February 03, 2015

We have discussed common air conditioning problems, now we’d like to share the common heating problems Salt Lake City homeowners often call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning about. Although there are theoretically hundreds of causes why your Salt Lake City 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 glitches causing no heat, fan spinning or comfort problems

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

3. Dirty or clogged filters which develops airflow and comfort problems

4. Furnace or heating system pilot or ignition control problems, resulting in sporadic or no heat

5. Inconsistent maintenance history may cause unforeseen breakdowns, poor comfort or higher energy costs (in addition to emmense homeowner frustration!)


All of these common issues can be addressed by a professionally qualified, NATE-certified technician. Technicians from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can quickly detect the problem area and make the necessary repairs. Getting a
precision tune-up or maintenance plan could protect you from practically all heating problems that leave you with no heat or low comfort levels. With a proper tune-up, all the components are checked and serviced so they operate correctly and at maximum efficiency during the heating season. Vital items like Carbon Monoxide checks, ample combustion air, equipment clearances, and equipment safety are also primary 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 on a scheduled basis.
