When You Should Repair Your Furnace

We’ve been conducting emergency furnace repair in Toronto long enough to have seen it all. Here are some of the most frequently-arising gas furnace issues we look for:

1. The Furnace Won’t Start

There isn’t a lot that’s more disappointing in the experience of homeownership than a furnace not turning on. Unfortunately, it can be a somewhat complex problem to diagnose, as there are many factors at play.

The simplest culprit for a gas furnace not working would be your thermostat, which may have reset itself or simply be in the wrong setting, and therefore fail to notify your furnace to turn on. Other issues could include trouble with pilot lights, circuit breakers, or even a lack of fuel.

2. The Furnace Is Not Producing Enough Heat

There are two big possibilities when it comes to a furnace that isn’t providing the correct amount of heat: issues with the gas burners, or a clogged airflow.

Airflow can be negatively impacted either by the filters for your furnace themselves (which require regular replacement) or when vents and ducts are blocked.

Malfunctioning burners, meanwhile, are a more complicated issue to diagnose and will require a professional to open up the system and determine what is going wrong.

3. Loud and Annoying When Running

It’s not uncommon for a furnace to run loudly—but when you notice a change in the sounds your furnace is making, particularly if it’s becoming much louder, it can signal trouble.

High-pitched noises can be a sign that the blower belt is slipping or that parts need oil. Low-pitched sounds can be a sign of burner trouble.

  • Choose the best fuel type for your budget (natural gas, electricity, fuel oil)
