Gas furnaces heat enclosed living spaces with propane or natural gas. While gas is frequently portrayed as an expensive source of heat, gas furnaces burn cleaner than oil furnaces and require fewer repairs. When problems do arise with gas furnaces, though, they’re usually easy to spot and fix. The following are four frequent problems with older gas furnaces, as well as what you may expect in terms of repairs.

There is no heat produced by a furnace.
If your gas furnace isn’t producing heat, it’s most likely due to a closed control valve, a blown fuse or tripped circuit, a defective thermostat, or a non-functioning pilot light. While you could fix these issues yourself, if you aren’t familiar with gas furnaces, it’s advisable to call a gas furnace repair service (i.e. a heating and cooling business). Regardless of which of the above problems your furnace is having, an HVAC repair specialist should be able to remedy it the same day, and none of the problems will cost a lot of money to correct.
Insufficient Heat is Produced by a Furnace
It’s possible that your furnace is producing less heat because the blower is clogged, the blower belt is loose, or the filter or burner is unclean. These issues can potentially happen at the same time. A furnace that provides insufficient heat as a result of one of the foregoing faults may typically be remedied the same day at a low cost, just like a furnace that produces no heat. If a gas furnace repair professional says the problem is caused by one of the above problems but that some of the others are on the way, save money and have them all fixed in one visit.
