What are the common causes for furnace repair?
Some of the common causes of why you may need a furnace repair due to a breakdown include:
- Breakdown due to lack of maintenance – if you are without heat and haven’t been keeping up with routine maintenance on your furnace, this can be one of the culprits. About 90% of furnace breakdowns can be traced back to a lack of regular maintenance. Although this is the most common type of breakdown, it is also the most preventable. Be sure to schedule annual maintenance of both your furnace and air conditioner prior to the start of the season.
- Old age – the average furnace lifespan is between 15-20 years. The parts in the system can only function for so long before they need to be replaced, and if your system is at its age limit, replacement is often cheaper than trying to salvage the old unit with new parts.
- Extreme cold – Let’s face it. Fort Wayne winters can be downright brutal. Extreme cold temperatures, especially when we are in the negative, can cause your furnace to work harder to keep up with the heating demands of your home.
- Dirty air filter – a dirty air filter is a common cause of a furnace shutting down. Be sure to change your filter monthly, as the buildup of dirt and debris on your air filter can cause the furnace to malfunction.
These are just a few of the many causes which could lead to a furnace repair. Remember, our friendly and NATE Certified technicians are available 24/7 for all of your heating repair needs. Trust the professionals at MJM to get you back up and running quickly! Click here to request a furnace repair!
