Top 5 Furnace and Heating Problems in Edmonton

February 03, 2015

We have discussed common air conditioning problems, now we’d like to outline common furnace and heating issues Edmonton homeowners often call Rob's Albertan Service Experts about. Although there are quite possibly hundreds of explanations why your Edmonton home’s furnace or heating system may need to be repaired. Listed below are the top five issues that may cause your furnace or heating equipment to break down:

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

2. Air circulation problems from fan motors, belts and bearings, causing furnace excessive heat or poor heating control

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

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

5. Lack of regular service may cause unforeseen breakdowns, poor comfort or escalated energy costs (not to mention homeowner frustration!)


Every one of these common issues can be fixed by a professionally qualified, NATE-certified technician. Technicians from Rob's Albertan Service Experts can quickly diagnose the problem area and make the needed repairs. Purchasing a
precision tune-up or maintenance plan could protect you from almost all heating problems that result in 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 maximum efficiency during the heating season. Important items like Carbon Monoxide checks, plenty of combustion air, equipment clearances, and equipment safety are also top elements to the tune-up process. Remember – safety first! Never forget that furnaces of any age have the potential to pose safety hazards from combustion or gases, particularly if a NATE-certified technician has not maintained the equipment regularly.
