New Furnace Installations
Our knowledgeable technicians can assist with the following furnace repairs and issues:
Broken thermostats can result in no heat, no fan to force the hot air throughout your home, or intermittent heat that results in being cold and uncomfortable.
Cycling between “on’ and ‘off’ may indicate a clogged filter, improper airflow, or a broken thermostat.
Rumbling, squeaking, and rattles aren’t normal. Could be worn out ball bearings. Indicated by a scraping sound. Turn off the furnace immediately and call us. Could be the blower belt. Indicated by a high-pitched squeal. Another cause of loud sounds may indicate a mechanical problem or a clogged burner.
No Hot Air – The furnace doesn’t heat at all
A furnace that doesn’t perform its main task may have problems with the thermostat setting, power, gas, or the pilot light. In addition to a clogged filter, a furnace may not produce enough heat if it’s the wrong size for the space.
Dirty or clogged air filters reduce airflow, making a furnace work harder to circulate. In some cases, a clogged filter may damage the limit switch, which controls the fan.
The blower continuously runs
Blower issues may indicate a problem with the limit switch, which a professional may need to replace.
Electric ignition or pilot control problems
A faulty ignition or pilot could make it difficult to heat a home or commercial space. Thermocouple problems, drafts, or clogs in the appliance may result in an unlit pilot light.
Wear and tear
Normal wear and tear can cause airflow problems, heat control-related problems, or even overheating.
Furnace Tips and Advice
Change the air filters
Dirty air filters lead to a multitude of furnace problems. Clean or replace the filter once a month, according to the manufacturer’s directions.
A furnace repair professional can show you how to do this. A furnace filter is usually installed where the return duct enters your furnace. It removes particulates from the air before it moves into the furnace equipment and is heated. A furnace filter will remove all kinds of particulates, including dust, dust mites, pollen, pet dander, bacteria, spores, and more.
Make sure all household vents are free
Make sure that all vents in your home are open and free of boxes or other household items blocking the path, check that furniture is adjusted to allow air to flow freely. Closing a vent down or blocking it can cause the furnace to work harder, eventually damaging it before its time.
Remove all flammable objects from around your furnace
Your furnace isn’t designed to operate with storage containers built around it. Anything combustible – clothes, paint, aerosols, gasoline, boxes and other household items should never be placed in the general surrounding area of your furnace or water heater.
For gas furnaces, verify the exhaust flue to the outside is clear
There are three main reasons an exhaust flue needs regular attention: carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, and sulfur dioxide. These three elements can be found in the fumes from your furnace, especially if it hasn’t been serviced in a while. If the exhaust flue is blocked and isn’t allowing air to freely move from inside the system to the outside of your home, problems occur quickly.
And they can cause very nasty health side effects:
- Heart palpitations
Combustion gasses might not be drafting safely up your flue because of blockage or back drafting. If you suspect a problem, call immediately and have it checked out.

These are the signs that you may need to replace your old furnace:
Dangers of an Old Furnace
Many old furnaces run on gas or oil. Naturally, many of the dangers of these old furnaces have to do with their heat source and the age of the furnace. While gas furnaces are an efficient method of heating your Sacramento home, old furnaces can pose an array of health and safety concerns. Some of the dangers of an old furnace are:
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning:
Perhaps the biggest danger of an old gas furnace is carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide is an odorless and colorless gas that can cause nausea and dizziness. Overexposure to this gas is deadly.
Without proper ventilation, old furnaces are a fire hazard. It is important to keep any flammable materials away from your old furnace as this increases the chance of a fire.
Another danger of an old furnace is potential gas line leaks. Not only can this make you sick, like carbon monoxide poisoning, but it can also put your home at risk for a furnace explosion.
Common Warning Signs of a Problem Furnace
With the danger of an old furnace being so risky, it is important to look out for some of the warning signs that accompany them. Remember, when assessing your furnace for these warning signs, be extremely careful. Some of the common warning signs of an old furnace are:
Burner Flame Color:
Your furnace’s burner flame should be blue. If the flame is flickering or has a yellow color, you should contact us immediately as this could be a warning sign of carbon monoxide or a gas leak.
Higher than Usual Energy Bills:
If your gas or electric bills have risen and are higher than usual, your old furnace could need to be repaired or replaced. Keep a close eye on your energy bills, this could be a sign of increased risks to your home and health.
Since carbon monoxide is odorless, it can be difficult to tell if there is a leak. However, if you or your family have been experiencing flu-like symptoms, it could be a carbon monoxide leak.
