Troubleshoot Your Furnace Problems

If your furnace isn’t providing you with the comfort you desire, there are a few things you can check by yourself before calling a furnace contractor for help.

  • CHECK THE AIR FILTER - Many people overlook the furnace’s air filter, but the importance of a clean filter can’t be overstated. Dirty and clogged air filters can cause restricted air flow and decreased efficiency, both of which make your furnace work harder than it has to, which reduces its lifespan.
  • DOUBLE CHECK THE THERMOSTAT - If you’re not getting the heat you want, the first thing to check is the thermostat settings. Make sure it’s set to Heat instead of Cool and that the desired room temperature is higher than the current temperature. Also, make sure the thermostat’s battery is working and replace it if needed.
  • OPEN THE AIR VENTS - Some people think you can save energy by keeping the registers shut in the rooms you’re not occupying. However, if you close too many registers, it increases the furnace's pressure and makes it work harder to heat your home. An overworked furnace can lead to failed blower motors, compressor damage, and cracked heat exchangers.
  • CHECK THE CONDENSATE DRAIN - Moder high-efficiency furnaces can drain up to several gallons of water every day, so if the drain lines are clogged, it can cause the furnace to shut down.

If you’ve checked everything possible, but your furnace is still giving you fits, contact the experts at Home Squad for help.

How to Know You Need a New Furnace Installation

At Home Squad, we know how much of an expense and hassle it is to put in a new furnace. However, sometimes we have to let the old things go and upgrade. Here are the top warning signs that signal it’s time to replace your worn-out furnace.

  • AGE - The average gas furnace lasts between 15 and 18 years. However, if your furnace is over 15 years old, it’s recommended that you replace it with an ENERGY STAR rated model that is more efficient. A more efficient furnace will be more reliable and save you money on your energy bills.
  • INCREASE IN HEATING BILL - Your heating bills can rise for various reasons, but if you’ve properly maintained your furnace and ducts and still find your heating bill rising, it could be that your furnace is on its last legs.
  • FREQUENT REPAIRS - Furnaces require more repairs as they age, and like repairing an old car, you get to a point where it doesn’t make financial sense to continue throwing money at a system that’s past its prime. If you’ve had more than two furnace repairs in the last year, it’s time to consider a replacement.
  • THERMOSTAT CAN’T MAINTAIN COMFORTABLE TEMPERATURE - Do you find that some rooms are too hot while others are too cold? If you’re constantly fiddling with the thermostat to stay comfortable, it could be that your furnace can’t properly distribute heat evenly through your house.
  • YELLOW BURNER FLAME - If the burner flame is yellow instead of blue, it could mean that the system is producing carbon monoxide, which is potentially dangerous.

If you’re not sure if you’re ready for a new furnace or not, call our experts for a furnace inspection.

If you want the benefits of central AC without the expense, consider installing a ductless mini split system.

  • Do I Need an Earthquake Valve?
    Depending on where you live, you may be required to have an earthquake valve in place by law. However, even if it is not legally required, putting in an earthquake valve is still a good idea if you live in areas prone to this type of seismic activity. Home Squad Home Services and Repair has been installing these devices for our customers all around the Bothell, WA area for years. We would be happy to discuss your individual situation with you and help you determine whether or not an earthquake valve is a reasonable precaution for you to take.
  • What Are Earthquake Valves?
    Earthquake valves automatically shut off the gas supply to your home in the event that major seismic activity is detected in the area. When motion of a certain magnitude is present underground, a mechanism in the valve will be triggered and cut off all gas flow to your home. The action of an earthquake can cause damage to gas lines and pipes. Cutting off the gas can help prevent any fires or explosions caused by those damages, potentially saving your home. These fires and explosions are often more damaging than the actual earthquake.​
  • When is a Ductless Mini Split System a Better Choice?

    You’ve probably heard of a ductless mini split system but aren’t sure if one of these systems is right for your home. Well, sometimes these are actually the better choice and here’s why.

    The mini split system provides more flexible solutions as opposed to the standard HVAC. Heat pumps and central air systems force cold and hot air through ducts while mini split systems deliver air directly into the desired room, which makes it easier to get the precise temperature and requires less energy.

    Because ductless mini split systems don’t lose energy through improperly sealed ductwork, they operate more efficiently, which saves you money. Also, as mentioned, these units require less power to do the same job that an HVAC system does, which also increases your energy savings.

    Since HVAC systems and heat pumps force air through ductwork, it’s not uncommon for people to experience poor indoor air quality if the ductwork gets dirty. With a mini split system, you get the option of multi-stage filtration that drastically reduces the amount of allergens, particles, and dust that goes out into your home.

    Finally, if your home doesn’t have ductwork, or you’re living in an apartment, a ductless mini split system is easier and cheaper to install since you don’t have to worry about cutting holes for ducts.

  • What Should I Check Before Calling an HVAC Contractor?

    The warm summer nights here in Washington mean that residents’ air conditioners are working overtime to keep everyone cool and comfortable, and it’s bound to happen that some systems can’t handle the load and break down. If your system isn’t putting out the cold air you desire, or if it’s not firing up at all, here are a few troubleshooting tips to check before you call an AC contractor.

    If the air isn’t as cold as you desire, check that the air filter is clean and make sure there aren’t any obstructions near the outside compressor. Also, check for moisture as it may be a refrigerant leak.

    If the air isn’t blowing, check the thermostat and make sure it’s set a few degrees lower than the room temperature. Also, make sure the thermostat is set to ‘cooling mode’. Check to see if any circuit breakers have been tripped, and of course, make sure the air filter is clean.

    If you experience frequent on/off cycling or a system that won’t shut off, check and make sure an air register isn’t blowing directly on the thermostat, which can cause it to malfunction. Also check your refrigerant levels, and the air filter.

    If you notice ice on the system, it could be that dirty air filter that’s to blame, or check to see if the coils are dirty. Also inspect the vents for obstructions.
