Your heating system might go down for any one of a number of different causes. We’ll rule out the possibility that your furnace stopped operating because it was trampled by bison and instead provide the most prevalent reasons for a furnaces repair in Hamilton.
Dirty Air Filter
If the filter in your furnace is dirty or clogged, it will force the furnace to work harder to make up for the decreased airflow. If this is the case, not only may dirty air filters cause an increase in your energy usage and electricity expenses, but a dirty air filter that is blocked can also cause damage to the limit switch that regulates the fan on your furnace.
If the thermostat in your home isn’t functioning correctly, you should probably prepare yourself for some frustration. Your system won’t be able to heat the house as efficiently as it should, and your fan could kick on at inconvenient times. The fact that your furnace turns on and off repeatedly because of a defective thermostat is another reason you might need to hire a professional for furnaces repair in Hamilton.
Pilot Light No Longer Works
In most cases, the inability of your pilot light to function properly or of your ignition to function properly will prohibit your furnace from starting up in the first place. There is a possibility that the pilot light on your furnace will not illuminate if there are drafts or obstructions in the furnace or if there are difficulties with the thermocouple.
