When it’s cold outside, there’s nothing quite like coming home to a warm and toasty living room where you can sit down and relax at the end of the day. But if your furnace is on the fritz, your home is anything but comfortable. In fact, during Minnesota’s harsh winters, keeping your home’s furnace operable can literally be a matter of safety.


At Furnace Doctors in Little Canada, we are experts in keeping your furnace maintained and working throughout the year. We’ve put together this guide to help you understand some of the most common furnace problems your home might face and how we can help.


1.      Malfunctioning Thermostat

A faulty thermostat can be an agent of chaos in your furnace system even if your heating system is working great. That’s because it gives your furnace the wrong information about when to turn off and on. This can cause all kinds of problems with the temperature in your home.


2.      Faulty Ignition Problems

Problems with the ignition in your heater will mean your furnace is not able to heat your home properly. One sure sign of a faulty ignition is that your heater has trouble cycling. When it shuts off unexpectedly while it’s cycling, this may indicate a problem with your ignition. Our furnace repair experts can assess the problem and get your furnace running smoothly again.


3.      Dirty Filters

Dirty or clogged air filters in your home can wreak havoc on your furnace. In fact, it’s one of the biggest reasons we see furnaces break down to begin with. Because the flow of air is blocked when a filter is dirty or clogged, your furnace has to work much harder. This can put too much strain on your system and lead to failure.


4.      Cracked Heat Exchanger

Cracks in the furnace’s heat exchanger are another common problem homeowners often face. During our furnace maintenance, we can check your furnace for cracks in your system so you don’t have to worry about any safety issues in the future.
