Top 5 Furnace and Heating Problems in Austin

February 03, 2015

We have discussed common air conditioning problems, now we’d like to review the common heating problems Austin homeowners often call Strand Brothers Service Experts about. Although there are potentially hundreds of causes why your Austin home’s furnace or heating system may need to be repaired. Listed below are the top five problems that may cause your furnace or heating equipment to break down:

1. Thermostat glitches causing no heat, fan spinning or comfort problems

2. Airflow problems from fan motors, belts and bearings, causing furnace overheating or poor heating control

3. Dirty or clogged filters that cause airflow and comfort problems

4. Pilot light or furnace ignition issues, resulting in spotty or no heat

5. Lack of maintenance may cause unforeseen breakdowns, poor comfort or higher energy costs (in addition to emmense homeowner frustration!)


Each of these common issues can be addressed by a professionally qualified, NATE-certified technician. Technicians from Strand Brothers Service Experts can quickly detect the problem area and make the necessary repairs. Having a
precision tune-up or maintenance plan could advert almost all heating problems that leave you with no heat or low comfort levels. During a tune-up, all the components are checked and serviced so they work correctly and at maximum efficiency during the heating season. Critical items like Carbon Monoxide checks, adequate combustion air, equipment clearances, and equipment safety are also top elements to the tune-up process. Most importantly – safety first! Never forget that furnaces of any age have the potential to pose safety hazards from combustion or gases, particularly if a NATE-certified technician has not maintained the equipment on a scheduled basis.
