Because Things Sometimes Go Wrong
Common Problems Requiring Furnace Repair
Understanding the common problems associated with gas furnace repair can help you assess whether you have a simple, quick fix problem or something more serious:
- No heat: first check the thermostat to determine if it’s set too low or may not be working properly. Next, check the circuit breaker or fuse; determine if the natural gas or propane control valve is closed
- Furnace turns on and off too often: if your air filter is dirty or your motor isn’t working efficiently, your system may be off balance
- Blower does not turn off: check your thermostat to determine if it’s set to blow continuously
- Noisy system: not properly lubricating the motor or having proper belt tension can cause your system to produce a squealing or squeaking noise
- Pilot light goes out: could be caused by a strong draft, dirt in the tube or orifice
Other issues you may encounter include a faulty thermostat, mismatched furnace and thermostat or a problem with the electronic ignition.

Homeowners often wait for gas furnace repair until something breaks – typically during the dead of winter. Because many homeowners don’t use their furnace until the weather turns cold, it’s impossible to know if underlying problems exist until the first frost arrives.
Instead of being left out in the cold, consider having your gas furnace maintenance in early fall, before the chill sets in. Once winter hits, you’ll need your gas furnace to be working at optimum efficiency. Having it go down during a cold winter spell is not pleasant.
Get ahead of Old Man Winter by calling Central Oregon Heating and Cooling. Our team of gas furnace experts can perform a complete pre-winter inspection to ensure all elements are in working order.

Electric Furnace Not Working Right?
First make sure your filters are not dirty, and then check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breaker. If it still isn’t working, look at the condensing unit…. is the air flow obstructed or is there vegetation too close to the condenser? Has something fallen through the grill and is blocking or has bent your fan blades? Are the furnace wire connections loose? You don’t care about the details…. You just want your furnace to work properly when it’s cold outside. Consider a Maintenance Contract with Central Oregon Heating and we will keep your furnace in tip top shape.
