s not communicating with the thermostat
  • It runs for extended periods of time without properly heating your home

If you are experiencing any of these warning signs, your furnace may be suffering from a range of issues, including a faulty furnace connection, dusty air filters, electrical wiring problems, and more. If left unaddressed, these issues can cause your furnace to “short cycle,” in which your system shuts down, only to restart a short time later, leaving your house unevenly heated and increasing your energy bill.

Luckily, our skilled Portland heating technicians at A-TEMP are able to diagnose issues quickly, and offer comprehensive emergency furnace repair solutions which can improve your furnace’s performance and save you serious money. We also offer a 2 year parts and labor warranty on all repairs.

Common Furnace Issues in Portland Homes and How to Fix Them

While the specific furnace problems experienced in Portland, OR, can vary depending on factors like the type of heating system, age of the furnace, and maintenance history, there are several common furnace issues that homeowners in the Pacific Northwest, including Portland, may encounter. These include:

  • Dirty or Clogged Filters: One of the most common furnace problems is dirty or clogged air filters. Portland's relatively wet climate can lead to increased dust and debris in the air. When filters become clogged, airflow is restricted, leading to reduced efficiency and potential overheating of the furnace.
  • Ignition or Pilot Problems: Furnaces may experience issues with ignition, especially in older systems with pilot lights. If the pilot light goes out or the ignition system fails, the furnace won't produce heat.
  • Thermostat Problems: Faulty thermostats can lead to inaccurate temperature readings or difficulty in maintaining a consistent temperature. This can result in discomfort and inefficient heating.
  • Lack of Maintenance: Portland's damp climate can contribute to rust and corrosion on furnace components. Without regular maintenance, this can lead to various problems, including worn-out parts and reduced efficiency.
  • Blower Motor Issues: The blower motor is responsible for circulating warm air throughout the home. If it fails, you may experience uneven heating or a complete lack of airflow.
  • Clogged Condensate Drain: High-efficiency furnaces commonly have condensate drains that can become clogged. This can cause the furnace to shut down as a safety measure.
  • Short Cycling: Short cycling occurs when the furnace frequently turns on and off in quick succession. This can be caused by issues like a malfunctioning thermostat, clogged filters, or an oversized furnace.
  • Gas Supply Problems: In some cases, gas furnaces may experience problems with the gas supply, such as a gas valve issue or a gas line leak.
  • Strange Noises: Unusual noises like banging, rattling, or squealing can indicate various issues within the furnace, from loose components to damaged blower belts.
  • Old Age: Older furnaces are more prone to breakdowns and inefficiency. Many homeowners in Portland eventually need to replace their aging heating systems for improved reliability and energy efficiency.

It's important to note that regular furnace maintenance and professional inspections can help prevent many of these common problems. If you encounter any issues with your furnace, it's advisable to consult A-TEMP for our technicians to come out and diagnose and address the problem promptly, especially during the colder months.

Resolving Pilot Light Issues: Expert Furnace Repair in Portland

If your furnace’s pilot light keeps going out, a likely culprit is the thermocouple or flame sensor. The thermocouple acts as a safety measure for your furnace. It is responsible for turning the gas off when the flame, or pilot light, is extinguished, thus protecting your home. If the thermocouple is damaged, faulty, misaligned, or even dirty, your pilot light will keep going out. You can check the color of the pilot light flame to determine if the thermocouple is the issue. If the flame has changed from its usual blue to a yellow color you're in need of a professional service. As the pilot light is essential in keeping your home heated, we recommend consulting with a professional Portland furnace repair technician from our team as soon as you begin experiencing an issue.

Maximize Furnace Efficiency with Regular Maintenance

Our Portland furnace repair and maintenance technicians are experts at troubleshooting a wide variety of furnace problems. We can diagnose and repair electrical wiring problems, faulty connections, dirty air filters, short cycling, and many other problems. After we have inspected your furnace, we will explain the work that is needed to get it up and running again.
