4 Common Furnace Problems That a Tune-Up Can Correct

The furnace is the unsung hero of the home throughout the fall and winter (and even part of the spring) seasons. We expect our furnaces to quickly heat the home without losing too much energy after months of disuse, yet we rarely give the furnace the care it needs to run efficiently. A tune-up can help you catch some of these common furnace issues before they become more expensive and time-consuming to correct:


  • A damaged heat exchanger. Your heat exchanger is one of the costliest parts of a furnace to repair. Regular tune-ups can help prevent the heat exchanger from becoming cracked.


  • A malfunctioning thermostat. The thermostat dictates how much energy the furnace will use, which can have a significant impact on your monthly heating bill. Regular tune-ups can prevent you from seeing a nasty surprise at the end of the month.


  • Worn out ball bearings. The ball bearings are the gears inside your furnace that keep it operating. Keeping your ball bearings up-to-date and replacing them as needed can help your furnace run quietly and efficiently. Is your furnace already making a scraping noise? If so, you should call for a heater replacement in Gloucester County and turn your system off immediately.


  • Annoying cycling issues. Does your furnace keep turning on and off? The problem may be located in the air duct. Tune-ups involve regular filter cleanings and replacements, preventing that familiar clicking of the system recycling.
