Conventional gas furnaces and high efficiency condensing furnaces are both popular in Beaumont TX. Both use gas burners with electronic ignition. The main difference between the two is the heat exchanger technology used. Condensing furnaces have more efficient heat extraction after combustion. For this reason, condensing furnaces are more complex. However, both present with some common problems.
Even though a furnace repair may be needed as a result of a myriad of factors, there are some repairs that are common with furnaces. If the gas furnace is producing no heat in Beaumont TX, it can be the result of a faulty thermostat, blown fuse, closed gas control valve, non-lighted pilot light or a problem with the hot surface electronic ignition. A blown fuse can easily be replaced, however, we suggest a trained technician for the furnace repair in Beaumont of the remaining issues.
Many times, furnaces do not produce enough heat. This situation can be caused by a dirty furnace air filter, dirty burners or obstruction in air flow to the combustion air chamber. You can replace the dirty furnace air filter with a new one to see if that fixes the problem. If the gas burners need to be adjusted, it’s best one of our technicians do the job.
Gas furnaces that cycle too frequently often require a furnace repair. This can happen from a heat anticipator problem in the thermostat or a blower motor malfunction. Repairs typically include lubrication of the motor ports, checking the tension of the belt or replacing a frayed belt.
Another common problem that may require a furnace is unusual noises. Higher pitched squealing sounds are often a result of the blower belt slipping. Lower rumbling sounds typically indicate a poorly adjust pilot light. Dirty gas burners can cause a lower rumbling sound also. General repairs include replacing a frayed belt, adjusting belt tension, lubricating motor ports, adjusting the burners and adjusting the pilot light.
A furnace repair in Beaumont may be needed for the intermittent pilot of the hot surface ignition. Keep in mind that the newer furnaces do not rely on a standing pilot for ignition of the gas burners. When the thermostat is set for heat, the intermittent pilot system ignites the pilot through a high voltage electrical spark. With a hot surface ignition system, a controlled heating element ignites the gas burner.
