As fate would have it, the coldest day of the year is the very same day your furnace will break. It is a rule that we all just have to learn to deal with, just like your air conditioner will fail during the longest heatwave of the summer. Everything always seems to happen at the most inconvenient times. While you are waiting for your Bonney Lake furnace repair man to show, here are a few things that could cause your furnace to stop working. Sadly enough, through proper maintenance, this could have been avoided.
Every furnace is equipped with a filter to prevent unwanted dust and dirt from being circulated through your house. If you fail to change this filter at the recommended intervals, it traps too much dust and dirt and cannot properly function. A soiled filter makes your furnace work too hard to circulate the air. This, in turn, puts undo stress on your furnace and could cause breakage. It is best you change your filters regularly or have a seasoned professional do it for you. It could save you lots of money in the long run.
One other common problem that could be the cause of your grief is in the belts and motor. If you have failed to have your furnace properly maintained, you could suffer a broken belt or a problem with the motor. If you would have had your furnace serviced in the fall, the small problems like a loose belt would be noticed and resolved before things start to break.
In the future, call us for maintenance before suffering a furnace breakdown in the middle of winter.
