Top 5 Furnace and Heating Problems in Ogden

February 03, 2015

We have discussed common air conditioning problems, now we’d like to outline problems related to heating that Ogden homeowners often call Barlow Service Experts about. Although there are quite possibly hundreds of causes why your Ogden home’s furnace or heating system may need to be repaired. Here are the top five issues that may cause your furnace or heating equipment to break down:

1. Thermostat malfunctions producing no heat, fan spinning or comfort problems

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

3. Flithy and clogged filters which develops airflow and comfort problems

4. Furnace or heating system pilot or ignition control problems, resulting in sporadic or no heat

5. Inconsistent maintenance history may cause unexpected breakdowns, poor comfort or higher energy costs (in addition to emmense homeowner frustration!)


Each of these common issues can be resolved by a professionally qualified, NATE-certified technician. Technicians from Barlow Service Experts can quickly spot the problem area and make the required repairs. Purchasing a
precision tune-up or maintenance plan could prevent almost all heating problems that leave you with no heat or low comfort levels. With a proper tune-up, all the components are checked and serviced so they run correctly and at top efficiency during the heating season. Vital items like Carbon Monoxide checks, plenty of combustion air, equipment clearances, and equipment safety are also key elements to the tune-up process. Most importantly – safety first! Never forget that furnaces of any age may pose safety hazards from combustion or gases, this is particularly the case if a NATE-certified technician has not maintained the equipment regularly.
