Top 5 Furnace and Heating Problems in Memphis

February 03, 2015

We have discussed common air conditioning problems, now we’d like to outline the common heating problems Memphis homeowners often call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning about. Although there are potentially hundreds of reasons why your Memphis home’s furnace or heating system may need to be repaired. Here are the top five problems that may cause your furnace or heating equipment to break down:

1. Thermostat breaks resulting in no heat, fan spinning or comfort problems

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

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

4. Pilot light or furnace ignition issues, resulting in intermittent or no heat

5. Lack of regular service may cause unforeseen breakdowns, poor comfort or increased energy costs (plus a lot of homeowner frustration!)


All of these common issues can be resolved by a professionally qualified, NATE-certified technician. Technicians from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can quickly diagnose the problem area and make the required repairs. Getting a
precision tune-up or maintenance plan could advert almost all heating problems that leaves your home with no heat or low comfort levels. When you get a tune-up, all the components are checked and serviced so they work correctly and at peak efficiency during the heating season. Important items like Carbon Monoxide checks, ample combustion air, equipment clearances, and equipment safety are also primary elements to the tune-up process. Most importantly – safety first! Never forget that furnaces of any age have the potential to pose safety hazards from combustion or gases, especially if a NATE-certified technician has not maintained the equipment on a scheduled basis.
