Furnace not Turning on

There are a couple of common furnace problems that don’t need extensive servicing and you can try to troubleshoot yourself before calling on a furnace technician. Give us a call if any of these do-it-yourself steps make you feel uncomfortable. A few dollars saved are not worth the risk of dangerous furnace-related accidents.

Check the Gas Supply

Check and make sure the main gas valve on a pipe supplying the furnace is completely open.

Check the Electricity Supply

Another possibility is that the thermostat or the furnace itself may have been affected by a breaker trip. Check your breaker box to see if any of the breakers are tripped.

If the furnace breaker is tripped, switch the breaker to the “On” position. Do not attempt to reset the breaker if it trips immediately and pops back to “off” instead. Call a professional.

Your furnace has a dedicated safety switch positioned near or on your furnace. Double-check to ensure it’s set to “on”.

Other Issues

Thermostat – Many furnace issues are simply thermostat issues. Because the furnace either receives incorrect instructions from the thermostat or no signal at all.

Make sure the thermostat display is on and change the battery if needed. Ensure that the thermostat is set to “HOT” rather than “OFF” or “COLD”. Set the thermostat’s temperature 5 degrees higher than the room temperature. If your furnace hasn’t started after a few minutes, make sure your heater has power by switching the fan switch from “auto” to “on”.

Air Filter – Furnace filter issues may limit the furnace’s airflow reaching the blower and create delay or blockage in the ignition. It could even cause the furnace to overheat completely. Check your furnace filter, especially if you haven’t changed or clean it in a while.

Exhaust Pipe – Vents allow gas furnaces to discharge their exhaust outside. The furnace operation may be affected and there may be safety risk if vents become blocked. Check the outdoor vent to determine whether debris or snow block the flow of exhaust gas.

Drain Pan – Condensate pans, often called drain pans, collect moisture that your furnace extracts from the air. If your furnace is spilling water or the pan is overflowing, check the float switch if the pan has a pump. This can trigger the safety switches in your furnace and shut the ignition off.

If your pan has a drain pipe , make sure it isn’t blocked. If you need to drain it, get a special pan-cleaning tablet from a home improvement or hardware store or call a professional to clean it for you.

Access Panel – If the furnace door is open, a safety switch in the furnace prevents the blower fan from working. As a result, check your furnace access panel to make sure it is securely in place.

Insufficient or No Heat

There are several possible causes if your furnace stops providing heat or only blows chilly air. You can diagnose and fix some of the issues by yourself.

  • Ensure the furnace has power and the gas supply valve is completely open
  • Check the thermostat settings
  • Make sure all heat registers are open
  • Check the filter and clean it or replace it
  • If you still having problem contact us

Short Cycling

Short Cycling is when your furnace frequently is turning on and off. While this behavior may be normal and necessary in the really cold days of Toronto’s winter to keep your home at a comfortable temperature, otherwise, it may indicate a problem with your furnace. There are several possible causes for this problem including:

Failing Flame Sensor – A flame sensor is a crucial safety component in a furnace since it guarantees that there is a burning flame within your furnace. As the gas valve opens to start the combustion process, electricity flows from the sensor to detect heat from flame.

When the sensor senses a flame and all elements are in excellent working order, the heating continues. A faulty flame rod instantly shuts off the gas supply after the flames are being lit , causing furnace short cycling.

Dirty Furnace Filter – A dirty filter blocks or restricts the air circulation throughout your home’s HVAC system. It also causes your furnace to work harder to compensate for the obstruction of airflow and can lead to furnace overheating and escalate other more significant furnace issues.

Blower Motor – The blower motor of your furnace is another crucial component of your home’s central heating system. It blows air over the furnace heat exchanger and sends the heated air throughout your home using the ductwork. A malfunctioning blower can cause overheating and short cycling as well.

Clogged Exhaust Flue – The combustion process of a gas furnace produces harmful gasses, including carbon monoxide, which are released through the vent pipes outside of your house. If the exhaust pipe is clogged or restricted by snow, leaves or other debris, your furnace shuts down to prevent carbon monoxide from spreading in your house.

An Oversize furnace – An oversized furnace quickly and causing uneven temperatures throughout your house causing short-cycling of your furnace and causes excessive wear-and-tear and prematurely age the components.

Noisy Furnace

The majority of furnaces produce some noise when they run but some noises like Clicking, Banging, High-pitched squeal or whistling, Humming or buzzing and Rattling need to be inspected and fixed. If your furnace makes unusual noises you want to turn it off and ask a professional to inspect and diagnose the problem.

Furnace Produces Strange Smell

When your furnace is turned off during the warm months of spring and summer, dust accumulates. When you first turn on the furnace when the seasons change, this dust will burn off, sometimes leaving a faint burning smell throughout your home. This smell is quite natural and will go away within a day as you use your furnace. If you smell burning plastic, rotten egg or smoke it’s best to shut off the furnace and contact a HVAC professional to check your furnace.

Furnace is Leaking Water

Condensation will happen due to the addition of the second heat exchanger to the high efficiency furnace (90% efficiency and higher). Condensation pipes in condensing furnaces transfer the water created when the burning fuel cools to a drain. If your furnace leaks water in winter, the reason can be that the condensation line becomes blocked or develops a leak. Water leaks also can be caused by cracked or damaged water lines of furnace humidifiers. Contact a HVAC technician to investigate the problem.

Having your furnace inspected and serviced annually or as the manufacturer recommends, can save small problems from becoming big issues and costly repairs.
