4 Common Furnace Problems Plaguing West Haven Homeowners, West Haven, Connecticut

As the snow starts to fall and the temperature continues to drop, the last thing you need is for your furnace to break down. Unfortunately, your heating system is susceptible to numerous issues, and there’s never a convenient time for a breakdown. Apple Oil is West Haven, CT’s favorite supplier of home heating oil, and they also specialize in furnace repair.

Their number one goal is to keep you warm this winter, which is why they’ve compiled this list of the most common furnace problems: 

  • Broken Thermostat: The thermostat is the heart of your heating system. It allows you to control the temperature and regulates how much heat is produced. When this temperature sensitive switch breaks, the furnace stops producing heat. Make sure you check your batteries on Digital thermostats every season.
  • furnaceAir Circulation Problems: If you’re nice and cozy in one room but start shivering as soon as you enter another, your furnace isn’t circulating the heated air properly. The problem often stems from malfunctioning fan motors, zone damper motor, zone panel malfunction, or duct work problems. Your furnace could be producing too much heat, or the air temperature may not feel like it matches the thermostat reading.
  • Frequent Cycling: A common complaint regarding furnace function is that the system continuously turns on and off. It doesn’t stay on long enough to heat the space, and this constant cycling puts extra strain on the motor. Possible causes include a disrupted air flow, aquastat setting is too low or the thermostat setting is wrong.

Determining the cause of the problem is the first step in furnace repair. The technicians at Apple Oil face these issues on a daily basis, and they have the skill and knowledge to offer you an effective solution.
