3 Common Gas Furnace Repairs
Gas furnaces are made to be durable, but it is likely that at some point, you will need make repairs to your system. Certain parts tend to be more prone to repair than others as we’ll explain below, but it’s important to always call a professional for help with any heating system repairs.

- Blower issues – your furnace has a large blower that pushes the warm air through your ductwork into your living spaces. Some common problems our technicians see with blowers are issues with the motor, electrical issues with wiring and capacitors, and problems with the fan itself, including bent or loose fan blades and worn fan belts.
- Problems with the burner – the burner is the component that heats the heat exchanger in your system. If the burner has become excessively rusty and dirty, this can impede all the burners from lighting appropriately, and affect the overall operation of the burner. Burners can also rust and corrode, in which case the burner needs to be replaced.
- Pilot won’t stay lit – if your system has a standing pilot light, this light needs to stay lit in order to fire up your system. Sometimes this light can be blown out accidentally, in which case re-lighting it re-establishes the flame. Other reasons the pilot may not light can include problems with the thermocouple or an issue with the pilot line that provides the gas that keeps the pilot lit.
Gas furnace repairs can be complex, and because combustible fuel is involved, there is always a level of safety to be concerned with. This is why it’s important to hire a trained professional to handle your heating repairs.
