5 Common Signs Your Furnace Needs Repair
If you notice that your furnace isn’t running as efficiently, it could be an early indicator of needing repair. If you’re starting to hear strange sounds coming from your furnace, it could be just a dirty air filter or something much more sinister. Below are the top 5 signs you should be on the lookout for to make sure you’re properly maintaining your heating system.
Common Furnace Problems
Dirty Furnace Filter
One of the most common problems we come across is a dirty furnace filter. If your furnace has a clogged air filter, it could increase noise and decrease airflow. It will also cause the system to have to work twice as hard and can shorten its lifespan.
Mechanical Wear & Tear
This type of wear and tear is perfectly normal when using your furnace on a consistent basis. You should be aware that sudden failure in one part can cause the entire unit to break down. Mechanical issues with various parts can lead to all kinds of problems for your furnace.
Lack of Maintenance
Another common but preventable problem. Homeowners always neglect furnace maintenance. When you don’t regularly schedule proper maintenance, your furnace can be prone to frequent breakdowns, and we know it’s normally on the coldest day of the year.
Pilot control Issues
Your pilot and ignition controls are particularly important to keeping your home or business warm. Without them there’s no heat. If they malfunction, then keeping warm will be impossible.
At times, your thermostat might not work, and this can be a source of discomfort for you. The furnace won’t produce any heat or even turn on causing the house to become extremely hot during winter days.

What to Check When Your Furnace isn't Working Correctly?
When the temperature drops in the Okanagan Valley, you want to rely on your furnace to keep you warm, cozy, and comfortable. The last thing you want on a cold night is for your furnace to stop working. Luckily there are a few things you can check for a quick fix.
Check the following if your furnace stops producing heat:
A dirty or clogged air filter can block the airflow through your air handler and trap the heat internally. This will leave your home much colder than it should be. Replacing dirty furnace filters can be a quick way of getting them working properly again.
Make sure your gas valve is actually on. Someone during maintenance or summer thinking it’s not needed could have turned it off. This will prevent gas from feeding your furnace. Simply turning it back on could be the fix you need for a warm home.
Make sure you double-check your thermostat. We get many calls for something as simple as a thermostat not set to ‘HEAT” if it’s not working correctly, then your furnace won’t know when to switch on and off and keep a constant temperature in your home.

Can an Older Furnace Make you Sick?
The average furnace lasts for approximately 15 to 20 years. Older units that start breaking down more regularly are not only a pain in the butt for your comfort, they can be bad for your health. This is because of the type of fuel gas and oil furnaces use which can be hazardous.
How an Older Furnace can Affect Your Health:
Because your old furnace runs on oil or gas, it’s susceptible to becoming a fire hazard purely because of its nature.
A build-up of dust, debris, pollen and allergens in your vents can wreak havoc on family members that might suffer from respiratory issues. Dirty or incorrectly fitted air filters can have the same effect. A new furnace could help mitigate this problem.
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
Older furnaces can produce carbon monoxide. Exposure to this can harm the health of you and your family. Check out the pilot in your furnace. The color of the pilot flame should be electric blue. If it’s yellow, you might have a carbon monoxide leak, and you should call a Furnace professional immediately.
