Regular Maintenance On Your Furnace Is The Key
Winter isn’t a great time to find out your gas furnace isn’t running correctly, but it does happen. Even regular maintenance doesn’t always find a problem until winter goes strong. However, the professionals at Burdick Heating are always on call to assist you with furnace repair or the new installation of a gas furnace.
Is It Time For A New Gas Furnace?
Have you seen a recent increase in your heating bill but have no real idea why, as you don’t think you are using the heating unit inside your home as often as you did? If the heating bill continually rises, you have a problem with your furnace. All sorts of issues can arise with your furnace and your home’s overall heating. For example, the ventilation system might leak somewhere, while a gas line connector might not be open. The furnace itself might simply be wearing down, or other problems can occur with your equipment. Regardless of the reason, it is essential for you to contact the professionals at Burdick Heating, as the professionals here can inspect your furnace and determine what is going on and what the best course of action is.
Gas furnaces have many components and safeguards so that when one portion doesn’t work right, the entire thing shuts down. These safeguards protect you and the furnace from issues that could cause carbon monoxide to build up or a fire in the home. However, a simple diagnosis can be challenging because this system is complicated.
One of the most common issues with furnaces is flame sensor failure. The flame sensor is a small piece of metal straight or bent into an L shape that sits in front of the flame assembly. Its purpose is to confirm that there is a flame while the gas valve is open. If the sensor does not detect a flame, the unit shuts down. Often the furnace will cycle between trying to ignite and then shutting down.
